Don’t let Hot Flashes stop you

I need some help with my hot flashes! Do you have ideas on how I can manage them and other menopause symptoms?

Yes we do!

Never underestimate the power of a fan. Keep a handheld, battery-operated one in your purse or a fan that is USB for your phone. Some even have a spray feature built in! Easy, quick, and convenient. No need to rely on the location to have a fan for you, or trying to make sure to get a spot close to one.

Dressing in layers is another thing you can do to help ease the discomfort of hot flashes. You can remove a piece of clothing as it comes on, without over shedding!

Cold water is another great idea. Keeping it handy, and even on your side table at night. Cold water makes for quick relief once the hot flash hits. Drink it or pour in on yourself!

What size do I need?

We get this question very often! Which binder will be the best fit post op!

So when measuring for the abdominal binder, we suggest you follow these guidelines:

  • Measure the area below the belly button and above the hips. Do not measure your waist.
  • Do not use your pants size to determine sizing. Each designer seems to have a different opinion on sizing! 🙂
  • Take swelling into account! If you are borderline between two sizes size up. If you are ordering an Abdominal Binder you can purchase a second one at a discount. Then you could get both and have them on hand once the swelling resides.

Questions about Mesh Panties?

When would I need to wear mesh panties?

Mesh panties are perfect to wear right after your surgery, when your incision/s are painful, tender and swollen. Mesh panties are lightweight, stretchy and fit easily over your belly and stitches.

Are these mesh panties washable?

Yes. Machine wash on delicate cycle within a laundry bag like our Silky Sac or handwash. Air dry.

Can I use these mesh panties to hold my peri-pads after c-section? After hysterectomy?

Yes. These panties are perfect to hold post-surgery pads in place.
