About Style Stockings
Style Stockings, found online at StyleStockings.com, is a new product which says that they have given women the ability to use compression stockings on a daily basis by providing function stockings that have style.
How Does It Work?
Compression stockings are a health and wellness product that can offer many benefits to women who are suffering from conditions like poor leg circulation, leg swelling, and alleviating issues with the potential for blood clots after surgery or injury.
This website says that the problem, however, is that traditionally compression stockings are built entirely for function and not with any particular style in mind, which can often dissuade women from wearing them, because they don’t want people to know that they are wearing compression stockings to work or dress up functions.
To solve this problem, Style Stockings provides compression stockings in four different patterns, regular black, floral, leopard print, and paisley. They are thigh high, so they can be work with most pants, skirts, and dresses, all while providing users with the design they need to soothe achy legs and support circulation.
Finally, these stockings also come in four different sizes - small, medium, large, and queen - which is important because sizing for compression stockings can be tricky and limited.
Currently Style Stockings are priced at a single pair for $10, plus a Shipping and Handling charge of $4.95. As a promotion, they are also allowing customers to purchase a second pair, in a completely different style pattern, for just a second Shipping and Handling charge of $4.95.
The website does say that they offer a Refund Policy for unhappy customers, but unfortunately they provide very few details about this policy. Customers who are “dissatisfied for any reason” are invited to return their product within 30 days for a refund, minus the cost of Shipping and Handling.
The website provides no information on whether or not the product must be unopened, or if customers are allowed to try on the stocking for fit before returning it. Some compression stocking companies do not allow products to be returned after it has been tried on, due to certain potential hygienic issues, so with that in mind concerned customers may want to call Customer Service and receive more information about the Refund Policy in advance.

Though this is a new product and as such it is difficult to find customer or user reviews for this product at this time, it does seem fair to say that there is a potential problem with quality of this product.
Compression stockings are a health product, not a fashion product, and must be designed and fit very specifically in order to provide their users with the best benefit. Style Stockings, on the other hand, appear to be more like traditional stockings that are trying to impart some minor compression benefits to their users.
The bottom line that if this product is useful at all, it is likely to be more useful for people with minor issues who are able to benefit from less intensive compression and much less likely to work for people who genuinely require compression wear for potentially serious health issues.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Compression socks and compression wear for other areas of the body are very popular health products to sell, because they are often used by people of all ages. Younger people can benefit from them, depending on the injuries they may have experienced or the sports and activities they engage in on a regular basis, while many older people experience poor circulation and potentially painful water retention which can be assisted by compression wear. For all of these reasons, there is a long list of companies which offer compression wear, including:
