I’ve always been quite fond of my legs. Of all the body parts that I treasure, my stems have to be my most favorite feature. When I found out I was pregnant, I was well aware of the impact that carrying a baby would have on my beloved set. I could already envision the varicose veins amid all the swelling and achy pains. Luckily, I learned about Preggers by Therafirm Footless Light Compression Maternity Tights just in time to reap the benefits of support and compression hosiery.
LS_MaternityWhat I like best about this product is the fact that they are designed “by future moms for future moms.” Compression hose are not a new idea so it would be easy for a brand to sit back and refuse to make any changes to a product staple. Therafirm makes it a point to research what real expecting moms are saying and they take those comments and apply them to their innovation. That means we are getting the best product possible.
Gone are the days of simple black tights and Preggers comes in a variety of fun hues including sand, white and cobalt blue. The fun colors give expecting mamas who are fashion conscious a wide variety to choose from. The tights come with feet or without, so you can choose the best option for your toes, as well as, the best option for your seasonal attire. Paired with a chic dress or long tunic, these tights are a definite addition to my wardrobe that can be worn during and after pregnancy.
Not only do these tights look and feel great, they come packed full of benefits for your blossoming body. The key lies with the gradient compression. The hose are tighter at the ankle and then gradually decrease in tautness toward the top of the stocking. This promotes better blood flow, improves circulation and helps to prevent swelling. Everything feels tucked in and right where it should be. The maternity waistband allows you to wear them rolled down at the waist or up over your belly, depending on your preference. The tights, as opposed to other options, are light compression so they are safe for everyday wear. Since I sit for long periods of time at work, these tights are ideal for helping my circulation. They are also a must-have if you stand up at work all day. I even have a friend who swears by them. She got horrible varicose veins with her first baby and so she looked for this product to help with her second. She is sure they helped keep her veins at bay the second time around. I am sure they have also helped my own pregnant legs to remain less swollen and achy, and as of yet, no varicose veins have appeared.
Whether you are just starting your pregnancy, are in the middle, at the end or just after birth, you will want to pick up a pair of these compression tights. They look and feel great and have so many benefits that keep your legs in tip-top condition. Visit the Therafirm website for sizing information and helpful tips.
