They do NOT stay up!, March 7, 2017 By Corinne (Woodinville, WA)(Verified)
While the tights themselves are very comfortable, I cannot get them to stay up. I work at a desk job so I am sitting for a time, while getting up and walking often. After sitting for 10min or more, they start to ride down and then bunch up behind my knees. After 30 min or more, the top of the tights are no longer at my upper thigh, but only a few inches above my knee, and the tights are tightly bunched up around my knee, which is painful. I have tried different applications of cream to hold them up, but nothing works. I can't wear them and cannot recommend them.
Jobst Relief PETITE Thigh Highs 20-30mmHg, October 27, 2016 By Kit Kaylor (Port Hadlock, WA)
This is my third pair of stockings. I have had the same problem with every pair, they slide down and gather behind my knees cutting off the circulation. However, I have figured out how to make them stay up for at least half the day. I rub my legs down with lotion and it seems to make the socks stay up better.

The petite size solved the problem I had with regular sizes, which were too long.
