Subject: Re: Compression Socks

I have had to wear both prescription support hose in the past and now off the shelf/in stock hose that have light to medium compression. The lingerie store that I ordered the custom hose through (it's a trip being measured for these!) also carried the off the shelf variety. You want a specialty lingerie store; not the Victoria's Secret ilk, but the type that carries mastectomy products. You could also check businesses that sell orthopedic braces. Here in the States some drugstores, usually not chain ones, carry medical supplies and might have a stock of support/compression hose. Doctor's orders for me to wear them on the plane, even now.
