Worrying About The Size Of Your Thighs

Recently, there has been a lot of talk about compression socks and tights.  I looked up an article that was not written by one of the companies manufacturing compression items and found this: http://ingoodhealthfdl.agnesian.com/2013/06/26/benefits-of-wearing-compression-stockings/.

In synopsis, it says that it’s great for heart health, knee support, and shin splints.  Because I often twisted my knees as a child, I got a pair of thigh socks and have been wearing them under my yoga pants today.

First, I am pleased to report that I don’t have thick thighs.  I ordered a large so that both my husband and I could use them.  From my point of view looking down on my thighs, I feel I have larger than normal ones and thought the large would be fine.  I was wrong. Yipee! The large size slides down after some time of walking around which makes me realize that I could use the medium.  Lesson learned…when buying compression items, buy the correct size.

For the time that I was wearing them, I did feel like I was doing something great for my heart health.  It makes me feel like my veins and arteries are supported and things are working better together.

If you need some knee support, I recommend these thigh versions.  If not, get the knee highs and worry less about the slippage. No matter what, don’t worry about the size of your thighs.
