This box, which contains the medical-grade compression stockings Bossy recently wore for two weeks, where compression stockings equal Instruments of torture — even getting the things on was like wrestling the alligator.
So why does Bossy love this box when she hates the stockings? Because from the corner of Bossy’s eye, as she passes this box a hundred times a day, sitting there trying to act all innocent on the bureau top, Bossy misreads the description as Medieval Comfort. That sounds about right.

Ha ha ha. Actually not funny. But funny.

I remember my poor mom having to wear these when she was pregnant with the last few kids

I thought the same thing when I first looked at the box. And I’m so with you on the compression stockings as torture…I had to wear them last fall after surgery – a lovely round of DVT earlier in the year had everyone nervous about the outcome of surgery and so I had to wrestle on the very fashionable stockings.

And that woman looks so cheerful! Very deceptive. I remember these from The Farmer’s heart surgery. He refused to deal with them, so I finally figured out if I rolled them off, I could roll them back on. An unwilling patient makes it so much more of a challenge!

I think these stockings must be a little like wearing medieval chain mail?

Oh Bossy – I feel your pain! When I was pregnant I had to wear these heinous compression “stockings” (can you call it a stocking if it would take a bullet hole to get them to run?) While they were not as bad as your “Medieval Comfort” monstrosity they were not far behind – just one compression level below what you’re in. I hope you can have yourself a GOOD laugh imaging a full term pregnant woman wrestling herself into compression hose every morning. Sweet mercy… it was not pretty!
Good luck and I hope you are feeling better (and fully uncompressed) soon!

I call false advertising! If that woman were wearing those stockings she would not be sitting with her knees bent like that all happy.
I demand turth in advertising! Show a woman being racked!

Does anyone else feel like the woman on the box looks like Mariska Hargitay?
Linda saysFebruary 25, 2010 at 9:14 pm
Yes!!! I was just coming to post the exact same thing.

Who’s the happy lady on the front of the box? I hate marketing.
CS saysFebruary 26, 2010 at 1:10 am
AHHHHAAAAAA! That is priceless, and yes, that is some kind of cheapass, cut-rate photoshopped Mariska Hargitay on that box, for sure.
