Tired and aching legs can occur at any time in our lives, whatever our job and whether we have an active lifestyle or not. It’s important to know how our Scholl Light Legs™ compression tights can reenergise your legs and allow you to be more active for longer. The name might not sound glamorous, but they have the outward appearance of regular tights while providing a brilliant benefit to your legs which make them a perfect addition to your wardrobe. Whether you decide to wear them to work or you are looking for additional health support, find out all the information you need in our Light Legs™ Compression Tights 101 guide.
How do compression tights work?
If you sit or stand for too long, whether that’s at work or on a long-haul flight, the lack of movement in your legs can cause blood to pool around the ankles instead of circulating around the body. Compression hosiery is designed to apply pressure to the veins and muscles in your lower legs, with the pressure gradually lowering as it goes up the leg. Our Fibre Firm™ technology provides gradual compression from the ankle all the way up the leg (10 mmHg at the ankle, 5 mmHg at the calf and 3.5 mmHg at the thigh). This constant pressure supports the movement of your calf muscle and the veins and valves within, which encourages blood flow and circulation to other parts of the body, therefore, reducing swelling and pain the lower legs might experience.
Why wear Light Legs™ compression tights?
We have ensured the quality and comfort of our Scholl Light Legs™ compression
tights in a few ways. The “Ladder Lock technology” used in our Light Legs™ compression tights makes them less prone to ladders, while the 3D knit structure helps maintain their shape wash after wash. This structure also gives them their super soft feel meaning that they are comfortable and easy to wear all day long. Wearing these tights throughout the day will make you feel more energised and give you that Light Leg feeling, which is great for the busy people amongst us who can spend longer on their feet and fit more into their days! Although these tights have a tighter fit than regular tights, this offers the extra support for your legs and provides a great shapely fit giving your legs a toned and beautiful appearance.
Find your style
Although there are health reasons for wearing compression hosiery, you can also wear them simply for the comfort and style they provide your legs. The tights provide the appearance of toned and beautiful legs and their 3D knit structure means they are super soft and comfortable to wear all day long. Offering both black and nude styles means our compression tights are suited to every outfit across all the seasons. Tights aren’t a typical summer wardrobe staple, but if you need to boost your circulation, our nude styles in a lower denier or 20 are the ultimate summer solution.
Choosing the right size is just as important as finding the right style as it can impact the feel and look of your tights. The compression tights need to apply enough pressure to help prevent against tired achy legs, but not be so tight that they create discomfort. Look at our size guide to ensure you are buying the right size for you.
