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
“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.
