Here are some tips on how to extend the life, appearance and comfort of your compression wear.
If you are wearing your compression garment regularly (as most of our customers do) it is essential that you take special care of your garment to prolong its life.
It is important to wash your compression garments regularly to help prevent the buildup of bacteria. Here is our advice on how to best do this:
You can wash your garment by hand or use a washing machine
Placing your garment in a mesh laundry bag helps protect them during wash cycles
Use warm water with a mild soap or detergent
Do not use chlorine bleach
Do not use fabric softeners
Thigh-High Style Compression
Our Thigh-high stockings with silicone bands should be turned inside out before washing. Before the main wash, you may wish to hand wash the stocking’s silicone band, to remove any lotion, powder, etc.
Replacing Your Compression Garment
While our compression wear is built to last, the materials will start to break down after repeated use for an extended period of time. The garment will last longer if it is properly cared for, but will need to be replaced every three to six months, depending on how often you wear the them.
