Truncal Lymphedema

I am wondering what the difference is in a custom made or off the counter compression vest for truncal lymphedeam.

Off the shelf may or may not fit you properly and possibly not be the proper degree of compression for your particular case. It's much better to be measured and fitted by someone trained to do this than to just pick something off the shelf and hope that it will fit properly.
