Compression Stocking Comparison Chart

Compression Socks / Compression Stocking Info

I often get asked a lot about compression socks and stockings.  It is so hard to tell what you are getting just by an online image – and there is a huge difference from one product to the next.  Here are some descriptions of brands that I recommend (and wear personally) that will hopefully help you make the best choice for you and your budget.  

You will need to find the correct size for yourself.  The examples below are to describe the style itself.  Follow the link to the product style and then choose your correct size, compression class, and color.*

(*Note:  For the best fit and compression class go to a Certified Lymphedema Therapist who does fittings.  I’ve written a guide to help you choose the right compression socks / stockings if that isn’t an option.)

Length & Open or Closed Toe

Similar to pantyhose, but a bit thicker.  They are opaque (flat) with a bit of shine if the light hits them just right.

Similar feeling to tights worn by young girls.  Thicker than panty hose, but not as thick as many compression hose.

Compression stockings appropriate for athletic wear.  They feel like synthetic sports socks and have a cushiony sole.

Fun and lively compression stockings that are thin and fashionable. Available in multiple colors and patterns.
