My luggage is also full of compression wear. I packed a lot, and I used almost all of it. I thought about not bringing much… but then I remembered that I probably wouldn’t want to spend time and energy on vacation hand washing hose every night. Thankfully even compression athletic leggings don’t take up much space or weight in luggage.
Even if I don’t need thigh-high squeezers at home, when I’m traveling the stress and additional demands of travel mean that I sometimes really have to just flail about putting the things on and lump it (literally, because on a bad flare day the pressure might bring about a rash). But it’s worth it. The difference in between watching a movie or counting the soggy popcorn kernels on the floor of the theater is a pair of boa-constrictor tight hose in a stylish (*not*) nude.
