ANDREA/ANDREW COMPRESSION SHIRT
Designed to address lymphedema and edema in the torso, chest, and upper arms. The Andrea/Andrew Compression shirt is ideal for managing swelling in the chest and torso. Use Juzo’s Soft Compression sleeve and Juzo’s seamless glove for complete compression coverage of the arm, chest wall, and torso.
Foam pads sewn into the garment provide extra compression and coverage for the axilla. Sewn into both sides, the affected side, or with no pad, if you choose. These sewn-in pads provide extra compression for the lateral chest wall and under the axilla.
Sewn-in pads eliminate the hassle of keeping the pads from moving and shifting. However, if you want a chip pad that provides more coverage, the JoviPak post lumpectomy pad and the Solaris Breast Swell Spot work with this garment.
DESIGNED FOR COMFORT
Our double–layered four–way stretch fabric gives the Andrea/Andrew compression shirt breathability and moisture management for maximum comfort. We cut the garment high under the arm for compression on the axilla and shaped the waistband for a more perfect fit. We ensure quality and care in all our work. Seamless body contact inside and out prevents irritation to sensitive areas. Unlike some compression for the torso and chest, this garment features a front zipper. A hook and eye spacer placket underneath protects the skin from the zipper. Therefore, you do not have to step into this garment to get it on.
MILD EFFECTIVE COMPRESSION
The level of compression provided by the garment depends on individual fit. However, Wear Ease products are made to fit different shapes and sizes of torsos. Therefore, a snug and comfortable fit will result in a mild compression of 10-16 mmHg. Choose the smallest sizing you can fit comfortably into. This will give you a snug fit and good compression. Remember, compression should always be snug and comfortable, never painful.

CARE OF THE ANDREA COMPRESSION SHIRT
Care instructions: Wash garments every day or every second day. In addition to cleaning the garment, washing allows the yarns to realign after being stretched during wear. Therefore, washing helps to maintain optimal compression. Machine wash on a gentle cycle in cold water. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Hang to dry.
Fabric Content: Double layer of power mesh (83%nylon and 17% Lycra) latex-free
