The challenge with standard compression garments
You probably know this dilemma: wearing compression garments reduces swelling, discomfort, and pain that go along with lymphoedema or lipoedema. But many compression garments can be equally uncomfortable and limit free movement. They often get too warm and leave you feeling sweaty.
The solution: JOBST Confidence
Are you looking for a garment with a better fit designed for more comfort? JOBST Confidence uses a unique and innovative knitting technology that creates a garment truly conforming to your leg’s size and shape. Softer yarns provide more comfort and flexibility while providing the firm support you need. JOBST Confidence also uses a unique built-in moisture management based on two layers designed to keep your skin fresh and dry.

Besides arm sleeves and knee high or thigh high options, JOBST now introduced the new Confidence panty style featuring an innovative design to address the needs of lymphoedema and lipoedema patients. In contrast to regular compression thighs or panties, the seams are ergonomically placed for higher wearing comfort. You can choose between various design options and colors to match your style.

Could I have Lipoedema?
Lipoedema is a medical, long-term, chronic condition that is the accumulation of abnormal fat (adipose tissue) and is unrelated to diet. It particularly affects the lower limbs, however, it can also impact the arms.
