DVT compression stockings the new pink?

June 12, 2008

Medical compression socks  could become a new fashion rage. 

The Coalition to Prevent DVT is hoping that these socks will raise awareness of DVT in the same way that Pink did for breast cancer.

They don’t look a lot different than leg warmers, well not a lot anyway.

This is where fashion, medicine and marketing can converge to create a winner. Soon you will be throwing out your scrapbooking kits and buying a sock kit to create the funkiest socks on the block.

The formula is simple, a colour, a disease, and an item offering a  solution.

    I have a DVT and am looking for funky compression stockings to wear. Summer is coming and I don’t want to have to wear old lady beige stockings all summer so I was looking for some colored ones when I came across this site…hope i can find some!

    Melissa, have you tried Sigvaris brand? They have compression stockings in fishnets, funky patterns, etc, that come in medical grade level compression. Both knee high and thigh high varieties. You can find info at About Compression Stockings.
