It's no fun to spend half your workout trying to get on a pair of socks. If you struggle to get your compression socks on quickly and easily, this trick will save you tons of time and effort. Simply follow the easy steps below:
With the sock turned right side out, reach inside and grab the heel of the stocking.
Holding onto the heel of the sock, turn it inside out, stopping at the heel. This creates a "pocket" to stick your foot into.
Slide your foot all the way into the sock, just over the back of the heel. Adjust the toe and heel areas to make sure they are in the right place. Make sure the sock isn't twisted around!
Grab the top of the sock and pull it over your heel and up your leg. The sock should rest about two finger-widths below the crease of your knee.
