Applying CAROLON Multi-Layer Compression Stockings*

Apply the stocking system first thing in the morning when swelling is reduced. If applying later in the day, elevate leg for 30 minutes prior to application.


• Reach into the stocking and grasp the inside of the toe area

• Begin turning the stocking inside out by pulling the toe areas through the stocking to the top

• Stop when the blue heel patch just becomes visible

• Place the toe area of the stocking over your foot making sure the blue heel patch is on the bottom of your foot

• Pull band over the foot and calf so as to lay the stocking over your leg

• Position the top of the stocking away from your toes to prevent pressure

• Smooth stocking to remove wrinkles

Washing instructions

• Stockings may be placed directly in washer (use hosiery bag for sheer). Machine wash in hot water on gentle cycle

• Tumble dry on a medium heat

• If bleaching is desired, do not use a chlorine bleach, use peroxide based bleach only

• Do not expose to direct heat sources such as irons, blow dryers or radiators

• Do not dry clean


• Apply using the same method as described for the understocking. The slickness of the fabric will allow the overstocking to slide easily over the understocking

• Work the overstocking over the leg so that the top matches the understocking just below the knee


• Do not use on or for arterial and mixed venous/arterial ulcers

• If redness or irritation results, or if toes become discoloured black or blue, discontinue use

• Do not use when the product is in direct contact with an open wound

*See product insert leaflet for full instructions for use.
