To put on a regular pair of socks, most people scrunch them up, stick their foot in, and pull. It’s pretty easy. Try this with a compression stocking and you’ll get nowhere fast! Check out our new donning video which demonstrates 3 different ways to easily and properly put on a pair of support socks. This short video will demonstrate the heel pocket method, how to use rubber donning gloves, and how to use a Stocking Donner.
The heel pocket method works very well for stockings that are thicker or have a lot of compression. Sheer and less firm stockings are best put on with donning gloves. The gloves protect the delicate fabric from snags and runs and gives you a better grip on the fabric.
The metal frame Stocking Donner is a great solution If you have difficulty bending or crossing your legs. Stocking Donners are available in regular size, wide-calf size and even a specially designed two-leg donner for pantyhose.
