Compression stockings are available in various fabrics like opaque, sheen, and cotton that you can choose from. Opaque stockings are like men’s socks, ideal for both men and women because of comfort and strength to provide enough compression. These are more suitable ones then sheen and are suitable mostly for varicose veins, swelling, and post-surgery.

Sheen stockings are more fashionable and are transparent, which can go well with your other wears but do not provide much compression. This looks well like your second skin and can be easily paired with any stylish outfit.

Compression socks with cotton material are great for sports and running because of the heat and moisture control feature. However, these stockings are suitable for venous related conditions but provide lower compression as compared to opaque fabrics.
