I have enjoyed these stockings for years. Great fit, great look, and machine wash and dry well. Only downside--they are sheer, so the toe tends to wear thin and pop through quickly. Hint: Keep toenails trimmed and smooth, and pull toe area loose a little before putting on shoes. Also, I only wear them for dressup, never sports. Best to get the heavy duty kind for that.

I was thrilled to find Discount Surgical Stockings. The pairs I ordered were exactly the hose and brand I have had to purchase from a Medical Supply Store in my area. I saved over $20 per pair. They also were shipped quickly and arrived sooner then the expected time given. I will assuredly order from this company again. Thank You

I lide the fit and the feel of these hose. I just wish they or someone would make a hose that was not quite so dark. This time I bought natural and wheat to see if either of them would really look natural. And they don't!! Please lighten up the natural a bit.

Finding petite sizes that are short enough to not cut into the back of my knee but still not be too tight is tough. These fit very well. They also stay in place.

Disappointed in that the colors seem to be different than in the past. Ordered the nude first. Way too dark. So I realized that my past orders must have been the Natural. When these came, I could not discern any difference in color between the nude and the natural. Both are too dark in tone for my skin tone and appear to me to be identical colors. I have worn the footless in the past in the summer with sandals and skirts or crop pants and they looked very natural. But not these current orders. I also do not like the placement of the sewn-in tag at the top band. This was never a problem in past orders of mine. They also seem to be longer than other brands which is really too long for my legs. (I am 5'4" tall).

I really wish medi would make the natrual color look more natural. Il is very dark.

Medi is a new product for me and the price was so much better than a local supplier offered. I have used Jobst in the past and found those to be satisfactory but I would definitely purchase the Medi sheer knee highs again.

I am disappointed in these stockings as I can tell Medi-ven has made the foot area a bit larger. Consequently, the compression on my foot is not as great and now my foot is swelling. The compression on the leg seems the same but the "toe box" is different. I noticed this in the previous pair of regular stockings I received so thought I'd try the Sheer and Soft model. Why can't companies keep the old models still available when they come out with "new & improved" items? Guess I'll have to start searching for a different company-sigh!

I've been using this product for over ten years and I find it as good as when I bought it locally for a much lower price. Quality seems to be the same.

Just today I needed to sew the THREE holes that started 4 separate hose/socks since the 3 weeks that I've owned them. This is the first time I've purchased this style (because my usual style was discontinued) and although they feel comfortable they are TOO thin, and a hole has started on the calf as well, along with the holes in the toes. Too expensive to have this happen!

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.
