Compression hosiery has often been recommended to help improve circulation, energize tired, achy legs and to help reduce and prevent swelling. True gradient compression hosiery delivers a controlled amount of pressure greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking promoting better blood flow. With experience of making compression hosiery for more than 50 years, Therafirm continues to innovate compression garments. While compression stockings have been around for decades, THERAFIRM compression hosiery products are not "your grandmaā€™s compression stockings". They are made with the most beautiful and comfortable fibers out in the fashion industry today. Therafirm uses advanced technologies for developing products that are fashionable and comfortable while delivering the health benefits women need. By offering a wide range of advantages including updated shades, sheer yarns and knit pattern texture options, women can feel good about wearing compression hosiery. Therafirm products are 100% made in the USA in their own manufacturing facilities.
