Petite and Short Length Compression Stockings for Women
Not sure if you need petite stockings? Measure!
For most brands, a lower leg length of 15” or less from the floor to the bend of the knee is considered petite length for knee-high socks. For thigh-highs and pantyhose, petite lengths are usually necessary when leg length from the floor to the crease of your buttocks is less than 28”.
While many shorter women will make do with normal length socks, it’s important that you get the right size for your compression garments. Stockings that are too long will typically roll-over at the top, causing wrinkling that can be painful, uncomfortable, and unattractive. This can also reduce the effectiveness of the compression itself.
Since some brands can vary, be sure to check the sizing for the specific socks you wish to purchase. You can also give our fitters a call at 1-877-545-8585 for assistance. Or, use our size machine, which will show you a pair of socks that will fit great.

And don’t think needing petite socks limits your style options – you can still choose from knee-high, thigh-high, and waist-high stockings in a variety of compression levels. Our socks are perfect for fashion-focused AND health-conscious women.
