Knee highs are the most popular style of compression stocking. If you have swelling in your ankles, aching feet, or varicose veins in your calves, this is the style for you.
The top band of a knee high should be positioned 1-2 finger widths below the crease of your knee. To don properly, after positioning your heel in the pocket of the sock, pull the stocking up and position the top band below the crease of your knee. Smooth out any wrinkles with the palms of your hands.
Jobst, Mediven, Sigvaris and Juzo are the four major manufacturers of compression stockings. They all offer a wide variety of fabrics, options, and compressions. Allegro is our private label brand and very well priced. Made in the same North Carolina factories, but without the fancy packaging.
Opaque fabrics hide veins and blemishes, and are quite durable
Ribbed stockings are very durable too, available in cotton blends
Sheers are beautiful, many styles available with an open toe
An Open Toe is usually a personal preference, it does not affect compression
Sport/Athletic socks stabilize leg muscles and increase blood flow during physical activity
Wide Calf Styles are designed to fit larger than average legs, usually 18-24" in circumference
Silicone Top-Bands prevent knee highs from sliding down and rolling over
Petite lengths fit a leg length (knee to floor) of 15" or less
Socks for Truckers is our selection of knee highs that work really well if you have to sit for long periods of time
