Silicone band has small silicone dots. This means less silicone is touching the skin and air can more easily circulate. Jobst Ultrasheer thigh high stockings provide the perfect combination of fashion and comfort. These compression thigh highs look like fine fashion hosiery and feature reinforced heels and closed toes.
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.
Silicone dots allow more air circulation through band

quality product, but expensive, September 22, 2015 By Anonymous (Ashland, OR)
I haven't tried other brands, but Jobst over all has been reliable. I use an adhesive to keep them up though many days I wouldn't need it. Once I get them on and avoid putting a nail through the fabric, I like their feel of support. Without them, I'd be less inclined to challenge myself walking hills or standing for extended periods at a time.
Jobst versus Juzo, August 22, 2014 By Anonymous (MD)
I could not wear the Jobst. they slipped each time I walked up or down the stairs (from first wearing) and cut into the back of my knees painfully when they slipped. The Juzo stay up much better for me because the fit is better: Jobst only has about 3 basic sizes while Juzo has about 6, allowing me to get a much more custom-style fit. (Check out the differences on their sizing charts yourself. Women with very different leg sizes must still order the same size in Jobst.)
Love these!!, July 30, 2013 By April (piedmont, SD)
I love these thigh highs! I love, love, love the dot band. They stay up great and don't feel like they are trying to amputate my leg at the thigh like some others I have tried. I would say that these are well worth the money!
