Fashion Series: Keep Legs Long and Lean After Baby with Yoga and Compression

After leaving yoga class you feel great. Your body is relaxed, your mind is clear, and your legs feel long and lean. Yoga is largely considered to be a restorative form of exercise, and many people who partake in more high-impact activities like running and Crossfit usually practice yoga to recover. Yoga is also extremely beneficial to women post-pregnancy. In between stretching sessions, VIM & VIGR compression socks can boost great benefits to add to your proactive regiment. 

 

Yoga Outfit

 

Wearing compression socks after your yoga session will not only maintain the circulation you boosted in your legs during your workout, but it will help them feel more rested off the mat. If you stretched your legs a little deeper than you planned, wearing compression socks can help take that edge off and speed up your recovery. The circulation of freshly oxygenated blood to your legs will also help you to stretch yourself further as time goes on.

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.

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.
