Ihave to say the best part of my outfits for work is my leggings. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't wear them! I have a pair in every color and sometimes duplicate pairs....I wear one every day, and it looks fashionable and keeps my legs warm.
But some days, I am on my feet for over 12 hours - I am tired, and my legs are just plain sore. What's a girl to do?! I started buying compression hose, but they aren't that flattering and just not as cute or stylish. I don't want to just wear granny hose.
Therafirm has introduced a line of compression pantyhose/socks/leggings called Preggers specifically for maternity wear. I usually equate compression hose with aged people, but Preggers seems to add a sense of fun to sore and swollen legs! (Who knew such a thing could exist!)
Since I have yet to carry a ba-bay, I never really thought about pregnant women wearing compression hose. Yes. You're carrying extra weight and may have swelling, so this product totally makes sense! Since I am on my feet all day - I thought, Hey Why not give it a try?! The package claims the stocking/leggings will help improve circulation, prevent swelling, and energize tired legs and feet - which I have both.
Preggers hose has a special top to fit over your baby bump. It's very stretchy so the pair will still fit as your grow, and you can fold it under your belly or wear it over it to take advantage of the built-in tummy support. Since I am not carrying a baby, but added pounds (awesome. please sense the sarcasm), I just folded over the top.
I found Preggers to be really tight and a little more difficult to put on then regular pantyhose or tights. I tried the footless tights($24.95), and once I got them on though, they were comfortable and I really liked that they have smooth seams.
Preggers has a variety of compression products on their website. They come in a variety of fashionable colors like aubergine and cocoa. I picked the aubergine - which is a purplely brown.
Buy It: You can purchase these pantyhose at Preggers for $24.95 or at a few select retailers listed on the website.
