Who Can Use the Sigvaris Class 3 Stockings with Grip Top and Open Toe?
The Sigvaris Traditional Stockings are particularly suitable for those suffering from more complex indications, where the higher degree of stiffness offered by the round-knit yarn can be helpful. The natural rubber offers medical-grade compression and containment for treating severe venous diseases, without compromising on durability or softness. The Sigvaris Stockings have a good level of elasticity and breathability for those who prioritise comfort, and the unisex design will fit both men and women.
The stockings are suitable for the following conditions and uses:
- Severe venous conditions
- Chronic oedema
- Prevention of ulcer recurrence

How Do the Sigvaris Stockings Work?
Venous 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 for your legs, which helps to encourage the flow of blood from your feet and legs. This graded compression is tightest at your ankles, and relaxes further up your leg, thereby promoting upward blood flow and reducing swelling.
What Colour Are The Stockings?
The Sigvaris Stockings are available in beige. To shop the various styles, please see our full range of Sigvaris Traditional Unisex Compression Stockings.
How Effective Is the Compression Provided By the Sigvaris Stockings?
The excellent strength-stretch ratio of the Sigvaris Traditional Stockings ensures that the stockings provide a highly-effective, medical-grade level of compression to your legs throughout the day. The unique yarn composition guarantees this pressure remains stable, and supplies a greater degree of stiffness than flat-knit garments. This can be particularly suitable to patients suffering from conditions such as lymphoedema.
Which Level of Compression Do I Need?
These stockings have a compression level of RAL Class 3, which equates to 34 - 46mmHg of pressure. This is a high level of compression and is suitable for more serious conditions. If you are unsure of which level of compression you require, we strongly suggest referring to a medical professional.
What Are the Advantages of the Open Toe?
The open toes of the stockings are ideal for those with foot swelling conditions or other issues like ingrown toenails, where the extra room and breathability can help prevent irritation. Open toes are also suitable for wear during the summer, where closed toe stockings might become overheated.
What Are the Advantages of the Grip Top?
The silicone dotted grip-top band on the thigh helps to prevent the tights from rolling down or losing their purchase on your legs.
What Materials Are the Stockings Made From?
- Polyamide: 70%
- Elastodiene: 30%
