Sizing, Fabric & Compression Levels

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.

This fall, we're excited to introduce three new wide calf sizes! Learn more about our quest to make socks that are perfectly sized for every body and everybody.

FOR SIZING ON SALE ITEMS, please reference this chart.

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 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 VIM & VIGR legwear is offered in a 15-20 mmHg compression level and select styles are available in 20-30 mmHg.
