Unless you are wearing compression stockings that have been custom made for you or you have found the absolutely perfect fitting pair off the shelf, it can sometimes be challenging to keep your compression hose or stockings from migrating south with all the walking, bending and stretching we do over the course of a busy day.
The reality is that a fair many wearers of compression stockings, tights or pantyhose have to adjust and resituate their compression hosiery at different times during the day.
One of the most annoying things are situations where your compression hose or stockings keep creeping down your legs, resulting in excess material collecting behind your knees or at your ankles. In addition, this can cause pinching of the skin, or in the worst case even create a tourniquet effect that could impair blood circulation.
Do You Know the Secret to Make Your Compression Stockings Stay in Place?
The best “not” kept secret for keeping compression stockings in place is body adhesive or roll-on body adhesive to be exact. It is super easy to use – just roll it on wherever you want your compression stockings to stay and you can bet they will not budge.
The adhesive dries quite quickly and keeps your compression hose up without fail even through Yoga, Pilates or any other bending and stretching exercises. No compression stocking material creeping down your legs, no bunching up and no pinching anywhere.
Amazingly, this body glue also stays flexible enough to move and stretch with you all day long. It is very convenient because it is clear, non-staining and simply washes off with water using a wash cloth or during a shower or bath.
The registered trade name of this miracle body adhesive product is very fittingly “It Stays”. Although the product is very gentle and generally very skin friendly you may want to try a little dab somewhere on the inside of your wrist, for example, to make sure that it agrees with your skin.
According to the manufacturer’s recommendations, the body adhesive can be used for compression and support hosiery, socks, knee socks, pantyhose, shoulder straps, wigs, toupees, theatrical makeup & devices, and orthopedic & surgical devices.
People who have used the body glue commented that it is not runny or goopy and dries to a non-sticky consistency. Users have discovered many additional uses for “It Stays” roll-on body adhesive, such as for thigh high stockings and hold up stockings, strapless bras, strapless dresses, gymnast leotards and prosthetics devices just to name a few.
On the lighter side this quickly bonding body glue has been reported to be a wedgie fighter and has been trusted to prevent wardrobe malfunctions.
