We recommend this product to any pregnant women experiencing prominent varicose veins or fluid retention in their legs. These thigh highs will boost overall circulation, so will also assist in improving general leg fatigue. Thigh highs are a good option for women who do not like any feeling of restriction over their belly (even if mild) and who do not have any veins in the upper thigh or vulvar area.
Gabrialla Graduated Compression Thigh Highs Overview:
These graduated compression thigh highs provide firm compression of 23-30mmHg. While marketed as a sheer design, these are a little thicker than your average sheer stockings. They also feature a pretty lace band at the top.
The Gabrialla graduated compression thigh highs provide firmer support at the foot and ankle, where it is needed most. This compression then gradually decreases up along the leg to the knee and thigh. This unique construction acts like a ‘second heart’ by increasing blood circulation, helping prevent general body fatigue, and reducing painful swelling, aching and tiredness in lower legs.
These thigh highs are particularly suited to people who are currently pregnant or have recently given birth, are standing or working on their feet for long periods of time, as well as those who experience tiredness, aching, and swelling of the lower legs.
Varicose veins are gnarled, enlarged veins which appear close to the skin’s surface. Any vein has the potential to become varicose, but they most commonly occur in the legs and feet. For a lot of people, varicose and/or spider veins are simply a cosmetic concern. However, for other people, varicose veins can result in aching pain and discomfort. In some instances, the condition can lead to more serious problems. Varicose veins may also signal a higher risk of other disorders of the circulatory system.
