Our Story

 

Weaving style and quality into therapeutic threads, VIM & VIGR products are designer socks with health benefits, and designed with you in mind.

Founded in 2013, our team is committed to creating VIM & VIGR products because we have seen the amazing results firsthand. After discovering our need for compression socks — to relieve achiness or fight fatigue from too much sitting or standing — we were completely underwhelmed by the quality and the style options. So we set out to create a compression sock that made us look good and feel great.

We built our product starting with scientific insights — partnering with vascular surgeons and vein clinics. We found the right formula to create integrally knit true graduated compression and we wove it together with functional fabrics that can stand up to the daily grind and stand out in a crowd.

With VIM & VIGR compression socks, people from all walks of life discover year-round options to help them take on their day and experience expression in compression.

Our mission is to support and embrace creativity, everyday wellness, and personal expression by providing specially engineered, innovative, and fashion-forward solutions.

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.
