offers high levels of compression in fashionable designs. UltraSheer

distinguishable by most people.

hose uses elastic to create pressure that wraps your leg with graduating
support stemming from the ankle. This reduces swelling and increases
circulation. However, the elastic does not dampen the look or feel of
the hosiery. The nylon and spandex yarn is combined with a silicone
blend to make Jobst stocking easy to put on and comfortable with
