The Solidea Strong Advanced Micro Massage Compression Bike Short is an innovative medical garment designed to treat symptoms of edema, lymphedema and swelling. Made with Advanced Micro Massage 3D wave knit fabric, these semi-sheer biker shorts stimulate the superficial network of lymphatic capillaries to support the body's natural function to move fluid. The fabric is specially designed to expand and contract on the skin to create a gentle wave of pressure that activates
rather than collapses this aspect of the system. Features include:
12-15 mmHg graduated compression invigorates circulation in the upper thighs
Non-constricting waistband and flat seams
Breathable fabric is embedded with silver ions to reduce bacteria and the chance of infection
Most effective when worn without undergarments and during physical activity
Effective for the treatment of edema, swelling, and lymphedema as well as post-surgical healing
For best results, hand wash using a mild detergent and lay flat to dry. Do not wring. Garments can be machine washed in a lingerie bag with warm water using the delicate cycle and dried on a low temperature setting. Do not use bleach, chlorine, fabric softener or other laundry additives.
Smaller is Better, April 30, 2016 By Anonymous (Kennwick, WA)
My first pair of Solidea Compression bike shorts was a size M. I have a small frame, but was not sure that high compression in a small would be comfortable enough to wear all day. I needed the shorts due to lymphnode removal in my abdomen - to protect me from lymphedema. The M felt comfy, but since I am thin, they slid down and dragged my pants along. When I ordered the size S, the problem ended, and the tighter fit has been better for swelling.
Too much compression, December 13, 2015 By Anonymous (Grafton, WI)
I have Dercum's disease and wanted to try this garment for abdominal and thigh compression. Garment was difficult to get on, and was uncomfortable. I did order a size up. The quality of the garment was excellent, it just did not work for me. I also am a lymphedema therapist, so I felt comfortable with measuring myself and ordering. I would recommend BrightLife Direct for their exceptional customer service.

The shorts are a delight! I did find that when I order another pair, I will get the ones that come below the knee. I need the compression and with the combination of the hose and short, they will be perfect.

Nice product but the length was below the knee for me at 5' 4". Had to return.
