Sheer & Soft knee highs in a firm 20-30mmHg compression are worn to treat mild to moderate swelling, varicose and spider veins, and to prevent DVT's. The exceptionally sheer fabric will make your legs look beautiful at the same time.
Mediven manufactures their stockings in seven sizes and two lengths. This means you get the most accurate fit and compression in a ready-to-wear stocking.
Designed for today's women, Medi Sheer & Soft is attractive in appearance, modern in style, and exceptionally comfortable. In an independent survey Sheer & Soft was preferred 4 to 1 over the leading brand of sheer compression hosiery, that begins with a j. Knit in the USA from 55% polyamide and 45% elasthane.
Mediven stockings are suitable for machine washing and tumble drying to simplify daily care. Do not machine dry thigh high with silicone band.

These have always worked well and lasted for a long time. I also found the recent comparison of all the brands helpful.
Best for both look and feel, April 29, 2016 By Anonymous (Prescott, AZ)
I ordered these in Wheat and even though I am 5'7" I ordered the petite length based on other comments. I love the wheat color, somewhat sheer and very summery - my legs are pale to start with so this is perfect. When I opened the box I was surprised at how small the stockings looked but the stretch and actually fit wonderfully and were very easy to put on, not my usual experience with 20-30 stockings. I wish I could afford to wear these every day. They are very comfortable despite the tendency to roll down slightly at the top. When I pulled then all the way to just a quarter inch or so below the crease at my knee the rolling was stopped so it worked out.
Nice sheer stocking, March 6, 2016 By Ann Spencer (Scottsdale, AZ)
This brand and style are the one compression stocking that does not look like a compression stocking. It is very sheer and light. I use the Juzo stocking gel to keep them up and it works great. Very nice when you want a natural color sheer look as opposed to a color.

The product is great! Nice quality. The only problem that i have is that they will not stay up. They slide down and I have to constantly pull them up.
Best socks ever!, September 30, 2015 By Anonymous (Cosby, TN)
I bought these for my mother, who has worn socks from other companies. She is RAVING over how good these are. They have the pressure exactly where it is needed, leaving the heel and ankle free to move around and not cut off circulation. The color is just right for her skin tone too.

Very comfortable, easy to get on. Very glad prior reviews mentioned the length. I never would have believed the petite would be more than long enough!

Am VERY pleased with these! I am 5 ft. 11 inches tall women and wear a size 12 shoe...I have lymphedemia in my ankles and legs...very swelled ankles. THESE FIT! They come all the way up to my knee and stay put. The sheerness of them make for a nice, natural look...delighted!

I'm very happy with this brand. It's worked out to be the right sizing and style for me.
good fit, May 1, 2014 By Anonymous (Auburn, AL)
better fit and comfort than Medi's less expensive knee high stockings. Very light weight leaves me wondering if the compression will be as good. Will have to evaluate that over time.
Not as comfortable as wishes, April 25, 2014 By Carol Webb (Stuart, FL)
The band on the hose is uncomfortable and the reinforced toe area shows when you wear flats or low vamp shoes. Looking for something else.

Medi Sheer & Soft Knee High 20-30mmHg, November 11, 2013 By Bobbie Brolsma (Mahwah, NJ)
These are the most fantastic knee highs ever!!! They fit well, stay in position all day, legs and feet feel great end of work day. The have long endurance record which counts for me. They have helped tremendously with the problems I experience with veins and my doctor completely agrees.
Very happy with these!, October 18, 2013 By Anonymous (Vancouver, WA)
An experienced therapist turned me onto this site and the Sheer & Soft product - both have met my expectations. This is a far softer, more natural hose than any other brand I've tried. The reinforced toe is subtle enough that I look good in all my footwear. Glad my doctor recommended compression hose, they make a very positive difference in how my feet and legs feel and look. The length of this product is out of scale though; they run long. A customer service rep recommended ordering the petite size if your leg from ankle bone to knee bone is 15" or less. It was surprising because I'm not petite at all, 5'8" tall, but the petite size is perfect.
buy petite unless you are very tall, October 9, 2013 By Anonymous (HO HO KUS, NJ)
I tried this in regular size and I had to fold it at the top which made it bunch up and was painful. The petite is just perfect and I am 5'10". For 20-30 mmHg, it fairly close to regular pantyhose. (I will hardly ever give a 5 - these are the best)
Mediven toe box, March 22, 2013 By Anonymous (Nashville, TN)
I have worn these stockings for years but I keep waiting for Mediven to update the closed toe style to a shorter reinforcement line so that it doesn't show when wearing stylish shoes. It's bad enough to have to wear support hose, but the double fabric showing above my shoe line is very unattractive. We don't all wear orthopedic shoes! Please help!

These silky socks are so easy to put on! I do not need the special gloves to aid putting them on. The top band is wide enough for comfort yet they do not slip down. What an improvement from the ugly heavy-duty sock to the sleek chic one!

Color and texture are excellent very contemporary. I have the 20-30 mg. and they are "work" to put on ( I slipped them nearly entirely wrong side out- slipping toe on first and then sliding over foot and up calf) but very comfortable once on. Will probably buy these over other brands previously purchased.

I love my Medi stockings. They are the most comfortable and the best looking socks I have tried. I am in my mid-thirties and I live in Texas I do care about having good support and having good looking breathable socks for this hot weather.At a certain point Mediven company changed the shade of their neutral color and fabric as well. My first compressions were Medis from "old line" and I liked them a lot. My second ones were from that "new line" and I was not as pleased. Then I started trying out different brands (thanks for excellent return policy Brightlife!). The only brand which came close to Medis in terms of being comfortable and stylish was Juzo. However that changed when my left stocking ripped at the heel. Minor complaint for Medis is the firmness. Comparing to Juzos Medis loose their firmness sooner (under the same washing and wearing conditions). On the flipside they are extremely comfortable AND they give good support. (Juzos were so firm that it would be a pain to wear them in the evening). Overall great stockings. Excellent customer service. Thanks Brightlife direct.

At first I liked Medis I bought more than three months ago. Fabric was soft comfortable to wear. However they did not hold up well in spite the fact they never saw neither washer nor dryer.I ordered another pair but ended up returning it for the following reasons: color and fabric were totally different they were very uncomfortable. Apart from the product customer service is astounding.

I am very disappointed in my recent purchase of Mediven Shear & Soft Knee High stockings - Natural color. I have worn them since they came out and the Natural color now looks very dark almost a chocolate color. I am returning them and am told that this is apparently the "new" Natural.
