I love compression stockings. I have always had poor veinous return in my legs and love how compression socks help support the tiny blood vessels that return blood back to my heart. This isn't my first pair of compression socks. I purchased my first pair when I was pregnant with my 3rd baby and was having problems with spider and varicose veins. My legs would ache all the time but with compression stockings on I noticed a big improvement in my leg fatigue and my ability to stand for longer periods of time.
Even when I'm not pregnant my legs will get tired easily if I'm standing for too long, so I knew that this compression thing was a good idea for my legs. I was using the compression stockings I had from my pregnancy off and on for a couple of years and recently decided it was time for a new pair.
I searched on Amazon and found Mojo brand to be affordable with good reviews.
Here is my Fit, Feel, Function rating:
Fit: 8.9 I ordered a size SMALL. The foot and ankle width could be a little tighter and supportive (ie, more compressive) for me but I have pretty small ankles and average to narrow foot width. This is the only reason for the lower rating. The compression around the rest of my leg is superb without being too tight.
Feel: 10 These feel nice. Not scratchy and they stay put.
Function: 10 They fulfill the measure of their creation. My legs feel supported and even energized with them on. I think compression stockings and running shorts are my new favorite uniform for running.
I love movement and habits that promote health and lifetime wellness. I also like stretchy pants, being outside and good-for-you food! Follow me on Instagram @DawnBrownCoaching for more frequent updates.
