Caring for Your Socks

So you just got your first pair of VIM & VIGR compression socks and you’re already planning out when you’ll use them: after your 6a.m. yoga class, during your eight hour work day, on the plane to Hawaii…yeah, you’re going to want to wear them a lot. That’s why it’s so important to take good care of them and get lots of use out of the amazing Advanced Gradient Pressure™ knitting technology. Luckily, caring for your compression socks really couldn’t be easier.

You’ll want to wash them after each wear (especially if you’re running or working out in them). Simply set your washing machine on delicate and cold water. You can use the dryer if you’re in a hurry, but air drying will actually help preserve the elasticity, as well as the quality of the fabric. They usually don’t take very long to air dry, anyway! If you’re traveling, one awesome tip from our founder, Michelle, is to wash your socks in the hotel sink or tub – the Nylon or Moisture-wick Nylon fabrics dry extremely quickly and they’re really easy to hand wash. Brilliant!

Now you know just how easy it is to keep your VIM & VIGR compression socks in top condition. Once you wear them for a day or two, you’ll get why this is so important! These socks are an investment worth making for athletes, travelers, pregnant moms, sitters, standers and everyone in-between. How do you care for your VIM & VIGR?

    I hand-wash mine in the sink then hang to air dry. Air drying makes the fabric a bit rough and stiff though. Any suggestions besides machine dry.
