At times, wearing compression hosiery can be difficult or uncomfortable, but wearing them in extremely important to maintain circulation and vascular health. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when compression stockings are a must:
- If you want to wear sandals, look for an open toed or footless stocking in a color that most closely resembles your skin tone, this will allow you to blend in and still wear the open-toed shoes you love!
- If you enjoy exercising outdoors, consider using athletic compression socks. Professional athletes often use compression leggings because they offer exceptional support, reduce muscle fatigue and are made from a sweat-wicking material that helps you stay cool.
- If putting your stockings on is difficult, consider using donning gloves and baby powder, which can help you slide on your compression stockings more easily.
