I don't use these for working out. Though, they do come in handy when I take my daily stroll/walk. I'm a senior citizen with rheumatoid arthritis, some lower leg swelling with pain, and varicose veins. My doctor suggested I wear compression stockings. I don't like the feel of compression socks on my feet, so I thought I would give these a try. What a relief! Although, all of my problems haven't been miraculously cured, my lower legs do feel so much better. I have several pair because I wear them every day, and I rotate colors with whatever outfit I may be wearing. My calves are on the large side 15.5 inches; size L/XL fit well. Also, for a month or so I wasn't wearing them and I was suffering from terrible lower leg cramps. Nothing helped. (You know the usual - water, potassium, etc.) I started wearing these again, THE CRAMPS DISAPPEARED! I won't go without again!
I've been using these (one at a time) while playing golf while recovering from a torn calf muscle. They are comfortable to the point that I don't know that I'm wearing the sleeve, even in 95 degree weather. Compression is more than typical compression socks and probably more supportive of the muscle. So far, so good!
they work as advertised and with their instructions easy to put on
They arrived on time and worked great!
Absolutely love these! Can wear all day at work, no slipping, no bunching, and lots of support.
