I was just wondering what type of compression stockings do you wear? Do most of you wear knee high or thigh high?

I just do a set of calf raises every once and a while.

I asked my OR instructor this same question, she wears knee highs and has for a long time. She is in her mid-50s and has had no vein problems so far.

Thanks for responding. I think knee highs are probably efficient enough, besides, I don't know if I could stand thigh highs for a whole shift. I wore knee highs when I worked on the floor and they definitely did help. :)

i personally like knee high. I dont like how the thigh high socks roll down my thighs during the day and i have to adjust it

I love Cherokee brand compression socks. They are knee high and don't roll down. True to form, they run larger than other compression socks I've bought but it works out perfectly because I am no chicken-legged girl! lol
