I had a total hip replacement almost a year ago. I still play a lot of softball and had some pain still running. I purchased the hip sleeve and have been wearing it about 2 weeks hoping it would alleviate some pain. I wish I would have purchased it sooner! After 3 weeks (now) I'm able to run with significant less pain. I have purchased the hip sleeve, knee brace, and Trek socks. They are all amazing products.
So I love these products and am eternally grateful, however this hip brace design may need a rework. Fits fine on my thigh but I did not order a girdle! Some of us have bellies and I realize they are marketing to athletes but maybe have one for everybody else? Very uncomfortable. But I can walk!
As soon as I put on the Incrediwear Hip Brace, my pain was relieved! I am very satisfied with this purchase and will recommend it to others.
The item arrived quickly and the packaging was very good. However, this item is NOT for anyone who isn't athletically built or has an ounce of extra weight. I measured carefully to be sure I ordered the correct size but it's very uncomfortable to wear so it sits in my closet.
