There are several different techniques on how to apply compression stockings, with no “wrong” way if the stocking is evenly distributed on the leg or limb without any wrinkles or creases. One must ensure that the heel pocket is placed properly, and that the garment terminates at the proper location. For knee or calf-length stockings, the garment should reach past the widest part of the calf and below the crease in the knee. If not, the product is either too long or too short. Thigh-length stockings should terminate below the gluteal fold or buttocks. Panty-length stockings will terminate above the hips at the waistline, and make sure the compressive leg portion is secured into the groin area.
