The 5 Top-Rated Features of This Plus Size Knee Compression Sleeve
Wide-Calf Options Available
The plus-size knee compression sleeve is available in sizes from XL up to 6XL with a couple of wide-calf sizes. When referring to the sizing chart, you'll notice 2XL WIDE or 3XL WIDE options for a roomier fit around your calves.
Comfortable Neoprene Material
Free of latex, this knee sleeve is constructed of premium-grade neoprene. Neoprene braces are soft against your skin and provide therapeutic warmth, which can be helpful for sore joints. This knee sleeve also provides compression, which reduces inflammation and promotes blood flow for healing.
This compression knee brace was designed wider at the thigh than at the calf because in most cases, weight is put on at a higher rate above your knee than below. This funnel-shaped knee sleeve is made for fitting thigh circumferences (measured 6 inches above the kneecap) up to 35 inches. This makes for comfortable compression without squeezing your leg. See more plus-size orthotics.
For users’ convenience, this neoprene knee sleeve can be applied and taken off by simply pulling it onto the leg and positioning it so that the seam is at the back of the leg.
Low-Profile, Slim Fit
The XXXL neoprene knee sleeve provides minimal disruption to movement. And its sleek, 13-inch long design ensures a low-profile fit with a closed patella (front of knee) and popliteal (back of knee) design for complete compression and extra support.
Neoprene Compression Knee Sleeve for Plus Size
When it comes to knee pain, your weight is first to blame. Doctors always say your knees will feel better if you lose weight. This is true, but we all know that losing weight is easier said than done. It's just not a useful suggestion or solution, especially if you're in pain! It isn't a miracle worker, but in time, we hope our knee sleeve can help you get back to life, whatever that looks like for you.
This knee compression sleeve in XXL and larger sizes is a simple solution for pain in the knee joint stemming from arthritis, and other knee injuries. We understand that fit can be a challenge, so unlike other brands with limited sizing such as Mueller and Copper Fit, we designed this compression knee sleeve for sizes up to 6XL with an elastic stretch to fit large thighs and big calves comfortably.
Plus Size Knee Compression Sleeve for Arthritis Pain
Arthritis refers to swelling of the joints, which causes pain and stiffness. Not surprisingly, when this occurs in the knee joint, this can be quite disruptive to your day-to-day life. Simply walking or climbing a flight of stairs can become problematic.
Millions of people deal with arthritis in its various forms. And those who are overweight or obese are at an even higher risk of experiencing various forms of knee joint pain, including arthritis. (Learn more about arthritis.)
There is no treatment for arthritis, but there are steps you can take to manage your discomfort, maintain mobility and limit the subsequent damage. For one, using an assistive device such as this compression knee sleeve can help support the compromised knee and reduce painful inflammation. The warming function of this neoprene knee sleeve also helps with stiffness and the function of the knee.
Other non-surgical modes of treatment for knee joint pain stemming from arthritis include activity modification, physical therapy, heat/ice therapy, and medication. Some also have success with alternative therapies like acupuncture.

Plus size compression brace
I like the braces but they bunch and roll behind the knees. The design should include an accordion type feature behind the knees. Also my legs itch after I take them off.
At first hopeful, but then disappointed
I bought the xxl but it was too snug on my thigh and it would not stay up. Reordered the larger size but only the calf dimension gets larger, the thigh dimension stays the same. Kind of silly it doesn’t enlarge proportionally.
I couldn't use it. It is too small and I did make the correct measurements.
Pull on knee brace
It was too large in thigh and too tight on calf. The discomfort was too great for it to be helpful. Am in process of returning it
The compression is significant and helps to stabilize my knees from an old meniscus injury
