Support Hosiery are good for your legs

Varicose veins — which often appear as blue or dark purple linear bulges on the legs or lower body — occur when faulty valves in the veins impair blood circulation. Very often, people will think that vericose veins is just cosmetic problem. However, that may not be true. 

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when blood circulation in the leg's deeper veins is blocked, causing blood clots. The clots restrict blood circulation and are potentially fatal if they move towards the heart or lungs. 

The thing is ... vericose veins or DVT could happen to both men and women. However, there are tips on how you can reduce your risk of developing varicose veins:

• Wearing graduated compression/support pantyhose/tights/stockings may help prevent vericose veins by improving blood circulation in the legs.
• If you need to stand or sit for long periods of time, make sure you get up and walk around every half hour to work out your calf muscles. 
• If you must stand for long hours, tip-toe around to help improve circulation.
• Tight clothing, especially those that constrict the thighs, is bad for circulation. So are high heels. • But if you can't bear to give up your heels, wear them only for special occasions instead of all the time.
• Try not to cross your legs too much when sitting.
• A lifestyle involving regular exercise and a balanced diet will help.

Why wait till you have vericose veins to start wearing support pantyhose/stockings? You should wear support pantyhose/stockings to prevent it from developing in the first place, especially if you stand or sit for long hours. Even the men should wear support hosiery.
