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.

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:

  • Pregnancy related swelling and vein problems
  • Varicose or spider veins
  • Lymphedema or edema
  • Swelling, pain or blood clots in the lower legs, also known as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
  • Poor circulation from sitting for long periods
  • Post-surgical and post-sclerotherapy treatment

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.

    Great fit for my long calves and a roomy toe. 0 people found this helpful


    These are the only brand I've tried that are long enough for my lower legs 17and1/2 inches. They are also plenty roomy enough for my toes, size 11 women's. I do give the toes a tug after I put the stockings on to be sure they aren't pulling tight against the ends of my toes, just being careful not to pull the heel down.

    Great fit, both length and in the toes, and fairly easy to get on. The silicon band keeps them from rolling at the top.

    I have to have the silicon band which adds to the price, but worth it really. I did have one stocking that developed a small run from the corner of the reinforcement at the heel after about 15-20 wearings.

    Love these Knee High 0 people found this helpful


    These are so comfortable. I have been purchasing these knee highs for years. They stay in place but sometimes at the end of the day they do slide down a little bit and sometimes they do cause a ring around my ankle but that's if I am on my feet all day and my legs swell. I used to get the long but after a couple of wears they stretch out. Now I get the short in XL and they stay in place. Love them and I order these all the time. Great for swelling and I put them on as soon as I get out of bed and take them off at the end of the day. This is an everyday routine to help my leg swelling and edema. And it works.

    Mom's best stockings 0 people found this helpful


    I have tried other brands on Mom and figured that the compression factor and fir should be the same for all compression stockings. I was wrong. The Sigvaris brand fits Mom the best and works the best on her to significantly decrease her edema.
