Where do you guys order your bandages? I met with the therapist yesterday and she gave me an order form for, but the numbers and sizes don't match what they have on their website. I left a message on their machine.

Is there a better place? Log in to post a reply

Hi Robin,
I have never looked at their order form since I only order off the website--how strange!!
Anyway, another site is North American Rehabilitation at the prices are pretty close & I don't want to only have one supplier so I order from both.
Good luck!

Hi, Robin,
There's also Lymphawrap at that's run by a bc veteran with LE who donates part of her profits to bc causes. Her prices are a bit higher, but being a Sultaness of Swell herself she does have some helpful products you can't find elsewhere (like housework-type gloves that'll fit over bandages, I think).

In a pinch you might have to use BandagesPlus at . Over a year ago my therapist warned me that their goal is to put the others out of business by guaranteeing lower prices, and I don't know if that is still true or not, so I don't want to penalize them...BUT! we sure don't need only one supplier of bandages or we're all going to be hit real hard in the wallet.

Hoping your first therapy visit went well,

I have actually only ordered from bandages plus. Can't remeber how I found then just know they looked the most business like when I came across their website.

Hi ladies, thought that I'd put a link in for the English ladies that come in here. Don't know how prices compare but I do know that they have lots of choice. The link is . Think you will need to know the name of the product as I found the site a bit confusing to navigate otherwise.

All my garments are covered by insurance. Just make sure that the CME company you use is familiar with the codes that are acceptable for your insurance. Sometimes garments are coded as prosthetics and sometimes durable medical equipment. Your provider will need to sign a prescription for the items. Usually the DME company will provide an example for the prescriber to use when writing the prescription. The verbage is important. I can't call my compression bras "bras" but "thoracic vests". Sigh...
