- Dry on high heat setting
- Dry on any setting for an excessively long duration
- Wring the garments dry
- Hand wash
- Dry clean
- Use any chemical solvent or bleach, fabric softener or any other laundry additive

How do I put on and take off my garments?
What compression classes do you offer?
We offer compression in 20-30 mmHg and 30-40 mmHg in arm sleeves, gauntlets, and gloves. Compression class names vary regionally, in the United States 20-30 mmHg is Class 1 and 30-40 mmHg is Class 2.
What sleeve length options do you offer?
Our sleeves come in a Short and a Long length. Please don’t be put off by the length names, we don’t have a “Regular” length anymore because we don’t believe that there is a standard arm length, just like there isn’t a standard arm size, by only offering a Short or Long option we hope it will inspire our customers to measure their arm and get the sleeve that will fit them the best. To determine length, measure your arm length from wrist to the top of the bicep; the Short sleeve length accommodates arms 37-44cm and the Long sleeve length accommodates arms 43-56cm. The length formally known at Regular is now called Long.
What size do I need?
What compression class do I need?
It is best to consult your doctor or lymphedema therapist about which level of compression is best to manage your swelling. A doctor or therapist will assess your arm for swelling and develop a plan with you to manage and/or reduce your lymphedema. Each plan is individually tailored for each patient, self-management lymphedema care often includes wrapping, manual lymph drainage massage and wearing a properly fitted compression garment.
Class 1 (20-30 mmHg) is generally for preventative wear for those at risk for swelling and for minor swelling and Class 2 (30-40 mmHg) is for more severe edema.
Should I wear a gauntlet or glove with my arm sleeve?
When wearing a medical graduated medical compression sleeve it is best for lymphedema patients to protect their hand with a compression gauntlet or glove. If a sleeve is worn without a gauntlet or glove then the pressure from the sleeve can push lymphatic fluid into the hand instead of up toward your body. When you wear a sleeve and a glove or gauntlet together you can protect yourself against the risk of this happening. Please discuss this information with your doctor or therapist to decide whether a gauntlet or glove is suitable for you.
Why is my gauntlet/glove wrist loose?
Having double pressure in the wrist from the glove or gauntlet and the arm sleeve can result from improper graduation in the compression and increased swelling. That’s why the glove and gauntlet were specially designed to have no overlapping compression at the wrist when worn with a sleeve.
What is the DIVA Diamond Band?
A latex-free and silicone-free gripper applied directly to the top cuff of the sleeve. The DIVA Diamond Band helps the sleeve stay up and prevents rolling. All sleeves are available with or without the DIVA Diamond Band.
When should I wear my garments?
The amount of time and degree to which you wear your compression garments will depend on the severity of your lymphedema and the self-care program you’ve developed with your doctor and/or lymphedema therapist. If you do not have a self-care regimen developed, it is best to consult with your doctor or therapist to determine when and how often you need to wear your sleeve. We do not recommend that our garments are worn overnight.
Can I request a custom design garment?
If you’re interested in a custom garment design, we would love to work with you to create the compression sleeve of your dreams!
