The Best Stockings for Me
My ankles and calves exceed the maximum dimensions indicated for these FULL CALF size stockings but I am still able to use them instead of resorting to getting very expensive custom made compression garments. My biggest problems is, because of the thickness of my calves, the stockings gradually shift and gather at the ankle and this is unhealthy and causes discomfort. Stocking adhesive solves this problem. I have been using only this type of stocking for several years. If I manage to lose some weight and slim down my calves enough to change to the regular version of this stocking instead of FULL CALF, I would be able to have choice of color instead of always just the black.

JOBST & Discount Surgical Stockings are #1 in my book
Very pleased with fit & comfort. Wear stockings approx. 14 hours a day 7 days a week. Prevents ankle swelling especially on days when I am at my computer all day or on long Motor cycle trips. Discount Surgical Stockings are very easy to order from & I am very satisfied with their service & prices. Tried other brands & always came back to JOBST

Great for EXTRA THiCK Calf and Ankle
The only type compression stockings I wear. Vascular MD thought I would need a custom made pressure garment/stocking due to the thickness of my calves and ankles but this full calf style fits. Because it is a bit snug at the calf, it will shift a bit during wearing however, and bunch at the ankle. This is remedied by pulling up the slack at the ankle and every few inches upward toward the knee to reposition the stocking evenly over the length of the leg on which it is worn. It is important to do this soon after feeling the shift and ankle bunching or the added pressure of bunching at the ankle will cause "pitting", an indentation from fluid being pressed out of a band around the ankle, and once such a indentation forms, it accelerates the repositioned stocking in slipping down toward the ankle again. The ribbing in the knit of these stockings deters them from rolling down and makes it easier to grasp the stockings to put them on and to grasp areas to gentle adjust. They also feel very comfortable and more stimulating than the smooth knit type stockings-like the calves are getting a light massage with each movement of the leg muscles.
