Which Sigvaris Style Transparent Stockings Do I Need?

Monday, 28 September 2020  |  Frances

Some compression garments can be very medical in appearance, which isn't ideal when you want to look your best. That's why Sigvaris created their most discreet line of hosiery, the Style Transparent Compression Stockings. Thanks to their highly sheer, fashionable design, your compression garments will never draw attention away from the rest of your outfit again.

Continue through this guide to find out about all the colours, lengths and styles this fantastic range has to offer.

Which Class Do I Need?

The Sigvaris Style Transparent Compression Stockings adhere to the Afnor compression standard, which is in mmHg. The Sigvaris Style Compression Stockings are only available in Class 2 of this standard, which offers 15-20mmHg of pressure. This is a mild to moderate level of compression and should not be used for treating very severe conditions. 

Instead, they can be used for the following:

  • Providing extra support to alleviate sore or mildly swollen legs
  • Relieving fatigue on busy, active days
  • Improving circulation
  • Preventing varicose or spider veins in pregnancy

For a similar line which provides higher levels of compression, take a look at the Sigvaris Style Semitransparent range.

Which Style?

These compression garments are available in a knee and thigh high versions, as well as full length tights. When choosing your style, your priority should be considering which part of your leg requires treatment. For example, your condition may only affect your calf, while others may require compression of the entire leg.

Second to this, you can consider which style you'd prefer from an aesthetic perspective.

Open or Closed Toe?

If your condition does not affect your feet, the decision to have an open or closed toe is entirely up to you. Some people prefer closed toe garments as they can feel a little warmer in summer, and because they protect your feet from friction when you're wearing shoes. However, others find the excess pressure uncomfortable, and so prefer the open toe alternatives.
