What is the Difference Between Stage 1, 2, and 3 Garments?

What is the difference and when do you use them? So confused. Also does the material matter?

Difference Between Stage 1, 2, and 3 Garments?

The truth is , that staging post op garments is a good strategy  for  selling the products .  What it really means is that the material gets stronger as weeks go by and you are able to take more pressure on your skin .

Personally i don't like garments with hard non flexible material , since they can hurt your skin and are not comfortable to wear , specially right after surgery. Also it is important to get a breathable material after surgery. Never too loose , and never too tight . 

Each surgeon has their own likes and dislikes .
