How do you Wear SRC Compression Sock for Women?
Make sure to even out your compression socks for pregnancy / compression socks for nurses or any other taxing jobs for your legs, so they are flat against your skin to avoid bunching. Make sure you have the right size and don't fold or roll your compression socks down, because this can make them too tight and cause blood circulation problems.
Pregnancy compression socks can help reduce discomfort in your feet, ankles and legs, and assist your circulation to be more comfortable when you are on your feet for long periods of time.
