Can Compression Leggings Be Substituted for Compression Stockings?
Compression leggings can be substituted for compression stockings. Compression leggings are a style of compression stockings much like knee highs, thigh highs or pantyhose. Compression is determined by mmHg, or millimeters of Mercury. If compression leggings and another compression stocking style have the same level of compression they can be worn interchangeably.
It is important for footless compression products, like leggings, to be worn correctly. In order to get the correct level of compression, the ankle cuff on the footless compression stocking should be placed at the ankle bone. This ensures that the tightest part of the garment is at the ankle and the compression gradually decreases up the leg.
