When you are in bed there is no need for compression hose as your legs are on the same level as the heart When your legs are dependent you need to use compression

Not sure I agree. I recommend sleeping with the legs raised and stockings put on before leaving the bed in the morning. I am not fully convinced that the stockings put on swollen legs does enough.
