Ted Hose or Compression Socks? How high?

  1. If you wear compression at work, do you prefer TED hose or compression socks? If TED hose, thigh-high or knee high? I hear thigh-high slips down a lot. I have no medical issues, no edema, but am developing varicosities.

    I had been wearing compression socks but I realize they are all old and worn out. Time to stock up and maybe try TED hose. Open toe or footless with socks seems to be better than closed toe. Thoughts?

    I've been wearing knee high compression socks. I really like these ones (PRO Compression Socks Fit Your Lifestyle – procompression.com). They are a bit expensive, but often have deals on their FB page (like buy 2 get 3 free).
