I happen to have a weird (?) case of lymphedema. My leg is completely ok below the knee, only 1 cm bigger than the other which I guess is normal for healthy people too. But swelling in thigh is quite severe. Of course it's better that it's not the whole leg, but it's hard to find compression that sits right. I'm interested If someone else has the same kind. I'm also wondering If I could only use shorts for this. It would be awesome to barefoot every once in a while.
