Product test: Compression tights with buttocks from Medi

- Unpaid advertising -

Our compression tights are the most essential aid in conservative therapy and a hate-loving companion in our everyday life. It brings us pain relief on the one hand, and tightness and impairment on the other. Without gloves and physical effort, you can no longer imagine the morning routine. After years of use, you almost miss them if you don't wear them for once.

With such a daily care, it is important to continuously improve it and let it become a second skin. Has taken a step in the right direction average made with the buttocks body part (for mediven 550).

What's new, how strong is the effect and what are the effects?

The new knit variant supports the bottom, does not press it flat and maintains the natural silhouette. At last, rounded buttocks come into their own again, and you can even see a noticeable effect through jeans and skirts.

And yes, it really is. I chose the two new trend colors moss green with a striped pattern and a simple variant in the color cashmere. Regarding the buttocks-forming body part, I have had the same experience with both compression tights. The shape fits and adapts really well to the bottom. You can even see it through the jeans, which I felt was a huge step forward. Of course, the flat shape was only noticed when you looked very closely. Nevertheless, the look is now much more natural and creates a pinch of more self-confidence. It's just a sexy curve.

Where it belongs

Another effect that I associate with the new shape is the perfect fit of the butt-forming body part. In the last few years I have hardly had to pull up my body part as rarely as with my current models, and that's really a great feeling. Maybe I imagine it too, but it just hugs the body shape better and helps to keep everything where it belongs.

Tip: If the body part does not sit properly, the body part and under the buttocks at the base of the legs create small creases. So grab a little bit of fabric from the inside and everything is in its place.

Butt-forming body part - my conclusion

The new butt-forming body part is a great innovation in the world of compression stockings. A really good idea for even better quality of life. The less we notice the compression on our own body, the more lightness we regain. The new knitting technology and the butt-forming body part did a good job and brought both the wearing comfort and the look a step forward. Keep it up, average!

  • Hallo,

    I found the article very interesting! Especially since I myself have the feeling that with my stockings, from Medi (Mediven 550) in black with a diamond pattern, the elasticity is much less. I get these stockings much harder than the normal ones without a pattern. Amazing! I think the patterned ones are great, but then have to think again 😉

    LG Anja

  • Hello, once had moss green
    now my biggest question is _ because of the overhang belly -
    the pants slide deeper and deeper and pinch the hem BELOW the bar. This squeezes some nerve and I can't get my knees up to climb stairs or climb my bike.

    Does anyone have anything like that? Solution???

  • A friend told me that the compression stockings cost around 1000 € without a prescription ???? Is that correct?

  • Oh yes, the annoying hollow of the knee. And when you're on the go all day (city trip), the constant tugging of your pants ... up or down ... When you sweat, it itches so miserably. Do you have a tip for that? Otherwise, I think it's great that these trend colors and patterns are offered. So you can at least get a little variety in the dreary compression 🙂

  • Hello Silly,
    I also wear the CCL.2 compression pants for lipedema level 1-2.
    I get along quite well with the variant that I don't have tights but a pair of knee socks with an open toe cap and capri pants that end roughly in the upper third of the lower leg. My compression pants won't slide up :)
    I know the sore back of the knees. I was able to solve it with my medical supply store in such a way that the manufacturing company sewn a soft fleece into me. That fixed my wish;) Greetings Lisa

  • Hello.
    I am a male, 58 and have been wearing KKL2 compression tights for 2 months. I was diagnosed with a vein problem.
    I have no problems with the stockings. At first it was just a problem getting dressed and undressed.
    In the medical center I was told that this would go away after 2 weeks. You were right. Although the first 5 minutes, where you can still decide whether or not to wear it, are the worst.
    Butt shaping doesn't have to be as you should be wearing something extra anyway when wearing the compression. I was able to notice that in the 2 months, even if the stockings fit like a second skin.
    Because, once put on, you have no possibility of a big correction without rubber gloves.
    Not everyone has a diaper bottom either. Eye-catcher is included. 😉

      • Hello Caroline

        Is butt shaping advisable for a man?

        And if it costs extra, I would also be interested in the Cozy version with the side stripes

        Thank you

        • Hello Michael,

          Your Sanifee can give you even better advice on this, as she can also see your body. The bottom shaping body part is always an additional service that is not covered by the health insurance fund. How much you have to pay depends on your medical supply store.

          Best regards,

  • Hallo,
    I'm trying to switch from Juzo to Medi with my new prescription. Does anyone have any experience, are there big differences?
    Have you tried the new side seam yet?
    Butt shaping is certainly an extra service, pattern too?
    I'm wondering if someone can tell me what's additional if I want real top care ;)
    Thank you

    • Hello Jalu,

      Unfortunately there is not enough time to provide a comprehensive answer. Have you ever spoken to your medical supply store about this? They can also tell you what they would charge for the additions. In any case, as far as I can see, the side seam only meets with applause. You can definitely try it out with peace of mind. I still love the butt shaping body part to this day and have no compression without it.

      Best regards,
