Fitting FUTURO Stockings: 1. Measure circumference of upper thigh at the line of the bottom of the buttocks. For thigh length stocking do not apply if over 25 inches (63.5 cm). 2. Measure around the circumference of calf at the widest point to determine 'size.' 3. Measure distance from bottom of heel (in standing position, if possible) to the line at the bottom of the buttocks to determine 'length.' FUTURO STOCKING PRECAUTIONS: Proper sizing and application must be assured. Medium Regular: Calf circumference (inches): 12-15. Length (inches): 29-33. 1. Insert hand into heel pocket of stocking. Turn stocking inside out by grasping center of heel pocket. 2. Position stocking over foot and heel, carefully centering heel in heel pocket. 3. Gently pull stocking up and over ankle and calf, working up to the final location. Note that the top of the stocking (i.e. the band) should fall at the bottom of the buttocks. If any excess material exists, smooth out. Care: To ensure stockings last as long as possible, launder after every three days of use. Keep the stockings free from substances like ointments, oils and lanolin which could deteriorate elastic. Hand wash with mild soap in warm (not hot) water. Rinse well until water is clear (do not wring or twist out) and air dry. Do not bleach, tumble dry, dry clean or iron.
