Hi, so I'm looking at these compression garments to help hide contour problems.

I'm just curious, a lot of these garments seem to say they're for people who've had surgery. I know they use compression garments post surgery for better healing, control swelling ,etc.

Am I looking at the wrong garments? Or are post-surgery compression garments the same as what people who don't have surgery are using to hide the problem?

Is there any difference between a post-surgical compression garment and one for everyday use?

Some post surgical garments have zippers or hooks and eyes.  Most non-surgical garments are just pull overs.  You can use either one if you choose.

Non-surgical compression vests are great and not noticeable.  The one I got really changed my life.  Maybe not as much as surgery, since I still can't go to the beach or swim, but it means that I can go outside and not have people stare and have kids say "that man has boobies" or have dumb fratboys point and say out loud "dude, check out that guy's breasts".  Since the compression vest, those kinds of embarrassments have been put to an end.
