Shopping around for the best one.  What CG did you use or what have you bought to use?  What price range was it in?

This one from Marena: http://www.amazon.com/Support-Suspenders-Certified-Compression-Garment/dp/B0017SMRMS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1380408675&sr=8-2&keywords=marena+compression+garment+stage+2 They are a great company. This is shipped directly from Marena and it's a bit cheaper on Amazon than on the company's website. Buying it on Amazon I felt it was competitively priced. I also used this one (Spanx Hide and Sleek hi-rise panty) occasionally : http://www.spanx.com/search;pgid=xkJO0Tsdf1FSRpL3kvSFvgFZ00004HUdnETs;sid=KbarVrA_ysyqVuJ4d_8rUig1mEqSmQHDEHkaqonw?SearchTerm=hide+and+sleek+panty This is a really nice garment. I got the recommendation on it from this site. You may have to be careful, though, about where the hi-cut leg hits with regard to rubbing on your incision. May be worth buying anyway even if it isn't your official Stage 2 garment. I had to wait four months until I stopped having to worry about impacting the contour on my flanks. The liposuction seems to take a while to cure.

Marina brand with the zipper up the side. Given by my PS. had to wear for 3 wks. They are $80-100.

I got a stage 2 long leg with suspenders from makemeheal.com $75 ish? Loved it so much I bought a second one. I started wearing it on day 16 when I returned to work. Right after work I was getting out of it and putting my post op binder back on. I still sleep in my post op LOL 8 weeks today. It just makes me feel better. The stage 2 is amazing. There's a picture of it in my review. I would have gotten a shorter leg but I didnt' want a bulge mid thigh. I have a cincher I wear around the house time to time as well, very comfy (pics of that too) There are lots that people rave about lol this is my personal preference. Never made me hot in the warm weather either! :)

Also, when did you switch from the initial one to your stage 2 CG? How many did you have and how many did you WISH that you would have had. Lol!

I started wearing my stage two on day 16 when I went back to work. I also wore a longline bra that has midsection compression so I was super comfy back to the grind. I put the post op binder back on right after work and kept it on all night. I have 2 of the stage 2's and I imagine I'm going to wear them until the end of the year! lol super comfy and it makes me feel completely secure.
