What are the measurement units of the compression sock/stocking and what is Denier(Den)?
    A millimeter of mercury(mmHg) is a manometric unit of compression socks/stockings. According to German standards, the compression socks/stockings usually have four compression levels: class I 18-21 mmHg, class II 23-32mmHg, class III 34-46mmHg, and class IV above 49mmHg.
Denier(Den)  is meaning grams per 9 kilometers of yarn weigh. For example, take 9000m yarn to weigh can get 200g that means 200Den
When Den more light it means yarn thinner, let socs/stockings softness and breathable. On the other hand, When Den heavier it means yarn thick, let socs/stockings keep warm.

It is recommended that you can choose a progressive compression stocking (medical elastic stockings) product that is approved by the official medical certification according to your physical condition and needs, or ask professional advice from your doctor.
