Important Healthy Tips: As you may need to wear your garment everyday and/or frequently, it is a good idea to purchase 2 garments. Having two garments will enable you to always have a freshly clean garment, while the soiled one is being washed. When you wear this garment for the first time, you may notice that it is very tight. You may want to wear your garment gradually (or as directed by your physician), such as a few hours the first day and then gradually increasing the number of hours you wear the garment each day until it feels comfortable for you to wear the garment throughout the day. Wearing your garment consistently - everyday and/or frequently - is necessary for a variety of health conditions, as it is a therapy for a condition that you may be treating. For certain conditions, not wearing your garment might actually worsen the condition.
