M806BE3

I wear a size 11 women shoe would the compression sock stock the swelling in my feet and ankles. I'm also a CNA associate, I stay on my feet all day . Asked by Adrena

This item is sized by the measurement of your ankle, calf and length. This would be a good option for someone on their feet alot.

Size medium with regular length would be a good option for those measurements.

I wear a size 13 mens shoe and i don't see any measurement for the size of the foot. How can I be sure the socks I am ordering will fit my large foot? Asked by Pat

The foot area usually stretches enough even if you have large feet.I would suggest the open toe, that way you have the correct measurements but at the same time its guaranteed comfortably in the foot.

My ankle is 8.25", calf 14" and length 15". That's at the top of "small" or should I order "medium" to be safe? Asked by Bonni

You would be a size medium.

Are these Latex free Asked by Janeane

Yes, they are

what is the difference between surgical opaque and microfiber opaque Asked by glenda

The difference between surgical opaque and microfiber opaque is that they use a different type of fiber context. Instead of using the regular nylon they use a microfiber nylon that gives the socks a dressier look than an opaque sock.

Hi The short length Is currently not available with a silicone border

I measure 7.5" ankle, 13" calf, 16" length, and wear a size 8.5 shoe. Would a medium, short, regular calf be the right size? I want a closed toe, but need the large toe box.

The size medium is correct. The foot part of the garment is universal and will stretch up to 12 womens shoe size.

Maybe the feature you are requesting are out of stock or not made

What is the on length on the short knee-hi Asked by Kathleen

We do not have the length of each size of the short size stockings. We only know that the short length is for length 15" or lower.

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 seem 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 size Medium on this model then that will be your size. This stockings run true to size.

Compression stockings are medical grade devices designed to move blood flow. 

Support compression stockings are made available in multiple compression support levels. Most commonly compression support stockings come in mild (8-15 mmHg), Medium (15-20 mmHg), Firm (20-30 mmHg), X-Firm (30-40 mmHg) gradient compression levels.

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.
