Hello there, lovely folks of the Great White North! We're Odd Duck Compression Socks, and we're here to talk about one of our favourite topics: wearing compression stockings.

As Canadians, we understand the importance of staying comfortable and stylish in every season. Compression stockings are not just therapeutic; they can also be a fashionable accessory. So, let's dive into the world of compression stockings and discover how to wear them best, eh?

Choosing the Right Compression Level:
First things first, you need to select the appropriate compression level. Compression stockings come in various strengths, from light to extra-firm. Consult with a healthcare professional to determine the right compression level for your specific needs. Odd Duck offers a range of compression levels, so you're sure to find the perfect fit.

Sizing Matters:
Proper sizing is crucial for comfort and effectiveness. Measure your leg circumference at the widest part of your calf and the length from your heel to just below your knee. Odd Duck provides a sizing chart to help you find the right size. Avoid stockings that are too tight or too loose, as they won't provide the desired benefits.

Donning Your Compression Stockings:
Putting on compression stockings can be a bit tricky, but with practice, you'll become a pro. Here's how to do it:

a. Start with clean, dry legs.
b. Turn the stocking inside out up to the heel.
c. Insert your hand into the stocking and grab the heel.
d. Gently pull the stocking over your foot, ensuring it's snug but not too tight.
e. Gradually roll the stocking up your leg, smoothing out any wrinkles as you go.

Daily Maintenance:
To keep your compression stockings in tip-top shape, follow these tips:

a. Hand wash them in lukewarm water with mild soap or a specialized compression stocking detergent.
b. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, as they can damage the fabric.
c. Rinse thoroughly and gently squeeze out excess water.
d. Lay them flat to air dry, avoiding direct heat or sunlight.

Incorporate Compression Socks into Your Wardrobe:
Now, let's talk about the fun part: styling your compression stockings. They don't have to be hidden away; you can incorporate them into your outfits effortlessly. Consider these tips:

a. Pair your compression stockings with skirts, dresses, or shorts to show them off.
b. Choose stockings with patterns and colours that complement your outfits.
c. Coordinate your compression stockings with your shoes for a polished look.

Comfort is Key:
Remember that compression stockings are designed to provide comfort and relief. If you ever experience discomfort or pain, consult your healthcare provider. It may be necessary to adjust the compression level or try a different size.
