Mediven Thigh High 20-30
I ordered these Mediven Thigh High 20-30 stockings as replacements for some very old ones that wore out that were purchased elsewhere. These replacements seem to be high quality like the originals. These replacements differ in that they are the "no silicone" version, which I guess refers to the gripping border at the top of the stocking. Because these new ones don't have that gripping border, they slide down more easily and would need a garter if I walked around with them. For my use, I am at home mostly sitting, so I think I prefer these "no silicone" stockings because they let the tightness

I chatted online with brightlife
I chatted online with brightlife before ordering these hose. I stated the woman's 7 was too tight for me. I ask if the mens was wider. Response was to order a size 6. I said no if 7 is too small 6 is going to be smaller. I was then assured the 7 was larger than the 7 petite. On your recommendation I ordered the size 7. They definitely are not larger only longer. So now I have two new pair of hose I cannot wear. The regular size 7 are even worse than the petite because if I get them on they cut into the back of my knees or wrinkle at the ankles. I have been your customer for many years. I will

Great stockings with great service.
The Mediven is a high quality product. It is important to order the correct size. On my recent order I ordered a petite size and it made a big difference in how well the stocking controlled the swelling of my ankle and leg. I also ordered a size III instead of IV. My measurements didn't match the guide exactly so I decided to try the smaller size. So far I think it was a good decision. I was happy with the ease of ordering and the customer service of the company. I have worn compression stockings for years. I always use the donning gloves and the nylon sock to apply the stocking.

Amazing Compression Stockings
I have been purchasing Medivan calf compression stockings for years. I have tried many other brands and have always had issues with them falling down. Medivan has been amazing and have always done an incredible job staying up and doing their job. The quality is amazing and last for years. I would recommend them over any other company's compression stocking. For your legs has always been reasonable, has good service and is usually cheaper then most other companies. I have been purchasing Medivan compression stockings from them for years. Highly recommend stocking and company!!

MEDIVEN STOCKINGS
I have been wearing Mediven stockings for years. I cannot live without them. They are quality made, and a good fit overallexcept. . . . I have extra swelling just above my ankle so they have a tendency to bunch up at the ankle, causing swelling above the ankle and in the top of my left foot and ankle. If I don't make adjustments throughout the day by pulling the bunched area in the ankle crease, and pull it out toward the toe to take the crease out of the ankle area . . . eventually it starts to throb and ache. But these are still rhe best stockingvI've ever bought and I've been wearing them f

Ive been wearing Mediven open
Ive been wearing Mediven open toe compression stockings for several years now, theyre my favorite. I wear the waist high ones for moderate bilateral leg lymphedema, and they keep my legs in good shape. Theyre comfortable (the waist band can be unbuttoned and let out if needed) and hold up excellently they hiked, the gym, and dog-walking. I use Juzo reinforced paper donning socks and SAS Safety 650-1001 Dyna Grip Exam Grade Gloves, with textured surfaces, to grip. Most of the time, people dont notice Im wearing stockings. These are the best Ive tried, and I buy 4 pair every two years.

With the cost of compression
With the cost of compression socks its a bummer when you buy some that just don't feel right. I have tried other brands of compression stockings and always come back to Mediven. They are the most comfortable socks, give great support without the tiredness I get from some compression socks around the ankle. The comfort vitality are so supportive, I love wearing them! From now on, I will only order this brand for my compression stockings. Also ordering them through "For Your Legs" website is easy and always is a fast delivery. Very satisfied.

I find that these support hose are not as good as they use to be. When I ordered my last pair on 28 May I mentioned that the toeless hose were not as good at the toe end as they use to be. May be you have changed your suppler!! I only use the hose on one foot. I tried one straight away and there was very little difference to the one that I had been using. I hand wash them every evening and dry them in the bathroom. On the medi card there are the following numbers if this is any help to you. 2024-09-03 Lot 7456152 2021/246. I did register this product.

Great, well made stocking
I've been wearing a Jobst Relief stocking purchased elsewhere and after 2 months, it's already stretched out. This one might be more expensive, but it feels so much better made. The material just feels studier. It's very difficult to get on, even with the little sock they give you, and difficult to get back off, but it feels fantastic and it stays up all day. The only downside for me is really a body shape issue. The top band feels a little snug around the top of my thigh and when I stand up, the top quarter inch flips down. Unfortunately, the body adhesive doesn't seem to help with this issue

My legs are happy with Mediven
I have been wearing this style of Mediven stocking for many years. The knit composition of the stocking is durable and maintains compression for at least five years. The open toe design in use with the enclosed sleeve makes it easy to put the stocking on. The stocking also stays in place, not sliding down with activity. For Your Legs provides prompt delivery service. FYL is also very responsive to order inquiries. I will continue to wear Mediven and order from For Your Legs.

I am a tall person, but it's all in my torso. Needless to say, my legs are short; my calves are even called petite in sock world. These are the only support knee highs that fit me to a T. They are comfortable pulling on, and wear well throughout my day. They appear to be well made, too and stand up to a washing machine. I do hang them to dry; they dry overnight. I would love to have these in more colors/patterns, but the black is a good standby. Highly recommend!

Good price good service
15-29 size VI. Open toe natural. These are being word by man 80 years of age to swelling. They are comfortable to wear. Glad we purchased the open toe style. I dont think we would be able to get the full foot style on his foot. The silky foot cover that you pull out of the sock, through the toe hole after the socks are on helps tremendously. The cost was much less than the local drug store charged. These were out of stock when I placed the order. I was notified of this when I ordered. They arrived quicker that I expected.

Comfortable and great fit
When I visited a local medical supply store I was measured and sold a pair of Mediven Open Toe Compression stockings. They never did feel right. Took my own measurements, called For Your Legs and got the right sized stockings. These fit and I have four pairs. I now get proper compression around the ankles as well as my calves and the stockings have been very satisfactory. Now the question is, how long will they last. Haven't tried Jobst but would like some feedback on longevity.

I am very happy with my support stockings ! I had been purchasing them from a pharmacy until now . Every time I went to the store to purchase a new pair, I had a problem ! If I found the right size , I could not find the right shade or right shade, wrong size. Due to Covid restraints I decided to go online and order them and it was so easy and the delivery was great.

I found these socks several years ago and I have bought nothing else since! They are so comfortable and feels soft on my skin, yet they have even compression that has been so helpful with my diabetic neuropathy. I have worn them and worn them and they don't wear out very easily. They are such a great product and well worth the money. I have even asked for them for Christmas presents! I cannot recommend these highly enough and would urge you to give them a try if you have not already!

This is the first time
This is the first time that I have purchased open-toed stockings and as I feared, they ride back on the foot. I would return them for another close-toed pair of stockings, but it's not worth the hassle. The main reason I bought a pair to try is the closed-toe stockings tend to pull tight on my toes. I have worn this brand (Mediven Comfort, 15-20) for over ten years. I wish that Mediven would offer a "longer foot" in addition to the regular/longer calf size. Mediven wears well and I have not had a run in them for many years.

I mistakenly wrote my praises
I mistakenly wrote my praises of this type of stocking when asked to review the Comfort Vitality stockings but have been unable to edit and correct the comfort vitality review. The latter type of stockings have a rubbery (silicone?) band at the top to keep them up. That is uncomfortable on my legs. The (simply) Comfort stockings are fine. They stay up without the rubbery band and have enough give in the toe area to be comfortable for my toes even though they are not balloon-toed.

I have the Mediven Comfort with toes and the Mediven Sheer toeless and love them both. My physician recommended them and this is the first time in over a year that my ankles are not swollen. They are comfortable and easy to put on. I put them on every morning and I think this is the key - consistently. I measured carefully before ordering and they fit perfectly. The toeless are my favorites so I will be ordering extra pairs of those. I love them!

Two pairs last about six months
I usually buy these because of the band. It is a dot band and I have issues with the bands giving me a rash. So, I hate them. I f-ing hate them. I have to buy two new pairs almost every six months for the same reason. They start rolling and cutting off my circulation. I don't understand why these hose have good reviews. They loose their compression in just months. It doesn't matter how much you wash the band or how you wash them(i.e. soap, rubbing alcohol, both) within a few months they start to roll. Oh, they start out great!!! And DO NOT put compression hose in the washer. The seam at that t

I ordered these for an elderly lady at church who is on a limited income. She was wearing the knee high version and her knees were swollen twice their size. I told her if she could get her doctors approval, I would order her a pair of thigh high and see if it made a difference in her knee pain. She's been wearing them about 3 weeks now and absolutely loves them!! The swelling and pain in her knees is now tolerable. She called me a couple of days ago and asked me if I would order her another pair in size 4. She wants to see which size works the best for staying up.

Good quality compression stockings
I have worn thigh high compression stockings for over 20 years. I have mostly worn the Mediven brand and like them best. You do have to treat the stockings properly according to the instructions for washing and donning/doffing. With proper care, the stockings will last several months before needing to be replaced. I use 3 stockings every 3 months rotating the stocking every 3 days.

Comfortable
They fit good, eventhough they are very hard to put on. I guess that is how they are suppose to fit. I got the toeless stockings thinking I may be wearing them with sandels and I found that after I put them on if I roll the toe part over once so it is in my arch it does irrate the ball of my foot. I didn't do this until I had been wearing them for a couple of weeks. I have a very irrated ball of my foot. I am putting socks over these to wear with my snow boots. I also found if I roll it down it easier to put on my wool socks and it doesn't bunch up the compression stocking under my sock. The t

Poor quality, too small, requesting full refund.
I have purchased Mediven compression stockings for about 10 years and have been very happy with the stockings that I have received before. however, this time, you completely changed to product, and at the size, even though I double-checked to make sure I sent in the exact same size as before. I tried on a pair, and they cut my skin, they were to tight. Needless to say, I will be returning them for full credit. I may not purchase from you again, because I don't know if I can trust you to send me the right stockings.

GOOD CHOICE, GREAT FIT
Top silicone wide band keeps knee highs up which is great. The VII size, wide calf, fits just fine. Color is not beige, more like dark brown. Prefer the beige but fit is really good I will tolerate the darker color. Knee highs go in washer but MUST be hung up to dry because of silicone band. No big deal. PRICE IS STEEP I MUST ADMIT.

I found the open toe knee high compression stockings not to be as hard to put on my calves as I originally thought they would. Opted for the natural color instead of black. The "slipper" aid that was included with the stocking is a tremendous help. The only problem I have is remembering to laundry the stocking every night! Thank you for a well made product that fits my short, heavy calves! Susan Orphey

My favorite style
I wear these in summer with sandals and flipflops, and with socks, leggings and tights in colder months. Open toe style is very versatile. The calf length is a good fit, and is easily adjusted to fit without bunching. I machine wash on cold or warm, and dry on a rack. They are a great value and hold up well through many washings.

I love these! I have been waeing these particular support hose for years! I work 10-12 hour shifts mostly standing and these save my legs. I don't feel fatigued and they don't slip. I buy 4 pairs a year and when they start to slide during my shift i know its time to swap them out. The open toe is my favorite! I wish size VI came in ebony black! The nude is really ugly!

So thankful that Ames Walker carries this brand, which has a size for very thin legs/ankles. I used to wear Ames Walker brand but had a second blood clot while wearing them.

Comfortable
Great fit. I purposely bought them without the silicone top, because I've had problems before with stockings with thick bands at the top squeezing too tight. These were perfect. They do slip down a bit throughout the day, but not too much, so it's not a problem for me. I also like the stretch in the fabric around the toes. It keeps them from slipping up my foot when I walk.

I've tried 5 different compression socks and this one was the absolute best: best fit - I needed a petite size with thick calves, best at doing it's job to make my legs feel good all day long, best at holding up in the laundry (I do hang to dry).

Mediven is my "go to"
Mediven is my "go to" brand of compression stockings. They make my legs feel good, control the swelling and, with the silicone dots, stay up on my legs all day!!! They are very supportive, yet reasonably easy to put on with my bare hands every morning. My only disappointment is that the beige color is darker than I would like, but when I tried other brands with a lighter beige color, I am disappointed and go back to the fit and feel of the Mediven beige pair.

Mediven Grip Top Knee Highs
I would have rated these five stars if the body of the leg (the area from the knee down to the ankle) were about an inch shorter. These are clearly petite size but I am barely 5 tall and that extra amount in the stocking makes them bunch up a bit around my ankle which is not good for circulation. However, in spite of that , the grip top ensures that they stay up and the compression (20-30%) makes my legs feel great. I have been wearing Sigvaris grip top knee highs and I think these are actually better. I wish, though, that the company would make a lighter weight pair that would be dressier and

Questionable Quality
I purchased 2 pairs of these for my husband. Of the 4 total stockings, 3 were fine, but my husband's thumb went right through the material of the 4th one the first time he went to pull it on. These things are very tough/durable, so I feel like there was a weak spot in the material that allowed this to happen. He has been wearing compression stockings for a long while, so knows how to properly don/doff them. The other pair has been fine, so I can't help but wonder if there is an inconsistency in the quality maybe. Regardless, they are too expensive to tear on the first use.

Good stuff
Easy Slide which comes with support hose makes hose easier to put on. If feet are clean & dry, it is not even necessary to pull back the toe area of the hose to remove the Easy Slide. For those with small feet, just be sure heel is barely covered by Easy Slide & fold extra material at front of toe before stuffing into hose. After pulling hose up, Easy Slide can be pulled out from the extra material at the toe without pulling hose back toward heel as per instruction booklet....So this review is supposed to be about the Medi Comfort Knee High, 20-30mm Hg.

Good fit, good swelling prevention.
OK, not great fit. By the end of the day they are usually at or below the calf muscle. Feel good, but toes can feel a little tight, which is probably normal for support stockings. The swelling of my left ankle is reduced. Right ankle was not an issue. These are used primarily as a prevention issue, and appear to be good for this purpose. At age 82 prevention has become the watch word. I'm a new support stocking user. NDB

Slippping medical socks
I have had to wear these socks for over 30 years so it's not like I just started. Over the early years these socks stayed up and didn't slip downward. When I ordered these socks from this company a few years back I was worried this might happen. Now I have ordered again trying to get the best deal and be able to afford them. I noticed the first pare slipped down and I thought well maybe when I wash them it won't do that. They don't feel the same texture and I have gotten this same one for years.

These are great stockings. I have worn them for many years and they have remained consistent in sizing and quality. I find they wear very well and I protect them with the recommended washing solution. I also own enough pairs that I can rotate the wear, which I think helps them last.
