You asked we answered, we now not only have 15-20 mmHg Compression Tights, but we now have 20-30 mmHg Compression Tights! This has been a highly requested item since we have worked to expand into offerings with higher compression. Our 20-30 mmHg socks have been a hit for our customers with Dysautonomia, POTS, and those seeking higher levels of compression, and now our tights can join them as a step above the rest.
How Did We Develop Our 20-30 mmHg Compression Tights?
Getting the 20-30 mmHg tights right was no easy feet (get it? Because tights go on feet? I’ll be here all week...) Our sock designer Lindsey Thompson walks us through why.
“We love hearing from our customers and what we LOVE even more, is being able to respond to their requests. Developing a 20-30 tight isn’t as easy as changing up the yarn or compression level. Many rounds of fit tests needed to be conducted in order to achieve the best possible fit. The reason for this is the process of upping the compression level or say using a different fabric can and does alter the fit…And after several rounds of fit tests, we can confidently say that our 20-30 mmHg Compression Tights fit beautifully. Now our customers needing higher compression can benefit from our stylish footed compression tights…And just in time for the winter months. We can’t wait to get your legs in them!”

With the release of these tights, we hope to inspire our customers to keep requesting what they want to see! Another request we filled with this launch was with our Juliet Floral Wool Sock. Our Merino Wool has been well-loved for backpacking, walking, and cozying up after a long day. After many requests for a floral pattern in this temperature regulating fabric, we are so excited to offer our Merino Wool in Juliet Floral. This sock is also available in 20-30 mmHg as well as 15-20 mmHg. Now, you may be asking:
What do the different levels of compression mean?
We answer this question in more detail in more detail in a previous post, but in short:
- 15-20 mmHg is light compression, which is great for travel, mild to moderate edema, pregnancy, achiness, spider and varicose veins.
20-30 mmHg is medium compression, this moderate compression is great for edema, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), lymphedema, pre-and post-surgical applications and moderate varicose veins.
- 30-40 mmHg is firm support that usually comes as a prescription from a doctor, used for treating conditions such as venous insufficiency, DVT, lymphedema and dysautonomia.
Why Our Compression Tights are Different
We keep in might that everybody has a different shape. We not only acknowledge this but embrace it. We believe that compression can be fashionable and we try to push the envelope constantly to come up with the best looking medical-grade legwear, and our 20-30 mmHg Compression Tights are another step in the right direction.
