I have to wear medically prescribed support stockings. Usually only prescribed to elderly but I was anly 40 when it started. The problem with these stockings is:
- no fashionable colours available (improve marketing)
- not comfortbale to wear (improve fabric) because they come down during the day and start to hurt then
- they wear extremely fast at toe and heel and can not be repaired. I cannot afford new ones, because they cost EUR 150 per pair and the insurance compensates only two pairs per year (!!!) (price to be reduced; quality to be improved)
- this links to the fashion problem too; one cannot afford to buy three different colours.

Further more: why is the marketing around this product totally absent? There are no inspiring models how to wear these ugly stockings. I had to find it out all by my self e.g. how to be able to hide the stockings under a skirt (wear elegant boots tha combine with a skirt or dress), wear kneewarmers or wear knitted stockings). I had to switch my complete outfits to black or able to combine with black as I can afford only black stockings.
It seems that the producers of these articals do not realize that there is a whole targetgroup far below the age they expect. A fashionable, young targetgroup that wants to be addressed in a proper way.

Hoi meisje,

er zijn zeker wel verschillende kleuren therapeutisch elastische kouzen. Rondom de WK heb ik zelfs oranje kouzen gezien.

Kijk maar eens op www.arion-group.com onder therapeutisch elastische kouzen.
