Great compression socks. They are relatively thick and offer good compression. Without being too tight or uncomfortable. I bought these to help reduce my swollen ankles from pregnancy. Some days I get swollen ankles despite exercising and eating healthy. When I notice swelling I put these on and instantly feel the compression helping to remove some swelling. Very comfortable and work great

I will be ordering a few more of these…..I love them. I am an RN who does 3-4 twelve hour shifts in a row. Any RN can tell you a 12 hr shift is rarely 12 hrs- instead it ends up being about 14 hrs. That is a long time on your feet! My legs felt wonderful the entire time I was in these socks. It is amazing what a good compression sock can do. I am a believer!

Very happy with both fit and compression. I love having bright, colorful compression socks. If you have to wear them, as I do (varicose veins and a job on my feet all day), they should be fun looking as well as functional.
