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.

I just started wearing the thigh highs. I'm very uncomfortable. The top band is uncomfortably tight and they are pinching behind my knees. I have proportionately large thighs and short legs. My measurements are within the guidelines for a medium. I think I may also have an allergy to the rubber-like dots inside the top band. Would the panty hose style be better for me? Does the waist band on the panty hose band? How hard are they to get on? Asked by Judy

The Pantyhose are size according to the height and weight which makes these generalized in sizing. For the thigh high i suggest to take the measurements and make sure you are wearing the correct size.

I am not sure which compression pressure to purchase. I have never had surgery or anything like that, but want to purchase these so I can be extra comfortable and long flights. Can you help me? Thanks! Asked by Victoria

The compression level is issued by your doctor. However if for the first time and you will like to try for traveling we recommend the 15-20mmHg Medium compression level/ travel sock

I am looking for support hose to wear after spider vein surgery. Any suggestions? Asked by Cindy

the compression level is to be provide by your medical doctor.

    Great firm support/compression 3 people found this helpful


    These footed compression pantyhose are amazing and eliminate roughly 90% of my knee/leg pain while I am wearing them. They do take time to put on correctly,about 20 minutes for me. But after they are on,it is so worth the time and effort. Only issue is that I wish you made them in black for the 2X size. Hopefully one day. Over all a great pair of compression pantyhose.

    The plus sizes are not available in black.

    I feel (comparatively) AMAZING! 3 people found this helpful


    I was recently diagnosed with Lipedema. My legs hurt, so bad. My doc said waist-high compressions were the best option. I searched, I tried some other brands, I found these, I ordered. It took for EVER for these things to get here but let me tell y'all how worth the wait these are! Then I'll tell you my measurements and sizing. So, they came in a little wrapped grey plastic bag, with a return label. They were untouched and unscented upon opening. I fought, contorted and wriggled to get into these things, how it should be. The only reason I pulled a star was because I was very gentle, but did put a small repairable hole through with my finger towards the top inner thigh while getting them on. It was an Olympic event! So, I start my day burning calories - ok! I was afraid the waistband would not be as high rise as I'd hoped, I like the band to be at the smallest part of my waist for comfort, but I think since I don't have much of a belly, it helped to sit comfortably. They don't seem much higher or lower than any other brands I've tried. Then throughout the day I noticed I had none of the following issues I have had with my others: sagging, rolling waistband, and worst of all, blood blisters from other tights cutting into where my inner thighs meet my torso. Pottying? SO much easier! Not that these have a hole, but they are quicker to readjust . They are so breathable too. I was sooo worried about the summer, because I get so hot, but now I feel prepared!! At a perfect price point, almost anyone needing compression stockings can afford at least a pair! I appreciate that. I'm in love, and ordering more now.
    Waist: 30 inches
    Upper Hips (think 2000's low rise jeans): 45 inches
    Hip/Bottom: 49 inches
    I have thick, fatty knees and extra-wide calves. I got a pair 2xl and they seem to be right! I am afraid to go down a size, but think I'm getting the right support with the 2x!

    Comfortable, supportive, breathable, pain reducing, no cut-ins, no sagging.

    Thin fabric makes for higher possibility of tearing.

    Great Value 5 people found this helpful


    These are very comfortable and do the job. They are considerably more affordable than anything out there. They do tear easily (as do many of the other companies).
    I wish they came in prescription level compression. I also wish the black came in an open toe version.
