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.

This selection only goes by foot size...will this work with larger calves? Asked by Shelly

The XL size may be an option but I would say this item would be good for people with calves of about 15-17 in.

    Comfortable, but...... 0 people found this helpful


    These support hose are great. I love the feel, they are so very soft. I love the colors also. What I don't like is the band around the top for the calf area. It is too tight. I ended up cutting mine to make them fit better but that didn't help. I don't understand how you can measure a stocking by the shoe size. Everyone's legs are a different size especially in the calf area. I have the same sized feet as my skinny daughters however my legs are not skinny. I previously brought my support hose from this company and was very pleased so I am surprised that they have resorted to this sizing. I am sorry to say I will no longer be purchasing my hose from here.

    Colorful Compression Stockings 0 people found this helpful


    These compression stockings were just what I was looking for.
    They're bright colors were a warm welcome to the usual drab beige ones.
    My disappointment was the sizing. I measure my legs to insure the correct size.
    They were very, very small. I could not get passed my toes.
    I ordered XXL.
