How Easy Are These Stockings to Put On?

What Is the Benefit of the Knobbed Grip-Top?
These stockings are available with the choice of a lace grip-top or a knobbed grip-top. The benefit of the knobbed grip-top is that it holds the stockings more securely in place to prevent slippage, and has a dainty, polka-dot look.
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.
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.
