A close up of my #compressionstockings from @rejuvahealth (sadly I don't think they make these particuar ones anymore) Who says compressionwear has to be dull or nannaish (sorry nannas of the world I think you should have groovy compression stockings too). These are 20-30mmHg so reasonable compression. You do have to search but there are fashionable options avaliable. And if you have to wear them everyday a bit of fashion helps. Even Freyja can't take her eyes off them.

  • whentaniatalksThese look gorgeous! I'm so glad you've found something that works & looks good! I've been nervous to try compression stockings as my PoTS nurse has told me that, because they're tight (which they need to be to work) they can increase the risk of dislocations & subluxations in EDS patients, when putting them on. Xx
  • michelle_rogerIts a fine line @whentaniatalks I have days when my fingers and wrists sublax so I can't put them on. But when I can they make such a difference to pooling and my endurance. There are donning tools which can help and donning gloves. I also recommend watching some of the online videos for putting them on, most of the major brands have instructional videos. Or if you have a medical supply store near you they can often walk you through the process. It does depend on how badly you sublax or dislocate though.
  • tamzentempleBrilliant pic ❤️👏🏻 gorgeous legs modelling those stockings
  • michelle_rogerThanks @tamzentemple *blushing a little*
  • whentaniatalksFantastic, thank you so much! I'll definitely look into this. There are quite a few medical supply stores near me, but they all have minimal & basic products. One type of adaptive cutlery, one type of perching stool, etc. The Internet has become my best friend for finding equipment & my online spoonie friends the best advisors. Xx
  • michelle_rogerI've written a fair bit about compression stockings on my blog if you want to check it out @whentaniatalks (link in my profile) just search compression stockings in the search bar.
  • whentaniatalksBrilliant, thank you! Xx
  • winnipegstyleThey look great. Never would have guessed they were compression stocking. ☺
  • michelle_rogerThere are some great ones around @winnipegstyle but you do have to search and they can be more expensive (although these are a mid price range pair) I have a few posts over on my blog for fashionable compression brands and where to source them.
