Compression Sock, Not Your Granny's Smith, 2014
Compression socks increase blood circulation in the legs and minimize swelling that results from prolonged sedentariness. Until recently, they were sold mainly in pharmacies, made of cotton and nylon, in shades of tan and black. Contemporary designs are both functional and fashionable, employing compression technology and new fibers that mold to the body and are meant to be shown off, rather than concealed.
