Hello again friends!

about a week before i went in for my surgery i had a co worker talk to me about maybe picking up some Compression clothing for my weight loss adventure. just to hold my loose skin together. im down about 55ish pounds and my tummy is definitely hanging abit. very very uncomfortable as it is pulling on the larger wound on my abdomen where they removed the portion of my stomach.

My question is have any of you tried using compression clothing to help hold stuff together? Im slight afraid to jump in due to if i lose alot more weight witch i am hoping to then the shirts will be way to big and thus not work anymore. But with he current tugging and pulling getting my walks in is very painful, unless I am holding my gut flap up about 6inches witch isn't always feesable when im trying to walk my dog or have to carry something. and will be alot harder when i finally go back to work.

I have been looking at a couple on Amazon. But they only go up to about xll not sure if i need to wait longer before i get the first pair or bite the bullet now and just update as i lose. Hope there is some experience with that somewhere on here you all seem to be great people!

Thank you again,

Komatos

the person whom told you about compression garments is not talking about a "shirt". They are talking about compression shapewear that is like another layer of underwear that goes under your shirt. It should be fairly form fitting to give you the support you need but not so right that it is like sausage in a casing.

When you are looking at the correct garments , I suggest buying the largest size available . It will still fit and give you some support for a while. Buy two and wash one every night so you have a clean one every day, if you sweat a lot.

Not sure your age or Sex so general info here.

yes like spans. There are many brands.

You will need to get the very largest brand you can find,so they will be comfortable as well as supportive

after looking at the link, no , this short is not going to do what you need it to do. .

try searching online for big and tall ?s stores and plus size men's compression wear. Even ladies wear would work and who's gonna know. There is way more available than just amazon
