It is so critical that new and soon-to-be moms have everything they need to stay healthy and comfortable. With Mother’s Day around the corner, we wanted to share four reasons why VIM & VIGR’s compression socks are the perfect gift, if not a necessity, for new and expecting moms. Enjoy!
They reduce swelling – Pregnant women often experience swelling in the feet and ankles, which is a result of excess fluid collecting in your tissue. Many women agree that this can be not only uncomfortable, but also unflattering. Wearing VIM & VIGR’s knee-high compression socks aide in reduced swelling by increasing circulation throughout the legs, starting at the ankle.
They inhibit clotting – According to Medical News Today, new research suggests that the risk of women getting a blood clot is higher than normal for at least 12 weeks after delivering a baby. Blood clotting, or coagulation, is a process that stops excessive bleeding when a blood vessel is injured and naturally dissolves. When the clot does not dissolve, it can result in swelling, deep vein thrombosis pulmonary embolism and other complications.
They prevent more serious issues – While your growing belly is a beautiful thing, it’s important to protect yourself from the potential negative effects of impaired circulation. These issues can include varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis and overall leg fatigue. Every pair is made with advanced Gradient Pressure™ knitting technology that will help boost your blood circulation and prevent those undesirable side effects of pregnancy.
They’re cute –For some, your wardrobe will change a lot over the course of nine months, but with VIM & VIGR, styling your tootsies doesn’t have to be a burden. With four different fabrics to choose from (cotton, wool, nylon and moisture-wick nylon) and 16 lovable styles (stripes, argyle, polka dots and solids), you won’t be uncomfortable or embarrassed to wear them out to the store, at the gym or even to work!
