SoftFit Technology. A revolution in compression stockings
JOBSTÂ® UltraSheer knee high stockings are available now with the unique SoftFit technology. Thanks to patent-pending knitted-in silicone yarns in the inner knee welt area, the SoftFit technology improves both comfort and efficacy. The specially siliconised yarns adhere softly to the skin and keep the stockings in place. As a result, the pressure in the top band area can be lowered in favour of higher wearing comfort.

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.
|First Time Wearing Compression Stockings? We recommend you start with 15-20mmHg|
|RX||40-50 mmHg Gradient Compression Stockings are generally indicated for more Serious Venous Diseases such as Acute Leg/Ankle Swelling, Varicose Veins, Chronic Vein Insufficiency and Deep Vein Thrombosis.|
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:
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.
Unfortunately I don't think Jobst will be making a short option for this sock since they currently do have some options with that feature here are some options for you to consider: ULKN12 or OPKN12

Comfortable, and do the job sufficiently. And as an extra-large, tall person, Jobst comes in My Size - bigger around the calf and long enough to go to my knee. The cheaper stockings fall short in both categories.
Like any support stockings, they're not exactly uber-attractive, but I'd rather put up with the lack of 'pretty' just so my feet don't swell up and ache.
