In a perfect world I think everyone would own at least one pair of compression socks. There isn't a single person who couldn't benefit from wearing them at some point during their day to day.
You can benefit from compression socks if you are...
Pregnancy increases blood volume and pressure, which can inhibit blood flow and lead to swelling, fatigue, and varicose veins. In fact, about 30% of all expectant mothers will experience varicose veins during their first pregnancy. After a second or subsequent pregnancy, the odds increase to 55%.
Sitting for 90 minutes or more can cause blood flow below the knees to decrease by 50%, significantly increasing the chance of blood clots and reducing the amount of freshly oxygenated blood to reach your legs.
Being on your feet puts a 20% greater strain on the circulatory system and on the legs and feet, which can cause fatigue and varicose veins.
Using compression socks after working out increases the tissue oxygen recovery rate and has been shown to reduce muscle soreness by 28%.
According to a recent British study, "all forms of transport involving a journey of 4+ hours led to an increase risk of blood clots forming in the veins of the legs". Recent studies have concluded that airline passengers who wear compression stockings during flights can significantly reduce their risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) as well as leg swelling.
