Pregnancy & Parenting Writer Shares a Day in Her Life on Instagram!

We want to thank all-star blogger, Devan McGuiness (@bydevan) for sharing a day in her life with us on Instagram yesterday! We enjoyed the first person perspective of a day-in-the-life of a mom with four little ones running around, a fractured tibia, and excellent choice in fashion! Missed her Instagram take-over? Check out our Instagram @VIMVIGRand be sure to follow us for more fun! Below are some of the snapshots she shared with us. Need more mommy advice? Follow her personal blog, bydevan.com and don’t miss her articles posted on Yahoo’s Shine and Babble!

“Good morning, friends! It's Devan from @byDevan - I am so excited to be taking over VIM&VIGR Instagram today to share a bit about our life! First big decision of the day: which sock to choose? What's your vote? ^@byDevan #upgradeyoursocks #vimvigr”

“While trying to work on my fitness, I instead, ended up fracturing my tibia. Since it's now immobilized in this walking cast and I have Factor V Leiden, a condition that increases my chances of developing a blood clot, I wear a VIM&VIGR compression sock under the cast. Bonus: it's way cuter than the giant cotton sock they give you! ^@byDevan #upgradeyoursocks #vimvigr”

 

“As a mom to 4 young ones, sitting down and sitting still is rare. A house full of laughter and endless energy, for them, not me. I enlist the help of re-heated coffee, lots of water, and VIM & VIGR compression socks to get me through the long, on-my-feet-constantly day! It's been a pleasure to hang out with you all today, friends! ^@byDevan#upgradeyoursocks #vimvigr”

Thank you again, Devan! We hope our compression socks help get your leg better and stronger than before so you can use our socks for leg recovery from getting your fitness back 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.

Garment Care:

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.
