Jobst, Sigvaris, Juzo - Oh My!

How do I know which is the right manufacturer for me? Most people buy the brand their doctor tells them to buy. While the selection from most brands have a lot of similarities in compression levels and styles, the sizing and range of products can vary widely from one manufacturer to the other. Our Buyer's Guide can help.

Sizing

First thing to know - every brand has a different size chart. If you wear a Small in Jobst, it might be a Size 2 in Juzo. Be sure measure first and check the size chart on each product page. Start here and learn how to measure. Then, check out our Size Machine to find a product that fits your measurements.  Just click the garment style you want, enter your measurements, and the Size Machine gives you a list of items that fit.
