3 Comfortable Compression Stockings for Summer, La Crosse, Wisconsin

Compression stockings improve blood flow, prevent swelling, and prevent dangerous blood clots; they are a vital treatment component for many patients with varicose veins and circulation problems. However, just because they are necessary doesn't mean they can't be comfortable.

Hilton Medical Supply, serving the La Crosse, WI, region for more than 70 years, offers the following suggestions for breathable fabrics that make wearing compression stockings more tolerable. Their selection of socks, cushions, mobility aids, and other medical supplies makes life more comfortable for people with medical issues.

The Top 3 Most Comfortable Compression Stockings for Summer

1.  Cotton

Cotton is ideal for year-round wear. It keeps you warm in winter, but it is a breathable material that helps air keep away perspiration in hot weather. Moreover, it is a naturally hypoallergenic fiber, so it's ideal for people with skin allergies. The material is soft and comfortable, but that doesn't prevent cotton compression stockings from providing exceptional results.

2. Microfiber

Compression stockings in La Crosse, WIMicrofiber socks are thinner and lighter than cotton, so they are ideal to wear with dress shoes. Microfiber is soft, breathable, and very comfortable. It comes in a rainbow of colors to match any wardrobe need, and you can find microfiber compression stockings in sheer and open-toed styles.

3. Silver or Copper Infused Socks

These metals are both naturally deadly to the bacteria that cause socks to become malodorous; so, even after a long, hot day of continued wear, you can feel comfortable taking your shoes off in front of others. Moreover, the thermodynamic properties of silver and copper help keep your legs and feet cool, even in the warmest weather. For extra comfort, choose socks with extra padding in the heel and toes.
