When your varicose veins are aching, paining and weighing you down, there’s nothing like the ‘’aaaaahhhhh” relief you feel when you put on a pair of compression hose or socks. These “tighten-uppers” are an instant mood booster for your legs!
For those of you who know compression wear, it’s not always the most fashionable look to be caught in. But when your leg veins are throbbing and your muscles are talkin’ to you, compression takes the edge off – and that’s what you want.
