These gloves were as good as useless. I couldn't get my stockings on. The old style worked beautifully. Jobst brand work much better but I still like the old Mediven brand. I hope they bring it back.

The gloves work just fine. I have in the past used just ordinary household "rubber" gloves and they also did fine. Now the makers of such gloves have used more vinyl or something slick anyway, so they no longer help with the stockings at all. I did see similar gloves in a plumbing/electrical supply store, but they were more expensive. I'm not sure what the shipping would be on an order just for gloves. So check it out in such stores.

Way too small and they make your hands stink

I have used these gloves for years and find them to be very useful, hold up well, and are nice fitting.

These gloves are useful but they don't hold up. The fingers wear through in less than a year. I ordered a second pair recently and received a mismatched set - 1 medium and 1 small.

Q & A

Ask a Question
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.
