Size Chart:

  • All measurements should be taken on the bare leg, whilst standing (if possible).
  • Ensure that the tape measure is snug but not too tight.
  • Measurements should be taken when the leg is rested and not swollen. It is best to measure earlier in the day before swelling builds in the legs. Measurements taken later in the day after swelling is present may result in choosing a stocking size that is too large.


To determine if these are the right stockings for you, measure the circumference (b) of your ankle right above the ankle bone. Next measure the circumference(c) of your calf at the fullest part of the calf, and also measure the circumference (d) of your calf just below your knee, then measure the circumference of your upper thigh(f) and measure your upper tight near groin(g). Finally measure the distance (A – G) from a point just below you groin to the ground while standing.

Care Instructions:

The use of skin care products (such as skin creams, body lotion, or powder) as well as various skin types (such as dry or peeling skin) and hair growth may prevent the silicone band from keeping the thigh high in place.

To improve the performance of the silicone band under the above conditions, we recommend the following steps:

  • turn the thigh high stockings inside out before washing.
  • before the main wash, thoroughly hand wash the silicone band using a delicate fabric detergent. Concentrate on removing any lotion, powder, hair or other foreign material from the silicone.


Follow the "Application and Care Instructions" included in the garments package.

Wash gently with mild soap or detergent in lukewarm or cold water. Do not wring or twist. Rinse until water is clear. Roll in towel to remove excess moisture. Dry away from heat and sunlight.
