Difference Between Custom-made and Ready-made Garments
The major difference between a high quality compression garment and a garment of lesser quality is the presence of an inlay thread , generally made of Lycra or rubber, which provides a high level of compression consistency. Both custom and ready-made garments used in lymphedema therapy contain this thread, which is woven into the material in a continuous manner. Ready-made or off-the-shelf garments are made from relatively thin and sheer fabrics that are continually knitted in a circular fashion on a cylinder and thus have no seam; varying stitch height and yarn tension create the appropriate shape and size. Generally, these garments tend to be more cosmetic (no seam) and lighter in weight.
