Sigvaris 842P, February 3, 2017 By Anonymous (milwaukee, WI)(Verified)
I purchased the graphite compression stockings and I was very unhappy when I received them. In the color swatch the stockings looked more on the green side and when I got them I couldn't even tell the difference between those and my black compression stockings. I was hoping for more of a significant difference between them. Especially with paying over $100 for them.
not what I expected, January 21, 2017 By Anonymous (Wichita, KS)(Verified)
after 1 wearing a heel pocket ripped at the seam, the other heel pocket was starting to do the same thing, measurements were all correct, looks like assembly flaw
COMFORTABLE, October 9, 2016 By Jeanne G. (Phoenixville, PA)(Verified)
These compression hose are by far the most comfortable I have ever worn. What makes the difference is the ability to chose short (s) or long (l) when ordering small, medium, or large. I am 5'7" and weight 120 pounds. I need the extra length so I order a ML. The fit is perfect and I have no extra material sagging or grouping around my thighs making the hose uncomfortable. These are a little costly but are very durable and last a long time without pulls or runs.
Perfect fit, sturdy, excellent compression, July 23, 2016 By Lynn (Los Gatos, CA)
These are my go-to compression hose (20-30mm). I love the open toe because I can wear sandals or socks over and shoes comfortably. Excellent compression, never fall down, lasts with care (hand wash and dry every time worn) for months. Even handles cat claws from jumping in my lap.
Jeanne, December 12, 2015 By Jeanne (Phoenixville, PA)
These are by far the best compression hose I have ever come across. I love the matte finish and they are very comfortable due to the fact that I can order a size that fits just right. I am 5'7" and need a (long) length. No more extra material hugging my thighs too tightly. Very comfortable!!
These Pantyhose are Great, November 30, 2014 By Jamie (London, CA)
At the vein clinic I was told I could wear these pantyhose instead of the 842P thigh High stockings. Not sure how to rate these because it's the first time I have ever wore pantyhose. All I know is that they offer the same compression as my stockings but I don't pull these up like I do with the stockings.
Sigvaris Pantyhose, April 25, 2014 By Anonymous (Denver, CO)
I really like the fit and look of these as they look like tights, not compression stockings. I have a pair of every color.
work great seems comes apart too easy, March 11, 2014 By Kristi (cantonment, FL)
I like the feel but the waist band is too tight around the middle of day you want to cut it off you. I hate the waist. I hate that more the 3 pair have split at the seem at the crotch.

They fit & are not too tight or hard to get on or off.
waist band too tight, October 23, 2013 By Anonymous (HO HO KUS, NJ)
I am a fairly skinny woman and the waist band is so tight, it is uncomfortable and unsightly depending on the outfit - I actually took them off the last time I tried them on to put on an old pair of Mediven which fit perfectly. I cant say though that I found a recent pair that fit so well. still looking.

I like the texture opacity and the softness of the Sgivaris 842P but found the waist band to be way too tight. I ordered the large just for that reason - more waist room at the risk of not adequate compression.

I also purchased Sigvaris Access before which I am very satisfied with. Both are the same size but Soft Opaque feels like it is not tight enough. I didn't like it much.

Like the opaque finish. The waistband is fairly tight which becomes irritating toward the end of the day. The fit is good otherwise. Really liked the color.

I am very pleased with the Sgivaris 842P soft Opaque Pantyhose 20-30mmHg. They are soft and give very good support. They are much easier to put on then the other brand that I tried. I did use the donning gloves along with the great instructions included in the package.

The hose are soft and almost a perfect fit. Once on they are quite comfortable .

I recently developed veinous insufficiency and a DVT; I stand for 6-12 hours at a time either during office hours or in surgery. My physician recommended compression hosiery which lead me to your web site. I have tried several types of hosiery but this Sigvaris line is the most comfortable and come in a nice color selection. These may well be career saving. Your excellent service is also much appreciated.
