Mine last 3 months. I have to increase pain relief until I can get replacements. And if only 2 pairs were ordered each time. I frequently have to make the second request when the stockings arrive.

Only having 2 garments at a time means washing them EVERY day. It all adds to the daily grind of living with lymphoedema - it's time consuming and exhausting..
