Frequently Asked


FeelWell offers a bespoke service to any individual seeking a high quality compression garment designed for their own unique body type.  FeelWell is the only company to focus specifically on individuals with overweight and obesity. FeelWell Fitting Specialists™ are extensively trained to take up to 21 measurements on any body shape or BMI. These measurements mean that the garment will be comfortable to wear while offering the right amount of compression for different areas of the body. At the consultation, the fitting specialist will also discuss the unique features and customise the garment to suit your needs.


FeelWell compression garments can be customised with several unique features designed to help with a range of needs. For example, daily wear, exercise, after bariatric surgery, hernia support and swimming. FellWell is the only manufacturer to provide custom made compression swimwear. Swimming has many benefits and is low-impact meaning it puts less pressure on the joints compared to other forms of exercise (e.g. running, walking). The swimwear is still a compression garment and so offers the benefits of increased mobility, improvement in posture and better silhouette.



All garments are created from durable, high performance materials that won’t wear out from daily use or frequent washing. Fabrics are breathable and moisture-wicking and OKEO-TEX certified for non-allergy. FeelWell provides a 100% fit guarantee meaning once the garment is made but doesn’t fit properly, a new one will be created at no extra cost. Furthermore, all garments include a 1 year Warranty period.

Without the right fit, compression garments can become uncomfortable, reduce mobility, reduce quality of life and potentially lead to health problems including tissue necrosis or pressure damage (Miller 2017). The right fit is also important for you to feel comfortable and ensure you keep wearing the garment. At FeelWell, we strongly believe in this and that’s why we tailor make our garments to fit you.
