I have had three (3) different compression hose varieties in the past twenty years. The ExoStrong are very comfortable and they have silicone grippers around the top, which eliminate the need for using a skin adhesive. I have experienced cellulite during the past 40 years. In the beginning, the incidents were slightly above a minor rating. At that time, my family doctor prescribed compression hose, which I faithfully wore this entire time. This past December, I had an infection in my leg that required hospitalization on 3 occasions. After my last hospitalization, it was recommended that I seek therapy help with my problem, which I did do. I was diagnosed with lymphedema and I was prescribed a compression pump. It was also recommended that I wear the ExoStrong Hose. They feel great. I have three pairs now, and I plan on procuring a couple of more pairs. It is easier on the laundry if I have multiple pairs.
