Read the reviews and panicked.Opened one of the pkgs I received. The sock went on to my foot easily. I pulled it up my leg. Could not have been more easier. I am 5'2" 141#. size 81/2 N came to my knee where it should. I have athletic calves.
Would not recommend in summer though. Very pleasantly surprised. The compression is light enough that I am not sure where the problem is for other customers.

I went up one size (good thing) ... I wear a size 8.5 shoe and ordered a large. I could get them on but the tops are VERY tight. Don't need to be! I can't imagine it's a good thing to have them so very tight at the top, where a ring mark is left below the knee. Not sure the ventilation does anything.

Boy oh boy I wish I had read the reviews before I purchased these socks. Tight, tight, tight!!!! I thought maybe it was me. I wore a pair to work even though I could only get one sock to the knee, barely. The other was at the ankle which defeats the purpose. Anyway by the end of the day I had to take the scissors to them. Left most of the sock in the garbage. Sorry Catawba.

I wear women's size 5 shoe and have never worn compression socks before. I am 5 feet tall and work as a nurse. So on my feet 7-8 hours a shift. These socks went on snug and stayed that way. Not too tight pulling on. Go to my knees. Very comfortable with slight sensation of compression but do an excellent job of compression! Very happy legs now!

I have worn compression socks for quite awhile. I have ordered different brands. Never have I encountered a sock so tight that I could barely get my foot into it. I know how to properly put on a compression sock. Got it over my toes....rolled it to my heal, could barely make it over the heal and then that was it. It would not go on any further and became painful. I took it off and returned them. I don't see how anyone but people with super skinny legs could wear them. Worse compression socks ever.

I have ordered compression socks from other manufactures but have been unable to wear them because I am petite and I was about to give up being able to wear them because they were over the knee. One of the purchasers wrote a review saying these were too short. I immediately decided to try them. These are terrific for us petite women. We get left out by many manufacturers because they don't make sizes we can wear. If we find slacks we want we have to pay to have them hemmed if we purchase. Tops have gotten too long for us. Skirts the same. So thank you for these socks. My legs need compression and these are perfect. Don't hesitate "shortie"....you will love them.

I received these socks today and they barely went over the foot. Total sock too tight and not due to the compression.. My legs are not that heavy and it was uncomfortable. Sorry they are going back.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Kim143 Too Short and Tight!!
I was hoping I found a great compression stocking.. The socks are to short and barely go over my calf. I am not a big woman with fairly normal size calf's. The socks come up to about 3 inches below my knee , and they are very tight ,and this is not due to the compression. I am either going to return or maybe donate them to someone.
