I am pregnant (at the end of my first trimester) and need some extra support due to the extra blood flow while I chase my toddler around all day. (I have weak valves in my legs and my legs ache after a long day even when I’m not pregnant.) These provide the perfect amount of support but also are thin enough to keep me cool while I am inside with a light pair of hiking pants on (my current mom uniform). I wear them for about 13 hours a day and just take them off about once a day for 30 minutes or so to let me legs rest (while reclined) and they remain comfortable that entire time and day after day.
I prefer the nylon ones to the cotton but both seem to help after long day on feet.
What a difference traveling in these, my first pair of compression stockings. The feel soooo good, prevent pain from standing and swelling from sitting and standing. And so easy to put on!
They are excellent
