I really could do with some advice. I'm due to go out for a fancy ladies launch at the Savoy in a few weeks, and I was planning on wearing a galaxy-type dress and vertiginous shoe boots for the occasion. I now know, however, that I am having my varicose veins lasered five days prior, so high heels are out. And with them, the galaxy dress - that needs heels in my opinion.
Now, the advice I need. What kind of a dress will look fableeous on a 40yo, size 12 who has to wear black opaque compression stockings, and flat shoes or boots? Can't be trousers - compression stockings and trousers = WAY too hot.
Ihatemytoes, it will only be about 3 and a half days after the procedure, hence I still need the compression garments. How did it work out for you btw? How swollen/bruised were you afterwards? Am I panicking needlessly?
Lechatrouge, I love the idea of the brocade 7/8 trousers!
flybynight It worked out fine for me. i had the procedure a week before we were due to drive to Cornwall on holiday. Bad planning on my part! I had hardly any pain or swelling right after the procedure, but about two days into the holiday, I had quite a lot of pain at the top of my thigh where the lazer was inserted. Nurofen sorted that though. I don't have any scars as such, just a few dark spots where the veins were removed, and they're fading every day. So I'd say don't panic. and enjoy the results!
