Compression Garment Repair

Postby runnermom » Thu Mar 03, 2011 2:45 pm

I'm absolutely devastated!

I just received my custom compression garment (manufactured by Medi in Germany), and the second time I took it off, I noticed a huge snag near one of the seams. What can I do????

I had to pay sooo much money for this thing and wait sooo long to get it. I don't want it to unravel or anything, but the booklet that came with it says not to attempt self-repair (though it doesn't say what I SHOULD do). I don't know how it snagged, I've been careful, though I just think I must have pulled it up too hard (trying to get good compression through my groin).

Any advise?

If you just got it, I would contact the company and see if they have any way of helping the situation. I also wonder if perhaps it was snagged before it was shipped to you.
