We do have a few tricks to help you with your fit, if yours is too tight! Some people need more stretch.
- There is an elastic in the top and bottom hem to aid in smaller fits, but it is not a critical component of the HurtSkurt®. You may make a small incision on the inside of the hem and snip that elastic. We suggest you do this one hem at a time, since snipping one may do the trick for you. You will gain several more inches of stretch with this simple trick, without compromising the function or look of your HurtSkurt® in any way. The entire product is designed to stretch to fit.
- You can microwave your HurtSkurt® for a few seconds to warm it up when you first get it and give it a good stretch. As with any new product, it may be a little stiff when you first open it. Heating it and stretching it will help it stretch out. Like a nice pair of jeans, your HurtSkurt® will get more and more comfortable with time and use.
- You don't have to freeze your HurtSkurt®. When frozen, the 100% gel inside your HurtSkurt® will freeze solid, which allows us to be the leading product for temperature retention, and also keeps us from having to use anti-freeze chemicals to keep our gel soft. But, many prefer the softer feel of the gel, and you can achieve this by storing your HurtSkurt® in the fridge instead of the freezer. You will still get a solid 20 minutes of therapeutic temperature, but retain the softer feel and a little more flexibility.
We designed HurtSkurt® to be very flexible to fit a wide range of people while offering comfort and compression.
