What is it?
Silva-Deluxe sling has been designed and manufactured to give good hip and thigh support. Subtle shaping, darting and finishing on the angle of the leg sections creates a blousing effect which provides superior support to the lower torso, hip and thigh area. The leg sections can also be used in the hammock position.
