Sad to admit, and I am not sure if it is age or because I sit at my computer A LOT..my legs swell and cramp. By mid day, I am uncomfortable and usually have to get off my feet and rest. I have tried different types of hosiery but had not found anything that I wanted to leave on my legs any longer than necessary.
Thankfully, I recently received a pair of Thigh High Compression Support Stockings from AT Surgical to try out. Honestly, I was surprised at how comfortable they were once on. Getting them on was fun as most hosiery is…but within minutes my legs stopped cramping. After several hours of wear, my legs were noticeably less swollen. I found that I could stay active longer while wearing them.
Lessen muscle fatigue and achieve better performance results by helping to increase circulation to the lower extremities. Wear it all day or when you travel. Comfortable soothing compression directly aids better blood circulation and therefore the amount of oxygen that can travel to your muscles while you work out. Anti-Embolism Stockings are designed to help relieve runner’s leg fatigue, uncomfortable swelling, edema and mild to moderate varicose veins. Use on long flights to reduce uncomfortable leg and ankle swelling. The seamless design maximizes comfort and removes pressure points on the heel and back of the ankle. Made with an open inspection toe for post-operative patients that permits inspection of the toes without requiring removal of the stocking from the leg. Soft elastic nylon/spandex material provides support and relief from the arch of the foot to the leg.
Product comes in sizes:
- S Up to 12 inch
- M 12-15 inch
- L 15-17 inch
- XL Over 17 inch
I would recommend these to anyone that suffers with swollen legs or cramping. I would suggest also that you order one size larger than needed as the length for me was just above the knee and not thigh high. I will add that after wearing them for several hours, I was able to pull them higher but I think I would have found the next size more comfortable. Depending on your height and how much your legs swell, consider the size carefully.
