Swelling or Edema

Excessive fluid in the lower extremities, such as swollen ankles, or feet can be comforted by wearing diabetic socks which are non-binding and have a lots of stretch.

Because swelling may be sometimes more pronounced than others,(especially later in the day) shoes, or slippers which close with Velcro-like hook can be adjusted according to the degree of swelling.

Clothing for those with upper body swelling or bloating can be made less restrictive with loose muu muu style dresses, and loose or open necklines.

 A slit-adjustment can be made to fit those with excessive swelling in their arms. A slit can be made in the inner seam of the sleeves (only open as many inches as needed) to make the garment less constrictive and non-binding.
