Giveaway - two sets of Therafirm Preggers goodies!



I think it's time for another giveaway...don't you?!

The Prizes
Two (yes, two!) lucky winners will each receive a pair of pantyhose and pair of trouser socks from Therafirm's new Preggers line:


The Goodies
Here's what Therafirm has to say about their products:
Preggers is a new maternity compression product line. Compression during maternity helps to energize tired and achy legs and help reduce and prevent swelling. With our customer's help, we are trying to build a brand that meets all their needs. Individuals will be able to help chose our logo, packaging, colors, and styles. Our line will consist of pantyhose, tights, footless tights, a belly band, post partum compression garments and anything else our customers strongly want. We love the idea of our line being shaped by future moms for future moms.


And here's what our awesome Chocosaur had to add after reviewing them:
When I first started complaining of swelling during my pregnancy, I had a few friends suggest that I try some compression hose.  My swelling was still pretty mild, and it was the middle of the summer here so I wasn't too keen on trying them.  Fast forward to the third trimester when the swelling really started to hit me... I was asked to try out the products made by Therafirm, so I thought "Hey, why not? I've got nothing to lose."

Honestly, I was really skeptical as to whether or not some socks or pantyhose could really make any kind of difference with my swelling.  How could a piece of hosiery really reduce the swelling?  Well, the answer actually lies in something called gradient compression.  This type of technology applies greater pressure at the bottom near your ankles and gradually decreases as it moves up.  This increases blood flow in your legs, thereby decreasing the edema or swelling.

I put the trouser socks on as I was getting for work one morning.  By the time I was ready to walk out the door (about 30 minutes), I went to slip my shoes on and I was shocked to see that my shoes weren't so tight anymore! They actually fit more or less the same as they did before I was pregnant! I was astounded at what a difference there was in such a short period of time.

So, if you're on the fence about trying compression hosiery, I'd suggest you give it a try... your feet will thank you!
