How to Measure for Compression Socks & Stockings

Getting the correct size in compression can be tricky - but we'll show you how!

Every brand of compression stockings has its own, unique sizing. A medium in one brand isn’t a medium in a different brand. Measuring properly is the most important step. That's why we have detailed instructions with helpful tips, below.

  • It is important to measure first thing in the morning. This is because your legs swell during the day (even if you don't notice, they do). 
  • Don't have a tape measure? Download and print one here.

Once you have your measurements:

  • Check the size chart for the specific product you wish to purchase. This will ensure you get a garment that fits properly. Size charts are located on every product page, right under the product image

or

  • Enter your measurements into our Size Finder to get product and size recommendations instantly!
