My name is Mariko DiBiase and I am the Product Specialist for Design Veronique. I started working for Design Veronique in 1998, right before the Aesthetic surgery boom. After 10 years of experience helping customers select the right products for postsurgical recovery, and using the products for my own recovery, I have a wealth of information to share. So, each week I’ll select a question I receive from one of my customers and post both the question (anonymously) and my response in this blog. I truly love helping patients find the right product to assist in their recovery. I hope you enjoy my blog and find the information helpful and fun! HAPPY HEALING
Hey guys! I’m 21 and thankfully I don’t have gynecomastia (thought I did at one point but was ruled out) fortunately/unfortunately when I’d gained weight I’d gained a lot in my chest however its hereditary – when my dad started getting a gut the manboobs also started, as with me. I still lift weights however lacked cardio/strict nutrition and hated my body was just too lazy to do anything about it. Would always wear button up shirts with a tight singlet to try hold my gut/manboobs in the thought of trying a compression vest and went with the Design Veronique Vest.
Thank you again for all your wonderful help and personal attention this past Monday on helping me fit a post surgical support garment. I LOVE wearing my compression garment. The thing I noticed immediately was the support it gave me when I laughed, coughed or sneezed. While these things hurt before wearing the garment, they were only mildly uncomfortable with the garment on. I also love the hook/eye connector in the crotch. This makes using the bathroom so much easier and less painful as I did not have to pull the garment up and down over my scars. You’re right about not being able to rip the garment. It wears like iron but is so comfortable.
I WISH I’d had a support garment from Design Veronique after having my children. I suspect my recovery would have been much quicker and my doctor is so pleased with how I am recovering from this surgery. I think these compression garments actually help the healing process!
I deeply appreciate all you have done to expedite shipping as I was so miserable in that ill-fitting garment. I am still a little out of it because of the liposuction and pain meds, but the new garment you recommended for me has made a world of difference.
Thank you again for your help.
You’re the best!
Everything came out great! Thank you so much for all your help with sizing, alterations, and with getting my original order returned. Well it is 9 more days till my operation. Yikes!
You have done such a wonderful customer service job! I will spread the work about Design Veronique garments.
With gratitude and appreciation,
Over the past 2 weeks I have had extreme swelling to the point where I did not want to leave my house and it was hard to even walk. I ordered one of your compression garments on Wednesday and received it Thursday morning. I brought it to the plastic surgeon’s office with me for my visit and he gave me the green light to wear it.
Yesterday was the first day I wore the garment (prior I was wearing an abdominal wrap CG) and when I woke up this morning I was shocked at how much the swelling had gone down!! I actually wore a pair of jeans to work, the first time since surgery and feel and look great!
I was reluctant to purchase at first because of the expense, but I have to say that it is worth every penny. You make a great product that has helped me tremendously. And if I might add when I called your customer service department they were extremely helpful and kind.
Thank you for such an awesome product!!!!!

Thank you so much for listening to me ramble on for what seemed like hours about my garment disaster.
I can’t believe that I spent two days after surgery hobbling around from department stores to discount stores looking for a compression garment.
If I had only called Design Veronique before I had my lipo…I would have avoided the whole garment fiasco to begin with.
I’m very pleased with my surgeon and results thus far, but it would have saved me a ton of grief if she would have referred me to your website to begin with. At my first follow up appointment I let her know how easy it was to use deal with your company and highly recommend she share your information with all future patients.
Thank you, again and again.
I wanted to thank you again for your kind help on my garment issue last week…your help was a God send! They both arrived last Friday and the small black one fit just great – it offers such a comfortable fit.
There really should be more people like you out there. I’m so grateful for your empathy and graciousness.
