Putting on a pair of socks seems so simple that it is hardly worth talking about. Most of us wear socks every day. But when dealing with painful or swollen legs, or the whole body soreness you sometimes get from sustained physical activity, just bending over and pulling the socks on becomes difficult. After all, the socks are made for tightness.
We can suggest a few things to help you with donning the socks.
You can put a bit of either talcum powder or cornstarch on your feet before you try to put the socks on. Somehow the small amount of particulate helps the fabric to travel up your ankles better.
For a better grip, try wearing those rubber texturized dishwashing gloves to put your socks on. Don’t go too thick, with the gloves, because then you will have trouble grabbing anything with your fingers.
Finally, as with any sock, just rolling your compression socks up will make it easier to get them started.
