  • To ensure the life of your stockings, please see the care instructions


    Wearing Compression for the first time:
    The first few times you wear your compression garment you will notice the ‘squeeze’. It is OK to begin wearing your stockings gradually. Try wearing them for just a few hours the first day and then increase the number of hours each day until you can wear them comfortably throughout the day while you are up and about. Check your stockings periodically to smooth out any wrinkles as the fabric may move during the day. Remove your stockings before going to bed.


    Wearing Compliance:
    It is important to wear your compression garments everyday. Compression stockings manage an on-going problem. When you remove your compression garment the condition responsible for your symptoms is still there. See sizing charts here.

  • Care instructions for Jobst Stockings:
    Hand or machine-wash with warm water and mild soap or detergent. No chlorine bleach. Warm water rinse. Hang or lay flat to air-dry. May be dried in a dryer on low heat or delicate setting.


    Helpful Hints:
    • Remove rings and jewelry that could damage your garment
    • Use gloves (rubber or vinyl) to help position the garment on your leg
    • Make sure your skin is dry before putting on your JOBST hosiery
    • Avoid rolling or bunching the fabric as this will create too much pressure in specific areas
    • Apply a thin layer of cornstarch or powder to help the stocking (or sleeve) slide smoothly over your skin
    • Apply moisturizer to your legs (or arm) in the evening - not just before putting on your garment

    Special care for JOBST thigh high style hosiery:
    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:
    1. Turn the JOBST Thigh Highs inside out before washing.
    2. 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.
    3. Follow the "Application and Care Instructions" included in the JOBST Thigh High package.
    Replacing your Garments:
    The elastic fibers of your compression garment stockings will break down with wear. Proper care will increase the "life" span of your stockings, but you will need to replace your stockings about every 3-6 months depending on how often you are wearing them and how you are caring for your garment. As a general rule, if your garment becomes easy to put on, it probably needs to be replaced.
