4.5 out of 5 stars
Actually quite nice and a good fit, a very good value, and I will re-order these. I like them just fine. The fabric seems to be a very good quality too.
fit well, comfortable
I have lymphadema as a result of melanoma in one leg, and having a surgical proceedure which removed all the lymph nodes from the leg in 2002. I have worn many brands of pressure garmets, of which some were quite costly. Being able to almost match performance for less than 30. dollars a pair is quite exceptional. Although these do not last quite as long as the major brands, they do last long enough to convince me they are a great value. I will continue to use these, as for the money, there is nothing else that even comes close.
I have lived with secondary lymphedema in my right leg for 13 years following surgery and radiation for cancer. Wearing a thigh-high compression stocking is the only way I can continue to be healthy and active and live a normal life. I must use the highest compression available on the market. Absolute Support stockings is the only affordable option for my medical necessity. They are comfortable yet durable for every day use. I only have one issue: the open toe end tends to roll with use, creating a crease underneath and on top of my foot. Hopefully you will be able to solve this small issue in the future. A loyal customer.
these stockings are ok for the money,, however it usually takes two in tandem to do the job of the more expensive brands, and the durability leaves a lot to be desired, as my experience indicates, after two months of wear, they will tear and run easily.
These stockings work just as well as the overpriced 'name' brands. There could be a couple of changes. The foot section is very long. I wear a size 11 woman's shoe and the foot part is long for me, can't imagine a smaller foot dealing with this. Also I need a medium for my calf & ankle, but an extra large for my thigh. Buying the XL is working, but they still roll or slide down. Overall I will keep buying them.
I use these stockings to manage lymphedema. I order 8 pair at a time, replacing them every 3 months to keep them strong. This system doesn't work very well because these stockings are always backordered - my order from two months ago is still backordered, with no indication of when it will be available, and my previous order was backordered about a month. The only solution may be to buy twice as many every six months because availability just isn't reliable enough to order new ones every three months.
I was buying Sigvaris but they got too expensive for me. Found Absolute, tried them & fell in love with the price. There are two cons to these stockings.... I need the thigh highs, but being heavy in the thigh I need the XL, but medium for the calf & ankle. I don't know why, but the tops roll down on me 'pinching' my thigh. The XL helps with that. The other con is the length of the foot.... I wear a size 11 shoe & the foot is a tad long for me. poor woman that wears a size 8..... Outside of these two things, I am more than pleased with this product.
Highly recommend these stockings
These stockings do the job, and for the price are amazing. They are drastically less expensive than the comparable Sigvaris which I used to use. I buy 8 pair at a time so I can wear one per day while only doing a laundry once per week. This is for hygiene's sake and because a stocking will not work as well if it's not fresh from the wash. The 8th pair is for occasions when I'm unable to do a laundry on schedule. I repurchase the 8 pair every three to four months because stockings wear out and need replacing a few times a year to provide enough compression. This ends up being a few hundred less per year than I was paying when I was wearing Sigvaris, because with Sigvaris I was only purchasing the 8 pair once per year, not every few months. Every three months wasn't an option economically. So of course the Sigvaris stockings became less and less effective over the year, and my quality of life degraded until it was time to buy new ones. Since this house brand is so much less expensive, less money can buy me consistent compression (and hygiene) year-round. One problem I've had with these: my skin reacted to the top of the stockings, perhaps the silicone border. It did not react to the Sigvaris this way. However, over time it seems to have gotten used to it. I also have atopic dermatitis, which reacts to a lot of things, so this may just be a problem for me.
