How many times have you thought to yourself I deserve this just before splurging on a new leather bag or eating an entire carton of ice cream? Sure, they both probably made you feel great in the moment, but why should the idea of treating ourselves be associated with guilty pleasures and over-indulgences? Well, the VIM & VIGR team doesn’t think it should, which is why we’re giving new meaning to the phrase this year. Instead of giving ourselves permission to buy, eat or do something that only offers short-term happiness (like skipping the gym three days in a row or binge drinking on a Friday night) because “we deserve it,” we are going to give ourselves permission to make better choices because yes, we do deserve it. Here are three easy and inexpensive ways to get started:

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.
Machine wash after each wear, delicate and cold.
Air dry is preferred to maintain the elasticity and quality of fabrics.
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.
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.
