Compression hosiery is more difficult to put on than regular hosiery; this is because, having to exert considerable pressure, it opposes greater resistance when it is widened in the phase of extension (unrolling) on the legs.
It is therefore possible that the customer, who approaches this type of product for the first time, finds himself in difficulty and comes to the conclusion that he has ordered a size that is too small: in 99% of cases this is not the case! In fact, wearing a larger size would not obtain the pressure indicated in the product specifications, and therefore the benefit of graduated compression would be compromised; the graduated compression is in fact calibrated in size, based on body size, through specific tests during the design phase.
Products with light decreasing pressure 3-7mmHg are easier to put on than 13-17mmHg, which in turn are easier to put on than 18-22mmHg.
To dress its products with graduated compression, Carezza advises you to sit down and gather the product completely on your toes, spreading it. Then stretch it up to the heel, taking care to position it well – the heel is reinforced and therefore highlighted with a particular texture.
Accompany the rest of the stocking by pulling well along the whole leg, so that the elasticity is evenly distributed on the calf and then on the thigh in the case of tights and stockings.
Pay attention to distribute the sock evenly, avoiding areas where several fibers overlap creating hyper-pressure or areas where the stitches are too stretched (hypo-pressure).
Position the panty well in the case of tights.
*For the customer who is looking for non-compression stockings, tights and knee-highs, Carezza includes them in the Shock , Classic and FashionModel lines ; these products can be worn 'normally' as, not being with graduated compression, they are easier to stretch, like the common knee-highs, stockings and tights on the market.
