HELPFUL HINTS ON HOSIERY

Change regularly after washing your feet.

Make sure socks are the right size – hold the sock against the foot to ensure the heel and toe match. Ensure that they do not cramp your toes.

If legs and feet swell make sure the top of the socks/stockings are not too tight. If they are the tops can be cut.

Natural fibres (cotton and wool) socks are much better for your feet as they keep the feet drier.

If there is a large seam in the socks, turn them inside out.

Support stockings if prescribed they should be worn as they are essential to the circulation.

It is important to get the right fit – if the toes are squashed try toeless stockings.

Keep the feet warm – if circulation is poor encourage wearing trousers, long johns or leg warmers.
