Chaps style for the wrong leg?

Compression Stockings . 5 answers . 3 years ago

Is it alright to use chaps style compression stockings that state they are for one leg on the other? I have right leg chaps, but want to wear them on my left leg? Can they be turned inside out and worn?

Don't see why not. Just see how they fit.

Absolutely you can do this. This will not affect the hose or your legs adversely.

You can certainly try. It might not be very comfortable.

I don't see any reason why you couldn't reverse the stocking and use on the other leg. It may not, however, be comfortable.
