I just don't want to be "the girl with the messed up hand" for the next two months.

I have De Quervain’s tenosynovitis
. I have to wear a brace on my wrist for the next long while.
All the braces I've found are hideous
and scream "SMPA is injured and has no style," which is taking me right back to that time when I was a kid in school and I'm hating
it (and don't get me started on the bowling jokes at work.)
Are there functional yet cute or pretty braces out there? What is the solution to this, besides "suck it up, you should have paid more attention to ergonomics?"

My sense of what counts as stylish is pretty darned loose: even just being able to pick different colors, like you can with casts, would help a lot. I'm thinking part of my problem is that I don't know what Google keywords to use - but that could be the pain interfering with my intellectual capacity. Help me, please!
(I don't need full immobilization - I can handle the ugly full-blown medical looking stuff in bed at night.)
