On September 22, 1982, the United States began celebrating American Business Women’s Day. The recognition was established by Congress to honor and reflect upon the accomplishments and contributions of women in the work force, as well as women business owners.
In the 1940s, when a large part of the American work force was called upon to serve in the military during World War II, America’s women took up the slack in the workplace. Although, many of these women chose to return home at the end of the war, the numbers of women in the work force have steadily increased since then. According to the US Department of Labor, American women make up 47% of today’s labor force with just under 59% of women ages 16 and over were either employed or looking for work.
Therafirm would like to salute career women this American Business Women’s Day on September 22.

Meet TheraSport! TheraSport is our new brand of athletic compression performance and recovery socks. TheraSport athletic socks are engineered to improve circulation and provide more energy for greater endurance, enhanced performance and a speedy recovery.
While the medical benefits of compression have been known for some time, the benefits of compression for athletes have generated a lot of attention recently. Athletes that wear athletic compression garments may experience less delayed onset muscle soreness, less fatigue, improved performance, less edema post-competition and faster recovery. Gradient compression, which is compression that is greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases as it moves toward the knee, is known to improve blood flow from the ankle to the heart. This increased blood flow improves oxygenation and enhances athletic performance. Although common in the medical world, gradient compression is virtually unknown in athletic compression – as most athletic compression on the market is the more basic all over compression.
TheraSport Athletic Performance and Recovery Socks from TheraSport are breaking the athletic compression mold. Not only do they offer the wearer the true gradient athletic compression, but they also have a number of other benefits that make them ideal for today’s most serious professional and amateur athletes or anyone who prefers a sports style sock.
TheraSport socks are made with a super soft and lightweight material for exceptional comfort. A comfortable band provides a non-binding grip to help the socks stay up. High tech, moisture wicking yarns, as well as breathable mesh paneling and moisture-wicking fibers keep feet cool and odor under control. A unique “Y” heel stitching helps to keep socks in place. Additional Achilles and foot protection provide greater support and stabilization. Finally, a lightweight cushioning helps to absorb shock and protect feet during athletic activity.

Nothing sounds worse to compression wearers than the idea of wearing their compression garments during the hot summer months. Thankfully, Therafirm has several great options that make wearing compression not so bad – or perhaps even comfortably cool. And since many people wear compression due to medical necessity, this is truly good news indeed!
So, what do we have? First things first – Therafirm has compression garments in many different lengths and styles. If your doctor gives you the okay, you can opt for a shorter style than you’re used to – like thigh highs instead of waist highs or knee highs instead of thigh highs. There is even an anklet available. The less skin that is covered, the easier it is to stay cool.
Another great option for keeping cool is our open toe and footless styles. Your legs might have to be covered, but at least your feet or toes can air out. Waist high, thigh high and knee high lengths are all available in open toe styles. TherafirmLight styles in 10-15mmHg compression include footless tights and leggings. (Note: Footless is not recommended if you have swelling in your feet. Check with a doctor before choosing footless as an option.)
But, truly the best option for beating the heat while wearing your compression, is trying our Ease or Core-Spun brands. Both have properties that are designed to keep you comfortably cool.
Ease by Therafirm compression legwear is made of super soft and more importantly breathable materials. The more breathable yarns help to keep you cool all day. Ease products also contain CoolMax® fibers which are moisture wicking keeping the garments dry and comfortable.
Core-Spun by Therafirm is our casual line of compression legwear. Don’t let looks deceive you on these socks. The soft thickness of the sock material may make your feet sweat just looking at them, but they are specially designed to keep you cool. Core-Spun socks are made with Micro-Cool® and superior moisture wicking fibers, which pull moisture off the skin and to the outside of the garment where it dries.
We all know the importance of following doctors’ orders to maintain good health. If your physician recommends compression legwear, look to Therafirm for compression legwear designed to keep you cool. Either that, or make plans to spend the summer touring Alaska!

All Therafirm products are cool and comfortable? We uses a Micro-Cool Process that helps wick moisture away from the skin so it evaporates faster. This ensures a cool, comfortable feeling in the summer and a warm, cozy feeling in the winter. We also make sure to use the most comfortable waist bands for our pantyhose and tight and the most comfortable band for our knee highs, thigh highs and trouser socks. Comfort is king after all.
