As is often the case, what is best for you doesn't always taste or look great.
Medical compression stockings are a great reminder that this is so-often coming in frumpy designs of white or beige, many a fashionable woman has spurned this kind of hosiery even if the benefits and effects are great . But with Orthopaedic Stockings , this fashion faux pas may now be a thing of the past.
Kelsey Minarik's company comes up with fashion forward as well as flattering classic support stockings from sizes small to extra large. The 24-year-old was once diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis (a blood clot in one of her legs). She has since recovered but was strongly advised by her doctor to wear thigh high support stockings in order to maintain good circulation and quality leg health.
That by itself wasn't so bad until Minarik found the stocking options to be quite limited. Their lack of aesthetic selections was limited to the aforementioned lacklustre colours and patterns. That's when she decided to start to make Orthopaedic Stockings .
"Our products offer ideal support solutions for women who may refuse to otherwise wear such support hosiery for fear of its frumpy appearance. We've also found that our new playful prints, which are proprietary, and have never been seen before on compression hosiery, have quickly made us a hit beyond those who wear support stockings for medical reasons," exclaims Minarik.
Minarik, a lifelong athlete, first experienced a pinching pain on the plane to a vacation with a friend. She thought it was just a sprain or a normal muscle pain and proceeded to walk and tour the city-walking that soon turned to hobbling.
As soon as she got home, she had her family physician take a look at the 5-day-old swelling. Her doctor, in turn, ordered her immediately sent her to the ER where it was found that she had a blood clot the length of her calf. Through medication and compression hose, Minarik eventually recovered and in time.
