Tip 1. You need to choose which compression is best suited for you. Use our
Compression Guide to determine the appropriate compression.
Tip 2. Still unsure? You can always use our Shop By Condition tool to help you locate
products designed to treat your specific condition(s).
Tip 3. Know what compression you need? Use our Shop By Compression tool to
narrow down our product offering to those products suited for you.
Tip 4. Why not learn more about the brands we offer? Visit our manufacturer's page and
click on a manufacturer to learn more about them and to view the products they
have to offer.
Tip 5. Each product listing on our site has a details & sizing section found below the 'add
to cart' button. Be sure to click on the sizing icon to view the appropriate sizing
chart. With graduated compression stockings (support hose), it is important to
have an accurate fit. This improves the efficacy and comfort of the product.
Tip 6. Measure your legs in the morning. The goal is to prevent swelling. Many people
with venous (circulatory) disorders experience increased swelling as the day
progresses. Since we are looking to take a preventive step, it is important to take
your measurements first thing in the morning BEFORE the swelling begins.
Tip 7. When in doubt, ask. We have certified fitters available for consulation. They have
been trained to assist you in selecting an appropriate product. For further
assistance including personal product recommendations, please contact us and will
will gladly offer our insight.
