If you have to wear compression hose 24-7 for a month because you had vein surgery in December, and you decide to sport said hose underneath workout shorts (rather than pants) at the Y during lunch, do not be surprised if every. single. person. in the gym gives you strange looks. Except for the grandmother who is rocking a very similar pair (in nude) and tells you that yours are cute and wonders what brand they are. You will then leave the Y feeling like a 72 year old (because they doctor said that's how old your veins are) wearing a sassy leopard cardigan and trying to find the next water aerobics class on the schedule.

Oh you poor thing! How embarrassing! I think the icing on the cake (or the stinky cheese on the pile of garbage?) was the old lady telling you how cute they are and wanting a pair for herself.

Maybe wear pants over them until your doc says you can take them off? :)
