Ahhhh cankles. An unfortunate side-effect of pregnancy is edema... or swelling that's not just your baby bump.
Help your sore legs get back into your shoes with our compression socks!
In pregnancy, your body is producing A LOT more fluid and your blood is wooshing about like crazy. This can cause swelling that can not only make your lower legs swell up like a Christmas ham, it can also cause pain and pressure in your legs, sore feet and toes, varicose veins and cramps.
Why wear compression socks?
Compression socks can help reduce the discomfort in your legs, thanks to the gentle squeezing of your calves (but not so tight as to cut off blood flow!). This means less discomfort, especially if you're on your feet a lot (or at all if you're in your 3rd trimester!).
Wearing compression socks can provide relief through soft and comfortable compression, suitable to help with:
- Leg cramps.
- Edema and swelling.
- Varicose veins.
- May help reduce blood clots (please discuss this with your doctor).
The compression rating is 15-21mmHg, providing mid-range compression and support, ideal for light-moderate swelling.
Make sure to check your measurements before purchasing.
