Do you all know about support (aka compression) stockings? What’s the link between this and cosplay you might wonder?
Support stockings are specialized hosiery that apply graduated pressure to your legs and feet and help your body pump the blood back towards the heart. They come in different levels of compression, but unless you have medical problems you only need to use light to moderate compression (15-20 mm-Hg). This level of compression helps relieve pain and swelling in the feet which happen when you stand for long periods of time.
