Dear VIM & VIGR Family,
It’s hard to believe it’s already been FIVE years since VIM & VIGR began. What started as a dream fueled by my own search for stylish compression socks has grown into a thriving company that has touched thousands of lives with our one-of-a-kind product. What a journey it has been!
This has been the most exciting year yet. We saw our socks featured on CNN Travel, the View and Good Morning America. Last month, we were listed as one of Inc. 5000’s fastest-growing companies. Not only did we make the list, but we ranked #875 out of 5000! Seeing our three-year growth rate of 575% on paper affirmed the thrilling whirlwind the last few years have been. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
The past year has brought many new faces to our company – bright, driven individuals who share a passion for providing everyday wellness through our compression legwear – but more than that, teammates who energize one another with new ideas and big thinking. We are better because of each and every one of these talented colleagues.
With a growing team, we’ve been able expand our product line, bringing new options – like our MOVE compression sleeves – to the market and telling the story of everyday wellness in fun and creative ways. What started as a handful of colorful socks has transformed into a whole catalog full of legwear – from men’s to women’s, cotton to merino wool, sleeves to tights.
As we celebrate our fifth anniversary, we wanted to share a glimpse behind the scenes – into the culture, people and community that make VIM & VIGR an amazing place to work and create. Together, this team is committed to bringing you – our tremendous customers, cheerleaders and advocates - innovative compression legwear and unmatched style for years to come.
You make what we do worth it. Your stories - of developing healthy habits, of achieving new goals, of experiencing less pain and swelling after a long day at work – drive us to be the best that we can be. Thanks for embarking on this journey of everyday wellness with us. We can’t wait to see where this year takes us!
Founder, VIM & VIGR

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.
