Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. Why wear compression socks in pregnancy?

Wearing compression socks when pregnant can help alleviate edema and varicose veins by increasing blood flow to the legs. They also help relieve leg discomfort and fatigue, supporting the veins. This can be particularly helpful during the later stages of pregnancy when the uterus puts increased pressure on the veins in the legs, leading to potential circulation issues or pooling of blood in the legs. 

Q 2. When is the best time to wear compression socks during pregnancy?

Generally speaking, the second and third trimesters of pregnancy are the most suitable times to use compression socks. This is when the growing uterus exerts the most pressure on the veins in the legs, potentially causing swelling and discomfort. Wearing compression socks during this time can help manage these symptoms and promote better blood flow, reducing the risk of developing varicose veins.

Q3. Do compression socks help with pregnancy nausea?

Compression socks are not designed to address pregnancy-related nausea directly. Nausea during pregnancy is usually related to hormonal changes and other factors. However, wearing compression socks may help improve blood circulation and reduce leg discomfort. 

Q4. What size compression socks do I need for pregnancy?

For optimal comfort and efficacy, selecting the correct size of compression socks is essential. Your gynecologist or healthcare provider will best recommend a proper size for a pair of compression socks. But, also, for your reference, we have a detailed page dedicated to choosing the correct size for the garment and taking measurements. This will help you to buy the correct size. 

Q5. Do compression socks help with swelling after pregnancy?

Yes, compression socks can be beneficial in reducing swelling after pregnancy, a condition known as postpartum edema. Swelling of the legs and feet is a common symptom of pregnancy-related fluid retention. Compression socks promote better circulation and help push excess fluid back toward the heart, reducing swelling and discomfort. Additionally, keeping your legs elevated, reducing salt intake, and keeping yourself hydrated are some things to remember to minimize swelling after childbirth.
