Customer Questions
I like the look of thigh high sleeves for styling with dance skirts. I was under impression that compression started at ankles? How does sleeves compare to stockings? Asked by Barbara
Do you have footless stockings? Asked by Barbara
For the footless thigh highs according to the sizing chart it wants you to measure around the ankle, around the thigh, and the length of the leg but when you look at the actual chart, the length isn't listed anywhere on there. Should you just choose the size according to the measurements around the ankle and thigh? Asked by Ashley

Measure the circumference above your ankle bone, the thickest part of your calf, and the thickest part of your thigh. With these measurements you will be able to determine what size you will need.

What is the difference between Firm and 20-30mmHg? Asked by Dora

No difference. Firm means 20-30mmHg compression.

Could you please state the difference in the LENGTHS of the Compression No Foot Thigh Hi leggings corresponding size diameters S,M,L,XL? Ann Asked by Russell

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.
