So what are the benefits of wearing compression hosiery?
The pressure created aids swelling and fatigue, reduces the chances of blood clots and helps to prevent varicose veins. Furthermore, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a potential debilitating and life-threatening disease, with an annual incidence of one to two per 1,000 people. Whilst compression tights are not a cure for varicose veins or DVT, doctors often recommend compression tights or stockings to improve circulation, stop varicose veins from getting worse, and reduce pain or discomfort.
Check out the review by Courtney Hooper regarding the Cecilia de Rafael energize 70 compression tights. She explains what varicose veins are and how these tights compress around problem areas such as the ankle, knee and thigh. Courtney also noticed that when she wore them all day at work, she didn’t have any of the discomfort she would normally have in her legs and hips.
Pregnancy / Exercise / DVT / Travelling
Particularly during pregnancy, women can suffer from tired, swollen and achy feet/legs. Our Gipsy Mama Support Tights are great for relieving pain and increasing circulation by supporting the blood and veins in the legs against the force of gravity, getting the blood back up to the heart and the rest of the upper body. Compression wear has also been shown to reduce lactic acid build-up after exercise and in some cases improve performance of competitive athletes. They are also great for travelling on long haul flights by significantly reducing the risk of DVT as well as leg swelling (oedema).
Everyday wear for work
Compression hosiery is also perfect for everyday wear for work. Becki Louise is a hairdresser and is on her feet all day, she therefore has poor blood circulation and thought that the Charnos medium energising support tights were great for adding more pressure at the bottom of the leg so that she felt comfortable all day at work. See her review here:
Modern compression tights are sophisticated in design so that they are suitable for various activities whilst still being highly fashionable. The tights provide consistent pressure to the legs, helping blood to flow back towards the heart, whilst offering a comfortable wear that looks and feels attractive. The strength of compression is measured in mmHg (millimetres of mercury), which is a scientific term to measure the amount of pressure exerted over a specific area. Many styles feature gradient compression so that the pressure gradually decreases or increases at different points of the leg. Compression tights usually exert more pressure near the ankles and feet where blood flow can be slow and swelling is common. For example, the Levante control and support tights are excellent quality, offering medium leg support with a control boxer brief that is slimming. They also have a slight sheen, reinforced toe, 30 denier finish, flat seams and a factor 8 graduated compression for leg stress. These tights are ideal for anyone on their feet all day to keep their legs energised yet still look fabulous.
From tights, hold ups, knee highs, maternity tights, travel socks to flight socks, there are lots of luxury and affordable compression hosiery styles for you to choose from, for any purpose.
