It has a texture exterior for enhanced stiffness and pressure application, yet is still easy to slide on and off over the silk liner.
How Does the Zipper Aid Donning?
Compression stockings can be difficult to fit over the leg due to their tight fitting nature.

For your preference, there is a choice of zipper on the left or right side.
