What Compression is Right For Me?

When looking for compression hose, one of the first things to consider is the level of compression you need. Compression hose implement gradient compression, meaning they are tightest at the ankle and then gradually get looser as they go up the leg. This compression is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). The higher the numbers are, the stronger the compression. Below is a rough guide to choosing the compression you need.

Remember, this is only meant as a guide. For specific questions, speak with your health care provider.

8-15 mmHg:

  • Mild compression
  • Great for tired, aching legs
  • Makes legs feel energized
  • Relieves swelling and improves circulation

15-20 mmHg:

  • Moderate compression
  • Great for travel or standing for long periods
  • Relieves mild swelling and varicose veins
  • Relieves light swelling from pregnancy

20-30 mmHg:

  • Firm compression
  • Recommended for edema and post-sclerotherapy
  • Relieves moderate swelling and varicose veins
  • Relieves moderate swelling from pregnancy

30-40 mmHg:

  • Extra-firm compression
  • Recommended only for severe swelling, edema, and post-sclerotherapy
  • Helps treat venous ulcers and severe varicose veins
  • Only by physician recommendation
