Local store Watson launched this Scholl QttO Gradual Compression Stockings for Sleeping about one month ago. It claims that "gradual compression while sleeping, for instant lighter & slimmer looking legs the next day!" OMG, who can resist the word "slimmer looking legs" if you think your legs are not perfect enough. What's why I bought it and I have been wore it for a month.
It's selling at Watson @ SGD46.9, about 34USD. It's quite pricey for a pair of stoking I think. I still decided to give it a try since it's from UK brand Scholl, which is famous on all the footwear products.
The concept of this sleeping stocking is based on compression therapy. It supports the entire leg with low compression levels, which are set in accordance with the UK's pressure standards. Ideal for relief of tired, swollen legs, while achieving toned and slimmer looking legs. My legs always get swollen in the late afternoon and I can feel my shoes become very tight. I don't really believe my legs will get slimmer but I just hoped it can help to relief my swollen legs.
The picture above shows how to wear the stocking. It's just like wearing normal stocking, but toe-less. This design is to release heat during sleep. The ankle area is designed flat, making it suitable for the sleeping position.
Lavender color facilitates sound sleep,it's also my favorite color. The materiel is cotton fabric, I feel very conformable and do not have any itchy or breathless feeling at all. It's a bit tight in the first few days, but I got to used to it after 3,4 days.
See....here are my "elephant legs at night".....
Willing to know the result after wearing them for 23 days?
I measured and recorded my calf circumference in mm everyday before I sleep and in the next morning. I did a excel chart to show the result.
Red line: my left calf size measured at night
Blue: my right calf size measured at night
Purple: my left calf size measured in the next morning
Green: my right calf size measured in the next morning
You can see that my left calf is slightly bigger than my right calf, I didn't know about this before I did the measuring. I think that should be normal as my feet are also different in size.
My calf size generally reduced in the next morning after wearing the stockings to sleep, and I do feel my shoes are not tight in the later afternoon as before. It does really help in relieving swollen legs. It's obvious that my legs are slimmer in the morning, I think it helps to get rid of the water retention,but not like what I wished to reduce the fats. 8)
All in all, it worth trying if you have same problem as mine.
