What are compression stockings/socks?

Compression stockings and socks are specially made stretchy socks that fit very snugly, and gently squeeze your leg. The pressure these stockings and socks put on your legs helps your blood vessels work better. As a result, the arteries that take oxygen-rich blood to your muscles relax and the veins have a much easier time pushing the blood back to your heart. Compression stockings and socks can help to prevent your legs from getting tired and sore, and they can also ease swelling in your feet and ankles as well as help prevent spider veins and varicose veins.

WOMEN’S COMPRESSION TIGHTS

Along with compression socks that are meant to be worn under clothing and provide relief from muscle soreness and stiffness, SBK also offers women’s compression tights. These tights offer all of the benefits of compression socks and are just as stylish as any other pair of tights, so you can wear them with confidence and style. Compression tights for women are ideal for avoiding the pain that often comes with standing and sitting for extended periods of time. They work in the same way compression socks do by gently squeezing your legs and improving blood flow. Compression tights come in a variety of colours so you know you will always be able to find the pair that suits your own personal tastes!

WOMEN’S COMPRESSION THIGH-HIGHS

Compression thigh-highs are a popular choice for women who want to enjoy all of the benefits of compression socks but also want something they can wear with their favourite dresses and skirts. Compression thigh-highs are just what you need if you are looking for comfort and style all in one; they work in the same way compression socks work and gently squeeze your legs and thighs in order to encourage better blood flow and relieve aches and pains that are usually the result of standing or sitting for long periods of time. Compression thigh-highs are great for today’s busy woman who is constantly on the go. One of the best thing about SBK’s compression thigh-highs is that they come in a variety of colours, so you know you’ll always find the pair for you!
