Whether you’re big on New Year’s Resolutions or not, you probably have a few health goals up your sleeve for 2017 (and if you don’t, let’s kick them off together!). The key is to recognize that successful health goals are going to be long-term; without a set plan with milestones to celebrate along the way, that initial determination and excitement that you had on January 1st will wear off real quick.

We have a different sizing chart depending on the type of compression garment. Please consider your foot and calf circumference when choosing your size.

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.
