Our signature print

Our hexagon print is the backbone of our user comfort as it allows movement and breathability while you’re on the go.

Dressing pad

Our garment is designed for use with HidraWear adhesive-free dressing pads that are easy to apply and remove and are kind to your skin. HidraWear dressings are body conforming and highly absorbent – you won’t even know they are there.

Application oh-so-easy


Put on your garment

Put on your garment and close using the hook and eye fastener at the front of the garment.


Apply the dressing

Insert the dressing in place ensuring the smooth side of the dressing is facing the skin and the hexagon print is facing the garment.


Secure dressing in place

Use the external fastening element to secure your dressing in place.
Don’t forget to tuck the tabs.

What others say

“HidraWear is great and comfortable. It felt snug and secure. I loved how I had the option to take off the top strap if I was wearing a lower top. It is very discreet. When I wore it, no one made any comments towards seeing it or asked me questions – that was one thing i was worried about. I believe HidraWear will benefit alot of people. You feel better in yourself going out when you know your dressings are secure.”

Hayley, Ireland

“I would just like to say thank you. HidraWear is amazing. I wish I had this years ago. It’s comfortable to wear and easy to redress area of flare up. It has helped me to move more freely and comfortably while working and in daily life at home. It has been a godsend. I will recommend this to anyone who is unfortunately suffering with HS. The pads are completely comfortable and work well. Much better than adhesive pads as they cause no pain or irritation when removing, which I feel is helping heal quicker than normal.”

Vikki, United Kingdom

“Once I watched the Instructional YouTube video’s I found HidraWear really easy to use. It’s more comfortable than I had originally expected. I didn’t get any itchy armpits from dressing which is brilliant. The strap across the chest took a little while to get used too but after wearing it for the day I didn’t even notice it. And you always have the option of removing it too.”

Sue, Ireland

“HidraWear is very comfortable. I’m almost looking forward to my next flare up! Everything stayed in place.”

Dee, Ireland

“Well, what can I say about this product! First of all, wow, what an amazing idea! I really think HidraWear will be life changing for so many people who suffer with this awful illness. The quality is amazing. It is so soft and gentle on the skin, which is so important with this condition. It fits really well and is true to size. The technology for holding wound pads in place is ingenious. I’ve found that aspect of the illness particularly frustrating, how to keep dressings on an area which moves. HidraWear actually addresses that issue. I honestly cannot sing your praises highly enough.”
