I am getting desperate to find a good seamless shirt with a lower neckline and no logo on top. I've bought everything I can find in hopes it would do the trick. The best I have found is Underarmour but sadly because of the high neckline and or the logo placement I can't hide it under normal street clothes. I also wish the short sleeve versions had just a little longer sleeve so I don't have that gap of upper arm bulge between my compression sleeve and the bottom of the shirt sleeve. On bad days I must wear them inside out because of the seaming irritation so seamless would be a dream.
My issue is my upper back near the arm pit so camis and tank are out for me because they cut into that area and make it worse. I have to find a compression top with some sleeve to it. I even took one of my UA shirts to my tailor to see if he could do anything to lower the neckline and he said it can't be done.

Ladies we have tried to get UA attention before but to my knowledge nothing has come from it.
See my topic "New Type of LE garment" then go to page 7. This was back in January 2012.
We got all excited that they seemed to be interested but like I said I don't think anything came from it.
Although we are a fierce group - we are a small number when you look at the mass population. I just
don't think they will be swayed. We may need to start talking to smaller manufacturers, but then we get into a very expensive garment that many of us can't afford or can't afford the number of them that we need in a year.

I had forgotten that I bought a Ahh Seamless T-shirt by Rhonda Shear (HSN.com) this summer. It's stuck in my closet someplace and I need to dig it back out. The design is kind of what many of us are looking for. I think the compression was decent but gentle and the sleeves are a good longer short sleeve style. But I had issues with it being too thick material (HOT) and the seam work at the shoulders was not done well as it puckers. As I was driving into work it hit me that she might be a good one to reach out too. I jumped on the HSN website today during lunch and sure enough she has a blog there and looks like she actually reads posts and replies from time to time. Soooo I posted a little thing about BC and lymphedema and our needs for a good tshirt design. I'll keep you posted and let you know how you can help.
