Demystifying Medical Grade Compression Garments and Shapewear
October 19, 2018
Medical Grade Compression Garments and Shapewear can be found in almost any department store and all over the Internet. But what differentiates a good Shapewear Garment from a mediocre one, and which Compression Garments are really “Medical Grade”?
It’s really all about your expectations. If you are planning on going out to a fancy dinner or event, and want to flaunt your cute tight black sexy dress, while hiding some unevenness and cellulite parts of your body to achieve a sleeker silhouette, then a mediocre Shapewear Garment will do. It will last you through the night, and maybe you can wear it a few more times thereafter, but eventually it will lose its compression strength, and become useless to you. Also, after few washes, it will most likely become more and more flimsy.
What is the difference between Shapewear and Medical Grade Compression Garments?
Shapewear Garments are meant to be worn under your clothes to give your body a more flattering shape. The stitching should be on the inside, so it cannot be seen through your clothes
Medical Grade Compression Garments are crucial for your healthy and speedy Post-Op Recovery, and need to be worn after your Plastic Surgery during your Three Post-Op Stages for at least three months, give or take a few weeks, depending on how you convalesce, while offering up the following benefits:
Provide you with a protected, safe, and comfortable feeling
Reduce swelling and pain
Prevent excessive fluid build up
Promote faster healing
Prevent a wrinkled appearance after surgery
Promote an even and flat shape and silhouette, with the least unwanted fat bumps, balls, and ripples
Why are Bonito’s Medical Grade Compression Garments the best in the world?
They are hand-made and hand-tailored by 16 individual Couturiers to ensure a perfect fit and lasting compression
The Bonito State-of-the Art Highest Fabric Blend measures at a pressure rating 20-30mmH, which represents the highest compression ratio in the market worldwide, resulting in perfect compression every time you wear your garment
The Bonito State-of-the Art Highest Fabric Blend has the most powerful 4-Way Stretch Factor, and is the most durable and reliable fabric globally, allowing your garment to return its original size and shape every time after the stress is removed
When your garment is dry, you can place it in the pouch you received it in, and place it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. This will allow the special fibers to reconstitute and recompress, so you have the same compression every time you wear your garment
All stitching is on the outside, in order not to leave any indentations on your skin, or press upon your incisions
Extra Expansion Triangles on arms and legs allow for additional stretch and comfort
Double enforced soft padding around the shoulders/arms, and on the inside along the Hook and Closure Lines to provide extra softness, and the optimum comfort, fit, and feel
