An Ode to Mom's

364 days out of the year, we forget how much our moms have done for us. Mother’s Day is a great reminder to thank our moms for all the wonderful things they do. As the saying goes, "Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a mother" - and for that we're thankful. This is a thank you to all the mothers, mother figures and the amazing women in our lives!
 
  • Thank you for all the dentist appointments, birthday parties, band practices, soccer games and myriad of activities you kept track of.
  • Thank you for unconditional love, even when mistakes are made.
  • Thank you for being a strong role model filled with compassion and kindness.
  • Thank you for being selfless and putting your family’s needs first.
  • Thank you for washing my clothes - and the dishes.
  • Thank you for reminding me of my worth.
  • Thank you for teaching me to see the best in people.
  • Thank you for all the sacrifices you have made.
  • Thank you for the chores you gave me (even though I hated them at the time).
  • Thank you for reminding me it’s okay to be human.
  • Thank you for all the home-cooked meals.
  • Thank you for the laughter.
  • Thank you for inspiring me to be strong, confident and kind.
  • Thank you for being more than a mother. Thank you for being my best friend.
Spoil your mom this Mother’s Day  - but also remember to thank her all year for all the amazing things she does. Happy Mother’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.

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.
