Compression socks have been my go to for avoiding swollen legs and lessening the possibility of blood clots on long flights, but I’m not a fan of how they look or feel. That’s why I like the RejuvaWear leggings, which look like normal leggings but have 15-20 mmHg of compression. They have side panels that aren’t compression, so nothing important gets squished. There’s also an extra wide waistband which is comfortable when sitting for long periods.
RejuvaWear Leggings Review
How RejuvaWear Leggings Rate:
- Usefulness: 10/10. Leggings are an essential part of my outfit anytime I have to fly somewhere. They’re comfortable (but still look presentable), and keep you warm on a cold flight (but can be easily ditched once you get to a hot weather destination, assuming you’re pairing them with a dress). I like that these offer the compression I like for long flights, but look like normal clothes.
- Value: 5/10. $70 is a lot to pay for leggings, even if they are compression. If you can snag them at the sale price, it’s definitely a better deal.
- Durability: 10/10. These are sturdier and more opaque than most leggings.
- Cool Factor: 10/10. The leggings come in different colors, and look like regular leggings.
Final Verdict: If you fly often, or have a job where you have to stand a lot (and suffer from leg swelling and fatigue), these leggings would be a beneficial upgrade for your wardrobe.
