Size? We help you with the right fit:)

Have you ever thought that size of your stockings might not be the perfect fit for you?
If you have not, welcome to my club. I used to follow my regular confection size. I just could not be bothered to follow the size chart attached to the packaging. Most of the time it worked. At least I thought it did 🙂 I did not pay attention when my pantyhose was slipping around. I used to find it very annoying though. And what was my response? Instead of looking into the size chart, I stopped wearing those uncomfortable stockings. I do not understand, why I just did not look for the reason – the right size.

Later, I started looking at stockings from a different point of view. I realized that stockings have actually amazing benefits for our bodies. I started wearing them not only for a great look, but because of the health benefits they have. Compression stockings give circulatory system a boost, helping blood flow through the legs and back to the heart. In high summer temperatures compression stockings can help with vein dilation, avoiding swollen feet. I understand now that wearing supportive or compression stockings is a great investment in my body. And I want to be sure they fit me well and I feel comfortable wearing them. Moreover, I found out, I can extend the product life if I use the right size.

What did I do in order not to repeat the same mistake again and again? I just simply measured myself.

And how to do so? I would like to share with you, my observation.

These are the most important tips to keep in mind:

Follow the size guide of the product.

Always measure yourself in the morning after you wake up, so you can eliminate wrong measurements due to swelling.

Take measurements while standing.

Measure over bare skin.

Use a tailor’s measuring tape (also known as a sewing tape), not a metal measuring tape.

Very essential is to know your leg length, measure from the floor, behind the heel, to the top of the thigh. (A-G, in the picture below)

For thigh circumference measure the widest part of your thighs. (see point g, in the picture below)

There are more tips, but so far, I believe this brief could be helpful to find the right perfect fit for every woman.

Women – we like to do our research first before we proceed with a purchase. I love to discuss with my friends, read feedbacks or just ask advice from professionals in the related field. Current market has so many products to offer, so it may sometimes become overwhelming and time consuming, right ladies?

And what was my reason to try Avicenum compression stockings? It might sound like a cliché, but it was honestly a word of mouth. I believe in an experience. I found these lovely compression stockings thanks to my colleague’s recommendation. It has been more than 8 years ago. I like to explore, so during those years I have tried another brands to see and experience different density, quality and colors. I became truly addicted and loyal to Avicenum stockings.

What really impressed me was the fact, that Avicenum stockings are made with ion-infused fabric that acts as a deodorant and therefore prevents unpleasant odours. Moreover, silver ions protects textile fibres from damage and increases durability.

No wonder they last sooooo long 🙂

And what about you? What are the factors you consider in making your decision? Have you tried Avicenum stockings and would you like to share your feedback?
