Hatch, the leading maternity brand beloved by mommas-to-be, has launched its latest at-home essential. The Hatch Compression Sock and the Swell Relief Duo were created to help soothe swollen feet and ankles so you can stay on your toes all day long.

The Compression Sock Bundle includes two pairs — one black and one white, both with a chic pink detailing. And for those days when you need a little extra help, the Swell Relief Duo kit includes Hatch’s cult-favorite Down, Girl Cooling Creme and a set of two compression socks. According to WhatToExpect, "swollen feet and ankles may start around week 27 — or month 7 — of pregnancy," explaining that "one way to help ease both symptoms (or at least stop them from becoming worse) is to slip on a pair of maternity compression socks at the start of the day."

In addition to being a key element of maternity wear, compression socks also play an important role in our work-from-home life. As most of us are continuing to spend all of this newfound time at home, our physical activity reduces, which means less blood is flowing to our muscles.

Experts at Sugar Free Sox have explained that “anyone with an occupation that requires sitting at a desk for multiple hours a day can fight the negative effects of prolonged sitting by wearing compression socks. In addition to getting up and moving around every 30 minutes, compression socks can help relieve some of the swelling and aches in your lower body.”

Essentially, compression socks work to maximize circulation while minimizing swelling. With so many different brands on the markets at all different price points, we’ve rounded up top-rated options for every budget.

One of our favorite brands for a wide range of compression socks is Comrad. The sock brand creates a slew of different styles that are made for all-day energy, support and comfort. These merino wool socks are naturally antimicrobial and feature a moisture-wicking fabric.

Dr. Motion offers a slew of compression socks that come in fun and quirky prints. We like this classic black pair because of the graduated compression to help circulation.


Shop: McDavid Rebound Compression Socks, $39.99

Although these McDavid socks are more on the costly side, they are designed from specialty yarns made with seaweed and zinc to help increase blood flow post-exertion for a faster recovery.

Shop: Adidas Superlite Low Cut Compression Socks (6-Pack), $15 (Orig. $20)

These ankle-length socks by Adidas are perfect for someone looking to focus on their feet rather than their upper leg. These socks feature elastic arch support to reduce fatigue. Plus, they’re designed with odor-resistant technology.

Shop: Nordstrom Compression Trouser Socks, $15

For a more refined approach to compression socks, these ones from Nordstrom are your best bet. With nearly 100 reviews from shoppers, one enthused customer says, “These are great if you’re on your feet all day. They don’t feel too restrictive, but they still have enough support/compression you can feel. I would recommend them if you work in the medical field or if you use a Varidesk, or if you move around your house a lot.”
