VIM & VIGR at the ABC Kids Expo 2014

Last month, the VIM & VIGR team joined thousands of exhibitors, buyers, bloggers and more at the ABC Kids Expo 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada to showcase our fashionable and mommy-approved compression socks. Our booth was stationed in Maternity Square, which was filled with fun and innovative products for women and babies hosting everything from maternity clothing and beauty items to nursing products and slings! We had an amazing time meeting people who are just as excited about simplifying and improving the lives of women through all stages of maternity.

Two brands that really stood out to us that we think you’ll love included Bump Nest® and Pretty Pushers®. Bump Nest® is all about helping expecting mommies stay comfortable and well rested with their therapeutic products, including their pregnancy pillow collection. The pillows help to relieve common aches and pains experienced through pregnancy like swollen feet, Restless Leg Syndrome, lower back pain and more. Pretty Pushers® makes functional, comfortable and cute labor gowns that allow women going into labor to be comfortable and feel prepared. The gowns have thoughtfully designed with openings to allow fetal monitors, IVs, and epidural access in the case that you may need it. 

Lastly, we are thrilled to announce that the ABC Kids Expo gave us the opportunity to connect with several fabulous retailers that will now be selling VIM & VIGR compression socks! Check out a handful of our fabulous new retailers here:

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.
