Support vs. Compression vs. Gradient Compression?

Support, compression and gradient compression are seen as interchangeable, but they are not all created equal!

Support often refers to control top. Support pantyhose do not provide any gradient compression or compression in the product except for the thigh and tummy area.

Compression normally refers to a product that provides equal pressure through the garment. It will feel tight all over.

Gradient compression products are provide the tightest ‘squeeze’ or pressure at the ankle and gradually decrease the pressure or ‘squeeze’ up the leg. This helps to improve circulation, energize tired legs, and prevent and reduce swelling.
