What does gradient compression hosiery do?
Support Hose or graduated compression has often been recommended for use during pregnancy to help energize tired, achy legs and to help reduce and prevent swelling. True gradient compression hosiery delivers a controlled amount of pressure greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking promoting better blood flow to help energize tired legs and feet, improve circulation, and assist in the prevention of swelling. They are also ideal for individuals required to sit or stand for long periods of time.

For many women who have never worn compression hosiery before, putting on your new stockings can be a challenge as they fit more snugly. Compression hosiery has more resistance or compression than traditional pantyhose hose or stockings. Below are a few tips to help you put on your compression stockings.

1. Insert hand and grab stocking at top of heel pocket.
2. While still holding heel pocket, turn the top of stocking down towards your toes.
3. Open stocking and slide your foot in until toes and heel are positioned in place.
Knee-highs: Grasp the top of the stocking and pull it up over your ankle and calf. Position top of the stocking approximately 1" below bend of knee.
Pantyhose & Tights: With crotch in a snug, comfortable position, stretch the panty hose with both hands. Adjust waist band to preferred position either folded under the belly or pulled up and over the belly.
Once the garment is on check for the following:
1. The foot portion must fit the shape of the foot nicely. The stockings should have even compression or elasticity so that the sock takes on the anatomical shape of the foot without any discomfort or circulation obstruction. After donning the stocking, your foot shape should be consistent with that of your bare foot.
2. For footless tights, the bottom of tights should end at the ankle bone or the skinniest part of the ankle.
3. If pain, discomfort, or areas of binding occur, remove the stockings immediately.
