Carefully position stocking over foot and heel. Center heel in heel pocket. 3. Pull stocking up and around ankle and calf, working up to the final position. Top of stocking should be 1 to 2 inches below bottom of knee cap. Smooth out any excess material. Care instructions: To preserve life of stockings, launder every three days.
