I recently tried out the new line of compression socks from Therafirm – Ease. Ease has been touted as an extension of the extremely popular Core-Spun line, made with the same technology that allows Core-Spun socks to be super stretchy and easy to pull on. And, they’re not lying. I tried the 20-30 mmhg knee high sock, and despite it’s small appearance coming out of the box, this sock STRETCHES! Using the proper technique to don compression socks (of course!), I was able to pull on this sock in a matter of seconds.
A few features I really like:
- The sock has a nice wide top band that’s even stretchier than the rest of the sock, which means it wasn’t cutting into my skin all day long AND it stayed in place.
- The sock comes in Petite and Long sizes – I have a pretty long leg and sometimes find one-length-fits-all products won’t fit my long calf. The Medium Long fit perfectly. I believe the same will go for petite customers who need something a bit shorter than the standard size.
- I love the balloon toe – having slightly larger feet than the average lady, I really appreciate a balloon toe that doesn’t put pressure on my toes
- Durable heel pocket that provides a nearly custom fit around the foot
The only real draw back I found with the knee high socks was a lack of texture. These socks are opaque and smooth. The texture will be great as thigh highs and pantyhose, though, and I’ll definitely wear these socks under boots. It’s just my personal preference for trouser socks to have a bit of a pattern or ribbing in the fabric.
A review we received from a customer in Florida echoes some of my thoughts:
“These are so comfortable right out of the package! No ankle crinkles or strangling behind my knees. I’m 5 ft. 180 lbs and ordered the medium short. I’m ordering more pairs right now!”
So – if you’re tired of fighting to get your compression socks, thigh highs or pantyhose on, I definitely recommend trying Ease.
