Swollen feet!

So my feet have been getting swollen especially during work since I stand all day at the pharmacy. So I bought compression socks about a week and a half ago and they have been helping out tons, but i have a few pairs of maternity khaki capris and I like to wear them to work so I don't just have to wear pants. Well with the compression socks (they're black) i have to wear pants and it makes my legs so hot. So today i tried to wear my capris and wear the compression socks but role them down so they looked like ankle socks it didn't look to bad. Well it kept the swelling down in my ankles and feet, but not my legs of course so when i took off the socks it looked really funny.
So my advice to those that are swelling because of the heat or because they are pregnant is don't role down your compression socks just to be able to wear capris. I'm going to go buy nude colored socks!!

  3. The medium compression socks aren't too pricey they are between 10 and 15 dollars, but ya the high compression socks were really pricey.
