How to put on stockings?

Wear your support stockings immediately after standing up until you go to bed for an optimal therapeutic effect. Make sure your leg has dried properly after showering before putting on the support stockings. The support stocking is easiest to put on a dry leg.

There are three types of support stockings: a knee stocking, a groin stocking and a panty. Check which type you have.

If your compression stocking is a knee stocking , go to step 2.1.

If your support stocking is a groin stocking, go to step 2.2.

If your support stocking is a panty , go to step 2.3.
