Compression hose are full-length garments that extend from the foot to the waist. They are recommended if you're experiencing problems above your calf. Compression pantyhose are often used to treat issues such as varicose veins or general swelling. We carry compression hose for women in sheer and opaque varieties, as well as a selection of different colors. Be sure to talk to your doctor to determine which level of compression is best for your medical condition.
Express Medical Supply also offers maternity compression pantyhose specifically designed for pregnant women. Achy legs, swollen ankles, and varicose veins are common conditions that women experience during pregnancy. Wearing maternity support hose helps by improving blood flow and circulation. They come over the belly and are made from soft stretchy fabric for maximum comfort.
Compression leggings differ slightly from pantyhose, as they stop at the ankle. Support leggings are offered in 15-20 mmHg of compression, which is considered moderate. This makes them ideal for reducing minor swelling, preventing varicose veins, and treating deep vein thrombosis. Compression leggings for women are offered in a variety of colors each season.
