This blog post from my sister will give you a few ideas for what to look for when purchasing and wearing compression stockings. You may not have heard of compression stockings before, but this is a great way to wear them that doesn’t involve the inconvenience of buckling up with a belt.

Compression stockings work by constricting the blood vessels that lead to your feet. This is similar to a bandage, but it does not require you to keep your foot open to wear it. Instead it is simply a compression band that helps to close the vessels, which is why compression stockings may not be as high in price as they are in other ways.

Compression stockings can be used for a myriad of purposes from preventing blood clots to maintaining a healthy range of movement. There are countless ways to wear them, from the most basic to the most advanced, but they are not cheap. If you have the money to spend, you can invest in a compression stockings specialist who can help you create the perfect compression stocking for your needs.
