Sensitive, is the new silicone band technology from Jobst. Fine threads of silicone are knit into the top-band of the stocking. Traditional silicone top-bands are sewn on, and don't stretch like a knit top-band. They can be constricting and uncomfortable, especially on sensitive skin. The new Sensitive band holds the stockings securely in place, but with much less silicone touching the skin. This provides better breathability and comfort, and less irritation.
Below the top-band, Opaque has not changed. The soft, smooth Opaque fabric is very easy to don and wear. The fabric hides varicose veins, spider veins, and blemishes. A reciprocated toe and heel add to the durability and comfort of the foot portion.

The best compression hose ever!, July 27, 2016 By Anonymous (Clarkston, MI)
This is the first pair of compression hose that I absolutely love. They fit perfectly! I even look forward to putting them on in the mornings. BTW, I am 5'7", 160 lbs and wear a size 14. Also, if you like to have the hose go just above your knee, order the petite.
