  • Mothers Day Gift Guide

    Mother's Day is almost here! Whether she's a new mom or has a baby on the way, here are some great gifts for new moms.

    Her First Mother's Day

     

     

    Every mom deserves to be pampered. Start her day off with breakfast in bed or a bouquet of flowers. While she may not have time to hit the spa, give her some relaxation essentials to have a spa day at home. For an expecting mother, try a gift set filled with beauty products made specifically for moms-to-be, like lotions or body oils from the Burt's Bees Mama Bee Collection.

    You can't go wrong with jewelry for mother's day. Pick out a personalized charm or necklace like the rhinestone "It's A Boy" personalized charm locket shown above. You can get her jewelry anytime, so choose something that will remind her of this special mother's day.

    The most important gift you can give her for mother's day is health. If she has a baby on the way, wearing maternity leggings will help her take a load off. Leggings that provide light to mild compression help prevent swelling and energize tired, achy legs and feet. So, say goodbye to cankles and super sore feet!

    For a new mom, being comfortable while nursing is a huge priority. The Preggers Support Nursing Tank Top provides support for the abdomen and back to help recover after pregnancy. This tank top is made from a soft material that fits discreetly under clothes. Designed with seamless, form fitting design and a pull down front for nursing. Another great gift for new mothers is this clever 3-1 Maternity Hoodie as shown above. This jacket comes with two removable inserts: one to wear when you are pregnant, and another to wear when you want to carry the baby. This innovative jacket is even designed with two hoods for you and your child!

  • Compression Socks - Your Holiday Gift Giving Guide

    Compression Stockings for HolidaysIt might not be Thanksgiving yet, but the holiday season is certainly upon us. Let's give your friends and family what they really want this year: SOCKS. You might think I'm joking, but I assure you I'm not. Here's my evidence for why compression socks are the hottest gift this holiday season:

    1. A recent NYTimes article pronounced compression socks the newest must-have fashion accessory.

    2. The fashion columns have been talking about men's trouser socks all year long. Here. Here. Here.

    3. Stars like Harrison Ford, Lupita N'yongo, and Mindy Kaling were caught wearing and/or talking about their favorite support socks this year (in public!).

    4. Meb Keflezighi won the Boston Marathon in CEP Compression Socks.

    So, how do you pick the perfect compression sock for that special someone? Here are our suggestions:

    For the Frequent Flyer: Travel socks are a must for long-haul flights - they prevent swelling and relieve tired, aching legs.

    • For that special man in your life, try a Sockwell sock. They're really soft and come in trendy, but subtle patterns.
    • For ladies, we recommend Vim & Vigr Cotton socks in polka dots or argyle for flights. We love how soft these socks are AND the cute patterns.

    For the Athlete: Athletic compression socks reduce fatigue and have been linked to improved performance

    • Triathletes: CEP Sleeves will transition seamlessly from water to land.
    • If your athlete is always complaining about aches and pains, the Sigvaris Recovery Sock will ease their pain.

    For the Workaholic: Standing for long periods of time on the job will wreak havoc on your legs, but compression socks can help prevent swelling, varicose veins and more.

    For the Expecting Mom: Help the mom-to-be by taking some pressure off of her legs with compression tights and leggings.

    Worried about sizing? Use the size charts on the product pages to help find the correct size. We're also happy to offer a really easy return policy with full refunds for all items returned within 30 days.

  • Compression for Pregnancy - Does it Help?

    VIM&VIGR Compression Socks for Expecting Moms

    Swollen ankles and feet, tired legs, varicose veins - these are all common complaints during pregnancy. I can talk all day long about the benefits of wearing compression socks to treat and prevent these symptoms, and you can read about how they help on our site, but the most compelling proof is testimonials from real-live expecting moms. Check out what moms-to-be are saying about how compression helped them:

    Katie at A Mother Thing tested out Sockwell Calf Sleeves:

    "I absolutely LOVED the calf sleeves. I didn’t want to get real socks because I have a history of very sweaty feet, so I wanted something cute that I could wear with my boots OR with sandals. These fit the bill perfectly. I’ve been wearing them A LOT, and when I last saw my doctor, she was really pleased about how much less swollen my legs and feet were. Plus, they just look really cute. Even barefoot they are kind of adorable."

    Liz at The Diabetic Mommy tried out the Preggers line of compression:

    "Let me start by saying these compression socks are so incredibly comfortable...I started the night off swollen but by the time I got home my feet were back to normal. It was amazing. I’ve washed and worn them every day since. No lie.

    Next I had to try the leggings. Those are featured in the last picture. I liked them a lot. Be warned: the first time wearing them can be a struggle. With my swollen legs and pregnant belly in the way I got quite the workout putting them on. Once I did I was in heaven. You could just feel the relief. I have to admit they have worked just as well as the website boasts. I would recommend these to all pregnant ladies, and even diabetics. After wearing these my legs/feet were like new again."

    Holly at Eat Great Be Great also tested out Preggers Leggings in a few different colors:

    "I was lucky enough to try out the leggings in black and the tights in purple. First and foremost, I was impressed with the fashionable options and colors. Typically, I tend to think of compression garments as being ugly and drab, but that’s certainly not the case with the Preggers line. I also liked the fact that the material is very soft and not at all itchy. Both these products were super comfortable, and not only helped to reduce swelling in my legs and ankles, but also provide the right amount of support for my growing belly and achy back. I could seriously wear these everyday and would highly recommend them for all my fellow pregnant mamas."

    Hollie at Mommies With Cents! checked out the VIM & VIGR socks after suffering from varicose veins during her pregnancy:

    "When I was pregnant with my first baby my varicose veins started to get worse.  They didn’t really bother me but they sure didn’t look pretty.  By the time I was pregnant with my third baby they started to cause some discomfort.  Luckily, while still unsightly, the uncomfortableness pretty much vanished after birth.  That being said, I’ve been told by doctors that this will likely change as I age.  Compression socks were recommended to help inhibit swelling, alleviate soreness and reduce or prevent spider and varicose veins in the future. First of all, I have to say that I really enjoy the styles of VIM & VIGR socks.  I’ve always liked wearing knee highs and I like fun patterns too.  These are some of the most comfortable socks and very well made.  They’re the first ones I reach for whenever they’re clean!"
