Compression Stockings Questions

I need suggestions for compression stockings. I have a few varicose veins in my right leg.
Compression Stockings -2 answers
I have varicose veins in my right leg behind the knees and calf. It's been there for a while and it just keeps increasing. It looks like a bulgy pop and I have around 10 pops behind the knees and calf. I started using compression stockings (20-30 mmHg) recently and I got a thigh high one. It keeps rolling down and folded up near my knees and put pressure on the veins. Please suggest some remedy or proper mmHg compression stocking for my varicose veins.

It was busy 5-6 hours later. When I sat down, my legs felt restless and there was a crease causing a red indent around my mid calf. After changing socks, my legs felt fine. A day later my leg still feels a little tingling here and there, and a spot or 2 of tenderness. No bruising or redness.

Compression Stockings -1 answer
All has been going well so far with my pregnancy. I don't take any preventive anticoagulant treatment because I have never had phlebitis, thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. I would like to understand if it is really essential to wear compression stockings all the time, or would half a day would be enough?

Should I look for a different size compression stocking?
Compression Stockings -2 answers
Each day at work I either walk around for 8 hours or drive machines for 8 hours. To help fight leg fatigue I've recently started wearing compression stockings. However, they seem to be the tightest around the lower-to mid calf. The ankle section still is semi-tight, just not as tight as the calf. Should I be looking into a different size or brand? I have athletic calves, so I'm not sure if I need to look into a wider brand or not.
