Shopping for Lymphedema wear

Since my Lymphedema started, going out shopping is no fun at all. Finding trousers and shoes that fits the leg and foot is like searching for a needle in a haystack. However, webshopping is something else. How easy and comfy it is to browse from home, having all the shops in the wolrld only a click away, and then having looked and chosen, recieving the goods in my mailbox or at work – how much easier does it get?

Realizing how much hassle some lymphedemapeople have finding clothes and thinking of how I would have liked any tips on this I have launched a page here on the blog with my tips on shopping for Lymphedema clothes.
I have put the link in the right column on the main page, but you can take the fast lane here to check it out now.


  1. I have lymphedema in my left arm from lymph node removal. It sucks big time trying to find clothes! I would love to wear cute summer dresses and tank tops but I'm not comfortable with how one arm is so disproportioned to the other. I have a small frame, which is unfortunate because I tend to wear XL size tops, which really hang on me, but do fit my "hippo" arm, as I call it. has some really nice clothes. I've bought a shirt from them, and they also have a style of pants that has large leg holes and many skirts and dresses.

  2. Hi Dori,
    thanks for your tip, the shop you mention indeed has some nice things.
    I have copied your comment on to the page itself as I learnt commenting on pages is possible, just had to activate it. Thanks again.
