Lymphedema of the arms is all too common among women who have undergone various procedures and/or treatments for breast cancer. Fortunately, by wearing the appropriate compression garment, featuring graduated medical-grade compression, it’s possible to encourage lymph fluid that has accumulated in the tissues of the arm(s) to return to circulation. This helps reduce potentially painful swelling and tenderness, while gently encouraging a return to normal appearance and function in the affected limb(s).
Clearly, lymphedema is no picnic. But who says you can’t have a little fun while combatting it?
That’s the spirit behind our line of decorative compression garment sleeve accessories. MySassySleeve, for instance, is a non-medical fabric sleeve available in a variety of bold patterns, colors, and prints, which present various "statements". These fun sleeves can be slipped on over your medical-grade compression wear to dress the item up, signal a change in mood, celebrate an event, or simply make a statement that your lymphedema—or the condition that caused it—is not the boss of you!
Simulating elaborate, colorful tattoos, these artistic designs come with a variety of inspirational messages; from defiant, to supportive, to appreciative, to simply decorative. A portion of all proceeds from the sale of MySassySleeve products goes to support breast cancer research and prevention. Customers have expressed great satisfaction with these items, noting that they bring a little fun to a condition that’s otherwise anything but a cause to celebrate.
We also offer a line of decorative sleeve covers from Arm Candy to help match your compression sleeve to your outfit—or your mood. From protecting your precious medical-grade compression sleeve from snags, to acting as a conversation starter, these colorful sleeves come in a variety of bold colors. Choose from among Candy Apple, Razzle Dazzle, Marshmallow, and many others to add a dash of excitement to your wardrobe.
