Allegro short length surgical weight knee highs are designed to fit a lower leg length of 15.5" or less. Available with a closed or open toe, and wide calf in beige only. The Allegro brand provides quality comfort and support identical to the famous brands that cost two to three times more.
Firm gradient compression of 20-30mmHg helps improve blood flow, prevent edema (swelling), and reduce the discomfort caused by moderate to severe varicose veins. It helps in recovery from sclerotherapy and other post-surgical procedures. Made from 80% nylon and 20% spandex in USA.
Best compression in any weather, December 27, 2018 By Anonymous (Franklin, WI)(Verified)
I started ordering the Allegro Surgical toeless knee highs last summer when the weather was above 50 degrees. These keep all your toes open to the air and free of sweat. I have ingrown toenails and found if the weather is too warm the style with closed toes would cause my toes to become irritated. These are the only compression stockings I use when I am at home which solved my toe problems and when I go out I wear the Allegro Surgical with toes so I can keep my legs and feet warm while they get the compression that my doctor wants. These Allegro knee highs have become the only ones I use. They have also helped the swelling so much that I have been able to fit in smaller sizes twice since the original ones I ordered in 2017.
Affordable Comfort, December 27, 2018 By Anonymous (Franklin, WI)(Verified)
The Allegro Surgical knee highs with the closed toes are my favorite for when I need to go out. They do the job my MD expects from compression stockings. At about one-third the price of the name brands, to me they are the best. Also, living in Wisconsin, they are more comfortable and keep your legs warmer than any heavy socks available. When the weather is warm I do find that your toes can become too warm but they would in any brand of compression stockings.

Really like these, perfect for my height. Just wish they came in some different colors.

These stockings were extremely difficult to get on. In fact, I was not able to get them on at all, ever. The fabric is very thick and does not give enough to hold open to even get my toes through. I was disappointed and will now search for a different pair on the BrightLife site.
Allegro knee highs, October 3, 2018 By Anonymous (Brevard, NC)(Verified)
I love the open toe allegro knee highs. It seems to last longer than the closed toe and they have them in 3X! The only con is they’re a little long and go above the knees so I fold mine down.
allegro surgical knee highs, October 1, 2018 By NANCY (cicero, IL)(Verified)
Absolutely totally satisfied with these!! Have edema in bothlegs. upon recommendation from my Dr. I appointment with the Jobst office in the hospital. They so called "fitted" me for the socks. Charged me $175.00. Took forever to get them. When I did get them they did not fit at all and they were prepackaged. Custom they were not!! Did not fit right at all. cut me in the ankle and top of calf. Total waste of money. Found Brightlife while searching the internet. Glad I did! Ordered them and received them within a week. They fit almost perfectly. The only problem was the top of the calf underneath my knee. Not bad, still very much wearable. Much more comfortable than the "custom" fitted ones I had before, and a lot cheaper! I will continue to purchase these as I need them. I order the short ones. They could make them a tad shorter to avoid the cutting in below knee. But other than that they are perfect!! Thank you Brightlife!!!

I have worn support hose for a long time but I have never had any that really fit like these. I am 4'10" and have a very large calf. These are so nice the closest fit I have ever had and it feels so good not to be having the top band cutting into my leg below my knee and having a big wrinkle around my ankle. XL short are perfect.
Exceptional Quality, September 28, 2018 By Mary (Medford, MA)(Verified)
These socks are a high quality surgical grade product that function the way they are supposed to. I am a short large woman and had trouble finding my recommended size. In fact, I had to exchange/return the first pair for a size larger because they were too small/tight. So plan accordingly when sizing, you may have to pick the next larger size than what the chart recommends. The sock provide excellent support and are comfortable. If your legs are fleshy versus muscular where the top band rests, the band could be snug.at that point. I can't say much more other than I like them very much and they work.
Size is Important, September 23, 2018 By Anonymous (Medford, MA)(Verified)
My experience is with these particular socks. They are high quality surgical compression socks. I find in my case, the sizing chart may be off. My leg measurements seem to require the next size larger than the chart recommends. Their Return/Exchange policy is very generous and I did get the right size.
Hard To Find, September 23, 2018 By Mary (Medford, MA)(Verified)
These are surgical grade compression socks and consequently are tight fitting. Possibly could have used a size larger (but there isn't none). However, they feel great once on (except for top band which tends to dig in). These were recommended for after my surgery and work well.
Finally!, August 30, 2018 By Linda (Cass City, MI)(Verified)
So glad to have found Brightlife Direct! I had been so discouraged not being able to find a compression knee-hi that really fit comfortably. Among several auto-immune diseases, lymphedema causes my one leg to be several inches larger than the other. I am also 4' 10" tall. Until now,when I ordered compression knee highs they would be too long and the top band would roll and cut into my leg and/or the foot would be so long I had problems with the length of the foot, even if I ordered open toe. I am so pleased with these! They stay in place and I do not have to keep adjusting to relieve them from cutting in and pulling them up. I will be ordering another pair so I can feel like a normal person wearing something that feels good.
The very best compression sock for wide calf, August 23, 2018 By Marilyn (ANTIOCH, TN)(Verified)
I'm so grateful, after many failed buys, to find these great socks. I have short legs but big calves and these are a perfect fit. PLEASE PROVIDE THEM IN BLACK FOR THE LARGE SIZE, WIDE CALF!!

Fantastic Customer Service, August 15, 2018 By Anonymous (Camden-Wyoming, DE)(Verified)
I've already done a survey emailed to me and returned it. But in lieu of your question: I had also had a question for Mark that he responded to (regarding whether I needed to purchase insurance). He responded very quickly, included the information that I should make sure to get a tracking number of my package I was returning. When I emailed him back, I included the following (I put it in blue):
Thank you, I will definitely get a tracking number.......... You know what???????????? Your customer service is the most AWESOME I have ever dealt with (I am 63 and shop online A LOT) ....... I'm sorry these stockings didn't work out for me but it was kind of a test for sizing, length, etc. for the 20-30 mmhg (that is why when I saw the length of the Allegro, I just folded them back up and put them in the package never even tried to try them on)........... but if I need to order any stockings, etc. that you carry........ your company will be first that I look to (I presently wear 15-20, but the leg vein doctor said that was ok but she wanted me to try the 20-30.......).......... But at least I know where I can get the Jobst Ultrasheer that I've been wearing for years, that has fantastic customer service and product! Thank you so much!!! - Karen
So I have been very happy with Mark's customer service......... I hope this helps.......... - Karen Graves
Great, August 13, 2018 By Sue Calanni (Jamestown, NY)(Verified)
The stockings are wonderful. They are a great quality and a wonderful price. If I had one thing to criticize it would be that the heel needs to be stronger.

bought 3 pair and perfect fit for my husband
Best Yet, August 10, 2018 By Rosanne (Franklin, WI)(Verified)
I have purchased the Allegro brand in different sizes as swelling has gotten less by use of them. These are the first open toe style I have bought after having an ingrown toenail problem so my M.D. suggested I try them. They are really great for your toes because there is no pressure at all on them. I really think they are best in the warm weather since that is the time of year your feet feel warm. I am very happy with every size Allegro I have purchased.
Totally Wonderful, August 10, 2018 By Rosanne (Franklin, WI)(Verified)
For those less than 5 ft. tall all sizes of the Allegro brand are perfect in length. They material seems to be getting softer and more comfortable. They are well made and I love them.

Have been wearing these for many years and they hold up great wash after wash. I love that they are now available in a short version.
Best compression stockings ever, August 3, 2018 By Marilyn (Antioch, TN)(Verified)
I have short legs and wide calves and these fit me perfectly. The only negative is that the wide calf version only comes in beige. PLEASE provide a black option.

Have used Allegro for years and now that they have short length knee highs, I get the best fit available.
Finally, a fit,, May 29, 2018 By Ann Howard (Walla Walla, WA)(Verified)
I’ve been trying this product in xlarge, because my measurements are in that size range, but the short was never short enough. Finally tried the large short and it’s considerably shorter, a good fit.
Soft., March 28, 2018 By Anonymous (St Joseph, MO)(Verified)
These are comfortable. I bought the short but they are still too long. I am 5’6” Are they available in an even shorter length? I have a very hard time finding them big enough for my calves and these are perfect for that just too long.
I like these stockings, March 25, 2018 By Anonymous (Minneapolis, MN)(Verified)
I have now tried several pairs of compression hose and socks and really like the Allegro brand. They are affordable, and come in the shorter length and wide calf that I need. Now if only Allegro would make the sheer stockings in the shorter length it would be perfect.
Also, I am very happy with the customer service at Bright Life and will continue shopping here.
