How Do the Sigvaris Stockings Work?

How Easy Are These Stockings to Put On?
Compression stockings can be a little difficult to put on as they are made to be tight-fitting. To combat this Sigvaris Thermoregulating Stockings feature double-covered inlaid yarns that improve comfort and allow them to glide on and off with ease.
Do These Stockings Have a Grip Top?
These stockings are available with either a sensinnov or a knobbed grip-top, or without any grip top at all. This version is free from any grip-top and may be preferred by individuals who find grip-tops irritating or uncomfortable.
How Do These Stockings Protect My Skin?
Certain materials used in clothing can feel harsh against the skin, or trigger irritation and allergy. To guarantee comfort and skin safety, these stockings are made without any latex and ensure only the soft cotton interior comes into contact with the wearer's skin.
How Do These Stockings Regulate Temperature?
There's nothing worse than overheating under too many layers in summer, or getting cold legs in winter. For versatile wear in both cold and warm conditions, these stockings have a cotton interior that helps to evaporate moisture for a cooling effect, as well as a knitted construction which adds insulation.
Which Level of Compression Do I Need?
These stockings have a compression level of RAL Class 1, which equates to 18 - 21mmHg of pressure. This is a light to moderate level of compression and 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 (52%)
- Elastane (34%)
- Cotton (14%)
