Fashion Series: Cupid's Closet

This year, the VIM & VIGR team challenges you to be the most loving and caring Valentine that you possibly can be – to yourself! Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to treat yourself to a little pampering, some chocolate and a fabulous and festive outfit. Whether you’ve got a date with your sweetheart, your best friends or yourself this Saturday night, we’ve got the perfect outfit inspiration to take you from a daytime stroll in the farmer’s market to a candlelit dinner.

Our approach to this outfit was to take a simple LBD (little black dress), and accessorize it with pops of color and some V-day flair! We started with this relaxed yet polished shirtdress from J.Crew, and paired it with our red and black polka dot VIM & VIGR compression socks. Can you say a match made in heaven? Next step: shoes! While heels are a common first choice, a dependable pair of black flats will keep your feet from aching at the end of the night; these cute, matte black Tieks are perfect for the job. To complete the look, we couldn’t resist this wink face Kate Spade clutch for a touch of sass, and a bold red belt (we found this one at Mango) to tie the whole look together! Our last bit of advice: do not leave the house without a box of chocolates. Share them with your loved ones, coworkers and friends as you go throughout your day (don’t forget to save some for yourself). We love the beautiful and delicious assortments from Valerie Confections!

We wish you all a fashionable and love-filled Valentine’s Day!

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.
