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.
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.

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.

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:
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.
That question will depend more on your skin tone. I suggest that you order both and compare them and send the one you don't need back for a refund.

No swelling in my legs and overall makes me feel better.
None for me.
Comfort, appearance, stays in place on foot, non-binding at top, fast-drying
Difficult to put on, color selection in open-toe style is limited, feel easy to tear or snag
The hose are sheer and don't look like compression hose.
I ordered women's medium, the hose are slightly short. However, they stay in place well and good compression.
Sheer, durable, great toe balloon, long-lasting, wonderful low price. Better than the $60 name-brand and other generics.
