  • I got one from my doctor. I always end up having to wear them because I get so big and the pressure becomes too much. Maybe ask your doctor who is telling you to get one, where you can find one. Are there any medical supply stores around you? Sometimes they carry them.

  • I hate when doctors insist on you getting something, but then have no idea where to tell you to get them. Drives me nuts!
