Jobst Opaque thigh highs are made from smooth, soft, breathable fabric. These petite length stockings fit a leg length of less than 27", and are available with an open or closed toe. They feature a comfortable silicone dot top band that keeps them firmly in place.
This stocking provides 20-30mmHg of gradient compression and helps improve blood flow, prevent edema (swelling), and reduce the discomfort caused by moderate to severe varicose veins. Opaque thigh highs help in the recovery from sclerotherapy and other post-surgical procedures. They also help prevent the recurrence of venous ulcerations. Woven from a 72% nylon 17% spandex and 11% silicone in Mexico.
I Expected Better From Jobst, January 14, 2017 By Ellaine Ragland (Tracy, CA)(Verified)
I put these stockings on for the first time went for a walk on my treadmill. Before I had gone a mile they were hanging down around my knees. Obviously they offer minimal, if any, compression above the knee. This is unacceptable performance from a brand like Jobst. Especially considering how much they cost
Of course, if you're not active and don't care if they lack above the knee compression and don't mind gluing them up from day-one, they may be just the support stockings for you. But why not save money and buy knee highs?
I did like some of the features these stockings offer: The texture is soft, stretchy and silky. To my eye the color is very natural. They are also easy to put on (because of inadequate compression?) â€“ All of which made it difficult to send them back in spite of poor performance.
At the same time I ordered these stockings I ordered Median Plus. Wow, do they have compression. No glue need here. My legs feel 20 years younger!

I love the fit and the material of the stocking. Unfortunately there is something in the top band that I have a sensitivity to. I am hoping that with washing, it will diminish.

Have had same quality for much less. Thought I would try the high end Jobst stockings, but they really aren't worth the extra cost compared to the lower priced brands.

I am 5'2" and these petite fit perfectly! Love how light, airy, and soft these feel. Have to wear 24/7, so know what I'm talking about! Would have given a 5 star if the toe seam was the same color as the hose. (seam is a brown shade-Jobst, please fix this!)
