Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas with VIM & VIGR

Okay, so Halloween is lurking right around the corner and you’re somewhere between “I want to be festive!” and “I will not spend big bucks on a silly costume.”  Does that sound about right? Yeah, we get it. That’s why we decided to pull together a couple of fun and Halloween looks that you can (mostly) find in your own closet! While it’s fun to get into the Halloween spirit, comfort and wellness are always a priority for the VIM & VIGR team—these costumes will keep you warm and your legs refreshed whether you wear them to work, at a get-together with friends or trick-or-treating with your little ones. Happy Halloween, everyone!

This darling ladybug look requires nothing more than a red sweater (we found this one on Nordstrom.com, a pair of antennas (you could easily make these with a headband, some pipe cleaners and pom poms!) and your red and black polka dot compression socks! Finishing touches may include red lips and nails and a few extra spots if you’re feeling buggy!

If you’ve got a thing for stripes, our simple burglar costume is perfect for you! Take one of your black-and-white striped tops (this one is also on Nordstrom.com) and pair it with black pants, your cream and black compression socks, a black beanie (we love Sauce Headwear!) and a “loot” bag. Complete this look with a bold red lip and you’re ready to go!

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.
