Instructions for Use
It is recommended to put your garment on dry skin and to put the garment on right when you first get up from bed when swelling is minimal. You should remove your jewelry, rings, and watches before applying your garment to avoid damaging it. You may want to wear rubber or vinyl gloves such as Sigvaris Rubber Gloves to prevent fingernails from damaging the fabric or avoid pressing your fingernails into the stitching. To pull up the garment, place your thumbs inside and gather the fabric, then place your foot in the garment and adjust the knee and toe areas. Gently pull up the garment, keeping the garment as straight as possible. Avoid rolling, twisting or overstretching the fabric. If you usually apply moisturizer to your legs or arms, it is better to moisturize the skin in the evening rather than just before putting on your garment in the morning. Remove your garment before going to bed.
