I recently purchased a bra from Makemeheal.com. It measured several sizes too small. I am a corset and lingerie designer by trade, so I am very familiar with how to measure garments and bodies. The size chart says the bra will fit someone with an underbust measuring 28"- 32". The underbust measured 23", a full 5" smaller than advertised! Anyone who has ever has breast surgery knows that it is very dangerous to wear a bra that is even 1/2" too tight around the band (it can lead to ulceration of the skin), much less 5". It took weeks for Makemeheal to respond to my request to return the item, and over a month to eventually refund the purchase amount, less $6.99 shipping. I had to pay $5.05 to return the bra. I have asked them numerous times to refund my shipping both ways because the product was misrepresented. I even sent them photos of the bra being measured to prove it was 5 sizes smaller than advertised. I am out $12, and had to go buy a bra after surgery while I was supposed to be home in recovery. Makemeheal.com has the worst customer service I have ever encountered. I have wasted hours trying to get them to do the right thing and refund my shipping. They have made no attempts to change the product info or size charts on their site either, which means anyone else who buys that bra will also be cheated. I'm disgusted.

I bought both garments as a set but returned the stage one garment because the closure panel on the sides dug into my waist and was terribly uncomfortable. I went instead with the standard girdle from Morris Designs http://www.morrisdesigns.com/white-standard-girdle.htm. The closures for the Morris garment are on the center front and the inner thighs, which are a much wiser placement because these areas are smoother, whereas the waist is much to curvy for the zipper/hook panel. What i don't like about the morris girdle is the fabric, which is a stiff, power net fabric. The make-me-heal stage one garment is very soft and a much nicer fabric. I haven't had my surgery yet so I haven't had the opportunity to test any of the garments further than just trying them on, but I like the fabric and fit of the stage 2 garment. The morris garment is a fabric that does not conform well to the shape of my body and is too big on the thighs, whereas the make-me-heal garments hug and fit like a glove. They are hard to put on but that's the case with any girdle. I would not recommend this product because I didn't like the stage 1 garment but I have high hopes for the stage 2 garment. I would recommend you buy that separately. if your body is not very curvy at the waist on the sides of your body, the stage 1 garment may work well for you. I found that the closure panel buckled and dug in at the waist. It is better to put the closures on a relatively smooth area with no sudden dips such as a waist. I am giving this product a "good" because I think the fabric is very nice, and the stage 2 garment seems to have potential, but I would never wear the stage 1 garment. It hurt (especially at the waist) within 1 minute of trying on. Ideally, I would love the stage 1 garment made as is, but with closure placement on the center front and inner thighs like the Morris standard girdle. I couldn't find one like that. I said i have been using this garment for 1 day because I only tried them on. I hope that the fabric breathes well as my surgery is in April in California. I also think the placement of the loops for the straps is not correct. the loops should be closer to the armpits. When i tried these garments on, the straps intersected my breasts. I am a size small with 34C breasts. I will have to move the loops over myself to avoid having the straps cut into my breasts. What I like about the stage 2 garment is the simple seaming. There is just one seam down center front. Normally that would be dreadful if it had a crotch but since it is crotch-less there is no seam to ride up the crotch. I am a fashion designer specializing in custom corsets so I have a really good understanding of garment construction, fabric, etc.
