Absolute Support
Athletic Compression Socks
Model A1010

Unisex Cotton Compression Socks -  Medium Graduated Support 15-20mmHg - Absolute Support  Value Brand

By far our most popular sock! Natural cotton construction provides a refreshing natural comfort. 
Absolute Support Knee Highs are clinically proven and physician recommended. 
Thicker than our regular nylon/lycra dress socks, these socks are warmer in winter, cooler in summer, and ideal for everyday wear or as an athletic sock for team sports, golf or walking.

Healthier, better feeling legs begin at the ankles - graduated support applies pressure starting at the ankle and gently massages and enhances upward circulation in the legs.

Fiber Content:
80% Cotton, 13% Nylon, 7% Lycra Spandex

Order by shoe size:

  • Small = 7 and under

As a nurse and on my feet all day I struggled to find support hose that didn't bind at the knee. I have had some that caused more being issues but these are great! The compression is spot on and no binding at ankle or knee. My legs feel wonderful after a long shift! Highly recommend these!

Within the past month, a physician, specialist in varicose veins, prescribed a 15-20 hg calf large size support stockings. As a friends was due back here from NYC, she agreed to bring the order back to me, but we only had a few days before her return. DSS was able to rush, with 2 day delivery, our order of 6 white socks. A few of the packages indicate made in USA, if that is the truth, even better in our opinion (so many products from China are mislabelled to avoid US trade laws, so hope the packaging is tue.) The DSS telephone representative was very helpful and infomrative.. Do note that they are closed on Fridays and Saturdays.. So far, after several weeks use, the socks are holding up as if brand news. I do not believe they ship outside of the USA, so when it is time for new socks, will have to wait for a friend or until we are visit in early September 2020. We chose DSS as my wife had bought from them many years ago. Quality products at affordable prices. Was very satisfied then for a temporary issue. They still had her account on file.

I have had a difficult time in locating a pair of socks for my mother who has battled with swollen legs for several years. After exhausting the stores in our area I turned to the internet and found you folks. After trying the first pair I ordered (which didn't work well) I returned them for something different. With some assistance from one of the representatives, I chose the ones listed. At first it looked like they wouldn't work either, but with help with a staff member, she was able to get them on and the socks didn't hurt or pinch her feet. I think we found a winner!

First try with this product. First impression is that the cotton has helped clear up the skin it touches.

I'm following my doctors recommendation to wear a compression sock on my left leg which I broke when I was in my twenties. These socks are made of excellent quality material and by the end of the day virtually eliminate the discomfort and swelling in my lower leg / ankle area that I was experiencing. I highly recommend Discount Surgical Stockings.

Several years ago the doctor prescribed compression stockings, but my budget and ego (mostly ego) wouldnt let me purchase, and recently, I thought to myself that I needed to buy, so I checked these out, purchased two pair, and now im about to pick up 4 maybe 5 more pair! Ease of ordering, ease of payment, good materail easy delivery... what's not to like ! ! and my legs and ankles thank me ! ! !

I have worn unisex absolutely support cotton compression stockings for years. They give me the support I need and are very comfortable to wear. ( And they are the best price!) I recommend them to everyone who needs compression stockings.

I wore these socks on a recent road trip and my ankles did not swell at all the whole time. Thats 6 hours of driving a day. Best fit I have had with compression socks.

Very comfortable [cotton vs. other stretch fabric]; more so than Copper Fit that I have had.

Q & A

Ask a Question
3 questions for this item
Q: i need socks with compression in the ankle area
A: that would be any stocking . the compression starts at the ankle and makes its way up the leg.
Q: Absolute Support sizes by shoe size. I weigh 300 lbs with lg calves. I want the foot to fit, but then will the leg part be way too tight? My calves circumferences are 17 1/2 inches.
A: unfortunately, i would place you in a item that goes by measurments and not by shoe size because it could fit you in the foot area but not in your calf . try A201BL5 this item gives you the features of a extra wide calf and it also goes up to a 5XL.
Q: I used the sizing chart but nothing prepared me for the toe part being so large. do you know why that is?
Questions that are on Your Mind
Q: Can you help me with sizing?
A: You can view the size chart here: size chart
You will need accurate measurements, so first learn how to measure.
Q: What is compression? What is the difference in compression?
A: You wear compression stockings to improve blood flow in your legs. Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs to move blood up your legs. This helps prevent leg swelling and, to a lesser extent, blood clots.
Q: What does mmHg mean?
A: mmhg stands for "millimeter of mercury", a way to measure pressure. The higher the number, the tighter the garment will squeeze and the more compression it provides.
Q: How can we wash the garments? And with which soap or detergent?
A: We recommend to hand wash in warm water and air dry. You can use mild soup of the washing solution that we provide such as the jobst jolastic, hosiery mate washing solution, sigvaris liquid washing solution etc. See our full washing instructions.
Q: What is the difference between open toe and close toe?
A: There is no therapeutic difference between open and closed toe socks. The choice is yours, whichever is more comfortable.
Q: What is opaque?
A: Opaque is a thicker material that provides great coverage and your skin will be far less visible. Usually worn in winter because of the thickness.
Q: What is sheer?
A: Sheer is a thinner, dressier material. Customer usually like these because they can use them as dress socks for work or church.
Q: Do I get compression at the toe area?
A: No. Compression begins at the ankle and gradually lessens as it goes up the leg. This reduces pooling in the legs and helps the veins return blood to the heart.
Q: Will a thicker material give me more support than the sheer material?
A: No. The compression provided is measured by mmHg and is the same no matter the material. The choice of material is up to you, whichever is more comfortable.
Q: If I get pantyhose will I get more compression than with a knee-hi?
A: No.
