Looking Stylish with Compression Therapy Stockings
Nothing sounds less fashionable than the long, 12 syllable phrase "Graduated Compression Therapy Stocking", or the lesser-syllable buy equally arduous "Medical Therapy Stocking" for that matter. Most compression stockings are first designed with comfort in mind, but fortunately, thanks to innovative manufacturing and design, you do not have tosacrifice style when donning your own pair of compression stockings.
Manufacturers of compression therapy products such as Jobst and Sigvaris have many series of stockings and socks available for all interests, combining style and color with therapy that cane be worn casually, professionally, or socially.
Here is a glance at Sigvaris' line of Compression Therapy products and how they have combined style with comfort and graduated compression therapy:

Athletic Socks for Men and Women
