I've been on the same prescription for a custom made, class 2 flat knit, thigh high stocking since 2019. My leg was measured just 3 months ago and my nurse confirmed my leg is stable and said I could continue with my usual prescription - a decision I was happy with.
Up to spring 2021 I've had 8 stockings on said prescription and they have all been virtually identical and have controlled my swelling very well. I was very disappointed when I received my autumn order of stockings to find that they are about 3cm longer than usual, feel looser when on and worryingly don't control my swelling so well. I am certain that my leg has not got smaller or shorter.
The manufacturer has confirmed that the correct measurements were used to make the stockings and won't offer any further support with the problem.
Has anyone else who wears custom made, flat knit, thigh high stockings experienced a similar problem?
I'm in the UK.
