Giving Back on Diabetes Alert Day

Above all else, VIM & VIGR is a company that cares about helping people improve their health so that they can live fuller, happier lives doing the things that they love. That is why we are passionate about supporting the American Diabetes Association (ADA), which is an incredible nonprofit made up of over one million volunteers, a membership of more than 441,000 people with diabetes, their families and caregivers, a professional society of nearly 16,500 health care professionals, and more than 800 staff members all working to raise awareness, fund research, deliver services, and give a voice to the diabetic community. We wanted to take our involvement to the next level, which is why we were inspired to establish a partnership with ADA!

Last Tuesday, in honor of Diabetes Alert Day, we pledged to donate 50% of ALL sales made to the nonprofit. One week later, our team is still beaming over the success of the campaign and the support that we received! As a young and growing company, it means the world to us to be able to contribute to the wellbeing of the 30 million Americans that are affected by diabetes, and we plan to continue doing just that. To everyone who made a purchase on Diabetes Alert Day, thank you for your support! If you would like to make a direct donation, please visit www.diabetes.org

Sizing, Fabric & Compression Levels Guide

Size Chart:

We have a different sizing chart depending on the type of compression garment. Please consider your foot and calf circumference when choosing your size.

If you're in between sizes, ask yourself a few questions:
What is my body type? Will I be more comfortable in a size up or down? Take your body type into consideration when choosing a size especially if you're in between sizes.

Garment Care:

Machine wash after each wear, delicate and cold.

Air dry is preferred to maintain the elasticity and quality of fabrics.

Compression Levels:

Compression garments are made in a variety of support levels, each of which is designed to address different needs. These levels are most commonly expressed in millimeters of mercury (abbreviated as mmHg). Generally, graduated compression is displayed in ranges. The higher the numerical value, the stronger the support level indicated. For example, a 20-30 mmHg garment will offer more support and feel tighter than a 15-20 mmHg garment.

All of VIM & VIGR’s products are offered in 15-20 mmHg compression level and select styles are available in 20-30 mmHg.

How to put on compression socks:

Slip your arm into the sock until your fingers reach the toes. Your palm should be resting in the sock's heel. 

Starting at the cuff, fold the sock over until it meets the heel. Make sure to fold the sock onto itself.

With the sock still inverted, pull the foot of the sock firmly onto your foot. Make sure your toes are securely in the toe pocket. Starting with the cuff, gradually roll the sock up.

Adjust so that your heel is properly positioned in the heel pocket and the cuff sits below the knee. Make sure the cuff is not pulled up too high.
