Hi in my experience after 3 years of having lymphoedema in arm and hand I have found the made to measure all in one glove and sleeve works best. Over the years I have tried all different gloves and makes of sleeve but they all seemed to make the swelling worse on the hand. I don’t think it matters if you have half or full finger glove but I suppose it depends on how bad your finger swelling is. If it is troublesome full finger would be best but having tried made to measure all in one for last 6 months I have found this to be better and the fingers are approx three quarter length just to confuse matters x
