There is something magical about marrying someone you want to keep with you for life. You will never forget the time before, the day itself and the euphoria of the newlyweds. But especially the wedding preparations are often overshadowed by a particular concern for many women who have to wear compression fittings due to lipoedema, lymphoedema, thrombosis, etc.:

What do I do with my compression on the wedding day? Hide, show or even don't wear at all?

Every happy smile and moment of happiness will be so much more important than a single thought of your care.

I'm Caroline, born in 1989 and live in Augsburg. Why did I start the lipedema fashion blog? At the beginning of my diagnosis I was completely helpless before an uncertain future. Now, a few years later, through active participation in self-help groups and a lot of research, I have accumulated a wealth of experience that I would like to make available to other affected persons in one place - without the detour via private groups on Facebook. The fashion component is of course due to my hobby. At the time, I promised myself that I would never be restricted by compression stockings. This attitude gives other patients courage and so Michaela advised me to start a blog.
