How Easy Are These Stockings to Put On?

While compression stockings by their nature can be a little difficult to put on, the double-covered inlaid yarns used in the Sigvaris Essentials Stockings allow them to glide on and off. To prevent unwanted movement, these stockings feature a Sensinnov lace grip-top that holds your stockings in place until you're ready to remove them.

What Is the Benefit Of Open Toe Stockings?

You may prefer wearing open toe compression stockings if you want to avoid excess pressure in your toes. They are also more suitable for wearing open toe shoes and for use in hot weather as they improve air flow to and from your feet.

These stockings have a compression level of Afnor Class 3, which equates to 20 - 36mmHg of pressure. This is a moderate level of compression and but may not be suited for more severe conditions. If you are unsure of which level of compression you require, we strongly suggest referring to a medical professional.

What Materials Are the Stockings Made From?

  • Polyamide (71%)
  • Elastane (29%)
