Compression stockings should not only do their job, but they should look great, be relevant, and look appropriate, too.The Certified Fitters at Support Hose Store will be glad to assist you and your friends in the ins and outs of compression stockings. As you know, carries all the major brands of support hose, so regardless of the size or height of the person we will be able to fit them in the correct stockings.

Most people own at least several different styles for different daily activities.

For instance, you wear a higher compression pantyhose for daily wear at the office, but you would love to have a pair of patterned trouser socks for periodic use, or use with your new fashion boots, or you need a pair for that special weekend coming up or the wedding you are attending. You can certainly wear a lighter compression for a few hours for something special. This is much better than going without compression – you’ll feel better physically and feel better knowing you have some compression. Say, someone typically wears a 20-30mmHg waist high pantyhose for every day wear. Most of the time, underneath pants, someone may wear a more durable opaque hose. You will also need to own at least one sheer pair for special occasions, and, of course, knee high socks, the athletic type, for wear with tennis shoes or boots. The athletic type knee high has a great release sewn into the top so they do not cut off circulation around the knee bend. There are several compressions available in the athletic sock. You may also want a pair of thigh highs for warmer days when you need more air circulation.

The combination of garments to meet your needs is endless. The bottom line is, there are more colors and fabrics available now than ever before in compression stockings. Support Hose Store wants you to know that we are here to help you meet all of your compression garment needs.
Thanks for shopping at SupportHose Store,

Do you have any suggestions on which stocking would be suit both conditions?

    • Hello and thanks for stopping to ask about the 20-30mmHg compression. We carry the four major brands and each of them are great!, but some are more appropriate for different people. If you are having problems with the fit of your socks, please call our toll-free number 1-844-472-8807 and speak to one of our Certified Fitters about what you dislike or like about the socks you are wearing and if there is a sock which would fit you better.
