People wear compression stockings for comfort, to do better in sports, to help prevent serious medical conditions, during pregnancy and if you work on your feet all day such as doctors, nurses, hairdressers, police, chefs and anyone os the service industry.
The pressure these socks put on your legs helps your blood vessels work better in turn improving your blood flow. The arteries that take oxygen-rich blood to your muscles can relax, so blood flows freely.
They can also lessen pain and swelling in your legs. They can also lower your chances of getting deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and other circulation problems when you are more sedentary sich as post-op and on long flights.
If you are a sports person then compression socks can keep your legs from getting tired and achy. They can also ease swelling in your feet and ankles as well as help prevent and treat spider and varicose veins.
For longer-lasting socks, we recommend washing your socks at 30°C, ideally inside out and do not put them in the tumble dryer or expose them to bleach as this will weaken the fibres.
