Do not. I repeat, Do not. Believe everything that people tell you about this condition. You have to… Have to… HAVE TO… do you own research. Confirm everything that you hear for yourself and validate sweeping statements. Everyone responds differently to treatment and there are far too many variables for any one person to keep up with. This condition is as much trial and error as it is, “Hands up. WTF?!”... and just when you thought that you knew what was going on, the condition will throw you a curveball and something will change. Just wait.
I was told when I got fitted for and picked up my final custom garment that Elvarex fabric (made by Jobst) would last for six months. So, I scheduled my new stocking reorder reminders in six month increments.
Elvarex, based on their instruction manual, will last four months and then begin to breakdown.
Now you know. But, please verify this information for yourself by reading the manufacturer materials that come with your garments.
