About Absolute Support

Absolute Support provides high quality, medical grade compression at value pricing. Made in the USA, all Absolute Support socks are designed with your health and comfort in mind. Identical to high end brands, we take 4-6 compression measurements at precise intervals between the ankle and end of garment. Multiple measurements guarantee our garments are comfortable and deliver an accurate distribution of the pressure gradient.

Apparel Attire

Compression knee high socks are specifically made to reduce swelling and promote blood circulation between your heart and your legs. By applying pressure to your calves, these socks provide comfortability and health benefits in a versatile and customizable way. Stockings that rise to just below the knee help limit lower leg swelling due to fluid buildup. They may also help prevent venous ulcers and can prevent the development of blood clots in the leg — especially if used after surgery or when you may be inactive for a while.


Sheer: Sheer tights offer a natural, smooth appearance, giving the look of perfect, silky legs with the added benefit of providing an even color all over the leg - like make up. Available in subtle matt or high gloss finish, Sheer hosiery is anything with a denier between 15 denier tights and 30 denier. Sheer is also referred to as translucent or transparent. The materials which can be made translucent include gossamer, silk, rayon or nylon. These sheer fabrics can be made from natural fibers like cotton and silk, synthetic fibers like polyester and nylon or a mix of both fiber types.  These stockings are also more transparent than the opaque styles and are often worn more frequently as an elegant stocking. However, avoid a sheer stocking if you have moderate to severe edema, or swelling. With moderate to severe swelling, it is best to wear a compression stocking that is a bit thicker and that will have better containment, such as an opaque stocking. Sheer compression stockings are thinner in material than an opaque stocking, they are great to wear during seasons with warmer weather. Sheer tights are worn typically during the spring / summer months when the weather gets a little warmer, as they offer you coverage, but the sheer yarns will keep you cool. A sheer stocking is wonderful for warmer months, travelling to an area with warmer climate, and going to a fancy dinner, event, etc

Fiber Content: 80% Nylon, 20% DuPont Lycra Spandex

Available in Plus Size

At Discount Surgical Stockings, we stand behind size-inclusivity for all categories and we proudly offer a variety of options for every style, shape, and budget.

These strong, surgical weight compression socks give you the graduated compression doctors recommend, especially for lymphedema patients.

Compression: 15-20 mmhg (Moderate Support)

To help muscles recover after sports, compressions socks and stockings are usually for 15-20 mmhg. Low compression levels such as 15-20 mmHg are an excellent choice for daily wear of compression stockings to help with mild swelling and leg fatigue from lengthy periods of travel, sitting or standing. Particularly if you have a sedentary job, wearing compression garments of 15-20 mmHg dramatically helps minimize leg swelling and subsequent discomfort versus not wearing them. The lowest level of compression is helpful for mild to moderate swelling and pain and may also help prevent varicose veins (especially during pregnancy). Light compression helps prevent swelling, leg pain and deep vein thrombosis and is a popular choice for frequent flyers.

Many people wear 15-20 mmHg graduated compression stockings to maintain good leg health as well as energize their legs throughout the day. Just about everyone can benefit from the effects of 15-20 mmHg compression stockings. If you are looking for a pair, we offer 15-20 mmHg knee-highs, thigh-highs, and waist-highs. Just use the options below to find the perfect compression socks for you.

Kindly measure your ankle and calf circumference and refer to the size chart.

    Absolute Support Compression knee highs, 15-20mmHg 0 people found this helpful


    I've been wearing, year'round, these knee highs, and couldn't be more satisfied. I've tried other brand names , but none was so sheer , durable and comfortable. I only wish you would make the 20-30mmHg in white again.
    Was this review helpful?

    Really sheer, great for dressing up, durable and comfy. To me, the best thing for travel!

    Some times I wish the top band would be a little looser.

    Was this review helpful?

    Easy to order I can always just do a reorder makes it simple my HSA account can pay for them.

    The only disadvantage is they've gone up in price $10 in the last couple years! That's more than inflation not happy at all about that!
