Just Comfort hosiery line sets new standards in comfort

July 16, 2009 - United States Of America

National, a leading retailer of ladies’ clothing and hosiery, announces a new line of compression hosiery – Just Comfort – the culmination of extensive research “that sets new standards of comfort and support.”

"Just Comfort hosiery was designed with our diverse customers in mind,” said Lynda Smith Swann, National president. Just Comfort hosiery offers three levels of compression (mild: 8-15 mmHg, moderate: 15-20 mmHg, and firm: 20-30 mmHg) and five styles (knee highs, panty hose, thigh highs, over the knee, and socks) in a wide range of sizes and colors.

”It is designed to look and fit like fashion hosiery with its silky finish and non-run feature, while offering the preventive benefits of compression therapy,” Mrs. Swann noted. A unique feature this line brings is the reciprocated heel-and-toe pockets that allow the hosiery to be worn with less constriction in your feet.

In addition, she continued, "Just Comfort stands apart from the competition with its antibacterial finish, moisture-wicking ability, and three compression levels at pacesetting, affordable prices.”

In the medical community, compression hosiery is known to provide relief for those who suffer from a variety of leg problems and circulation-related conditions, including aching, tired, heavy legs; varicose veins; and spider veins that are caused by long periods of standing (e.g., health care professionals, teachers, beauticians, wait staff and restaurant professionals, factory employees, and sales/retail associates) or sitting (e.g., telecommunication specialists, drivers, and business professionals).

National recommends that you consult with your doctor before wearing compression stockings above 30 mmHg, if you have arterial circulation problems, or if you intend to use compression stockings as a treatment and preventative for diabetics from developing venous or arterial ulcers in their lower legs.

National was founded in Lexington, North Carolina, in the early 1950s by Eddie Smith, a visionary who grew his small hosiery company by using a then “new-fangled” mail order concept.

More than 50 years, 150 co-workers, and, millions of satisfied customers later - and now led by Smith’s daughter, Lynda Smith Swann – this former small hosiery company has grown to a flourishing catalog and online retailer, offering a full line of apparel for the mature woman, including hosiery, lingerie, sleepwear and loungers, tops and pants, footwear and healthcare.
