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 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?

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 silicon 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.
