Say Yes to Compress-ion Socks!

What Are They?

Compression socks are not just another pair of knee highs to throw in your drawer! Rather these are socks with a "higher" purpose - specifically to improve blood flow. What? Yep, these 'super socks' are tightest around the ankles and become less constrictive as they head towards the knee in an effort to stimulate blood flow in the legs and feet. According to Web MD, "The pressure these stockings put on your legs helps your blood vessels work better. The arteries that take oxygen-rich blood to your muscles can relax, so blood flows freely. The veins get a boost pushing blood back to your heart."

So while you might struggle to get them on ...the relief they provide makes it 'ahhhh...' worthwhile!

Who Can Use Them?

Compression socks have become increasingly popular and are no longer just for people with circulation problems such as deep vein thrombosis, varicose veins or diabetes. In fact, many people who have jobs where they stand all day (moms!) or who spend long stretches of time on airplanes can reap the benefits of these snug fitting socks. Compression socks are also worn by athletes to help with circulation and soreness.

And of course, the Belly Bandit Compression Socks were created specifically with the needs of pregnant women and moms in mind - because there's nothing swell about swelling!

When it comes to "fit" there's tight, tighter and tightest so check with your doctor or start with the lowest level:

  • 8-15 mmHg: relieves minor swelling
  • 15-20 mmHg: prevents and relieves minor varicose veins; prevents deep vein thrombosis; ideal for travel
  • 20-30 mmHg: prevents and relieves moderate to severe varicose veins; treats moderate to severe edema; prevents deep vein thrombosis
  • 30-40 mmHg: prevents and relieves severe varicose veins; treats severe edema; prevents deep vein thrombosis

Why? So Many Benefits!

  • Improve venous blood flow.
  • Reduce swelling and overall discomfort
  • Prevent venous blood pooling in the legs and feet
  • Decrease the risk of blood clots.
  • Improve symptoms of vein disease.
  • Promote faster healing

What People Are Saying About Our Compression Socks

Candice C.

"I initially bought one pair of these socks to try out. I have various types of compression socks for work and the gym, but I wanted something more attractive for day to day wear now that I need to wear them every day due to pregnancy swelling. Style wise, they are absolutely adorable, and I love wearing them with my sun dresses. Functionality wise, they are a good middle of the road compression sock. If your swelling is just related to pregnancy or you are wearing them preventatively, they are an excellent option. I ended up buying three more pair and could not be happier with the product."

Madison H.

"I definitely recommend these socks. I had horrible swelling during my first pregnancy and my feet are already starting to swell by the end of the day at 26 weeks this time around. I wear the socks when I get home from work until I go to bed and they have helped tremendously."

Elizabeth L.

"What I love about these socks is they give a good squeeze to your feet as well as your calves! Great product, especially love the form they have to be able to bill insurance as well!"
