   How To Measure for Compression Stockings





Each brand of compression stockings such as Sigvaris, Jobst and Juzo has its own sizing. It's important that you compare your measurements with the manufacturer's sizing chart before purchasing.

A certified compression stocking fitter will help you ensure the correct sizing and compression level for your specific needs.




Stocking Measuring Tips



  • Always measure in the numbered order and as soon as possible after waking when swelling is minimal.
  • Always measure against bare skin, not over clothing.
  • This measuring system is based on having your foot flat against the floor and the calf or thigh at right angles to your foot.
  • Measurements should be taken by pulling the tape around the leg so it is snug but not constricting.
  • Length measurements should be taken from the ground up.


  • Calf Style



    1.

    Measure your ankle circumference

    at the narrowest part of your ankle, usually above your ankle bone.

    2.

    Measure your calf circumference

    at the fullest part of your calf.

    3.

    Determine your calf length

    by measuring from the floor up the bend in your knee. This measurement is taken on the outside of your leg.



    Pantyhose and Thigh-High Style



    1. Measure your ankle circumference at the narrowest part of your ankle, usually above your ankle bone.

    2. Measure your calf circumference at the fullest part of your calf.

    3. Skip step 3.

    4.

    Measure your thigh

    at its widest circumference.

    5.

    Determine your leg length

    by measuring from the floor up to the crease of your buttocks (gluteal fold).

    6.
