Compression stockings for everyday and hospital  use. 
Compression stockings  help prevent the occurrence of, and guard against further progression of, venous disorders such as edema, phlebitis, varicose veins and thrombosis. 
The stockings are specially designed to apply pressure to your lower legs, helping to maintain blood flow and reduce discomfort and swelling.
They may be prescribed by your GP if you have a condition that causes poor blood flow in your legs, such as varicose veins and lymphoedema 
Compression stockings come in a variety of sizes, lengths and colours. They're also available with different strengths of compressio
British standard for class of compression:
Class 1 stockings (light compression) exert an ankle pressure of 14–17 mmHg.
Class 2 stockings (medium compression) exert an ankle pressure of 18–24 mmHg.

Wearing compression stockings is one way of reducing your risk of developing DVT.
