I wore mine for a couple days. It was really rubbing on my arm pits (I’ve got incisions there from my arm lift). Today I wore my Abdominal binder again and some waist cincher leggings. I’ve ordered two pairs of shorts style fajas that’ll be delivered on Wednesday. The full body suit thing isn’t going to work for me until my arm pits are more healed up.

When I had arm incisions I used thin maxi pads or mini pads (can't remember which) to prevent anything from rubbing against them. I just taped them into my arm pit to cover as much as I could. It worked great.

Great idea! I’ll give that a try.

It really helps. I actually use those along my TY incision so my binder doesn’t rub it.

Hi everyone! Has any one struggled with walking enough bc of how cold it is? I live in MI, sleeved on 1/13 and I don’t feel like I get near enough walking done by just walking around the house. Any recommendations are welcome too!

I live in south Texas (Houston)
so don’t have that problem lol anytime it’s been “cold” by Texas standards I still don’t mind walking in it.
Congrats on your sleeve!!

I go out for a run or a walk or a hike every day. If I'm not running, I'll just pile on a bunch of warm clothing plus the appropriate outerwear. I even started wearing my mask during these outings cuz they really help to keep me warm!

(If I'm running I wear much less...for mobility, plus i generate enough warmth with the exertion).

P.S. I'm in Toronto so prolly similar weather as you ❤️

3 weeks PO-
Had an appt yesterday to check everything and all looks great! Still swollen above the incision line on the TT but that’s is completely normal. We took tape off of TT and breasts this week as well.
Almost walking straight up. Feeling great and VERY happy with my results!
