Why I am Satisfied with Compression Socks

Okay… today is about a shameless plug for something new in my life… compression socks!

I know.  You might have the same impression I’ve had of compression socks.  They are for old people.  Then, a few things happened in my life.  I got old.  My leg ache so bad I can’t sleep at night.  And I was impressed with how much my friend Sheri loves her compression socks.  Seriously, I did not anticipate how painful and sore my legs would get.  I also did not anticipate how good these socks would work.

At first I wondered why compression socks work for people. Well, I learned that compression improves circulation and oxygenated blood flow.  I’m not an athlete, but I am on the go all the time.  Compression socks provides extra support to stabilizes the muscle tissues and reduces inflammation.  Compression socks reduce the swelling in my legs at the end of a long day.

I actually feel a little silly that I have never tried compression socks before now!  Besides being so darn helpful, I have found many fun and funky colors and patterns in these spiffy little socks.  I was worried that they wouldn’t fit my fat legs.  The brands I found fit!  And they don’t roll down my legs.  They stay put.  I thought they would be too hot.  So far, so good.  They are super comfy.

These are the socks I bought on Amazon.
