Compri? Who cares!

Here we are now. After the wonderful positive feedback and a lot of thought, I have now decided to start this blog about lipedema, fashion and compression.

Here everything should revolve around styling tips, sample outfits and, above all, compression stockings. Because many women suffer from the second flat knit skin and are easily unsettled by their not exactly exciting look. I hope I can show you that the Kompri must not represent a limit for you. It is a tool that reduces our pain and makes us struggle a little better through everyday life. But I will probably write a more detailed article about that.

You will probably come across my friend Michaela on this site quite often. She is, so to speak, my fashion muse and has been a very formative part of my way to my current style. To make this blog possible, she would also like to help me with the photos and maybe write guest posts that deal directly with the fashion world. I will then be able to work out the necessary lipedema aspect together with her.

Since I've already had 3 liposuctions and lost 11,2 liters of lipoedema fat, my figure has of course changed significantly for the better. So don't let the fact that I have slim legs fool you when reading my outfit posts. I wore the clothes before the operations. In order to be able to give you a few tips on how to deal with voluminous upper arms or legs, I'll see if I can get a few friends on board.

So I'm very excited to see where this journey is going and look forward to your feedback! Because that is of the utmost importance and in the end makes this blog what it should be. so comment, make suggestions and share your thoughts with me.

I'm really looking forward to you guys!

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.

  • Hello Caro,
    I'm really looking forward to your blog and lots of ideas to integrate the Kompri into my outfits. I am 38 and have only known for a few months that I am affected myself, although I have been from doctor to doctor because of the same symptoms since my first pregnancy over 15 years ago - there it was always "lose weight!", But you know that Yes…
    That is why it is all the more important that those affected dare to go public more and more to report on how to deal with this disease and to exchange ideas with others. This includes not only the exchange of information about doctors, health insurance companies, therapies, etc., but also about the choice of clothing.
    LG, Michaela
