Compression garments (stockings, sleeves, gloves, etc.) are made with one of three fabrication techniques: (1) cut and sew; (2) circular knitting; (3) flat knitting. The strongest support can be offered by flat knitting techniques, which are almost always custom-made. These flat knits have few flat seams while circular knits are seamless and cut and sew garments have multiple seams.

The story of LympheDIVAs began in Philadelphia when two young breast cancer survivors, Rachel Troxell and Robin Miller, developed lymphedema, a side effect of breast cancer treatment that can cause permanent swelling in the arms. Their physicians and lymphedema therapists recommended a compression sleeve as the most effective way of controlling the swelling. When they researched the options for the sleeve they found that the only ones available were rough textured, heavy, hot, beige, and bandage-like. Frustrated and dismayed over the lack of options they had for compression sleeves, Robin and Rachel met with Kristin Dudley, a fashion designer, to discuss their idea of creating a more elegant and comfortable compression sleeve.
LympheDIVAs gauntlets and arm sleeves are not only aesthetically unique but are medically advanced and very comfortable as well. They utilize a unique cooling technology. Because heat causes increased capillary flow which results in increased lymph fluid flow, LympheDIVAs believes that keeping your hand and arm as cool as possible is medically beneficial. The incorporated Coolmax technology, with wicking, decreases the skin temperature through superior breathability and by moving moisture away from the skin through the fabric. This allows it to evaporate and produce further cooling. LympheDIVAs gauntlets and arm sleeves are also impregnated with micro-encapsulated Aloe Vera which releases the soothing compound over six months of use giving greater softness and skin protection.
