    Where to buy compression socks/stockings for air travel?

    Hello everyone,

    I am almost 6 months pregnant and need to travel in the coming weeks.
    I have been reading that compression socks/stockings are good while traveling by air.
    I am not sure where to buy them from and which of the brands are good in Hong Kong? Any suggestions and recommendations?

    Thanks,
    vinkap

    You can get them at larger Mannings and Watsons, at Fanda in Central and numerous other smaller pharmacies (but not all of them) in HK. As long as the fit is correct I'd guess one brand is as good as the next. They aren't attaractive (although I did prefer the black color as they can look kind of like leggings) but they do the job.

    I went to the Matilda office in Central, there is a woman there who take your measurements so you are assured a proper fit and you can buy them there. If you cannot find the number call Matilda at the Peak and they can direct you to the right place.

    I bought mine from the Watsons store at the airport.
