A: Thank you for informing us about this issue. By the end of the day today we will have an updated size chart.
In 2013 I ordered many pairs of Sigvaris 146C and they are perfect for me. When I click on "reorder" 160C comes up not 146 C. I'm not sure why. Can you help? I like the 146 C because they are not too thick and the toe box is small enough for my very narrow feet. Why are the 146 C/M socks called maternity socks? Thank you!
A: They made a couple of adjustment to what used to be the 146C and unfortunately they do not sell the old model due to it now being discontinued. The replacement for the 146C is now the 160C. We truly apologize for the inconvenience since you are not a fan of the new updated version of the sock.Since they made a change they renamed the 146C/M to a Maternity sock,We apologize once again for the confusion.
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?
