I mentioned in another thread that I'm dealing with a flare-up of shoulder tendonitis ATM, and was looking for some kind of brace or something. Last night I was folding laundry and thought, "What I really need is a girdle for my shoulder!"  You know, like a heavy-duty spandex/powernet shirt. And then I remembered about compression shorts, which I've heard of (like the Tommie Copper infomercials) but know nothing about.

So I looked up compression shirts on Amazon, and they have a bunch of them, but none of the product descriptions or reviews say anything about support/pain relief, just moisture wicking (and then the Tommie Copper site is full of hyperbole-laden claims that are a little hard to believe, when Amazon has so little to say on the matter!). They're pretty pricey, so I'd like some real-world reviews before taking the plunge.

Any thoughts?

I'm a believer in compression wear however you have to have the mobility to put the garment on.  I have torn my rotator cuff twice and have limited dexterity within that shoulder now because of other damage done.  I know I would never be able to get it on.  I have tried a shirt like that and a pullover bra and both are a no go for me.  You will have to make that decision for yourself based on your mobility issues.

Underarmour compression shirts work for me.

Orb, perhaps your wife could help you to put the garment on.

A bra is just an article of clothing for people with breasts.
