Gotta Have: ATN Compression Socks

When you say the phrase ‘compression socks’, you often think socks for senior citizens. Well, that’s untrue. As a person who spends half her life on her feet walking from one end of the city to the other  compression socks became a necessity bout 4 years ago.

I was really sad when  I got the doctor’s suggestion that I needed to wear  them, I was sad. I have been wearing these ugly black and blue socks. Earlier this month I discovered  ‘ATN Socks’.  They are wonderful! I have been wearing them and they are comfortable and fashionable.

ATN compression socks and stockings treat phlebitis, thrombosis and aftercare following surgery, sclerotherapy and any other forms of varicose vein treatment, and also to relieve all conditions of chronic venous disease (heavy legs, varicose veins, oedemas, leg ulcers).

Compression hosiery is classed according to the amount of pressure (in mmHg) applied at the narrowest point of the ankle. You  should always consider the highest-grade sock or stocking you are able to tolerate or otherwise suggested by your medical practitioner. Classes include light support (12-14 mmHg), Moderate support (20-30 mmHg), Therapy (30-40 mmHg).

They have very pretty designs.  These were my favorites.

 

If it weren’t for these socks I would have been in massive pain. They aren’t expensive either and come in other fun designs.

They are

  • Antimicrobial fabric
  • Wide top band prevents socks from rolling down or cutting into back of calf
  • Roomy toe box
  • Breathable foot bed

So if you need a pair, please grab a pair here:

I promise you won’t regret it!
