Attractive (?!) compression stockings

I have to wear compression stockings all the time due to a. History of DVT, clotting disorder and just dreadful painful legs that have the akin breaking down on them. I'm only 40 and its conditions that commonly effect people 30 years older. The compression stockings are hideous And you can always see them peeping out from under trousers ... Currently use venosan 5002. Does anyone have any recommendations for more sheer ones with just as gd compression, eg at least class II. Many thanks

I managed to get hold of some black ones, so they looked more like black socks peeping from under my trousers. Try amazon.

Many thanks. I have black ones in the winter that are fine because they just look like opaques, it's more for the summer when your trousers ride up a bit and black would look v odd with light coloured/summer trousers. Feel like such a granny hmm

I have some Activa Class 2 open toe socks. They are much less heavy than others I have tried. Lots here.
