There are several known benefits to compression socks during pregnancy as most pregnant women tend to suffer from swollen legs and in some more severe cases varicose and spider veins…I had to spend most of the time I was pregnant in bed because I had a condition known as hyperemesis and had virtually no exercise during that time. One thing I did get was the swelling of the feet and legs, so I know first-hand how uncomfortable this can be.
Why compression socks?
Compression socks are known to encourage the venous blood flow from the feet back toward the heart reducing the effects of gravity and therefor the discomfort associated with it when it comes to the blood flow in your legs.
These socks can also prevent the blood pooling in the legs and reduce the symptoms and the risk of getting a blood clot.
Not your grandma’s ugly rubber socks
One of, if not the most discouraging aspects of wearing compression socks are the aesthetics. I for one immediately thought of Misses Doubtfire whenever I thought of these socks.
Luckily there are compression socks companies like Tootsies, that have taken upon themselves to make compression socks for women that are not only beneficial, but also visually attractive.
Compression socks for women
While pregnant women can certainly take advantage of a nice pair of compression socks, the reality is that anyone with circulatory problems could use the help. Even women that are lucky enough to have healthy legs can use these socks as a way to prevent and slowdown these diseases.
I have been noticing a decrease in the circulation of my legs and quite often get a very unsettling discomfort and sensation in them.
I decided to look into compression socks and was amazed to discover that there are some designs that look nothing like the grandma’s rubber stockings that I have been used to.
There are super cute sports style socks, and the reality is that people are getting smart about their leg’s health and more and more people are joining the healthy leg revolution and looking to support their leg health.
I have been running lately and love using my socks while running. The secret is to get the proper pair of compression socks.
While marketed for pregnant women, these socks can be beneficial for any woman looking to improve their leg circulation.
With true graduated compression (15-20mmHG), these socks are great for all day use and can be used pre/ post pregnancy, travel, and exercise to increase blood flow, with maximum comfort and helps to reduce the swelling ad inflammation of the legs while preventing varicose veins without sacrificing your style!
