Underwear For Hyperlipidemia And Lymphoedema Sufferers
Sometimes underwear helps a person to overcome or deal with disorders that cause their bodies to hold onto fat or water. Rubbing against other parts, swelling, itching, chafing or losing moisture in key places. Chaffree is one brand that is providing underwear that gives people with health issues a comfortable pair of underwear.
Hyperlipidemia is where there are high levels of fat in the person’s blood. This elevated fat sometimes deposits in places like the hips and thighs. According to Lifescript.com, the fats that deposit in such locations are known as lipids, and can include cholesterol and triglycerides. There is also Lymphoedema, which is a condition that causes swelling in certain parts of the body, often singularly in one leg or arm.
One woman who has hyperlipidemia is said to have a 99 inch hip measurement. She said she is not unhealthy, does stay active, but suffers from the condition. When she was on the network show, “The Doctors,” she said that she does underwater aerobics and makes healthy food choices. According to The Huffington Post, she set a world record with her hips. A mother of four, Mikel Ruffinelli (opposite) has a 40 inch waist to contrast with the wide hips.
Catherine from the UK who suffers from lymphoedema reported that Chaffree underwear helped her in ways no other brand of underwear had ever been able to do. In her review she said that she bought some knickerboxers from Chaffree, after trying so many other brands. “No digging into my thighs, the waistband is a dream and, no ‘camel toe’. I can sit and move with ease, no hauling and hoking. I will be buying more knickers from you in the future. So comfy. So happy!”
This is only one of many positive reviews that the underwear have generated. The reviewers come from people from all walks of life, who have found the solution to various health and underwear challenges by turning to Chaffree.
There are many challenges that people who have hyperlipidemia or lymphoedema have to battle against with traditional brands of underwear. These include poorly fitting underwear, damp and cold underwear as the fabric isn't wicking and welts and sores where the underwear digs into their body as it is not able to accommodate their size fluctuations. As in many cases with this condition choosing the correct size is very difficult as their body is not the a-typical size especially when (as with lymphoedema)
With knickerboxers and men’s boxer shorts by Chaffree, they can get relief from these problems as the fabric of this specialty brand is soft, stretchy and wicks moisture away from the skin, leaving the wearer feeling cool, dry and comfortable. Whilst Chaffree underwear is not control underwear, it has light control and is body hugging so it fits comfortably on your curves. This is especially helpful when one part of your body is larger than the other e.g. one leg or in conditions such as hyperlipidemia where you may have a small waist but large bum and thighs. The underwear is lightweight, machine washable and quick drying and goes back to its original size after washing which helps with days when the swelling fluctuates.
Itching around the groin area often leads to scratching down there, which progresses to skin irritation, sweating, chafing, jock itch and bacteria growth. Breathable underwear and moisture wicking underwear for men and women can help. Chaffree offers both of these important features in every pair of their undergarments. The stretchy fabric used in Chaffree underwear is known as COOLMAX which is a performance certified fiber. Even when body parts rub together, when the wearer is wearing Chaffree underwear the fabric acts as a barrier therefore giving relief from the problem of chafing.
Chaffree is available for males and females in sizes small through 3XL. They come in women’s’ briefs, women’s’ knickerboxers, and men’s’ boxer shorts. All three styles come in sizes S/M/L/XL/2XL/
