The ‘old style’ gauntlets refer to the previous design of LympheDivas gauntlet. They are no longer making these so these are the last ones available. Some customers have preferred to stay with the older style a bit longer as they find them a bit more of a snug at the wrist. The sizing is the same but the design at the wrist area is a bit different. This picture is an example of what the old style looks like compared with the other pictures on this site.
