How To Wear

It’s a great idea to put your socks on first thing in the morning before any swelling occurs. If you’re already experiencing swelling, lay down and rest your legs on an elevated pillow for about 15 minutes to help reduce swelling before putting your socks on. Cornstarch or talcum powder can help compression socks slide on when your skin is either moist or too dry (Psssst…Not a great idea to try and put these on if you've first put lotion on your feet or legs).

Put your arm all the way into your compression socks. Especially for knee-high socks, your arm will go all the way in until your palm is on the heel of the sock.  Pinch the middle of the heel of the sock, now pull the top of your sock down your arm so it’s flipped inside out.  When you reach your thumb (while still holding the heel of the sock) this gives you easy access to put it on your foot.  Now, slip your foot in and try rolling the sock up towards your knee.

Top FAQs

How do maternity compression socks work?

When sitting or standing for extended periods of time, blood tends to pool at the bottom of your legs and feet—and this is especially true when you’re pregnant. Our maternity compression socks provide 15-20 mm Hg of compression for your calves, ankles, and feet to improve circulation during pregnancy and direct blood flow back toward your heart.

What is the purpose of maternity compression socks?

During pregnancy, blood volume increases by up to 50%, and your body retains more water in order to support your growing baby. All this fluid can cause swelling, especially in your legs and feet. Maternity compression socks help alleviate some of this swelling and can also energize your legs.

Is it OK to wear compression socks while pregnant?

Yes! Maternity compression socks are a great tool to reduce swelling and fatigue during pregnancy.

When should a pregnant woman wear compression socks?

You may not feel the need to wear compression socks in your first trimester, but as your pregnancy progresses, swelling will likely increase, as well. We recommend wearing maternity compression socks as early as you feel comfortable, and especially while traveling or sitting and standing for long periods of time.

How long should you wear compression socks?

Maternity compression socks can be worn for several hours at a time throughout your entire pregnancy to support blood flow. Many women find them to be helpful during those first six weeks after delivery, while your body’s fluid levels are still adjusting.

Is it okay to wear maternity compression socks all day long?

Yes. If they fit comfortably, the best compression socks for maternity can be worn all day long. Remove before bed, and consult your doctor if you experience any pain while wearing your maternity compression socks.

Our compression socks feature a flattering scalloped edge and come in five fashionable neutral colors, making them perfect for all day, everyday wear.

Can you exercise while wearing these maternity socks?

Absolutely! Wearing maternity compression socks can make exercise more comfortable during pregnancy, and help with recovery.

Can these compression socks be worn postpartum?

Yes—wearing maternity compression socks after delivery can be very beneficial for your mobility and circulation.

Do these maternity socks help provide foot pain relief and alleviate swelling?

Definitely. The best compression socks for maternity help relieve painful swelling in your feet, ankles, and calves. We recommend putting them on first thing in the morning to prevent swelling throughout the day.

How do you know what size maternity compression socks to buy?

When researching where to buy compression socks for pregnancy, pay attention to sizing. Make sure to order based on your shoe size to ensure the most comfortable fit. Belly Bandit’s maternity compression socks come in two sizes: 6–9 and 8–11.

What are the best compression socks for maternity?

The best compression socks for maternity provide a snug, secure fit, without feeling too tight. They also increase circulation, alleviate swelling, and use silver-infused material to eliminate bacteria and odor. Belly Bandit’s mission is to support women during and after pregnancy with high-quality products, and our maternity compression socks are no exception.

Compression socks

I wear these when I work at the office and they really keep my lower legs from getting edema like they used to before I started wearing these socks. They also keep my feet cool. Just wish they were a bit more affordable! I haven't had to wash them several times yet so not sure how they will stand that in terms of their longevity and compression ability but we will see.

Great socks!

I love these socks and have been wearing them almost daily for the past couple weeks. As with all compression socks, they key is putting them on correctly: gather the sock all the way down to the toe, then put on over your foot and pull up. I will continue wearing these throughout pregnancy (and should probably do it all the time since I sit at a computer all day) to prevent swelling and vein issues.

Bought 1 then bought 2 more!

I was hesitant to buy these but I’m so glad I did. I work sitting down all day and swelling became a problem much earlier in this pregnancy than my first. I now wear these compression socks all day almost every day! They make a huge difference in my comfort and I would not be able to make it through the day, no matter how active, without them. Would definitely buy again!

Really work!

So glad I purchased these compression socks. They feel supportive and reduce the swelling from being on my feet all day. Wish I would have purchased another pair.

LOVE, but the material is not my favorite

I first want to start off by saying that I love these socks! When you first put them on, they feel uncomfortably tight, but then after a bit, they feel very comforting. I slept in them and then didn't want to take them off all day long the next day. I bought a size 2 because I have bigger calves from being a weightlifter, but then the heel portion was too big and ended up marking along my ankle. I kept them anyway, because the size 1 would likely not fit my calves. The only gripe that I have is that the material is a magnet for lint/fuzz, which is not attractive. The moment I put them on, everything started clinging to them (like lint from my sheets) and I wanted to wear them to the gym w/shorts, so I lint rolled them, but the socks are like a magnet for more lint, no matter what you do. If you care about that, do not opt for the black color.
