How to Rock Your Socks for the Summer

Step One: Pick a Breathable Fabric

Two go-to fabric choices for summer are cotton and moisture-wicking nylon. Cotton offers natural breathability and all-climate comfort. Moisture-wicking nylon helps draw sweat and moisture off the skin. Its multi-dimensional weave allows for breathability. With these fabric choices, wearing compression socks in the summer is a breeze. Both fabric options increase breathability, comfort, and sleekness during the warmer season.

Step Two: Dress for the Setting

If you plan to be out in the sun all day, pick a lighter hue to help reflect light and repel heat. Summer’s bright colors are perfect for expressing your personality while staying cool. Compression socks are a tasteful pop of personality that’ll catch everyone’s attention. You don’t have to settle with dull when it comes to compression socks. Plus, they provide protection from any blisters, funky tan lines, and dry soles this summer.

Step Three: Select a compression sleeve

Compression sleeves give you the benefit of wearing compression with the freedom to wear whatever you want on your feet - like sandals and flip flops! A sleeve is a fun way to wear compression while dressing up for summer weddings. Show off your summer pedicure in sandals and sleeves.

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.
