Notes from our Certified Fitters:
Always contact your physician and or therapist to determine the correct compression strength for your condition.
The Jobst Relief line is the compression hose that we most often recommend to our clients looking for an more affordable yet effective compression hose. It is soft, comfortable, and durable.
Jobst Relief hose should be replaced after three to six months of normal wear. They start losing their effectiveness after that time. If they seem to be getting looser, than you are not receiving the maximum benefits of their compression strength.

Who Wears Jobst?
You can benefit from Jobst compression hosiery whether you suffer from tired aching legs because you spend too much time standing or sitting, or suffer from more serious problems like swelling and venous disease. They fit all genders, shapes and sizes from tall to petite, large frame to small. Jobst offers a wide range of colors and styles to meet your needs. If comfort, health and style are important to you, then you can count on Jobst, the #1 Physician Recommended brand in compression stockings.
Sizing for medical compression stockings is based on the circumferences of the leg. It is best to measure early in the day before swelling occurs.
Properly fitting Jobst compression stockings should feel snug at first. It may take a few days to adjust to the pressure.
- Compression garments are easier to put on when you first get out of bed, before swelling occurs.
- Remove rings and jewelry 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 Jobst hosiery
- 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 moisturizer to your legs (or arm) in the evening - not just before putting on your garment
Wear & Care
Wearing Compression for the First Time
The first few times you wear your compression garment you will notice the squeeze. It is OK to begin wearing your stockings gradually. Try wearing them for just a few hours the first day and then increase the number of hours each day until you can wear them comfortably throughout the day while you are up and about. Check your stockings periodically to smooth out any wrinkles as the fabric may move during the day. Remove your stockings before going to bed.
It is important to wear your compression garments everyday. Compression stockings and sleeves manage an on-going problem. When you remove your compression garment the condition responsible for your symptoms is still there. Failure to wear your stockings or lymphedema garment may cause your condition to become more severe.
Hand or machine-wash with warm water and mild soap or detergent, or Jolastic Washing Solution. No chlorine bleach. Warm water rinse. Hang or lay flat to air-dry. May dry in a dryer on low heat or delicate setting. Placing your stockings in a mesh laundry bag will help protect them during the wash cycle.
Special Care for Jobst Thigh High Style Hosiery
The use of skin care products (such as skin creams, body lotion, or powder) as well as various skin types (such as dry or peeling skin) and hair growth may prevent the silicone band from keeping the thigh high in place.
To improve the performance of the silicone band under the above conditions, we recommend the following steps:
1. Turn the Jobst Thigh Highs inside out before washing.
2. Before the main wash, thoroughly hand wash the silicone band using a delicate fabric detergent. Concentrate on removing any lotion, powder , hair or other foreign material from the silicone.
3. Follow the "Application and Care Instructions" included in the JobstThigh High package.
Replacing Your Garment
The elastic fibers of your compression garment stockings will break down with wear. Proper care will increase the "life" span of your stockings, but you will need to replace your stockings or sleeve at about every 3-6 months depending on how often you are wearing and how you are caring for your garment. As a general rule, if your garment becomes easy to put on, it probably needs to be replaced.

We recommend that donning gloves always been worn when applying your compression garments. These gloves have a gripping texture that makes it considerably easier to put on compression hose. Donning gloves also help to prevent tearing, snagging or putting a nail or finger through the garment. This is especially true with the sheer compression hosiery. Other people prefer to use a donning aid like the Juzo Slippie Gator or Mediven Butler. To preserve the life of your stockings, we suggest using Jobst Jolastic Wash.
