To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've got hEDS and POTS; these didn't quite fit the bill for me. Pros: they had very high level of compression, comparable to my 20-30 mmhg tights, I'd say. I also liked the color, and they were nice and opaque. Cons: the swirly design intended to stabilize joints had seams that were a little too rough for me. They kinda dug into my leg in weird ways. I bet these would work for less curvy body types and/or less sensitive skin
These work great! I bought a pair to try out via recommendation, and as soon as i put them on my puppy ripped a small hole in the knee- so just a warning, these are fragile, as other comments have said. HOWEVER, that hole hasn’t spread or run at all and it’s been a few weeks which is great! I’m very impressed by that. As for the compression, these SERIOUSLY work. They’re not the most comfortable to sit in because of it, and it takes some getting used to, but i work on my feet all day and they are AMAZING. Before using these, i could barely stand for 5 hours, but with them I’m working 10 and 11 hour shifts and barely notice any soreness. I have joint hypermobility issues in my hips and knees, and i was blown away by how well these tights supported my joints! I no longer have to worry about subluxing anything if i’m wearing them. After just a few days of wearing my first pair, i bought a second so that i can wear them every day for work.
Overall, I ADORE these and recommend to anyone who has to stand or walk for long periods of time, especially if you have joint problems.
These are great. There is no down side to them other than the little extra time it takes to line up the knee support. These last a really long time. This is my second pair and the first lasted years. They aren’t expensive compared to constantly replacing less effective but cheaper running tights.
I expected the strong compression on my legs but didn't realize the compression around the girth would be even stronger. There is no stretch or give in the waistband and there is no gusset in the crotch like you would expect the women's to have.
