Long flights can be tough on your legs. Sitting for extended periods can cause swelling and discomfort, and in some cases, more serious conditions like Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). One effective way to prevent these issues is by wearing compression stockings. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to wear them on long flights.

Step 1: Choose the Right Stockings

The first step is to choose the right compression stockings. You'll want to consider factors like compression level, size, material, and design. You can find a variety of options in our compression socks and stockings collection.

Step 2: Put Them On Correctly

Put on your compression stockings before you start your journey, ideally before you leave for the airport. It's easier to put them on while you're still at home and your legs are less swollen.

Step 3: Keep Them On

Keep your compression stockings on throughout the flight. They should also be worn for at least 2 to 3 hours after the flight to ensure optimal blood flow.

Step 4: Take Care of Your Stockings

After the flight, wash your compression stockings according to the care instructions. Proper care will extend their lifespan and ensure they provide the right amount of compression. You can find care instructions for our compression socks and stockings on our website.
