  • Why rock a compression sock?

    Who really wears compression socks and stockings? If you’re like many, you probably think they’re for the sick, the elderly, or someone who recently had surgery. But did you know most anyone could benefit from wearing compression?

    As the founder of RejuvaHealth, I’m often asked and challenged on this topic by those who ask me what I do. When I tell them about our line of fashionable compression stockings, I commonly hear:

    “I’m healthy so I don’t need compression.”

    “I think my grandma wears those so I definitely don’t need them.”

    “I know someone who had to wear compression  - but they had a medical procedure so I’m different.”

    Did you know compression legwear actually comes in a variety of support levels for just that purpose? While some versions offer firm support designed specifically for therapeutic uses, light support variations are actually designed for preventative & general lifestyle applications – think travel, pregnancy, varicose veins, spider veins & more.  By hugging the legs with gradually lessening compression (specifically tightest at the ankle & looser above), compression socks help your legs do what they should be doing naturally - move blood upwards from the extremities and to the heart.

     

    It sounds simple – but that’s the beauty of it. Unlike an invasive procedure or risky oral medication, elastic compression garments offer a holistic remedy for the common achiness, heaviness, and fatigue that can accompany a busy daily routine.

    Still not sure whether you’re like anyone else who wears compression? Follow me on the streets of Southern California as I ask real life wearers why they love it. The results & reasons people wear it may surprise you.

  • On Your Mark...Jet Set...GO!

    Traveling can be a very transportal experience — literally.  Regardless of where you are headed, your trip begins the second you walk out of your front door… so, why are you still wearing your beat-up sweats to the airport? To make your adventure feel all the more special (and save space in your suitcase!),your traveling outfit should be as put-together as what you're going to be wearing on your trip. No need to sacrifice comfort, though — there are plenty of strategically cozy pieces that are mega stylish, as well. Now, put down those shearling boots and step away from the velour: We've put together a mini lookbook to satisfy your traveling needs.

    Cozy, comfy pants and loose V-Neck, a bomber jacket, a light scarf, RejuvaHealth’s travel friendly knee highs, the perfect rollaway, and a classic pair of flats – this outfit has the potential to take you anywhere, while at the same time keeping the changing climates (and cultures) in mind.

    A light carry on is a must, a pair of boyfriend jeans, a soft striped shirt, a lightweight jacket, converse sneakers and RejuvaHealth’s travel friendly knee highs --  this outfit is just enough preparation for some kind of delay (knock on wood).  It comfortable yet still cute enough to wear for two days!  What better than way to show your patriotism with some stripes, converse and a (less obnoxious) red jacket?!

    Here are some helpful travel tips:

    • Always pack the essentials in your carry on – toothbrush, change of clothes, face wipes, deodorant – you can never trust estimated time of arrivals...for you OR your luggage.
    • Wear compression socks – during a long flight, your legs can get restless and achy from the poor circulation you’re getting from sitting too long (not to mention the altitude).  This is an easy and preventive measure for health issues that can be sparked when flying.
    • Bring some type of entertainment (I.e. a book, headphones, i-pad).  The flight magazines get boring after a while – trust me.
    • Choose your seat ASAP – the instant you book your flight, choose your seat.  Flights are becoming more crowded now and the only thing worse than getting stuck beside a smelly person is getting stuck in between two smelly people.
  • Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas that Will Have Cupid Falling Head Over Heels

    Questioning what to wear this Valentine’s Day/Weekend? Here are a few outfit ideas to help make dressing for your date a breeze! Remember the most important part is to make sure the outfit is comfortable and encompasses at least one accessory that defines you. Whether it is your grandmother’s necklace, a ring you found in the Cracker Jack box at age 5, or that flower hair pin you just couldn’t resist buying, be sure to rock it!

     

    Date Night -

    Our Pink Paisley Pantyhose, available in 15-20 mmHg or 20-30 mmHg compression levels are perfect for the occasion. Try pairing them with your favorite little black dress and some pumps. The rosy pink color of your stockings is sure to match your date’s cheeks when you go in for that kiss.

    Looking for something that’s a little more subtle, but still has that playful appeal? Take our Lavish Leopard Thigh Highs out for the night. Their versatile pattern looks great with a pair of brown boots and a tan skirt or dress. We love this pattern with silver or gold accessories.

    Worried that your slim fitting dress will highlight all the wrong areas? Then Solidea’s Silver Wave Tummy Band is a great option for you.  Wear the tummy band under your clothing and let its three-dimensional wave fabric work its magic. With this garment acting as a second skin, your clothing will appear smooth & bulge free.

     

    Day on the Town  -

    Planning to take a stroll at the local shopping mall? Or maybe you’re going to enjoy a picnic at the park? Whatever it is, we bet you’ll enjoy an outfit that can go from morning until night.  If you’re feeling a little daring, try pairing our compression knee highs with some oxfords and a skirt. You can also wear boots if they’re more your style, or more appropriate for your local weather. Word of advice, if you go with the boots let your knee highs peak out of the top to add a little extra flair.

    Solidea’s Naomi 140 French Lace Sheer Pantyhose are another great choice if you’re looking for a little more coverage and support to last you throughout the day. Available in black or sabbia, and with an ultra-feminine French lace panty built within, these support stockings will keep your legs feeling great around the clock. And you won’t have to sacrifice looks for comfort with these sexy tights. Feel free to pair these pantyhose with pretty much any outfit idea. Great with dresses, skirts, or even under your favorite pair of jeans- the Naomi 140 has you covered.

     

    Bike Ride or Hike with Friends  -

    Enjoying a weekend Valentine’s celebration with your girlfriends? Whether you’re going horseback riding, biking, hiking, or just enjoying a day at the movies Solidea’s active wear is the definite way to go. Try their Silver Wave Leggings or Shaping Capri. They are super comfortable and no one will know that while you’re having a good time, you’re also fighting your cellulite. We recommend wearing them with a longer tunic or under your sweats, as they aren’t completely opaque.   And you never know they may just become your new best friend!
