Support for both Men & Women
Modern compression tights are sophisticated in design and provide consistent pressure to the legs, increasing blood circulation while offering a comfortable wear that looks and feels attractive. Many styles feature gradient compression that gradually decreases or increases the amount of pressure that is exerted at different points of the leg.
Doctors often recommend compression tights or stockings to improve circulation, stop varicose veins from getting worse, and reduce pain or discomfort. Although compression tights do not cure varicose veins, they can reduce the appearance and painful symptoms associated with them. During pregnancy, women can suffer from tired, swollen and achy feet & legs. Compression tights can relieve this pain and increase circulation by supporting the blood and veins in your legs against the force of gravity, getting the blood back up to your heart and the rest of your upper body more effectively. As far back as ancient times, Roman soldiers often wrapped their legs in leather straps to improve circulation during long marches to combat leg fatigue.
The pressure created when wearing compression tights helps reduce swelling and fatigue in the legs, perfect for keeping legs energised if you are on your feet all day or for those who find sitting at a desk causes swelling or poor circulation in the ankles and feet. Compression hosiery is a cost-effective, easy to use and safe alternative to traditional multilayer bandaging, which can be used to help those suffering from deep vein thrombosis or varicose veins.
