If you haven't worn compression socks and aren't sure if you should let me share some of the benefits. If you’re a compression wearing pro you can skip this part ; ). Compression stockings improve circulation, so your doctor might recommend compression if you have lymphedema, are having surgery or have vascular disease. But you don’t need a medical condition to wear them, because everyone can benefit from the improved circulation compression socks offer. Even if you've never noticed it before, your legs swell. Every day. Seriously, measure your ankles when you first wake up and when you go to bed that night, there will be a difference. As the day goes on gravity has a hard time getting all the blood back up your legs which causes swelling. This lack of blood flow can cause aching in your legs and even tiredness. Don compression stockings to reduce daily leg swelling and the cons that go with it. Other benefits of compression include reducing or preventing varicose veins and spider veins, speeding up recovery after a workout or long walk. Similarly, if you are sedentary, stand a lot or are pregnant your legs will thank you for wearing compression.
These socks can be confusing for a first-time purchaser because there are a variety of sizes and gradient pressures. Check out our size finder blog for help choosing the correct size for you. Or contact us, we have professional fitters ready to help. As for compression levels, a 20-30 mmHg sock will squeeze your leg tighter than 8-15 mmHg. If you’re just beginning your compression sock wearing journey you will want to start at 8-15 mmHg or 15-20 mmHg. Put your new compression socks on first thing in the morning and be amazed when you go to bed and realize the tired, achiness has disappeared. “My legs and feet are less tired when I wear them, and they control the swelling I tend to get in my ankles” one customer reviewed after purchasing an Allegro pair.
