Finding the product that’s right for you:
I’ve got swollen legs:
Our Everyday Stockings, Everyday Knee Highs and Everyday Tights are specifically designed for people with larger or swollen legs. They’re made with more material in the foot and leg parts to provide a generous and comfy fit. We also offer an extra roomy fitting in all of our other hosiery products.
I’m under 160 cm (5’3”) or under:
I want hosiery that won’t dig in:
Our Softhold range of hold-ups, knee highs and ankle highs has a special top designed to keep hosiery in place gently yet securely. It won’t restrict circulation or leave unsightly marks.
I’m looking for tights to fit a fuller figure:
We offer tights in a hip size up to 72”. We also offer an extra roomy fitting in all our tights.
I’m looking for light support:
Our softhold light support hosiery features Factor 6 Leg Care technology which gives legs a gentle, graduated massage action that’s clinically proven to improve circulation and reduce leg fatigue.
Can I order one pair of socks or hosiery or buy mixed colour packs?
No, we are no different from other retailers and are only able to offer the selections and pack sizes listed.
Does your hosiery contain any latex?
No, none of the products contained within the hosiery section of the website contain latex.
I'm a diabetic; do you sell any seam-free hosiery?
We do sell seam-free foot socks but due to manufacturing constraints it is not possible to produce seam-free tights, stockings or knee-highs. Our hosiery does however only have minimal seams. If you are a diabetic or have sensitive feet we recommend that you make your own judgement about suitability.
I currently wear compression hosiery given to me by my Doctor; can I wear your Light Support hosiery instead?
Medical compression hosiery offers a much greater level of compression/support than our Light Support hosiery and should not be worn as an alternative. If however you are not able to wear your prescribed hosiery, wearing Light Support hosiery would be better than wearing nothing at all.
