Benefits of Wearing Compression Socks

Who can benefit from compression socks?

Traditionally compression socks are known to benefit nurses, doctors, flight attendants, runners, pilots, pre and post-operative patients and anybody at risk of developing blood clots in their legs.  Now looking a little deeper into the traditional usage, the benefits of a quality graduated compression sock extend to anyone who spends considerable time sitting or standing.  In our production warehouse, staff have reported feeling notably better at the end of their 8 hour shifts.  

What are the benefits of wearing compression socks?

Compression socks promote circulation, reduce fatigue and minimise swelling.  This is achieved by applying pressure (compression) to the foot and calf in an effort to promote blood flow.

These pants are very comfy and soft, the material is light and thin and the colour stays ( i got steel)
however the sizes are slightly big, so i recommend going a size or two down
I wear size 10 pants and i fit into an XS size ( i got medium and it was way to big)

Many thanks for your review Cindy. We will certainly exchange for a better size ... no point having them if they don't fit :) You can lodge a return online quickly and easily. Hope this helps.

Fantastic for being on your feet all day.

Very happy with the product..


Great fit, comfortable and light to wear

Great socks

Being a vet nurse, I’m on my feet a lot. I found these socks really good as my feet and legs didn’t ache at the end of the day like they used to. I’d recommend them to anyone who gets tired legs from standing up all day. I also love that they are made of natural fibres that breathe.
