Who Can Benefit from the JOBST Opaque Compression Stockings?

These stockings have been meticulously crafted to meet the needs of any women wanting comfortable compression therapy. They are soft yet durable, provide effective compression, and closely resemble a standard pair of knee high fashion stockings for discreet and stylish wear.

Why Should You Choose the JOBST Opaque Compression Stockings?

  • Exceptionally soft and comfortable compression stockings
  • Suitable for casual or professional wear
  • Anatomically designed to fit comfortably against your legs
  • Broad knee welt stops the stockings from bunching or sliding down
  • Double-covered inlaid yarns mean the stockings can be put on and take off easily
  • Yarns are highly durable at the same time, and the stockings have a reinforced foot area
  • Opaque colour helps to cover blemishes and uneven skin tone on the legs

How Do the JOBST Compression Stockings Work?

Venous issues like lymphoedema can develop when blood does not circulate around your body effectively, and instead starts to pool in your arms and legs. To effectively relieve such symptoms in your legs, JOBST compression stockings apply gradient compression starting from your upper legs down to your ankles, prompting the movement of blood.

What Colour Are These Stockings?

These stockings are supplied in a classic, solid black colour. This range also includes a number of other colours including navy and sand.

Why Should I Trust the JOBST Opaque Stockings?

The JOBST Opaque stockings have undergone strict quality controls and testing during their production. They also adhere to the guidelines of the International Lymphoedema Framework, you can be sure that they will be able to effectively alleviate your symptoms.

Is It Easy to Put the JOBST Opaque Stockings On?

Compression stockings can be tricky to put on as they are made to fit so tightly against the skin. However, due to their soft yarns and natural cotton composition, the JOBST Opaque Stockings can be slid on and off with minimal fuss.

Are The JOBST Opaque Compression Stockings Comfortable?

These compression stockings are designed to provide outstanding comfort, so you'll be able to wear them for extended periods with no trouble at all. Their durable yarns have a soft, stretchy feel, and their anatomical design ensures they fit snugly around the contours of your leg. On top of this, they are also moisture-wicking, so you won't have to worry about perspiration or odour.

What Kind of Grip Top Do These Stockings Have?

The JOBST Opaque Stockings have a plain knitted top band for maximum comfort and a reduced risk of irritation. However, some people may still prefer a textured grip-top like a dotted silicone band as it holds the stockings in place more securely and eliminates the need for any stocking glue.

Which Level of Compression Do I Need?

These stockings have a compression level of RAL Class 1, meaning they apply 18 - 21mmHg of gradient pressure to your legs. This is considered a light level of compression, suitable for treating milder conditions like chronic fatigue and pain, or for wear during travel. If you aren't sure which compression level you need, speak to your doctor.
