Great socks. I bought both ankle and the knee ones, and now ordered a second pair of ankle ones. They are very comfortable and provide good compression. On some days when I have a lot of swelling from too much sitting they don't fully remove it, but the feet feel much better regardless. I had varicose veins also before pregnancy and had to use compression stockings for flights, but these socks are so much more comfortable than the nylon ones. Definitely plan to use after pregnancy.
I wear these socks at the end of the working day when my feet and calves are swollen and achy, and they really do help reduce swelling and stiffness. They’re also great to wear all day when I’m working from home.
These socks are amazing! My last c-section, my legs and feet were super swollen for weeks; my feet would shake with the fluid when I walked and my skin was so tight and uncomfortable. I ordered these socks when I found out I was having another csection. When I got home from the hospital, I put them on and not only did my swelling not get as bad, but it completely went away in just a couple days.
After my csection feet and calves swelled up like balloons for 2 weeks. Thankfully a quick thinking relative gifted me these and it worked wonders for the swelling bringing my legs back down to normal size. I wore them for about a week and didn’t have any more issues with swelling.
