New SHORT length Core-Spun compression socks are designed to fit a lower leg length of 16" or less. Getting the right length in a knee-high compression stocking is very important. If the sock is too long, it can roll down and wrinkle, both very uncomfortable. This is the only mild (10-15mmHg) compression sock available in a short length.
Core-Spun support socks look and feel like a soft, comfortable, everyday sock, with the added benefit of graduated compression. Designed for men and women. This compression level energizes tired, aching legs and feet, and improves leg health.
Core-Spun yarns are made by twisting fibers around an inner fiber creating one yarn. Therafirm uses spandex as the core yarn, and either X-Static Silver polyester in the black sock, or CoolMax polyester in white, on the outside. The result is a support sock that is soft, comfortable, really easy to put on, and cool. Made in USA. Black: 74% Polyester, 16% Nylon, 6% Lycra, 4% X-Static. White: 72% CoolMax Plolyester, 22% Nylon, 6% Lycra

I have probably purchased at least 2 dozen different types of compression socks for my mother over the last 2-3 years. She has severe pooling/swelling in her ankles, and has had some fairly serious health complications as a result.
Your socks are the first pair that FIT HER CORRECTLY based on her height/width of her calf. She is SO happy, especially since she doesn't have to wrestle to get them on or take a nap from exhaustion due to fighting with them to get the dern things onto her feet/lower legs.
That may sound a bit over the top, tho truly at 87 years old she was really struggling with a serious health condition and to have to wrangle with socks just furthered her frustration.
Many MANY thanks for a GREAT product. They're perfect! (In fact, she just told me this afternoon that she'd like to order a couple more pairs 'just in case' :))
Appreciate your great product. Thanks again!

Theses socks are fantastic. I have short legs and all the others bunched up and made marks on my legs. These are so comfortable. I will order more.
sock Sizing, July 9, 2018 By Anonymous (Strawberry Plains, TN)(Verified)
I purchased the same sock in 2 different sizes. The product guide shows the large size to be correct for me, but they are too small. This review is for the XL. This sock fits me much better & would advise purchasers, at least based on my experience, to buy one size larger than the sock manufacturer shows..

I felt the "AHHH" moment when I put these on. I have had trouble donning some others, but not these. They were easy to don and moved up the leg with no problem. Was able to wear them all day. I have short calves. They also fit perfectly without binding at the knee.

I LOVE these compression socks. The texture is great and they do not cut into like the hospital knees high compression's. I am a nurse and I wear them every day :)

Disappointing!, September 20, 2017 By Cheryl Hart (Ashburn, VA)
I ordered these travel socks for an overseas trip but made the mistake of not trying them on until the day I was leaving. I liked the thickness and comfortable feel of the socks but they wouldn't stay up. So I will be returning them for a different pair of socks. I have ordered previously and was very happy with what I got so I'll try to find the same brand.

Finally, someone makes a SHORT compression sock! Thank you Therafirm! For 2 years I wore socks and stockings that were too long for me. They drove me nuts! Now I have socks that fit, don't roll down or wrinkle. I really enjoy wearing my socks now. Thank you, BrightLife for adding these socks to your inventory.

I am 5'1" and these socks are perfect for the length and the support comfort. Will be purchasing more of this product.
Great fit, May 9, 2017 By Anonymous (Glendale, AZ)
Being one of short stature (5'5") finding compression socks that are not too long has been a chore. I purchased some from a local supply store years ago but did not think to keep the packaging or write down the mfgr. We moved out of the area several years ago and the sock are starting to get pretty worn. I have two pair but only need one for my left leg so I have been rotating on a daily basis. I just received two pair of the Core-spun and so far they are living up to expectations. The length is right on the money and I get no bunching or pressure marks.

slides down, April 24, 2017 By Pat (Old Forge, PA)
I am of average weight. The socks slide down constantly. They are a nice soft sock, but no way useful for support. May be OK for someone with wide calf.
Just what I was looking for, March 28, 2017 By George Houser (Wakefield, RI)(Verified)
Before these support socks always caused a painful constriction just below and behind my knee. SHORT is the key, they ride low enough so that doesn't happen.

Calf height measured 16" so they should have fit. However, they did not come up high enough and kept sliding down. Comfortable sock, but not for compression.

I finally found the perfect sock to fit my petite-size mom. Using the measuring chart was easy and provided the exact type of sock needed. The fit is perfect - both length and amount of support. Thank you!

I have wide calf issues and I am also short. These were perfect! They fit my large-size calf and were the perfect length from the floor to the back of my knee. No bunching, comfortable and good support! Love them!
Disappointed, February 11, 2017 By L (Boca Raton, FL)(Verified)
Do not go by the picture! I did and was disappointed that they came up to my lower part of my calf. My fault, however, I will comment on that the band was very tight and I ordered the correct size, according to the chart. The socks rolled down constantly. Even my dr. said that they do not fit correctly. Returned the 3 paira.
