Properly fitting JOBSTcompression stockings and arm sleeves should feel snug at first. It may take a few days to adjust to the pressure. Before you put on your stockings or arm sleeve review the Helpful Hints and Donning Methods.
Compression garments are easier to put on when you first get out of bed, before swelling occurs.
Remove rings and jewellery that could damage your garment
Use gloves (rubber or vinyl) to help position the garment on your leg
Make sure your skin is dry before putting on your JOBSThosiery
Avoid rolling or bunching the fabric as this will create too much pressure in specific areas
Apply a thin layer of cornstarch or powder to help the stocking (or sleeve) slide smoothly over your skin
Apply moisturiser to your legs (or arm) in the evening - not just before putting on your garment
