LympheDIVAS: Medically Correct Fashion For Lymphedema

Medically correct fashion for lymphedemaIt all began in Philadelphia. Two young friends and breast cancer survivors developed lymphedema, a side effect from breast cancer treatment that can cause permanent swelling in the arms. One of the most effective ways to manage swelling recommended to these young women was to use compression armsleeves and gauntlets.

With much research, Rachel and Robin consistently found compression armsleeves to be hot, bandage-like, heavy and rough. Taking matters into their own arms, they met with a fashion designer to help create their own stylish – and medically correct – compression armsleeves. As a result, LympheDIVAs was born.

LympheDIVAs’ mission is to create “medically correct and fashionable compression apparel for the savvy and stylish breast cancer survivor with lymphedema which will inspire her to feel beautiful, strong, and confident.” One of their core desires is to always bring the latest patterns to their customers, while improving the lives of those managing lymphedema.

Other features of the LympheDIVAs garments include:

  • Moisture-Wicking   Pulls sweat away from the body and is fast drying!
  • Aloe Vera   Unscented aloe vera moisturizing micro-capsules are added for softness and skin protection.
  • 360º Stretch  Knit with 360º stretch, which allows the garments to stretch as your arm bends and flexes, and prevents binding at the elbow.
  • Fine Knit   Produces a smooth surface, lightweight, and replicating a ‘second skin.’
  • Graduated Compression   Available in compression Class 1 (20-30mmHg) and Class 2 (30-40mmHg).
  • Diva Diamond Band   A latex-free, silicone-free gripper applied directly to the inside top cuff of the sleeve. The Diva Diamond Band will keep your garment in place and your skin less irritated.
  • Made in the USA   All garments are knit in North Carolina. They are printed, pressed and shipped from Massachusetts.
