Do you know where to find compression clothing size 4t? SPIO is really expensive and it would be awesome to try something else while it's cold outside- then invest in the SPIO again this Spring/Summer.



And, if you have no idea what I'm talking about but know where I can find bicycle clothes or ballet attire for hopefully less than $50 a piece, please fill me in! I am frustrated from looking online and not finding what I need. Also- boy colors are a must or girl but in a neutral styling.



Thank you much!

I just found one!



I was hoping therapyshoppe was going to have it but I did a google search for deep compression clothing for kids.

Although with the price, you're probably going to want under armor.



I may look into this for Jacob.

We have a vest, but he doesn't like it. He really needs the long sleeve long pants. He was doing so much better with them. He outgrew them and seemed to be doing fine, but these past few days have been so time consuming doing brush therapy. I've looked locally at Big 5 but their stuff was too big. And Kohls, JCP and Macy's had nothing. :x

At the SPIO site those shirts are only $130. The link you just posted was for $170. I want to wait until this summer when we need more breathable fabric to spend that kind of money. KWIM

This is better:lol: Even if I was able to get shirts for cheap and do expensive pants if no one can help me. Why does SPIO have to be so insanely priced?

I hate the brushing! Its always a toss up with us. Some days its fun and goes great. And others he screams through it and just wants me to "lay" on his back. He loves the crap out of compression!



I hope you find what you are looking for!

Yeah no, I understand, that's a lot of money.



That's why I suggest under armour. It's not really compression but maybe it will work?



It's supposed to be cold weather but maybe it would work?



Jacob loves his "body bag" we call it. It's a spandex lycra bag he can crawl around in.



Here's some boys leggings. Maybe they'll work, they're cheaper.

That's what I was trying to say! It's like WTF?



Jakes "body bag" cost like 75, I had his grandma pay for it.



Just linked the pants!

He's been begging me for the brushing. And tonight was an overall melt down because he wanted me to hug him and squeeze his face. And he decided he doesn't want to wear anything but thick cotton shirts or thermal and nothing but too small sweats. He is in a 4T but has been wearing 3T and even his baby brother 2T pants.

Thank you! I will need to google his sizing. But yay! I can order a couple whole outfits for the same price as one spio item.

On occasion we at SPIO are asked about our pricing. Here are a few things we would like to share:

1. One of the primary reasons SPIO works better than other compression systems is the unique characteristics of the highly specialized fabric. It can be worn every day for a year or more without losing any of its compressive qualities. This includes laundering every other day. Indeed, laundering reorients the fabric fibers to their original form preserving the compressive effect. Because of its unique properties this fabric is expensive compared to that used in other systems, but because it can be worn every day without losing effectiveness, its value is considerable. Other systems, and especially Under Armor garments, are not comparable. They don
