Peachtree City, Ga. (August, 13 2010) ? Heads will turn this fall as SIGVARIS, the global leader in fashionable compression therapy, introduces its newest product, Jewel. In what has quickly been coined ?fashionable relief for legs,? Jewel graduated support hosiery will help women across the United States improve their leg health as these stockings not only look stylish, but also provide relief from heavy, fatigued and tired legs. Jewel, a knee-high dress stocking, features a chic diamond pattern that looks perfect with any office or dress wear and is available in dark navy, mocha and black. ?Women that start wearing graduated compression stockings when they first notice circulation problems, such as swelling in the feet or heaviness in the legs, may be able to help prevent more serious problems such as varicose veins later on,? says Judith Brannan, Education Manager for SIGVARIS North America. ?This product is perfect for women who travel and expectant mothers. Also, women who work in occupations where they stand or sit for prolonged periods of time throughout the day will certainly benefit from wearing Jewel.? Jewel is available in 15-20mmHg graduated compression and combines all-day comfort with durability. This product is easy to don and feels incredibly soft against the skin ? thanks to special double-covered inlay yarns. ?We felt that August was the ideal month to launch Jewel because it's the perfect product for professional people including school teachers returning to the classroom who are on their feet all day,? says Jason Kern, product manager for North America. Whether the day takes a woman on a plane, in a classroom, to the office, or out on town, Jewel graduated support hosiery will keep legs both fashionable and healthy. Jewel provides excellent breathability and moisture management, making it the perfect product to wear year-round. For style savvy women, SIGVARIS' Jewel is a perfect fit! Not even a woman's closest friends will be able to tell that her fashionable knee-highs are magically working behind the scenes to keep her legs healthy, not that she'll mind sharing her secret.
