Belper-based hosier Pretty Pollyis launching a new range for women whose legs are put under pressure as a result of their job.
The Bridgefoot firm’s new collection ‘Legs on the Go’ is designed to make legs feel less tired and achy.
Light compression hosiery helps reduce swelling in the ankles for long periods of standing or sitting. It also helps stimulate blood flow, reducing the risk of deep vein thrombosis and Varicose veins.
A spokesman for the firm said: “With over half of British working women feeling like their legs are put under pressure as a result of their job, Pretty Polly have created a fantastic new hosiery collection to help support and look after the working legs of Britain.”
More than 90 per cent of all Pretty Polly products are designed, developed and manufactured in Belper. The firm which was established in 1919, employs more than 470 people in the town.
