Many lipedema patients find it difficult to find something to wear. Generally you should pay attention to flowing and easily falling materials, which flatter your figure and feel good. Avoid tight-fitting clothing that cuts in and is uncomfortable.
Self-help groups are also a good source of inspiration for fashion tips, as people affected regularly exchange their experiences here.
The right fit is particularly important when it comes to compression underwear. The compression pressure must become weaker from hand or foot to the heart. If this is not the case, the edema at the end of the extremity (arms & legs) protrudes even more strongly. Wearing custom-made compression stockings regularly reduces swelling and, above all, should prevent edema from getting worse again.
