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.

LEVEL SUPPORT USES & APPLICATIONS

 

15-20 mmHg

Commonly used for travel, mild to moderate edema, pregnancy, spider and varicose veins.

20-30 mmHg

Moderate to Firm

20-30 mmHg is a medical grade compression level and often comes as a prescription or recommendation by a healthcare provider. Please consult with your healthcare provider before choosing this level of support.

30-40 mmHg

Made with advanced gradient pressure knitting for support and aid in muscle recovery, calf sleeves are ideal for running, cycling, hiking, sports and general exercise. Our sleeves offer a moderate compression to re-energize and support your legs​.

We don't recommend them for more sedentary activities like travel. Since compression sleeves stop at the top of the ankle, they're not as effective at preventing swelling. True graduated compression socks or full tights, on the other hand, are very effective at preventing swelling and are perfect for any occasion - sitting or standing for long periods, workouts or travel. 

These high-functioning sleeves help:

  • Energize legs
  • Alleviate achiness and heaviness
  • Stabilize muscles & reduce soreness
  • Aid in muscle recovery

Compression level: 15-20 mmHg

Material: 91% Nylon/9% Spandex (Latex-free) 

Designed in Missoula, MT. Made in Taiwan.

Quality product.

Over the years, I have tried to find compression wear, but I could not find anything that I was able to tolerate. I tried a pair of the Vim & Vigr footless compression socks, and they are amazing. They have helped with my aching legs, and I don't even realize I am wearing them. I am now the proud owner of four pair and I wear them every day! Thank you, Vim & Vigr!

Amazing!

I got the sleeves and love them! Size 3 fits me perfectly. And I’d love to get a pair for my sister, who is a nurse, but she would need larger sizing. You should definitely expand to larger calf sizes.
