2. Wearing wrinkled stockings or sagging stockings
3. Wearing the stockings with the heels in the wrong place
4. Wearing open-toed stockings (stockings without special parts for the toes) with the toes in the wrong place
  • Even if you always buy the same size of stockings, you should always measure the circumferences of your ankle, calf and thigh first to confirm the appropriate size before purchasing a new pair.
  • Please do not use stockings if they have any runs or ravels.
  • Please do not cut the stockings with scissors or do not process or remodel them. If you do, ravels may result and the appropriate compression may not be achieved.
