When you think about compression stockings, you might envision some super-thick, brown, knee high compression stockings that are totally obvious and unfashionable. We wouldn’t blame you for thinking that, since for a long time, this was a very common style of compression stockings and one of the few styles available at all. However, those days are now in the past.
Compression stockings are now available in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and styles like compression pantyhose, thigh high compression stockings, and compression socks for women or men. Today’s manufacturers have designed compression garments that are intended to look more like regular garments, such as athletic socks, dress socks, pantyhose or nylons. The available colors have also expanded quite a bit to mimic regular accessories and you are no longer limited to a single, opaque nude option.
Compression stockings for women also are available with fashion details, such as thigh high compression stockings with a pretty lace detail at the top, or the traditional banded top seam found on most regular thigh highs. Or you can knee high compression stockings with an open-toe, so you can wear them with your favorite peep toe high heels. Men’s knee high compression stockings are also available in open toe varieties, or you can choose a style that looks almost identical to a white athletic sock and wear then with your favorite sneakers without anyone knowing you’re wearing compression socks!
