Pain Relief and better Blood Circulation with 23-32 mmHg Medical Support
Poor blood circulation, pain in your calves, legs and muscles, muscle fatigue or varicose veins have a severe impact on the lives of millions of people. On the other side, being active and fit becomes more and more important, too. If you want to maintain that active lifestyle, you probably need some help along the way. At least if you want to avoid pain killers as much as possible.
The newly designed Thigh High Compression Stockings are made for both men and women. Whether you like the classic open-toe design or prefer a closed-toe version, we got you covered. Providing the best comfort has become mandatory these days and doesn’t even count as a feature. That’s why we equipped our stockings with premium breathability knit, reinforced heel technologies and a silicone anti-slip function. That helps you wear these stockings as long as you want or need. Discretely under your normal clothes or at night.
23-32 mmHg of graduated compression that comes in three different levels is the perfect grade 2 for all day comfort and medium medical use. Thigh-high pressure socks may be the most comfortable choice of compression garments out there and perfectly suited for active lifestyles.
What’s the difference between closed and open-toe designs?
The open-toe style thigh-highs are perfect for everyone who likes to keep their toes free. Toeless socks allow for better air flow and the ability to wear flip flop sandals. And for those who love to wiggle their toes, this is the perfect variation to choose. An added bonus is that these types of stockings are way easier to put on and take off.
Closed-toe or full foot thigh-highs are your preferred choice if you need to wear shoes throughout the day. Or if you need to walk a lot, as they wear exactly the same as just normal socks from the comfort side. Closed-toe compression socks make it easier to take your footwear on and off because of the smooth and slick fabric.
However, both variants are perfectly suited for all kinds of patients, workers in physical jobs, athletes or people with medical conditions. Just make sure to refer to the size chart and measure the circumference of your thighs to be sure.
Why should I wear thigh-high compression stockings?
While wearing high-high compression socks might look like a serious commitment, you should take into consideration that the taller the stocking, the greater the benefits. Most of the products in the market cover feet and calves pretty good, and we have some awesome products for those body parts available too. But only high-highs make sure that your knees, quadriceps and hamstrings aren’t left out. So if you have any issue above the knee, such as a swelling, only thigh-high stockings will be able to help you out.
Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs. That promotes blood blow and better circulation and prevents swelling and, in many cases, blood clots. Thigh-high compression stockings ensure that you get the absolute most out of this compression for the entire leg. That is especially important when recovering from an injury or surgery.
Spider or varicose veins not only occur in calves. If you have spider or varicose veins in your thighs, especially along the back side of your leg or knee, you can treat them with compression by wearing thigh-high compression socks. The same goes for swelling above the knee. Thigh-highs are just the perfect choice if you want it all and not just address a certain body part alone.
Tips to put thigh-high compression stockings on
Thigh-high socks can be a challenge to put on. Mostly because they’re so long. Here are some handy tips how to make your life easier with them:
- Put them on first thing in the morning before you get out of bed when there is a minimum of swelling
- Roll the stocking down to the heel, then insert your foot into the stocking.
- Pull the stocking up slowly, unrolling it over your leg as you go.
- After you have rolled the stocking up over your entire leg, adjust it so there are no wrinkles or bunching.
- If your skin is dry, making it difficult to put on the stocking, try applying some lotion beforehand but make sure it absorbs all the way.
- You can also use a little bit of baby powder or cornstarch on your legs to help the stocking slide more easily.
- If you find putting or taking off the stockings to still be difficult, you can purchase a butler, gloves or other donning device specifically to assist you.
- As with any compression therapy product, wash the stocking each day with mild soap and water, then rinse and air dry.
- If you can, try to own at least two pairs of thigh-high compression stockings so you can alternate between them, wearing one while the other dries.
