Compression socks aren’t exactly known for being stylish, but that’s beside the point. When you’re traveling for more than four hours at a time — be it by plane, train, or car — you’re at a higher risk of developing a blood clot, and everyone knows that this is a health no-no. So wearing a pair of kinda-ugly socks to reduce this risk? Sure. But it’s 2018, and non-ugly compression socks exist now.
Item m6 is here to transform your idea of compression socks with their line of fashion tights, leggings, shapewear, and socks that feature compression technology — meaning, yes, you can get in on the lasting effects of wearing compression legwear while wearing, say, a pair of simple black tights (perfect for those business trips that have you hopping straight off the plane and into a meeting).
From knee-high socks to nearly invisible tights, scroll through for our picks of Item m6 compression legwear.
