I Don’t Need to Wear My Support Hose Any More?

I have so many customers e-mail me and tell me what good service we have provided them but, “I don’t need your support socks or support stockings any more”.  I know the daily drudgery of putting your garment on is not pleasant  but I accept it as a part of my life. I would be thrilled for them but, I know in most instances the problem has not gone away. The evil monster “edema” has in some way been hidden away. If you have had a vein stripping or venous closure, why did you get the varicose veins in the first place? Has that problem been eradicated or is it still present waiting to create more varicose veins?

If you bought stockings just for foot or knee surgery to keep the swelling down, has all the edema gone away or are you experiencing the edema on days when you are on your feet too long. The compression garments would be of great help to keep the edema under control on those really busy days.

If your physician requested you to wear 20-30mmHg compression, perhaps stepping back to 15-20mmHg compression would give your legs that little bit of extra support to keep them feeling great all day.

“Walk, walk, walk” is some of the best advice I can give you. Walking stimulates that calf pump that helps that blood get back to the heart. If you wear your support socks while you walk, that calf pump is enhanced. Walking also helps you maintain a healthy weight which keeps your legs healthy.

Let us help you find a way to put your support hose on

Your day does not have to start with struggling to put on your support stockings

If you are still struggling getting the compression socks or compression stockings on, take a look at our stocking donners and doffers. Support Hose Plus has stocking donners for everyone! Be sure to watch our website…our most popular donner, the Doff N’ Donner will be back soon!

So get those support stockings or support socks out of the dresser drawer and get them on your legs and get moving.

Please call one of the SupportHosePlus.com Certified Fitters for assistance with the selection and ordering of stocking donners.

  1. Good morning Vanda,

    I have enjoyed your service, sale prices, and stockings. I am an “on and off again” wearer, meaning every day for a long period of time, and then some time to have a bit of freedom from them. My only problem with them is that my great toe nails get ingrown, and I think from the daily long time stockings wear. (I did had an umbilica hernia repaired that made pulling them on easier.) I’ll be back again for more in the future. My last three pair are not that old.

    Thank you for writing and your concerns shared.

    • Hi Anita,
      Thank you for sharing. Perhaps some of our open-toe stockings would give your toe some relief. If you do not opt for the open-toe (they do tend to work up the foot), then pulling out on the toe box of the stocking several times a day is a must to give the great toe more room.

  2. What you call a “JOBST Stocking Donner”, my vascular surgeon called a “Butler”. I have two, one for daily use and one for back up. I am 71 years old and wear my stockings daily and walk, walk,walk.

    Thanks to you and Dr. Ara Pridjian M.D.

  3. Why not recommend the silicone for those who need help getting their garments on.

    • Hi Linda,
      We do recommend the Alps Silicone for donning. Somehow it was placed under “Lotions and Ointments” instead of “Patient Assistance”. We love this product. Please call one of our Certified Fitters at 1-844-472-8807 for assistance in ordering this product.

  4. I have one pair of thigh highs and one pair of full panty hose. I do not go a day without them and thank God for them. I can’t believe the difference in my legs when I don’t wear them. The heaviness, pain and swelling is very painful. With my compression hose there is NONE of that. Believe me when I say I will wear them every day. The only reason I don’t have a pair for every day is because of price so I will buy what I can when I can. Have a blessed day.

  5. Thank you, Vanda, for exploring a question that is on our minds and that we wan answered. You explored it thorough;y and it was very helpful.
