How Do the Sigvaris Stockings Work?
Conditions such as lymphoedema can occur when blood does not flow from your extremities as freely as it should. To combat this, Sigvaris Compression Stockings apply graded compression to your legs, which helps to encourage the flow of blood from your feet and legs.
What Colour Are These Stockings?
These stockings are supplied in the colour Black, which has a classic, dark hue. This colour is both discreet and smart, making the stockings suitable for numerous occasions.

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.
What Is the Benefit of the Knobbed Grip-Top?
These stockings are available with either a knobbed grip-top, or without any grip top at all. The benefit of the knobbed grip is that it can help prevent slippage during the day, and also adds an added element of style to the top of the stocking.
What Shoe Size Will These Stockings Fit?
This Maxi line is designed for those who find the standard Essential Thermoregulating stockings a little too tights around the foot section. They are ideally suited for those who wear UK shoe sizes 10 - 13 or who prefer to have more room in the foot area of their stockings.
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 which 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.

- Polyamide (52%)
- Elastane (34%)
