Shopping Basics

With more than 65 years of experience, JOBST is a global leader in venous and lymphatic disease management. They develop and manufacture compression therapy products used to manage varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, chronic venous insufficiency, venous leg ulcers, lymphedema and lipedema.

With more than 150 years of history with compression garments, Sigvaris group is committed to helping people feel their best with high-quality and innovative offerings in medical compression therapy every day, worldwide.

Compression stockings put graduated pressure on the legs to help increase circulation and venous return. The amount of pressure the stocking applies to your leg at your ankles is the greatest and then becomes lighter as you move up the leg.

Ready-to-wear and standard off-the-shelf compression garments do not require a prescription. However, medical compression garments require a doctor’s script and is needed at checkout.

Our sizes are based on your ankle, calf, thigh, hip and leg length measurements, and shoe size depending on the style of stocking. In order to choose the right size for you go to the How To Measure page.

If you are between two sizes, you should choose the size that suits the circumference of your ankle the best. It is not unusual that the foot of the stocking is either too large or too small, but you will not be able to feel this once you take the stocking on. If the foot is 3 sizes larger or smaller than the size you normally use, try stockings with an open toe.

SS is Small Short

SL is Small Long
