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.

Material

Opaque: The term “opaque stockings” is used to describe hosiery that tends to be non-translucent Opaque stockings are usually about 50 deniers or higher in weight, thus achieving its thick appearance. Opaque stockings can be made from a variety of materials, including nylon. Opaque stockings combine outstanding functionality with an especially soft and pleasant feel. Their refined opacity discreetly hides blemishes while effective moisture management and ease of donning support everyday comfort. As you might imagine, a sheer is going to be a bit more breathable than an opaque stocking. An opaque is wonderful for cooler months when you want the extra warmth. An opaque stocking will effectively hide very pronounced varicosities or unwanted sunspots, while the sheer will cover your legs, but still mildly expose your skin. 

Fiber Content: 78% Nylon, 22% 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. Our plus-size compression garments are designed to provide the medical compression support for extra wide sizes. These strong, surgical weight compression socks give you the graduated compression doctors recommend, especially for lymphedema patients.

Compression: 20-30 mmhg (Firm Support)

If wearing a lower compression does not seem to be minimizing the swelling in your legs enough, higher-grade (or medical grade) compression may be more effective. Usually, people who suffer from swelling can benefit from 20-30 mmHg socks. These can help them alleviate symptoms of moderate to severe edema and varicose veins. Compression stockings 20-30 mmHg may also help after surgery on the advice of a doctor and reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) from sitting for too long. They are specially formulated to relieve pain in the legs and calves, venous ulcers, edema, and other diseases of the lower extremities. The 20-30 mmHg compression stockings from Discount Surgical Stockings have medical-grade standards and beautiful designs that are designed to fit any aesthetic. These socks can help reduce swelling, relieve leg pain, and prevent venous ulcers. These socks are recommended for people with mild to moderate conditions. The range of 20-30 mmHg compression socks features many styles that can match any wardrobe or personal style.

QA
does the seam on the closed toe run across the top of the toes or at the ends? Asked by jean

These are almost seamless; there is a slight feel on the top of the toes.

I purchased a medium, open-toed version of these a long time ago for a vein treatment and wore them only for a short time. They still fit well, however I've been advised to get a new pair to make sure the compression is the same. I have a series of treatments coming up and would like to know if the medium in this new version will fit the same as the old version. My measurements are consistent with a medium, but sometimes that doesn't always work out with a new manufacturer. Asked by Peggy

If your measurements are running in the medium size on this model, then that will be your size. These stockings run true to size.
