Custom Made Garments


As with the Arm and Hand, garments for the lower extremities can be as simple or complex as needed. Many of the options outlined may be combined and customised to create a truly unique garment.

Targeted compression applied to lower extremities from the toe to the thigh

Leg garments may continue as high up the leg as necessary and appropriate finishes will be applied to both the proximal and distal ends to assist with ease of donning and any grip related issues. We can chose the appropriate weight of powernet for your patients or you may choose to discuss this with us.

Toe Cap Options

Zip options tailored to mobility needs

From loops to dressing tabs to soft gussets under the zip, there are many ways to customise a zip to the mobility of the patient for ease of donning and doffing. It is often recommended to add a zip to a lower limb garment, especially if reinforcements or Silon-Tex® linings are added.

Standard Sole vs Seamless Sole

Standard foot garments include a single posterior seam that runs into the sole of the foot, however this may be modified upon request. A popular option is a seamless sole of the foot that can be further reinforced in Powernet or grip may be added with Neoprene Heat Set Grip.

Toe Gloves

For further targeted pressure to be applied to the toes, you may choose to order a separate Mid-Foot toe glove or attach a toe glove to a longer leg garment. Toes may be open or closed tip and adding slants will further increase the pressure on the anterior aspect of the foot. A zip is often required to aid in donning and doffing if the garment extends past the ankle.

The Japanese Toe Glove is available in Open or Closed Toes and provides a more secure anchor and compression around the toes than a self enclosed foot.

Proper laundering will preserve the condition of your patients garments for as long as possible. A new garment will maintain optimal levels of pressure for 3-6 months with considered laundering and care. After this time frame it is recommended to replace the garment if necessary.

We advise you to wash garments daily with the following instructions to receive the maximum benefit from your compression garment:

Hand Wash
1. Ensure all zips and velcro are done up
2. Gentle hand wash in warm water using mild detergent
3. Rinse in cold water and gently wring out
4. Place in a towel and roll the garment in it to remove excess water
5. Place garment flat in shade to dry

Machine Wash – front loader only
1. Ensure all zips and velcro are done up
2. Place garment in a delicates bag or pillow slip
3. Wash on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent
4. Place garment flat in shade to dry

We have standard fabrics for all custom made garments based on garment type and diagnosis, however we also carry an extensive range of specialty fabrics that you may choose from if your patients have any specific needs. Choosing the correct fabric is integral to achieving the best outcomes with a compression garment so we offer a broad range of advanced compression and specialty fabrics to address a variety of concerns.

See our fabrics page for a detailed breakdown of our fabrics and colours.

A new garment will maintain optimal levels of pressure for 3-6 months with considered laundering and care. After this time frame it is recommended to replace the garment if necessary. On top of the laundering guidelines set out above, we also advise you to educate your patients on proper donning and doffing techniques and to regularly review garments for effectiveness, wear and tear.

Our care instructions come at the advice of leading compression garment researchers as well as from the guidelines set out by our fabric manufacturers. You can be comfortable in knowing we have taken every step to ensure our garments can maintain optimal levels of pressure for as long as possible.

All patients needing a compression or therapy garment manufactured by TSL need a written referral from a medical professional.
