Bolero or arm sock - the differences
The big difference between the two types of restoration lies in the connection between the shoulder blades. Der Vorteil What is important about the bolero is that it is not two individual arm socks that can slip down, but the arm warmers always stay in place. You can also use it to pack the little clouds on your upper arms well. Otherwise it can happen that they bulge over the sleeve end. A disadvantage is in my opinion that in summer you can of course see the additional cord under a top or a cut-out dress.
The connecting piece on the bolero from medi is comparatively narrow. If you also wear a leg harness, sometimes every cm of fabric is already too much - that's what happens to me sometimes. Have the arm socks the advantage, that the connecting piece is omitted and thus the neck remains free. They are also taken off faster than the bolero. It cannot be easily removed without dropping the covers.
It has to be right
Caution: The bolero should be measured absolutely perfectly by your Sanifee, otherwise you run the risk of rubbing your armpit. The sensitive point is not forgiving of any measurement errors.
In the case of an arm sock, however, it is important to ensure that it ends as high as possible in order to guarantee a comfortable fit on the upper arm. If you need additional hold, I recommend a wide adhesive border with micro nubs. Are you prone to allergic reactions to the silicone? Then, however, the bolero could be the right solution for you. This works completely without adhesive tapes.
Hurray - patterns, crystals and functional zones are there for everyone!
The nice thing about both flat knit supplies is that you don't have to do without the functional zone on the elbow, the pattern option or the sparkling crystals. This way you can do your work at your desk much more comfortably and don't have to choose a fashionable accent from the range of colors and patterns from average without.
