With the amount of standing required of a flight attendant, compression wear can be a valuable part of their working wardrobe. But flight attendants face even more threats to their health due to the nature of their job.
In addition to the long periods of standing, the changes in air pressure during take offs and landings also contribute to a higher than average risk of developing deep vein thrombosis.
It means flight attendants need more than regular compression wear. In fact, many flight attendants get a prescription from their doctors for medical-grade compression hosiery.
A Comfortable Option for Flight Attendants
Fortunately for flight attendants, and everyone who spends extended periods of time on their feet, there are options for their compression wear. One of them is shapewear, including Mass & Slim Shorts, Leggings and Belts.
In addition to providing the support that can help flight attendants reduce their risk of deep vein thrombosis, shapewear delivers a number of other health benefits that don’t come from regular compression wear.
Helps to Prevent Varicose Veins
Mass & Slim’s shapewear is infused with hundreds of tiny ceramic beads that gently massage the skin as you move. The massaging action helps to improve blood flow to reduce the risk of the pooling that produces varicose veins.
Reduces the Appearance of Cellulite
In addition to all its other benefits, Mass & Slim’s breathable fabric make it very comfortable to wear all day, every day.
