I ordered these compression gloves in the medium size after measuring my hand as guided. When I got them I immediately thought I should have ordered the smaller size for a tighter feel. I was wrong! Their sizing guide is spot on.
They give you juuuuust enough support that you can literally wear them all day long as long as you don’t need to wash your hands. I can’t get enough of them. Wearing ’em right now as I’m typing this.
Honestly I didn’t even buy them for pain. My hands get a little cold sometimes while I’m working and they seemed like a better idea than regular fingerless gloves. But I do appreciate the support and comfort. They are exceptionally comfortable and I plan to handwash mine. They seem well stitched so I think they’ll last.
So here are two ways I use them as well. I like to use paraffin because my cuticles get dry in the winter. So I wear my gloves and just dip the fingertips.
I also like to watch movies with them on. I put on lotion first (massaging it in well, don’t want gook in your gloves), then pull on my gloves and place them on a warm hot water bottle on my lap. Ahhhhhhhhhhh! So soothing and cozy. At the end of movie time my hands are soft and pampered.
Very pleased with my purchase!
