While I was pregnant with our older son, we went to Iceland and Amsterdam on a babymoon. Since I was having some swelling issues (sexy, I know!) my OB suggested I wear these socks to prevent my veins from exploding mid-air, or something like that.
G actually balked a little when I said I was tossing these. He argued that knee-highs are knee-highs, and they're always hot. I was like, "Okay, but these are DVT socks from CVS."
