Surgeries, Conditions & Terms

A-Z LIST terms are provided to aid in the selection, use and understanding of Products shown on this website. Plain English Descriptions of medical terms are only a layperson's guide for identifying garment options - they are not a medical description or option. When searching, terms can be filtered by the following categories:

CONDITION   Such as lymphoedema, hernia and pregnancy, where a garment can aid treatment, management and wellbeing.

DEFINED TERM   Such as what it means when a product is classified as Available, Seasonal or By Order, and terms used in Terms & Conditions documents.

PRODUCT TERM   Such as Type (Body Suit, Compression Bra, Breast Form), Style (body coverage), Components (fasteners, straps) and Performance (Free of harmful chemicals), Body Measurements and Sizing Chart.

MEDICAL TERM   Such as Apron, Augmentation, Bilateral, Incision and Symmetry that are related to listed Surgeries or Conditions.

SURGERY   Such as Augmentation Mammoplasty (Breast Augmentation), Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) and Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction) where a garment can aid recovery or lifestyle and wellbeing after surgery.

Terms can also be sorted alphabetically by Commonly Called (layperson term) or by Technical Term (likely medical terminology).
