Sizing FAQs

What if I'm between sizes?

If you're in between sizes, take into consideration your body type and what you are generally most comfortable in. Do you find that you often size up in shoes or pants? Do you have wide feet or narrow? Do you like a really tight fit for the feeling of support? 

Don't forget we do offer postage-paid free returns & exchanges - so if the first size you try isn't a perfect fit, we'll happily help you find one that does.

How do I know if I need a "wide calf" size?

Our wide calf sizes accommodate a calf circumference of 17-21," measured at the widest point of the calf. To measure your calves, use a tape measure or a piece of string that you can lay alongside a ruler. 

If your calf measures between a wide calf and standard calf size, we recommend trying the standard calf size first. Compression socks should feel tight, like a gentle hug for your legs.

Why do some of my socks feel tighter than others?

You may find that a pair of your compression socks feels tighter than the others, even in the same size. This is normal! Different fabrics will feel differently on your legs. For example, nylon socks may feel more compressive due to the denser weave (400 needle-count) - however, they offer the same compression that you'd get from the same compression level in a cotton sock. Customers often remark that our cotton socks feel the most stretchy & easy to put on. 

Our products are regularly tested and quality-checked to ensure they fall within the listed compression range and correct size measurements - so you can be assured that the socks you're wearing are delivering all the benefits of graduated compression.

It's important to note that some of our more complex designs do have stitching on the inside that some say makes the sock feel tighter or harder to put on. This is the nature of a sock that has the design woven into the fabric, rather than printed on the surface. If you are concerned about fit, we do recommend starting with our simpler designs to begin getting your legs used to the feeling of wearing compression socks.

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 and 30-40 mmHg.

    Puppy socks

    I have loved these socks since they first came out, so did everyone else! I couldn’t get them in my size so went from a m to a l and they are fine, little extra toe room but still fit great

    Give my legs more vim & vigor

    These are my first pair of compression socks and I really like the way they make my legs feel! I definitely had more energy with them on. The only downside ( if you could even consider it one, given the reason for compression socks) is that they are hard to put on, especially if you have flexibility issues.

    Best friends and best socks

    These socks are wonderful in the fact they provide the perfect amount of support for me without being uncomfortable. The best friend socks look great with blue jeans.

    Comfortable on Test Drive

    I am traveling overseas but I wanted to "test drive" the socks. I wore them at work where I am on my feet most of the day. My legs and feet felt great at the end of the day. The socks were easy to get on and off. I was concerned that at the end of the day the socks would be difficult to remove but they were fine. So far so good. Next event will be on the plane overseas and hoping they continue to provide good results.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE

    I feel like I could be a sales rep for Vim & Vigr... I have worn them daily since I first got a pair...and have bought them for all my family members and good friends. I own a bakery and am on my feet from 4 a.m. til 7 p.m...I've always heard folks talk about compression stockings...but I always envisioned those hideous tan socks that old folks wear. Then I discovered your amazing socks and WOW it's a brand new day. Love them, feel energized, my cold feet are miraculously warm, and the patterns are so fun. I'm going to try the tights as well, as I can only imagine how heavenly they are, but was hoping for some fun patterns. Thanks for making a fabulous product! Keep up the great work! And we'll continue to support you!
