Tuesday, 6 October 2015

It’s vital that you get the right compression stockings size for your legs. Wearing the wrong size compression stocking can be very uncomfortable and can make them even more difficult to put on. Not only that, but wearing compression stockings in the wrong size can actually make a condition worse.

To help make finding the right size compression garments easier, we here at Compression Stockings have put together a collection of sizing charts and tables for a range of Sigvaris compression garments. All sizes are in centimetres.
