The Fytto Style Compressions Socks are the best product for those who wish for something casual. They offer nude coloring for easy concealment, comfortable padded soles, extra room for toes, and a specially designed elastic band resistant to dropping down over the course of the day and guaranteed not to cause any skin irritation. They have 15-20mmHg gradient compression, which puts it in the light category and thus makes it perfect for everyday wear.
As mentioned above, these socks are in the light category, thus you won’t see mind blowing results that eliminate all of your varicose veins. You can, however, expect a serious reduction in foot swelling, ankle swelling, and leg pains/tiredness. Many customers express satisfaction with results when used for travel and at desk jobs. The level of compression provided increases in restrictiveness from the ankle up and will effectively prevent blood from pooling in the lower legs and thus provide all of the aforementioned benefits.
In terms of style, the Fytto Style socks are sleek and appealing. They come in black, brown, burgundy, and nude to apply to a variety of situations. Many customers have expressed satisfaction with the quality of the nude color. Personally, I think they look great and pair well with a variety of woman’s business casual dress. They are also quite thin, which means you won’t be weighed down by your socks throughout the day; they are more like pantyhose than true socks. Lastly, they are machine washable, making them easy to take care of and clean.
When it comes to sizing, most customers express a great fit, and it’s hard to say why those who experience difficulties do so because measurements are rarely given. Be safe and follow the sizing guide given, which is size small for US shoe sizes 5-6, medium for US shoe sizes 6.5-8.5, and large for US shoe sizes over 9 (although you may want to take into account your calf size since that will determine how much compression you feel). A lot of reviews indicate excellent customer service on the part of Fytto, which should help ease any worries.
Durability is important to take into account when you’re looking at compression socks. After all, you wouldn’t want to spend money on one pair of socks only to have them wear out after a couple of uses. The reinforced elastic in the Fytto brand products does increase durability and many customers report successfully wearing these for a long time. Some customers prefer hand washing to machine washing; such a choice may help increase life. As with any product, you want to make sure you’re taking care of it. The socks are more like pantyhose and thus a little more fragile. You should wear shoes that won’t tear and you shouldn’t be running around all day if you expect them to last. Another strategy that many people prefer is to have many pairs, one for each day of the week. That way, you’re never wearing the pair for more than one day at a time.
What Sets Them Apart
Fytto’s edge up on the competition: most compression socks come in unisex sizing, which often creates problems for women. These socks are created specifically for women and thus provide a better fit and better style for women who want compression socks that don’t stick out like a sore thumb.
Still Not Certain?
If you’re not sure whether or not these are the socks for you, consider the following breakdown:
Fytto Style Compression Socks are Great If
- You’re looking for something discrete to wear every day at work (that doesn’t involve heavy amounts of foot stress) and at home
- You don’t require heavier compression than the 15-20mmHg category
The 15-20mmHG category helps reduce swelling and leg pain, but does not offer further medical benefits such as eliminating varicose veins
- You feel like your tired legs could benefit from a bit of restriction, but you don’t want to sacrifice style and comfort to do so
- The knee-high height is suitable to your needs
Fytto Syle Compress Socks Might Not Be for You If
- You desire heavier duty socks for athletic purposes
- You find any sort of tightness uncomfortable
- You aren’t willing to spend double digits on a pair of socks
- You consider a knee-high length either too long or too short
- You want a really tight compression
The Bottom Line
Fytto compression socks don’t sacrifice comfort for effectiveness or style, making them a great all-around package. They are not intended for athletic use and are thus limited in that capacity. So, if you’re looking for a pair of unobtrusive socks that will still deliver results to reduce swelling in your feet and ankles and alleviate leg pain and tiredness, then these socks are a great option.
