Sleeve Stars selling Arm Candy coloured covers for lymphoedema compression sleeves. These light covers are available in useful colours to match what you are wearing and have a flattering bell-shaped scalloped end at the wrist end which can be pulled down to partly cover the hand. Designed by Carolyn in the USA who developed lymphoedema following breast cancer, they help women who don't like the beige coloured compression sleeves, to feel much more positive and happy about wearing them.
