Shopping Day

Today my sister and I went to the mall, where I bought a couple lymphie-friendly pieces. I like these because they’re extremely comfy and roomy – perfect for wearing my compression garments under, yet still cool in the hot weather. Yes, I got them to accommodate my lymphedema, but I also got them because I think they look pretty good, and I’m excited to wear them. Just because we have to adapt to our medical conditions doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice our aesthetic or sense of style – something I’m finally learning!

What sort of clothing do you find most comfortable for you and your lymphedema?

  1. Well, those clothes look great on you. Lymphedema or not. But I’ll pass on the dresses.
