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.

QA
Can you wash them in the washing machine -gentle cycle or only by hand? Dryer? Thank you. Asked by natasha

You can surely use a washing machine with a delicate setting in place as well as gentle detergent. Delicate setting in both wash and dry*. Hand washing with warm water is fine as well , with line drying. 

Is the color Black for these medium compression tights a TRUE Black? I ordered these last year in Black and they are more charcoal and clashes with my black clothing. Asked by So

Yes it is a true black. We do suggest the material to be thick on the leg, the skin must not show through the material.

    I'm on my feet more than not. I wear these everyday all year long. It's understandable that I'm tired at the end of the day but my legs don't hurt.

    I am on the go from 6Am to 3pm often walking many local streets in my ministry.

    The compression panty hose is a help to me to finish my daily schedule especially since I am on my feet and outdoors most of the time.

    Without my compression hose my legs would hurt and I would not be able to fulfill my daily routine.

    I wash the hose daily in mild soap and hang to dry and the next day they are good as new.

    If you need compression hose I highly recommend them to purchase on this sit
    Read moree as your legs and pocketbook will both be benefited.

    These tights are great with shorts when its cooler . They don't bag or sag. The reinforced heels and toes resist runs and the panty isn't tight. The sand color is like a light beige. These are completely opaque.

    Love my tights I got from Discount Surgical Stockings! I believe they were made by Absolute Support. They are comfortable, but strong against rips and snags. I plan to order more again soon.
