Wear and Care
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.
If you find that compression stockings are difficult to put on, please see our Donning Suggestions and Donning Aids.
