    So tired of buying sock after sock stating wide fitting and expensive but still so tight your legs hurt getting off. I now have 5 pairs. So wonderful loose on legs but somehow do not slide down. I am not diabetic but I can only say due to heart have swollen feet and legs and swell when walking and wearing shoes/socks but no more. I come in and inspect my legs and no tight band imprinted actually into my skin as before. Thank you Thank you

  16. Rosy H.

    Really good for my swollen ankles but pricey for one pair.

  17. Deborah M.

    After trying MANY different companies and socks FINALLY found one that stocks socks that actually fit!

  18. Dorothy Gow

    Lovely and soft and doesn’t grip tight on top of legs or ankles, my husband would like your brighter colours can you email when you have them in stock thanks.

  19. Amanda R.

    Fantastic socks which I bought for my father who has very oedematous lower legs ankles and feet. They glide on with no effort, are not tight and he says they are soft and comfortable.They also wash well and tumble dry.Will definitely buy again and recommend.

  20. Finlay McKeracher

    Ideal and very pleased.

  21. George Fincham

    First class service found the socks on the internet ordered them and they turned up two days late, the socks are comfortable unlike socks I had bought from other companies. Would recommend them if you have swollen legs

  25. Lee Sheppard

    Socks are very good but not cheap I see how long they last

  26. David B.

    Good value for money

  27. Lisa

    My Dad suffers with swollen ankles and feet due to a terminal illness and he’s unable to wear any other socks as they’re too tight to fit over his feet and ankles. He was absolutely delighted with these and said they’re ultra comfy and easy to pull on. The only negative was that after the first wash the elastic at the top of every sock unraveled slightly which is disappointing considering the cost at £15 a pair & it happened on all 3 pairs I purchased for him.

    I did not see them but recipient very pleased with them

  29. Royan Laight

    Bought these for my 97rd old great grandma who has really swollen feet and she absolutley loves them!!

  30. Rachael

    Bought for my mother who had just had a DVT, absolutely perfect! Able to keep her lower limb warm without causing any marking on her leg at all.

  31. Margaret Prest

    I ordered these for my brother and they were delivered direct to him so I haven’t actually seen them. He was very pleased with them which why I ordered more.

    I searched the world around, and finally found the one pair of socks that are not TOO TIGHT.

  33. Olga Bartram

    Excellent East to get on over swollen feet and ankles

  34. Anonymous

    Especially recommended for high arch since they are not too tight, unlike most other socks.

  35. Anonymous

    Absolutely brilliant. Lightweight, not too thick. Really loose fitting, but still manage to stay up. Really good purchase!

  36. Jean Baker

    Fantastic product , swelling has reduced and socks are comfortable to wear

  37. Mrs Heather Waite

    My 75 year old husband was very pleased with these socks as they are the ony ones I could find that didn’t cause restriction marks around his ankles following a double ankle fracture and subsequent swelling. Although the swelling has improved somewhat he still finds them extremely comfortable.

  38. Susan W.

    For years been looking for socks with loose tops. Tried many but normally not what the advertising promises! These are great and no longer have to worry about tightness around ankles. They truly are as advertised.

    These are perfect for my elderly mother in law. Couldn’t find anything that was wide enough for her swollen ankles until we came across these. Just about to order another 3 pairs as she is so happy with the fit. Would recommend these to anyone looking for a wide soft top.

  43. Beverley

    Very good fitting socks especially when you have a lot of swelling

  44. Helen T.

    I am so pleased to have finally found socks that don’t dig into my ankles & leave painful indents in my skin.
    They are so loose & very comfortable.

    Excellent quality. It is a pity the palette is so limited, though. Red, yellow etc. would be popular, I am sure.
