GOOD STOCKING, August 5, 2013 By Anonymous (East Aurora, NY)
THESE STOCKINGS ARE GOOD IN GENERAL. HOWEVER I WAS SENT THE WRONG KNEE HIGH. I WANTED THE ULTRA SHEER WHICH IS WONDERFUL...LIGHTER AND EASIER TO PUT ON WITH SAME COMPRESSION VALUE. THEY HAPPILY SENT ME THE CORRECT STOCKINGS.

Bought the Jobst Opaque Petite Knee Highs 20-30 mmHg black stockings and so far so good. I have worn them about 3 times now and I'm a bit concerned if they will last for the long haul. I've seen a pick (a tiny elastic strand) hanging loose from the bottom of them (bottom of my foot) and another one near the top band just below my knee. I don't know if this is normal to find picks or not but it makes me wonder if I'm going to start seeing more of these and then all of a sudden they will unravel or produce a run in them. Time will tell but so far so good. I also noticed that when my legs and feet swell while wearing the stockings a bulge appears around the ankle area. I thought these stockings were graduated and supposed to be tighter around the ankle than the calf but my legs/feet show differently. Maybe my edema is just that bad and the stockings are doing all they can. We'll see how things turn out after wearing them for another week or few. Shipping was fast customer service was very friendly and knowledgable about the product on the phone and the actual product was perfect condition upon delivery.
