Congratulations on your decision to beautify your precious body! Please take your time when browsing through Bonito’s Info Zone, as you will encounter some basic, yet very crucial information to help you prepare ahead of time, and have the perfect garments on hand when you are having your surgery.
The following instructions apply to Full Body and Legwear Garments:
Find a comfortable chair to sit in
Place both legs through the openings, and pull the garment up your body with your FINGERS ONLY, NOT YOUR NAILS. If you use your nails, you will damage the garment
Alignment is key for you to achieve the ultimate levels of comfort and fit:
Groin: Ensure the groin area is perfectly aligned
Legs: Adjust the position of the inseams, so they are perfectly aligned with the inside of your legs
Stand up, and pull the back of your garment up, so you have a perfect alignment in the groin area in the front as well as in the back
Slide the garment over your arms and/or shoulders (if applicable)
Lay down on your bed with a few pillows behind your back for support
Fastening Hook and Eye Closure (if applicable):
A Stage One Post-Op Garment (0-2 Weeks Post-Op) for mild and gentle compression, will be big enough for you to close the Hook and Eye Closure without too much additional effort.
A Stage Two Post-Op Garment (2-6 Weeks Post-Op) for moderate compression may be a bit more challenging to close, therefore, you must pull and stretch the garment out to the right and the left side of your body, so both sides can meet in the middle, and you can swiftly close the Hook and Eye Closure.
A Stage Three Post-Op Garment (6-12 Weeks Post-Op) for strong maximum compression will be very challenging to put on. You will have to struggle to get into this garment, therefore, take your time (5-10min), be patient, pull the garment up slowly inch by inch, and keep pulling and stretching it out to the right and left side of your body until both sides meet in the middle, and you can swiftly close the Hook and Eye Closure. Don’t be scared thinking you are damaging the fabric. This is a high end Compression Garment, and being pulled and stretched is what it was meant for.
Please keep in mind that the description above may vary slightly, depending on the model type you have selected (for ex. Breast and Chest Models versus Full Body and Legwear Garments)
