At some point in our lives, whether 18 or 80, we all suffer from tired aching legs. This can happen to any one of us, even if we keep active.
Some people suffer from varicose veins which can be unsightly and uncomfortable. These can be caused by your job i.e. standing for long periods of time. During long periods of inactivity, blood can pool in the veins of the legs, which cause a feeling of heaviness and sometimes cause swollen ankles. If these symptoms persist, this can lead to varicose veins. Prevention is better than cure and support tights are the answer. They apply a gentle pressure all over the leg and this gives a massaging effect, thus ensuring a healthy circulation through the leg. If you are going to use support tights with a denier 14 or higher we suggest you seek medical advice before you use them for the first time.
