I finally got compression socks to wear, because I've had issues with blood pooling in my legs. I'm talking about my feet being red and purple with clearly bulging veins after just a couple minutes of standing. And I'm really glad that I got them, but I also hate them because there's a freaking seam on the toes. I wish sensory issues would just let me have this 😩

    I wore a knee brace with it today while I was at work, and I'm kind of regretting it now. I've been hurting my knee by hyperextending it while I walk and resting all of my weight on it, so I've been using the knee brace to help control that. The only downside is that I had to wear the brace over my jeans, so I had to make sure the straps were tight. And the lower strap went directly over top of the compression sock. The toes didn't bother me as much as having two tight things on my leg dead

    Hi. They make compression socks that are designed for yoga! They are toeless socks, they stop right before your toes. So your toes are free to get air and not have seams pressed against them! Might be worth checking out, I love mine because I hate having stuff touch my toes

    I 100% recommend the company notyourgrandma as they have seamless compression socks with really cool patterns, I absolutely adore mine!

    Definitely try some different ones! I've had some I hate and some that are great. I also like compression leggings, I wear them with the socks on days I'm traveling or walking a lot

    I found compression leggings were just as effective and there’s no toe seams. 🤗
