So far during the last 3 years that I've been required to wear these stocking for my well being... I found that this site has the best prices and are shipped out in the time stated. No problems, just wish these and all other stockings that I've tried, stay up longer and last longer in the compression. They all seem to weaken quickly, no matter which brand I try out. That's the only down fall to compression stockings, short elasticity life span. With complete submerging in water to wash and with spot washing, neither way makes a difference.
The easiest and best way to buy these compression stockings by far. I was waiting for a pair from our local medical supplier. Not only do I dislike the service but what I want is never in stock and I am made to wait for weeks. With this site, all I did was find what I needed and ordered it. In 7 days I had what I needed in my hands, no aggrivation, no stress, no one telling me that it's out of stock and no one telling me that I should use another product because the one I want is out of stock. Customer service is much better, even though I didn't speak to anyone. Haha.
Thank you and my wife and I will be ordering from you now on.
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?
