Introducing VIM & VIGR MOVE

Dear Friends:

When we started VIM & VIGR in 2013, I wanted to bring the health benefits of compression to people everywhere, without sacrificing fashion. Because you shouldn’t have to choose between looking great and feeling great.

Since then, we’ve met so many people from all walks of life, all looking for legwear that brings back a bit of “vim & vigor” to their life by meeting both form “&” function. But there’s another “&” we wanted to address: versatility.

All of us are pulled in a million directions: work and family and staying healthy… and the list goes on. It’s hard to stop for a quick costume change when you’re on the move — so we wanted to create everyday compression for everyday living.

That’s why we’re excited to introduce you to VIM & VIGR MOVE​. These versatile compression sleeves provide the high-quality therapeutic support of all VIM & VIGR products, with a stylish look and feel that fits everything you’re doing throughout the day. From the gym to the office to yoga class, then back home for family game night, Move compression sleeves will help you get there.

Thanks for being a VIM & VIGR customer. I hope you’ll check out the new Move sleeves soon.

Stay healthy,

Michelle

Founder, VIM & VIGR

No comment yet as I have to try them first! I am 74 and find compression stockings always difficult to get on!!! Are these sleeves designed to eliminate this problem? Thank you for information👍

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.
