Growing up I remember I had a dance teacher who always wore compression socks when she taught us. She had amazingly long pretty legs, and she told us that the socks helped circulate blood, and energize her legs when she taught us. She continued to wear them while she was pregnant too, and even during pregnancy, her legs were still long and beautiful!
When I became pregnant with Marloe, I bought a few pair of compression socks, and completely fell in love with them! I never had swollen ankles, and my legs didn't feel tired when I was standing for a long time. I always wore them when I traveled, and it helped my legs not to be restless/swollen during the long flights.
So today I teamed up with VIM & VIGR to talk about their super cute compression socks, and why compression socks are so awesome!!! Here are a couple of reasons people wear compression socks:
-If you're standing for long periods of the day: I once worked for Delta Airlines as a gate agent. I was on my feet for 7 hours a day, and boy did my legs ache a few hours into my shift everyday. I was pregnant with Marloe then too, and thats when I first purchased compression socks. After I started wearing them, I immediately noticed a difference after that first day.
-If you're sitting a lot throughout the day. Aka, you have a desk job: Many people have desk jobs, and sit for hours a day. Your legs may start to feel restless, tired, and may even swell. Compression socks are a must, if this sounds like you!
-If you work out, and stay pretty active: On the VIM&VIGR sit they wrote this about wearing compression socks helps your active lifestyle; "Using compression socks after working out increases the tissue oxygen recovery rate and has been shown to reduce muscle soreness by 28%."
-If you're Expecting: Women who are pregnant are also at a high risk for the development of a Deep Vein Thrombosis, known as DVT. ... Additionally, pregnancy causes hormonal changes that increase blood coagulability, a measure of how easily blood clots. Wearing compression socks can help keep your legs healthy during pregnancy and beyond. I swear by them during pregnancy, and noticed my legs didn't swell, and stayed energized throughout those 9 months. It also helped me to not get spider veins!
