I purchased these stockings for Xmas gifts. 2 daughters-in-law have sit down jobs & have mentioned using an item like these. I am keeping 1 pr for myself & figured if they fit me- a short senior lady with a tendency to retain fluid in my lower legs, they should fit the "the girls". For me they were difficult to get on mostly due to my hand strength. Once on they are reasonably comfortable. Update to above. I tried 1 pair & had great difficulty getting them on & off later that night. They rolled @ the top as well as arounf my ankle & cut into my leg . Once I launder this pair I will be returning the entire set. I wish I could get items singly instead of having to chose between sets of 7. One recipient did tell me she orders her pairs in large sizes so I may reconsidering reordering. Still deciding. It took me more than 10 min to get them on / off.!! I may need some kind of "gizmo" to help since my hand strength is not as good as a younger person.
