Testimonials You Can Trust

I was recommended compression socks during pregnancy by my doctor. I chose Sigvaris because my father-in-law has been using the products for many years and has been happy with them. Not only were the stockings really helpful in reducing the pain and swelling in my ankles and feet, but they also felt great. Like a constant, gentle massage! 🙂

I have spent so much money trying various brands of compression socks. I never really liked them. They make me feel hot and restricted. 2 years ago, a doctor asked me to wear Sigvaris. I was hesitant but gave it a try anyway. I can now say that I am very happy with them, I can finally feel a difference in my legs!

I am a chef so I need to stand for several hours a day. Every night, I used to feel severe discomfort, heaviness, and pain in my legs. I started wearing Sigvaris a few months ago and I see a massive difference! They make my legs feel light and energized!

What Are Compression Stockings?

Compression stockings are specialized hosiery garments that are designed to apply controlled graduated compression to the legs. The pressure is maximum around the ankle and it gradually and steadily decreases going up the leg. These garments are used for medical as well as therapeutic purposes when improving blood circulation and lymphatic drainage is required.

How Do Compression Stockings Work?

  • Support the veins and help blood flow back towards the heart.
  • Help prevent accumulation of blood in the lower legs and feet.
  • Help relieve pain and heaviness associated with venous disorders such as varicose veins.
  • Help relieve swelling and tiredness, making your legs feel light and comfortable throughout the day.
  • Improve lymphatic drainage.

The most suitable compression class for you depends on the seriousness of your medical condition. It’s advisable to seek guidance from a vein specialist in order to ascertain the appropriate compression grade for your situation. There is a diverse array of compression therapy products available in different levels of compression.

  1. Support: Support compression stockings enhance the well-being of your legs by boosting blood circulation. Designed for everyday wear, these stockings are suitable for running errands, prolonged sitting or standing and long-distance travel. Our skin-friendly cotton blend support stockings, known as Samson, provide just the right amount of comfortable compression to promote overall health. These stockings are an ideal choice for both men and women. Additionally, our Microfiber shades offer a range of stylish colours and designs specifically tailored as support stockings for men.
  2. Class 1 Compression Stockings: Applying a gentle pressure of 18-21mmHg, class 1 stockings provide mild graduated pressure to your legs. This is the first level in medical compression garments. This means that they provide the lowest level of compression in the medical range. If you are particularly concerned about economy class syndrome or have a family history of varicose veins or DVT, our level 1 medical compression stockings are an excellent option. These stockings are also offered in 2 fabric choices – cotton and synthetic.
  3. Class 2 Compression Stockings: These stockings feature graduated compression with a pressure range of 23-32mmHg. Class 2 compression stockings are typically recommended by your healthcare provider for varicose veins, thus making them aptly known as varicose vein stockings. However, this grade of compression is prescribed for other venous and lymphatic conditions as well.
  4. Class 3 Compression Stockings: Suitable for advanced medical conditions, these stockings are available in cotton, synthetic as well as natural rubber materials. They are used in the treatment of severe varicose veins, management of active and recurring venous ulcers, lymphedema, healing for post-surgeries, severe edema, etc.
  5. Compression Wraps: These are a great alternative to medical compression stockings. Designed with velcro straps, they are incredibly convenient to put on and remove. Moreover, they provide the flexibility to customize the compression intensity, offering options of grade 1, 2, or 3 within the same garment. By combining foot, calf, knee, and thigh wraps, you can achieve gradual compression for the full leg. These wraps are particularly beneficial for individuals with limited strength and dexterity, as well as patients who need to independently manage their treatment regimen.

Shop By Condition

  1. Stockings For Varicose Veins: Depending on the severity of your varicose veins, and with the guidance of your doctor, you can choose from a range of medical compression stockings offering compression levels of 1, 2, or 3. Wearing graduated compression stockings regularly can effectively alleviate symptoms such as swelling, pain, and discomfort associated with varicose veins.
  2. Venous Ulcer Stockings: Ulcer stockings are specially designed for individuals who have active venous leg ulcers. These stockings feature a specialized two-layer design. The understocking delivers class 1 compression, offering wound protection and enabling comfortable overnight wear. On the other hand, the overstocking provides class 2 compression and is made from natural rubber material, ensuring consistent compression stability throughout the day. When used together, these two stockings synergistically give class 3 compression.
  3. Stockings For Swelling: From support stockings to medical graduated compression stockings, we offer a wide range of solutions to help you manage and alleviate edema.
  4. Lymphedema Garments: Compression plays a crucial role in the management of lymphedema. The primary purpose of these garments is to assist in promoting the flow of lymphatic fluid, which helps reduce swelling, improve circulation, and manage the symptoms associated with lymphedema. We provide options such as arm sleeves, compression stockings and compression wraps variations designed to manage this condition.
  5. DVT Stockings: Compression stockings for DVT are designed to provide graduated pressure on the legs, helping to improve blood circulation and reduce the risk of blood clot formation. They can also help in managing swelling and discomfort associated with DVT.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. How Can Compression Stockings Help Me?

Compression stockings provide graduated pressure to the legs, thus improving blood circulation and lymph flow. These garments can offer a range of benefits to manage as well as prevent various medical conditions such as varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, venous leg ulcers, lymphedema and lipedema.
It’s important to note that medical compression stockings should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional. They come in different compression levels and sizes, and the appropriate type depends on your specific condition and needs.

Q2. What Does “mmHg” Stand For?

mmHg stands for millimetres of mercury. It is a unit of measurement used to measure the level of pressure in compression socks. So, the higher the pressure strength, the more compression it will provide to the legs. For example, when you see “23-32 mmHg” on compression stockings, it means that the pressure exerted by the stockings at the ankle ranges from 23 to 32 millimetres of mercury.

Q3. Does The Unaffected Leg Need To Wear Compression?

Compression stockings not only help manage venous and lymphatic conditions but also help prevent it. As a result, people often choose to wear compression stockings on both legs, even if only one leg is affected. This proactive approach can help reduce the risk of developing the condition in the unaffected leg and contribute to maintaining healthy blood circulation.
If you have concerns about wearing compression stockings on the unaffected leg, it’s advisable to consult your doctor. They can provide personalized guidance based on your medical condition and individual needs.

Q4. Can I Wear One Compression Stocking On Top Of The Other Instead Of Wearing A Higher Compression Stocking?

Layering compression stockings, one on top of the other, is generally not recommended as a substitute for wearing a single higher compression stocking. Layering stockings might result in uneven pressure distribution, potentially leading to discomfort, reduced effectiveness, and other issues.
It’s crucial to consult your healthcare professional before making any decisions regarding compression stockings. They can provide guidance on the most suitable compression level and the best approach to managing your specific condition.

Q5. What Is The Difference Between Anti Embolism And Medical Compression Stockings?

Anti-embolism stockings, also known as TED (Thrombo-Embolic Deterrent) stockings are primarily designed for patients who are at risk of developing blood clots or deep vein thrombosis (DVT). These stockings offer mild graduated compression. They are often worn by patients recovering from surgery or those who are bedridden.
Medical compression stockings are designed to provide a range of compression levels to address various medical conditions, including varicose veins, DVT, venous ulcers, lymphedema, and more. They promote blood circulation, reduce swelling, and manage symptoms related to these conditions. Medical compression stockings are used both as preventive measures and for therapeutic treatment.
