While we think it’s best to try out all our fabrics and styles, we know it can be hard to decide where to start! Our legwear comes in four different fabrics – nylon, moisture-wick nylon, cotton and wool. All of our fabric options feature the same graduated compression at the listed level (15 – 20 mmHg or 20 – 30 mmHg), but each feels a little different. You can read about the technical differences here.
We find that our customer’s fabric preferences are generally based on a complex combination of shoe choices, foot feel, average foot temperature, common outfits, frequent activities, etc. It really boils down to personal preference!
To help you get started, we put together this fun quiz. It might help predict your new favorite sock – or at least point you in the right direction.
Still not sure about which fabric to choose? We are always here to help! You can check out the info on our sizing, fabric and compression guide. If you’re still undecided, feel free to reach out to our Customer Service Team for guidance.
May you find your perfect compression sock soon!

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.
