Sizing tips for womenHips are the most important measurement on the sizing chart. If you are in-between sizes on the hip, please opt for the larger size. The waist area of the garment can expand one to two sizes up. In some cases, it is best to order two different sizes so you can try them on at home and choose which is best for you. The garments should feel quite snug, but they should also be comfortable prior to surgery.
IMPORTANT TIP - Wear & Wash Routine: Due to the need to wear compression garments continuously for long periods of time, it is recommended that at least two garments are purchased. This will allow one to be washed and air-dried while the other is being worn. That way, you will always have a fresh garment to change into.
Sizing: Ensuring a good fit of your compression garment is essential, so we recommend that you try your garment on when you receive it, prior to surgery. Check that it provides the required compression while remaining comfortable. It is important to do this well in advance of your procedure to allow time for exchanges if needed. Please note that we cannot accept returns of garments that have been used post-surgery.
Garment Care: RECOVA's compression garments can be machine or hand-washed at a maximum temperature of 30°C. Do not use fabric conditioner as it may impair the performance of the fabric. Garments must be air dried to maintain their correct fit and strength of compression. Do not tumble dry, iron or dry clean compression garments, as this can damage the fabric. In the initial days after surgery it is possible that garments become stained. However, it is important not to treat garments with bleach as this will damage the fabric.
Main Functions of Post-Surgery Compression Garments: To provide sustained pressure and support to aid recovery;To improve comfort, control pain and reduce swelling (oedema);To improve body contouring and skin retraction (i.e. minimise sagging);To promote effective blood circulation in the affected area;To help your body flush out fluids and any potentially harmful toxins;To minimise the risk of complications (e.g. infection or thrombosis)

Beige colour not the best for day one post surgery! So I’d get a black one as well as beige, then you wear both dark and light colours and having 2 is great as you can wash one whilst wearing the other
Just wanted to let you know that i am delighted with my order which arrived first thing this morning. It was the first time i had used this site and after reading all the info on sizing, i was dubious as to whether the xxs would fit even though it was the one advised for my measurements but i went ahead and ordered it. Put it on as soon as it arrived as I am only two weeks out of surgery and its amazing. fits perfectly despite looking tiny in packaging. i immediately felt comfortable and fully supported, its better that the one the hospital gave me to wear. great product, i definitely want to order another one in the skintone. its well made, well sized and value for money. whole order was dealt with super efficiently and i would definitely recommend this company Thankyou ,first class service all round.

Excellent! Payment was easy & despite the adverse weather, delivery was in 3 days as promised.I'm so pleased with the quality & design that I recommended it to my friend Lorna who purchased one as well. She in turn has recommended it to her sister and I've also sent the link to my friends in Europe who will undergo similar operations & will need such a garment.I'm very pleased.
Exactly what I was hoping for. Quick shipment to the States. Including shipping, price was still half what my surgeon wanted me to pay for an extra compression garment. Thank you!
Dear Recova Team,Thank you so much for all your help and advice. I have now had the procedure and the garments fit beautifully.I really do appreciate your help with selecting the correct garment and size. I love this particular one and the extended back garment.
