I have a 3 inch vertical scar on each breast from reconstruction. The sheets fit perfectly. They are made with some type of soft mesh that is very thin and comfortable, I don't know that I'm wearing them. I take them off to shower and rinse them off with a foamy soap, and leave them on the sink while I shower. When I get out, I put them back on while they are still wet and then pat them dry. I can't stress enough how easy they are to use. I have had mine for 3 weeks and they are still sticky and in good shape. I believe my scars are just now starting to fade a little. I think the Oleevas may be a little more expensive, but I feel they are worth it.

This sheet is made from some sort of soft mesh that is extremely comfortable. I have been using my sheet for about 3 weeks and I believe my scar is just starting to fade a little. I wear my strip all day and night. I take it off to shower, I wash it with a foamy soap and leave it on the sink while I shower. When I get out, I put the wet strip back on and pat it dry. They are so easy to use! I recommend that you not trim any of it, becase you will need to trim a tiny bit off as it becomes dirty or looses a little stick, especially if you wear jeans or other clothing that rubs it a lot. I think the Oleevas are more expensive than the others, but I think it is worth it.

I have an 18 inch abdominal scar and a 3 inch vertical scar on each breast from reconstruction. The hydrogels were a bit thick and the abdominal piece (which I cut to fit) would not stay in place withou extra tape. The pieces on my breast would stay in place because of my bra, but other wise, they simply were not sticky enough to stay put. Interestingly, it was somewhat inconvient that they can't be worn more than 18 hours, because I would have to take them off while I was at work. It's my opinion that the hydrogels are best suited for a small scar area that doesn't rub against any clothing, and since they only last about 5 days, it's not very enonomical for large scars. I switched to another product after 5 days, so I cannot say how well the scars would have faded from using the hydrogels
