I've been reading about your troubles with the SofSets, sounds like what
I went through when I started using them. Very problematical for us thin
I agree with others who recommend you get some Comfort/Tenders/Silhouette
sets. I fond they work SO much better, especially since the angle can be
modified to suit. I tend to put mine at a lower angle to keep from
getting into the muscle and they also STAY on better than the SofSets
with NO external taping. Just a whole lot better design, IMHO.
