Firm, comfortable fit, September 21, 2016 By Susan Ducey (Silver Spring, MD)(Verified)
I'm pleased with this newer design that I ordered to replace the previous model. Using the measurement chart, the fit on this new sleeve is firm but comfortable. Came through the first washing quite well. Fabric is a little heavier than previous model but still light enough that it wasn't too hot during our August heat wave.
Strong and comfortable for short periods, March 16, 2016 By Fiona
I bought a few of these because I only had the silicon version up until now and I get tired of the silicon sometimes, as does my sensitive skin. These ones without the silicon are ok, but do tend to roll at the top after a relatively short period of time. I am unable to wear these when I fly unfortunately. When flying or on long days out and about, I have to wear a long, Bella Lite sleeve with no silicon underneath my Bella Strong with silicon.
Overall, this garment without silicon is fine and comfortable for shorter periods of wear.
Compression Sleeve and Glove, April 6, 2015 By Anonymous (Shreveport, LA)
BrightLife Direct was very helpful in making sure I got the product that I needed. I had to do an exchange. It was quick, easy and efficient. The customer service people were great and made things as easy as possible.

Have been using for over a year; it definitely helps the swelling and discomfort.

Like the sleeve, price is good and received it in a timely manner. Glad it came with a "Donning Aid"!
Good, December 26, 2014 By Anonymous (Turtle Creek, PA)
Just slightly too tight at the wrist, but over all good. Long sleeved shirts slide well over the compression sleeve. Has good support. Silicone top does not irritate skin like other brands have on my arm.

My biggest complaint is the wrist rolls. This can be a problem when wearing.
After a man's breast surgery, January 22, 2014 By Anonymous (Birmingham, AL)
My husband had Breast Cancer and developed lymphedema after so many lymph nodes were removed to make sure that they were free of Cancer (they were). With rehab and wearing this sleeve he now has no sign of the lymphedema, but on recommendation from his therapist, he does wear it to exercise and play golf just in case.
Too Bad, August 5, 2013 By Carol G (NY)
Fabric appears heavy but doesn't feel heavy. It is darker than my skintone. Wrist band is tight and tends to ride up; sleeve is too short.
