How a Pair of Compression Pantyhose Can Keep You Healthy

Compression stockings, socks, and pantyhose are forms of hosiery meant to prevent and protect wearers from vein disorders.

Common Medical Reasons to Wear Compression Stockings and Pantyhose

  • Deep Vein Thrombosis - If pressure is not properly maintained in the veins of the leg, blood can gather in the feet and eventually form a clot. If a clot forms, it may travel through the veins and cause a clog elsewhere, leading to heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, or even death.
  • Varicose and Spider Veins - Varicose veins are caused by abnormal blood flow through the veins and valves of the leg. The misshapen veins cause the surrounding skin to bulge out.
  • Economy Class Syndrome (ECS) - Despite the playful name, this medical condition is not funny. Common for commuters on trains and long flights, this condition occurs due to long periods of inactivity while seated.
  • Pregnancy - Due to the changes a woman’s body undergoes during pregnancy, it is not uncommon for women to experience problems with their leg veins. The effects on the legs from pregnancy can have long lasting results by causing varicose veins or deep vein thrombosis.

High pressure compression stockings and stocks often have to be custom made for patients with advanced vein disorder symptoms. This quickly can become expensive over time, though some insurance companies will cover the costs.

Support tights and pantyhose from Hot Legs USA are available without a prescription and at far more affordable prices. Offering a mild compression, these are suitable for anyone hoping to prevent vein issues during pregnancy, travel, or daily life. By taking a proactive approach to your leg and vein health, you can stop vein disorders before they start.

How to Get the Most from Compression Pantyhose

Keep your pantyhose by the bed before you go to sleep. When you wake up, put on the pantyhose before sitting or standing up. This will keep your legs from swelling before your pantyhose are on. Make sure there are no wrinkles in the material for maximum effect.

The Stay Cool! support tights available from Hot Legs USA are made to offer mild compression with a professional appearance. Unlike some of the medically prescribed compression stockings, these pantyhose are designed to look like any other pair of tights. They can be worn to work with skirts or dresses for continual comfort throughout the workday.

Look Great and Feel Great in Tights

Not only do compression tights improve circulation and help reduce swelling, they are fashionable to wear under skirts or dresses at work or on a night out. You can even-out your skin tone and hide blemishes, bruises, scars, or cellulite. Pantyhose will also prevent chafing when you are wearing new shoes, even if the shoes don’t fit perfectly.
