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.

I have a length of 32 for the thigh high. Can you accommodate that length? Asked by Angela

You will need a long length.

    Best “power socks” 1 people found this helpful


    Great fit. Once you learn, easy to put on and take off. Wish they came in black.

    So much less restrictive 2 people found this helpful


    This is a much better way to handle lymphademy when it is only in one leg. You don't have to pull the stockings off to use the restroom.

    Better than the "J" brand 2 people found this helpful


    I liked the fact that the waist attachment was a separate piece. Since the part that could be used to keep stocking up on my thigh was too small, I manipulated the waist piece to extend it. The stocking was sized correctly those Velcro pieces were too small. Since it is important not to let the stocking slip and gather at the knee or ankle and endanger other veins, I also used some of the roll-on glue called "It Stays" to help at the top edge of thigh.

    Why only open toe?! 1 people found this helpful


    I purchased these (right and left leg) not realizing that they were open-toe in style. But it turns out they don't come in the closed-toe style, for some reason. The open-toe style does have one advantage over the closed-toe. It comes with a nice slippery “sock” that you put on your foot and helps you to start slipping on the hose. This brand fits very well. I am 5'0” and about 150 pounds, with a relatively long trunk and short legs, so I ordered the size Medium, length Short. The height of the hose is just right, as is the waist attachment. The only other pair I have to compare to is the Juzo Soft “chaps-style” hose. The Juzo's waist attachment is far too big for my waist, and the height is a bit too long for me. The Sigvaris' material is a bit thinner than the Juzo and a bit softer as well. All in all, I am happy with this brand and style of compression stockings.

    Thoughts on Sigvaris vs Jobst Chaps 3 people found this helpful


    Closed-toe stockings bind on my toes. Thigh high stockings come unglued and creep down. Panty hose are tight waisted, hot, and hard to put on. This is why I ordered open toe chaps. My first pair was Jobst. I ordered Sigvaris for my second set, at a slight price advantage. The sizing chart worked for me, and the Sigvaris open-toe chaps fit ok and felt good - at first. Not wanting to have to wash these things every night, and needing to wear them day and night at first, I ordered a second pair to put into the rotation. For my second set I received two right legs (contrary to the package label). It was a while before I figured out the problem. Labels on the stocking waistbands do not indicate if it is a right or left leg. Also, the Sigvaris chaps have detachable waistbands, adding to the confusion. This also adds more velcro and so they are thicker (more binding) at the waist compared to Jobst, and take longer to dry. I decided to return the set (instead of one) is mainly because Sigvaris chaps have less fabric at the top than Jobst, and so they don't provide the same coverage across the rear. You might think this is good or bad - your preference. This may be why Sigvaris chaps seem to creep down quicker, although both brands have too much stretch at the top, permitting the thighs to creep down. They need constant readjustment to prevent chafing when they fall to their lower limit (about 6 inches below the crotch) and then bind on the inner thigh and behind the knee. When wearing these under long underwear for outdoor activity, it is a problem to frequently stop and pull down pants and long johns to readjust stockings. Bad enough with only one layer on top of the hose. So I am switching to panty hose. Even though the panty hose I have tried so far also creep down, it takes longer and they don't have that inner-thigh chafing issue. The quest continues. Wondering how football players keep their pants up, and why the rest of us can't benefit from that technology.
