Lots of "donning aids" available to make it easier to get your compression stockings on easier.

Donning Suggestions
Compression garments are easier to put on when you first get out of bed, before swelling occurs.

Helpful Hints
Skin should be dry. Applying a thin layer of cornstarch or powder will help the stockings or sleeve slide over your skin. Remove your rings and jewelry that can damage your garment. Wear rubber or vinyl gloves to prevent fingernails from damaging the fabric. The gloves also help provide grip to distribute the fabric more easily. Avoid rolling, gathering or bunching the fabric, as this will only increase the pressure like creating a super rubber band. Apply moisturizer to your legs or arm in the evening rather than just before putting on your stocking or sleeve.

There is a device called a "compression stocking butler" that can be purchased or ordered at retailers that sell medical grade compression hose. However, you may want to try wearing latex gloves when putting on your stockings. Most patients find that the latex gloves make the task a lot easier. There are also stockings with a zipper for easier placement.

There are a variety of devices that can help such as a "stocking donner" or "butler." Cotton gloves that have rubber dots on them are very helpful. You can usually buy a pair from a gas station. There is also a "Sock-eez" which can help you remove the stockings.

There are multiple devices for this. Each company has its own and you may want to confer with them. These devices are called butlers or donning aids. The easiest thing to try is wearing a pair of latex rubber gloves when applying the stockings.
