When you spend long hours on your feet as a hair stylist, you need compression that works as hard as you do to relieve achy, tired legs.
When I began wearing compression in 2008, I had to wear a stocking that covered my full leg due to the location of my DVT. Since it extended up my calf to behind my knee, a sock didn’t provide enough length to manage the symptoms I was experiencing. At the time, thigh highs & pantyhose were my only option – two hosiery styles I didn’t often wear.
Cooling air, shorter days, and the arrival of holiday decor: signals of fall’s arrival and the weather changes that accompany it. With this change in weather, come changes in wardrobe. For compression wearers, this sparks a different set of questions than those wearers consider in warmer months.
When designing our footless legging, I focused on 3 main features: - A top like a true legging (no pantyhose control tops with feet cut off) - Maximum opacity so you can wear & pair with tops other than dresses - An ultra wide, yoga-pant-inspired tummy band.
After over 10 months of research, development, and countless prototype iterations, we finally had a version I loved & which I thought other wearers like me would love too. We launched it fall 2012 and they’ve been a best-seller since!
