This garment is made of a fabric that has four-way stretch and is specially formulated for use after plastic and reconstructive surgery to apply even, universal compression. With its reinforced outside seams, body-hugging, specially-formulated contour design, and easy-to-apply hook and eye and zipper combination, this garment features the latest in garment technology. The garment is designed with the patient in mind. Contemporary Design employed 3D BodyScan technology to ensure that garments hug patients around every curve for a secure, even fit. This garment also uses fabrics, such as Sateen that are the ultimate in comfort. Not only is this garment designed for the ultimate in patient comfort, it is also designed to quicken the healing process with not its compression qualities, but by being self-wicking and antimicrobial. This garment is imparted with a specially formulated ester derivative of Triclosan. Triclosan is a non-toxic and highly effective antimicrobial agent often used in garments and other household items such as hand soap, toothpastes and deodorants. The Triclosan ester compound used in the garment is combined with the dye used in the fabrics and is applied using a specific dying process. This highly technical process ensures that the antimicrobial process is not simply on the surface of the fabric, but is infused into each individual fiber. This results in durable, long-lasting germicidal, fungicidal and antimicrobial properties not found using other application methods. The antimicrobial properties of the fabric will remain effective through 25 wash cycles and is not negatively affected by detergents or bleach.
