Anyone have any they recommend? I’ve had bad veins in my legs my whole life. Im not really having swelling at this point, but have noticed more tiny capillaries are busted. I also work 12+ hour shifts as a nurse so it’a hard to rest much during the day. I wear conpression socks to work, but want more. I wouldn’t even care if it’s a full body support, I just want these ugly legs to not get worse!

@GardenRose: I just started wearing TED hose last week (at 36 weeks) because I was getting edema in my ankles after a long day of working. It helped a ton, and I noticed my legs were less tingly all day too. No varicose veins luckily, but it helped a lot with swelling and tingling, so I would give those a try. Just knee-highs.

@GardenRose: Ted stockings?? As a nurse (I am one too!), i’m sure you already know about the ones that are thigh high. Maybe ask your doctor if they have any other recommendations??

I have some knee-high TED. I guess I was seeing if anyone knew much about full ones like the ones at http://www.rupreggers.com or if they’re just tight leggings claiming they help.

I wrapped my leg with an ace bandage so I could control/adjust the amount of pressure.

I just ordered some from http://www.pebbleuk.com – they do leggings as well as tights, and a range of colours. I’ll let you know what they’re like when I get them and can try them out
