Designed to assist with single or dual (bilateral) inguinal hernia. Orione Hernia Brief Model #316 is made from Orione elasticated fabric (a cotton fabric with elastomers) that provides different tension throughout the design giving excellent support and comfort. Suitable for male gender only.The #316 is a slightly higher model than the #313, it really depends on your level of discomfort and the site of the hernia. If you have a relatively large hernia the #316 is your best choice. This model has a velcro top-to-bottom front flap opening.All Hernia briefs are supplied with two atomically shaped foam pads. There are two small pouches on the inside of the brief . They are recommended as they put direct pressure on the hernia but the fit is entirely up to the wearer.Sizing is important as we do not offer returns for underwear: Measure around the waist with a tape measure just below the belly button, approximately where the top of your normal underwear would be. Do not assume your normal trouser size is actually your waist size. If you consider yourself on a sizing borderline go down rather than up. If you consider that you will be a poor fit for this brief due to your body-shape please consider our #313 or #560 briefs.
The manufacturer recommendation is 'hand wash only at low temperature water', however we have heard many reports from customers who have used a a washing machine on a low temperature and spin setting without adversely affecting the garment..Do not use bleaches or detergents.

The Hernia support brief is worn instead of normal briefs and provides support and relief around the abdominal region. The airy elasticated fabric is designed to be worn all day and allows good freedom of movement. Suitable for left, right or double (bilateral) inguinal hernias close to the groin. The brief is supplied with two thin, firm shaped, foam pads which can (optionally) be inserted in the internal fabric pouches to assist in direct flattening support to the hernia region.A hernia truss is not needed or advised. The Hernia Brief has a low-profile design looks at first glance exactly like normal underwear with excellent Italian styling.
Suitable for an Inguinal Hernia that is classified as 'reducible' i.e. it can be pushed back into the body without undue pain. Also suitable for post-operative care where support is necessary across the site. Do not use on injured skin or together with ointments or creams. if in doubt consult your physician for approximate time and way of use.Not recommended if part of your hernia is emerging into the scrotum as internal foam pads need to cover whole hernia area for effective relief.Do not wear this product directly after surgery particularly if you have had a mesh-type hernia repair as pressure on the mesh may cause internal inflammation. Post-operation the hernia brief can be worn as a general gentle support without the foam pad(s) but only after clearance from your surgeon / GP regarding recovery rates.
