So, would you make fun of me if I said that Pro Compression Socks have changed my life!?! ;-) Who knew I’d love them so much!?! Well before I tell you more, I want to thank Becky @ Olives ‘n’ Wine for doing a post on this brand and pointing me in the right direction. Oh yeah, she also got me 40% off these socks too!!! I always like a good discount!
Anyway, I’ve always had a problem with swelling in my lower legs. I have NO idea why and after many different tests, the doctors don’t seem to know why either. At one point (years ago), the doctor gave me the ugliest compression stockings on the face of the Earth to wear — he wanted me to wear them ALL day long! Well, that wasn’t going to happen, especially during the summertime, so I hid them out of sight! Essentially, I was pretty disgusted with getting NO answers and basically, learned to live with it. Sigh!
Working out regularly sometimes helps with the swelling, but my legs were feeling achy and tired afterwards (especially after running). Until I saw Becky’s post, I had NO idea the difference they could make after a workout. So, I ordered them in purple, of course. I’ve been wearing them every night after my workout and on days on don’t workout, I still slip them on. They make my legs and feet feel amazing, and I’ve noticed that the swelling in my legs has gone down! Woohoo!! Plus, they’re waaaay more stylish than those ugly ones the doctor gave me!
The Pro Compression Socks are extremely well-made and have a “graduated compression” technology that you can feel mainly around the ankle. Just where I need it! They’re super comfortable and the material is not itchy or scratchy. They’re easy to care for and can just be thrown right into the washer. They offer many different styles and colors to suit your needs. They can be a little difficult to get on because they’re tight, but it’s definitely worth the effort! I can’t say enough about them! :-)
What’s your experience with compression socks?
