Support Cute Calves with Lily Trotters + Giveaway!

support cute calves with lily trottersAs you all know, since I talk about it all of the time, I have meaty calves. Its a great and terrible thing that prevents me from wearing normal compression socks and sleeves. These babies like to stop compression sleeves half way up my leg and laugh at me. Now let’s move on the next problem. Calf compression socks and sleeves do come in cute colors but nothing that makes them any different than others. Well look out world because Lily Trotters is here to save the day!

A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to help fund the first manufacturing of Lily Trotters and I couldn’t be more excited! Finally an answer to having multiple options of CUTE compression socks. Lilly Trotters are made from the finest micro nylon and currently are available in 5 different designs for you to preorder. They are not only antimicrobial and moisture wicking but they also consistently deliver 15-20 mmHg compression when wearing them. (If you are unaware of the benefits of compression socks and sleeves, please read this post to learn more.)

LTgiveaway“I received a pair to put to the test myself and I could not be more in love with them. Not only are they fashionably adorable, THEY FIT MY CALVES. Yes, you read that right, they fit my big ole meaty calves! These bad boys kept my calves compressed and worked like a charm. I would recommend them for any activity from running to traveling to sitting at a desk all day at work.

Want more on why Lily Trotters are so awesome?! 

– For starters, cute feminine designs 

– Easier to put on and take off than other brands**extremely accurate!!!

– Comfortable to wear for many hours

If you love what you’re seeing and everything that I’ve raved about, please go check out their Kickstarter campaign and support them!

    I’ve also been cursed with very muscular calves. So much that they’re bigger than my thighs. It’s nice to see that some companies are making products to actually fit them now, and not at an extraordinary price.

  5. July 23, 2015 / 1:19 pm

    We are thrilled that you like them and by the fantastic response we are having to our socks! Good luck to everybody and don’t forget to check out our Kickstarter:

    Thanks for the great review!

    I cannot wait to get some of these. Cute designs, subdued colors so you can actually wear them on a plane while traveling and not feel like a dork? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

    Meaty calves of the world – unite! I’m looking forward to compression socks that FIT with a unique look. I’d definitely wear these running but would also wear them when travelling.

    I love these Jeska! So fun! Much better than boring black. I’d wear them for running, which I don’t do nearly enough.
    Great to meet you at blogfest 🙂

    Never heard of these before but will be checking it out! Thanks!

  18. July 23, 2015 / 4:48 pm

    Yes, yes and yes! I will be coming back to enter the giveaway because I also am blessed with meaty calves!! If I were to focus weight workouts on these bad boys they can get downright huge (thanks Dad)!! I love compression socks not just for running, but even for long days at work.

    Those socks are so absolutely adorable. Is it ridiculous that sometimes the only reason why I run is to wear the cute workout clothes I’ve bought?!?

  20. July 23, 2015 / 9:55 pm

    These designs are awesome! My wife would love them – I’ll definitely have to share it with her.

  21. July 23, 2015 / 10:45 pm

    These socks look super cute! I hadn’t heard of compression socks before. I love the idea though.

  22. July 24, 2015 / 2:31 am

    I’m loving that you say they’ll fit bigger calf muscles! Mine are pretty meaty also!

  23. July 24, 2015 / 3:02 am

    Love these! I also have muscular calves, so these would be awesome. I dance and do yoga, so I would use them when I do those.

    As someone with larger calves I feel your pain. These are so cute! If they feel as good as they look I’m in!

  28. July 24, 2015 / 6:07 pm

    Okay, I’m not a runner, but I wear a lot of boots, and I love fun socks and these are stinking cute!! I love the pink dots!!

    Can’t wait to get a pair of these! I’m already signed up on Kickstarter, but if I manage to win a pair and love them I plan on increasing to a 10 pair pledge. I wear compression socks almost every day and desperately need to find a new favorite, the current favorite style I wear is no longer available 🙁

    OK…this is the weirdest thing. I was browsing through my Facebook feed, and I saw an old friend wearing something just like the blue multi-colored polka dot pair of the socks featured in your above pic. I wonder if the socks are from this company. I wish them luck on their Kickstarter campaign.
