Hot Compress Scar / scarf

Hot Compress Scar
Hot Compress Scar

This design is a scarf which can warm our bellies, especially for relieving menstrual cramps by providing a heading pad on one’s lower abdomen. With this scarf, user can press the pocket at the scarf end with a heading pad in it. During normal circumstances, the pad can warm up one’s belly, which is the weakest portion to protect in cold weather. When suffering from menstrual cramps, females can use it to make a hot compress on their lower abdomen without bringing an ugly hot-water bottle with them. Additionally, the scarf utilizes heat sensitive paint that flower patterns will appear when it is heated to make a fashion statement.
