Question from Bonnie Johnson

Hi Debra,

I was just told by my cardiologist that I need to start wearing compression hose to help with a heart issue. Are there any safe ones? Cotton? I have seen some but they are nylon and spandex. Not sure what to do.

Debra’s Answer

There IS cotton compression hose. Here’s one example:

There are also cotton hose liners specifically to wear inside compression hose for comfort.

They are easy to find online

Just search on “cotton compression hose and websites will come up that sell both.
