Mediven Plus opaque compression pantyhose, are made from soft and comfortable Medi-Silk yarn. The opaque fabric conceals blemishes, varicose veins, and scarring. Available with an open or closed toe, and in regular or petite lengths. Mediven uses advanced computer knitting and 14 different sizes to provide you with the most accurate graduated compression.
This stocking provides 20-30mmHg of gradient compression, which helps improve blood flow, prevent edema (swelling), and reduce the discomfort caused by moderate to severe varicose veins. Woven from 75% nylon and 25% spandex in the USA.
Measure around your ankle at the narrowest point, normally just above the ankle bone. Don't have a tape measure? Download one here.

Measure the distance from the floor to the bend behind your knee..

Continuing excellent solution to a lifelong problem!, November 1, 2013 By Margaret (Glasgow, UK)
Having suffered badly from varicose veins since the age of sixteen, and following many years of (i) only partly successful surgery and (ii) not at all successful over-the-counter so-called "support tights", finally at age 65 I hit upon Mediven compression tights Grade 3 (please see earlier review).
These solved my problem excellently for the next fifteen years, but now that I'm eighty and my arterial circulation is less efficient I have been finding the Grade 3 tights make my feet feel cold and also, owing to their 30-40 mm compression level, they've become somewhat difficult for me to put on in the mornings.
On the advice of my orthotist I have switched over to these Mediven Opaque Grade 2 tights which, apart from having a (slightly) lower compression level at only 20-30 mm Hg, are in all respects identical with the previous Grade 3.
They are a perfect fit, they are extremely comfortable AND they look good, covering the (many) blemishes resulting from surgery. They meet my needs in all respects and I warmly recommend them to anybody, of either gender, with problems similar to mine.
