Mediven stockings are known for their quality and comfort. These Sheer & Soft 15-20mmHg compression knee highs are no exception. Knit with 45% elasthane (spandex) they are exceptionally elastic and comfortable. The knit top-band is very soft, and won't slip or bind.
Modern in style, and attractive in appearance, Sheer & Soft knee highs are designed for today's women.
A 15-20mmHg compression is considered moderate, and recommended for travel, standing for long periods of time, and to alleviate mild swelling and varicose veins. This compression is easy to put on.
In an independent survey Sheer & Soft was preferred 4 to 1 over the leading brand of sheer compression hosiery. Made in the USA.
Mediven stockings are suitable for machine washing and tumble drying to simplify daily care. Do not machine dry thigh high with silicone band.

Generally I like this brand, but after wearing this product 2 times, my finger went through the stocking as I was working it up the calf. I keep my fingernails short and have worn compression socks for many years and have never had this problem.
I usually order the next higher compression and this may make a difference.

Wonderful fit. Great support. Nice to have stockings that fit so well. I wear short, medium, and am happy with the sizing.

The customer service rep helped me find the correct size. These knee highs stay up and don't bind behind the knee, but I don't have to struggle to get them on and off.

Great 15-20mmHG Knee Highs, November 8, 2014 By Anonymous (Waxhaw,, NC)
These compression hose keep my ankles from swelling, even though they are low compression. They feel and look great and wear well. Thanks Mediven for great Sheer & Soft knee highs.
Just what I needed, September 17, 2014 By Anonymous (Scottsdale, AZ)
I couldn't find compression socks in my local stores for a petite AND wide calf size. The Medi-Sheer Soft petite knee highs are perfect. I ordered the wheat color and they blend in with my leg color very well. The final test will be when I wear them for air travel.This is my first pair of Medi Sheers, so time will tell how well they stand up to washing, but I am inclined to purchase additional pairs.
Support along with comfort at last!, October 2, 2013 By Patty W. (Midland, TX)
Wow these feel great! I have purchased Knee High support stockings in the past from my local medical supply store. They had very few options to choose from. I had many options from Brightlife. I am a large woman but small in stature. I was able to find a pair of petite stockings that fit perfect in height but were not binding around my ankles. The ones I purchased at the medical store were too long and bunched up at the ankles cutting off circulation at my ankles. My legs have never and I mean never felt better. I love these!! Thanks Brightlife for giving me so many choices.

I've tried many brands and for me these are the best. My reasons:- fabric blend comfortable and not sticky or sweaty in our humid climate. The inside is different than the silky outside of the stocking; maybe that has something to do with that comfort?- machine wash well- stay up! really! how that's accomplished I don't know but the top band is soft and doesn't dig in behind the knee. It almost seems like there's an inner "grippy-ness" to the fabric. I'm on the taller side so other brands - including the higher-priced ones - slowly sank to the ankles as the day wore on. Not these. Never have had to pull them up!- ankle fits well and doesn't wrinkle (other brands quickly developed a mysterious horizontal fold across the ankle)The truth: I was told by my doctor that I needed to wear support stockings. And my legs always felt better after a day standing if I did what I was told to do no matter what brand. But for most of that day I wanted to rip the other brands of stockings off - they all were that annoying. But not these Medi Knee-highs. These are the first brand that made me actually want to wear them!

I love these Medi Sheer & Soft knee high's. I had a different brand and could not wear them because they were to long. I am short about 5 ft. and I had to roll them down at the knee and this just caused more problems. I love the sizing that fits my short legs. They also are soft and are lots more comfortable than the other brand.

I love these knee highs. They help with the swelling of the ankles and are very comfortable. Good price and Brightlife is a great company to buy from. My only comment is the Natural color for these stockings if a couple shades darker than ones I bought about a year ago.

I love the Medi Sheer and will never "try" anything else even if others are cheaper.Recently I tried to save money by buying Allegro. THEY WERE AWFUL! Way too small and poor quality. BrightLife promptly exchanged them for the Medi.

Very nice very effective- I only wish (I always say this!) that there were more interesting colors available. I'm happy to have the open toe style available in black at least though. Excellent knee-high.

I have found these Medivan Knee High socks to be very good indeed. I like the stretchy toe cap and also the soft elastic top band which never rolls into a tight band. They stay comfortably in position all day.I previously had Jobst socks and these inspite or all my care in fitting evenly would work into a tight band just above my ankle. This was very painful and when shopping I was continually pulling them up and smoothing out the tension but could feel them slipping down at each step. It was very embarrassing to be continually stopping and adjusting my clothing !

I wear them at work as a nurse 10-12 hours a day. Was measured at our Vein Clinic. The fit is okay except for the length. I should have checked that but overall my legs feel less tired at the end of the day.

I recently purchased 2 pair of the Medi-Sheer Knee Highs as well as 2 pair of black. They are so much more comfortable than Jobst knee highs I wore 10 yrs. ago after an Achilles repair. They stay up pretty well throughout the day at work and keep the swelling post back surgery under good control. And when I happened to hit the wrong size key the customer service was on top of it asked me to be sure before sending the wrong size. Wonderful product and fast speedy helpful service!

I have now worn both pairs of Medi Sheer & Soft Thigh Highs one open toe & one closed toe. I am very pleased with the hosiery both appearance and comfort. I ordered a different size and feel that the change was also a benefit in the comfort.

These are best thigh highs I have purchased yet! They are not only soft and stretchy enough for easy donning but they also feel very comfortable and non-sticky during these currently tropical temperatures. The leg length is also perfect: not too long and not too short. The top bands do not curl and turn into a rope to pinch you. Also ordinarily compression stockings appear to pull the last bit of moisture from my legs so that the skin appears scaly. These stockings don't do it. Thus I am very happy with my purchases of the Medi Sheer & Soft Thigh Highs 15-20 mmHg and I can heartily recommend them.
