Umbilical hernias can appear as a bulge on the abdomen near the navel or belly button, especially when coughing or straining.

They occur when part of the intestine or fatty tissue bulges through a likely pre-existing muscle weakness near the navel and, whilst more common in women due to pregnancy, are likely to be more acute in men.

Research suggests that surgical repair is a common diagnosis because they incarcerate and strangulate with significantly greater frequency. Depending on the diagnosis, the Surgeon may nominate a compression garment to minimise further damage and improve mobility whilst waiting for surgery or aid after surgery recovery.

A corsetiere was a specialist in making and fitting what today are called lingerie and compression garments.

Their 'art' was founded on knowledge, experience, informed questioning and observation, and brought to life in the fitting room.

As specialist garment fitters, the 'art of the corsetiere' captures the essence of what we do - fit garments to the individual body shapes of men and women.
