Why wear compression socks?

About four years ago, I noticed that my ankles had swelled terribly after a long flight from Washington, D.C. to Buenos Aires, Argentina. More recently, I have observed some swelling after flights as short as one hour (thank you middle age, you make everything so glamorous!).

Here are the black Coolover compression socks I wore on my trip to California. I had great results. They were comfy, and I had no ankle swelling.
Comfy compression socks for our flight to CA. But be kind to your seat mates and keep your shoes on.

So, as we were about to board a plane from D.C. to California last week, I slipped on a pair of these compression socks (which, despite their name, are in fact quite comfortable). Lo and behold, no swelling! I will definitely be wearing my compression sock on all my flights from now on.
