Medi for Men Select is a new, exciting line of compression socks designed especially for men. Unlike unisex brands, these socks are designed with a man's foot in mind. The foot of the sock has extra stretch to accommodate a foot size up to 14. This Extra-Wide Calf style can fit a 24.5" calf. With a luxurious waffle-knit pattern, these socks will be a great addition to your sock drawer. Sock features include:
Comfort top band
Clima Fresh system which blocks bacteria growth and kills unpleasant odors
Clima Comfort system which keeps your feet naturally dry
Just completed 8 international flights, some 14+hrs long and the one time I didn't wear them, my ankles were achy and sore afterwards. I'm 100% sold on the benefits of wearing compression socks and will be buying another pair and a pair for my husband (I bought him cheaper socks but they don't compare!).
The wide calf sizing is true to size - I had no problems wearing these for almost 15hrs.
Thank you so much!

Awesome, December 8, 2016 By Kenneth J Mesa (Tamuning, GU)
Received my stockings as your shipping department predicted. My podiatrist was awed when it came in so quick. Since in Guam there are no resources to buy Big sizes stockings on island. Thank-you very much...
Wow, just as promised, November 1, 2016 By SusieQ (Sydney)
Having big fat legs, I really didnt think they would fit as comfortably as they advertised but wow, they fit, they are exactly as advertised!
VERY happy with item, easy to put on and off. Many thanks, I feel much better having 14hr flights now.
Best compression stockings, July 1, 2016 By Anonymous (Cincinnati, OH)
I have suffered from severe lymphedema in both legs for nearly 20 years, which is why I needed the men's size even though I am a woman. I used TED hose and similar compression stockings for most of these years. but they only provided some relief and my bad leg (the left) swelled badly above the ankle. These compression stockings are very different. The weave in them assures an even and consistent compression in my foot and leg from top to bottom. The first day I wore them, I moved my left leg the wrong way and my foot cramped, but now that I understand how they work I have no pain at all. I almost don't want to take them off at night when I go to bed! They are also sturdily made and should last me longer than my former compression hose.

This is my 2nd pair of compression stockings from Brightlife. These fit better in the foot area than the first pair (different brand). I would like another pair of these but in a 20-30 compression.

The socks work well cutting down on sore calves after a day of standing on a hard floor.
Mediven for Men Select 15-20 mmHg - Wide Calf, October 2, 2015 By Anonymous (Seaford, DE)
I first ordered these socks in a size 6 for my dad. He felt he needed to go up a size, so I ordered a size 7. He seems satisfied with the size 7. I've noticed his legs don't seem as swollen, which is a good thing. These socks were our last hope before serious action had to be taken. I'm hoping these socks will continue to work for him. We plan to purchase more. I'm happy I found this website and I'm glad that I found these socks for him. It's been hard because he's not a typical size person. So, if you're looking for a sock that's not for the average size, give these a try.
Excellent customer service and products!, January 28, 2015 By Brian
I ordered a pair to make sure they fit well over the size of my calf. It's a perfect fit, made out of high quality materials too! I then ordered an additional 3 pair. Excellent customer service, shipped my orders right away and kept me informed via email throughout my ordering process until it arrived to me. The compression stockings are very easy to put on and take off, and so comfortable to wear all day long. Makes my legs feel wonderful as I stand on my feet all day during work. I'm pleased with Brightlife Direct and the compression stockings! I highly recommend doing business here.
Great socks!, October 7, 2014 By Anonymous (Frisco, TX)
I have spent 2 years and a considerable amount of money trying to find good socks for my Dad. He is diabetic and his kidneys do not function well, and he has heart issues. His legs and feet are frequently swollen. I have had to buy extra large compressions socks to fit his legs. They were extremely difficult to get on, and were so long they had to be folded over at the top. Wearing them left lines all over because of the wrinkles left by extra fabric. My dad's podiatrist felt they were doing more harm than good, and he wrote a prescription for custom made stockings. When I found out they were $500 a pair and not covered by insurance, I was shocked. I searched the internet for socks for extra-wide calves and found Mediven. I measured Dad's calves and ordered and was really pleased with the socks. They are easy to get on and comfortable for him to wear all day. There are no lines of marks, and they are machine wash and dry.
