Review by Binney:

It's BEAUTIFUL!! I put it on and felt about 100% more feminine than in any of my other lymphedema garments. Stood in front of the mirror and contemplated how, come next summer, I might even be able to wear it on some 115 degree day without anything over it. Mmmmm -- nice! But even with a blouse over it, the neckline is very attractive and not a "granny neckline." It's comfortable, relatively easy to don, and the fabric is simply lovely. You must really enjoy making these!
Lymphedema is a very individual problem. For me, this will work to control my lymphedema except when I'm in "swell mode" where it spreads from close to the axilla across my chest toward the center of my body. At that point, my trusty WearEase Slimmer is a better option, with it's higher neckline and fuller coverage. But for simply feeling feminine, the CrissCross Shaper does the job like nothing else I've tried.
I have been meaning to tell you that I wear my Slimmer inside out. That does several things: it makes the prostheses easier to put in and arrange into place; it squishes the prostheses less so they hold their shape better under clothes; and it does a better job of compressing my chest without pressing the prostheses into me. It means that the shiny side of the neckline stitching is visible at the top of my blouses, and that the softer inside fabric is outside instead of against my skin, but that hasn't bothered me particularly. You and I talked earlier about the possibility of a design that put the prostheses on the outside, so I wanted you to know that it's working well for me that way. The CrissCross Shaper works the same way, and I wear it inside out as well.
