Instructions For Use: It is recommended to put your garment on dry skin and to put the garment on right when you first get up from bed when swelling is minimal. You should remove your jewelry, rings, and watches before applying your garment to avoid damaging it. You may want to wear rubber or vinyl gloves such as Sigvaris Rubber Gloves to prevent fingernails from damaging the fabric or avoid pressing your fingernails into the stitching. To pull up the garment, place your thumbs inside and gather the fabric, then place your foot in the garment and adjust the knee and toe areas. Gently pull up the garment, keeping the garment as straight as possible. Avoid rolling, twisting or overstretching the fabric. If you usually apply moisturizer to your legs or arms, it is better to moisturize the skin in the evening rather than just before putting on your garment in the morning. Remove your garment before going to bed.

Garment Care: Proper care will increase the life of your garment. You can hand wash or machine wash your garment with warm water and mild soap or detergent, or with a specialized Sigvaris Washing Solution . Daily washing can extend the life of the garment. Avoid chlorine bleach, fabric softeners, or products such as Woolite. If you’re using a laundry machine, placing the garment in a mesh laundry bag will help protect it while it is in the machine. To rinse off, you may use warm water. You may roll the garment in a towel to remove excess moisture and lay the garment flat or hang to dry. However, you should not wring or twist the garment. While dryers are not recommended, if you must use a dryer then the garment could be dried on a delicate setting or low heat. Avoid ironing or dry cleaning the garment.
The garment is usually replaced every 3-6 months depending on how often you are wearing the garment and how you are caring for it. Typically, if your garment becomes easy to put on, it likely needs to be replaced.
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.
