The benefits of Compression Therapy are plentiful and the reasons vary from person to person why you may choose to wear compression socks or stockings. As shown in the above chart, some of the most prevalent symptoms or conditions that benefit from compression therapy are:

  • Pregnancy related swelling and vein problems
  • Varicose or spider veins
  • Lymphedema or edema
  • Swelling, pain or blood clots in the lower legs, also known as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
  • Poor circulation from sitting for long periods
  • Post-surgical and post-sclerotherapy treatment

It can even be used as a preventive measure to maintain healthy legs for someone who spends extensive amounts of time on their feet. Quite simply, when we stand still for long periods, the forces of gravity increase the pressure within the veins of the legs where the greater effects happen at the ankle and decreases gradually up the leg and body. This pressure depends on the vertical distance of the column of blood from the heart to the foot. That's why gradient compression stockings are designed with the pressure greatest at the ankle and diminishing as it moves up the leg in order to counter the effects of the higher venous pressures.

Compression therapy products are put on in the morning upon arising, which is typically before any significant swelling would occur, and then removed at night. Throughout the day the compression prevents blood from pooling in leg veins, which in turn helps your overall circulation and lessens or eliminates any leg swelling you may have.

When shopping for compression socks or stockings, it is best to measure earlier in the day before swelling builds in the legs. Measurements taken later in the day after swelling occurs may cause you to choose an item that is too large and then not effective.

There are many types of compression socks and stockings available without a prescription and they do offer wide-ranging benefits. Before wearing a compression therapy of 20 mmHg (Firm Compression) and above, it is generally recommended to consult your health care provider to find out if graduated compression stockings are right for you. If the answer is yes, they can tell you what pressure grade you should buy for maximum benefit and relief.

I'm 5'5 and 133lbs .... right between the medium and large sizes. I've never ordered this brand, so not sure how they fit, so not sure which size to order. Can someone give me a clue on this? Asked by Linda

I would recommend sizing up to a size large.

How do I return an order? Asked by aviva

call us in so we can give you a RMA number . if its within the 30 days of your order.

I have enjoyed my Absolute Support socks and am interested in the sheer support pantyhose to wear with dresses. Two questions: (1) Since the toe area is not sewn in separately, does it have compression? I have very sensitive toes. (2) Does the panty have compression? Thanks for your help! Asked by Elaine

    Too small 0 people found this helpful



    They are too small. I bought a medium. Apparently I should have bought a large.

    Good fit and comfort 3 people found this helpful


    These help with my achy legs and varicose veins. I try to wear them several hours a day. I'm 5'10" and 175 lbs. The Queen Plus fits better than the Extra Large.
    Was this review helpful?

    Good value and durability.

    Would like to see them offered in navy blue for some variety.

    Great Pantyhose for Improving Your Leg Health 3 people found this helpful


    Best high quality compression hose at the lowest price out there. These hose are extremely durable and they wear like iron. As a T2 Diabetic man, I wear these to prevent swelling in my ankles & feet and they do that very well. In fact, nearly all of the dark spots on my legs have cleared up with regular wearing. I like these hose, they fit well, stay up all day no matter what activities I do, they are silky smooth, and glide well under pants. In the natural shades they are very sheer and pretty stealthy to wear with shorts in the warmer months. I wish I had put aside the stigma of a man wearing pantyhose and bought these 5 years sooner. I initially have worn the thigh highs but I feel pantyhose work more effectively at recirculating your blood back from your feet to your heart. Bottom line, if you're a man and you have painful varicose veins, have had a DVT or suffer from poor blood flow, it's not only OK to wear pantyhose especially, if it improves your quality of life and energy levels.
    Was this review helpful?

    Advantages are low cost for a true compression product; plenty of sizes, especially for men; more than just 1 or 2 color choices; are easy to put on; this brand has the largest, most comfortable cotton gusset of any pantyhose made. This greatly improves the comfort factor for men; and finally they really help improve your leg health.

    If these have any down sides it's the lack of colors (be nice to buy gray or coffee) and the queen plus size fits well but could be a little longer in the legs.

    Great light support for anyone with tired legs. 2 people found this helpful


    These pantyhose are great for my off days when I'm not standing at work. The queen panty was a perfect fit and the legs were the correct length for me.
    Was this review helpful?

    The legs were perfect in length for the queen size.

    No beige color.
