7 Healthy & Fashionable Compression Socks for Nurses to Buy Now

For professionals like nurses who are on their feet all day, comfortable, supportive shoes are essential for any uniform. But compression socks and tights are another useful piece of the wardrobe.

These legwear products typically feature graduated compression, meaning the weave of the threads is tightest around the foot and ankle to help encourage strong circulation. Not only can this help prevent foot swelling, but it also can relieve some general tiredness in the legs.

Below are several women’s compression sock styles that offer plenty of healthy benefits and are fashionable enough to dress up any pair of scrubs.
