Solutions for Swollen Feet and Ankles - plus a Giveaway!

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
A few weeks ago, I returned from a week-long trip to Israel. The day after I returned home, my feet and ankles were incredibly swollen and it was painful for me to walk. I posted to my Facebook page, asking for solutions and got plenty of responses, such as: soaking in Epsom salts, elevating my feet above my head, taking water pills, drinking dandelion tea and water, and eating watermelon, bananas, and pineapples.

Collectively, the most suggested idea was to wear compression socks, which to me evoked images of my grandma wearing white knee socks, and I giggled about how silly I'd look wearing them. Then a friend suggested I check out BrightLife Go socks, so I contacted them and they sent me a pair of their compression socks.
BrightLife Go has the cutest compression socks for women that I have EVER seen! Zensah compression socks are specifically made for travelers. This style is called Zensah Ditsy Flower Travel Socks and they come in navy, hot pink, or brown.
These compression socks increase the circulation on legs, which is very important when you're spending hours sitting in a cramped airplane. They decrease swelling that often occurs on long trips, like my twelve-hour plane ride from Israel. They energize and massage legs, helping to relieve aches and pains.
I put on my new compression socks from BrightLife Go. Actually I made that sound simple; in reality, I struggled to get my new compression socks onto my feet. Swollen feet and ankles don't make anything simple. But I noticed an immediate difference!
These compression socks are very soft, and yet they are just stretchy enough to allow you to put them on. They firmly hug my feet, ankles, and calves. They are very comfortable to wear, even all day, and I could actually feel a difference when I was wearing them. And I really dig the Ditsy Flower pattern!
When I took my compression socks off, my feet were back to normal after just one day of wearing them. I am a huge fan of my BrightLife Go Zensah Ditsy Flower Travel Compression Socks! I will definitely take them with me every time I travel and hopefully prevent the swelling from happening ever again. BrightLife Go also offer styles for men.
Here is a side-by-side comparison shot so you can see the real difference in my feet:

  6. I wear these types of socks all the time ever since I had a blood clot!! The doctors called it a deep vein thrombosis. I was in the hospital for 5 days & then on coumidin for a while. I have a couple pair of TED hose but they go up to my thighs and can get uncomfortable! I LOVE support socks they help me walk without too much pain!! I recommend these even if you don't have health issues!!

  16. A lot of people wear compression socks for long flights, car rides, train rides, and more. If you're sitting in the same position for a long period of time (like on a plane), you should wear compression socks. Most people prefer to wear knee high socks for travel, but if you're most comfortable in thigh highs or stockings, you will get the same protection from swelling and deep vein thrombosis.
