Full Review
I bought both the three-quarter length sleeve and the short sleeve Marena version. According to the measuring instructions, a 12" circumference of the upper arm (my batwings) would mean I should order a size large garment. I am 5'9" and weigh 145 lbs. I ordered a size medium in spite of my pre-surgery measurements and, in hindsight, wish I'd ordered the small or even the x-small. These garments run quite large in my opinion. I had to take out my sewing machine and take it in by another full inch. It was extremely comfortable in spite of the post-op swelling. It closes with a hook and eye closure in the back of the neck (similar to a bra) about 4 inches from the nape down your neck, and has about 5-6 hooks/eyes with three rows of eyes, so it is somewhat adjustable. It is easy to get in and out of even with bruised and swollen arms. The bottom cuff is tighter than the compression arms, but the over the elbow length works quite well. My doc likes a LOT of compression, and I'm having to wear Ace bandages on top of this garment. The good news is that the garment is quite durable and is holding the safety pinned ace bandages quite well! It is easy to launder, blood washes out readily and the garment dries quickly. I would give it an unqualified approval as a stage two garment (but NOT a stage one compression garment) if it weren't for the sizing issues.
