Love these Socks
on September 12, 2016
My dermatologist had told me to purchase compression socks to help with blood circulation to assist in healing skin issues. So being a nurse, I wanted to evaluate some different ones to see which is best for me. Since there are SO many kinds and different brands, I decided to try 7 different brands and evaluate which felt the best. Why 7: because it is the number of completion in the bible!
So I tried blitzu, vital sox, ABCO direct, compression Z, A swift, and endurance shield. Some of them felt too tight - like they would wrinkle in the wrong place and feel like they cut into my skin in uncomfortable ways. And understand that they are all difficult to put on as they need to fit you tight to work well. But some were impossible to get on. Others I didn't like because they tended to be too tall and would roll. So after my thorough evaluation, I settled on these socks: blitzu as my favorite due to the feel of the material, the way the patterns provided pressure in just the right places and how they also made my feet feel supported since I have flat feet.
My second fav. was Abco Direct. The others I returned because they didn't work for me. I feel like compression socks are one of those things that may feel differently on various persons so you need to try a few and see what works for you. BTW for the short (not knee high) compression socks, I like the sock well ones. Compression socks are worth the effort of finding the right.one to help with. Blood circulation that addresses a number of problems from arthritis, sore feet and legs, leg inflammation , andskin irritations to preventing leg cramps! Go for it!! 😀
