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.

    Perfect Fit

    At 4'11, finding anything that fits is a challenge. Very happy I took a chance and got the Wide Calf / S/M. I was shocked at how great the fit was.

    Pretty Nice Socks

    Happy with them so far. Seem well made. Love the colors and offering of products that are other than black. I have very wide calf and they fit just fine. Bought nylon and cotton pair to try them out, the cotton feels a bit more like a regular sock to my hand, the nylon feels slicker/shinier. Both are great, both feel the same on my leg. Still early so I haven't washed them much to see how they stand up but so far very happy and will visit vimvigr again as I need more socks.

    Comfortable, even for wide calves

    These are comfortable, fit wide calves well, and are just as breathable as cotton.

    I'm glad I took a chance and decided to t try the larger size. The 20-30 decrease the swelling about 95%. Happy with the choice. Wish I had thought of it earlier.

    Love

    Love the stockings, they are my absolute favorite. I'm handicapped and they work well physically and mentally (I find them uplifting). My only complaint is that the nylon socks don't come in more designs. The cotton are comfortable but they leave the design imprint on my legs.

    Simply Perfect! (Wide Calf)

    I *never* write reviews, but I've taken the time to write this one because this product truly does exceed expectations - in EVERY way. I am a very large person, with very large calves and pretty consistent problems with edema in my feet, ankles, and calves. The wide-leg medium fits PERFECTLY. They are the *first* pair of compression socks that is compression-snug everywhere, fits over my calves, and does not extend beyond my toes. They fit like custom socks! As important to mention: I can actually get them on without 30 minutes of rolling on the floor huffing and puffing. With the proper technique, it's absolutely doable and only minimally more effort than typical socks. This is CRITICAL as it means I am actually willing to use them. Other socks take way too much effort, and the effort prevents me from wearing them. ALSO: the socks are naturally stretched wide to fit over my wide calves. But this does NOTHING to distort or diminish the pattern/look of the socks. In other brands, they appear vibrant and unbroken in the package, but when actually on, there is a white lining that appears between the individual ribs of the sock, so that they appear VERY faded and interrupted. These have no such issue. When they stretch the space that expands is exactly the same color and pattern, so everything appears as saturated and crisp while wearing as it does in the package. They are the perfect height. They reach all the way to my knees, but not beyond (if compression socks are too tall they can bunch beneath the knee and be painful on the top of the calf). They are lightweight and breathable! It's summer here, hot and humid, and I don't think twice before putting them on. They are comfortable to wear all day - 8 hours easy. And most importantly, they are extremely effective in preventing and treating my edema. My feet feel SO much better - more flexible/less stiff, less hot, no tingling, and more energy. I will again and again and again buy these socks, and recommend them to everyone I know. ESPECIALLY THE WIDE CALF VERSION.
