Cute Compression

It might sound like an oxymoron, but cute compression socks do exist, thanks to VIM & VIGR. The designs from VIM & VIGR are more than just good looking. Built into the sophisticated tights and classic socks is graduated compression. It begins at the ankle and eases up the calf, which can help increase circulation while keeping aches and fatigue at bay. Founder Michelle Huie found herself needing the support and circulation-boosting benefits that compression socks are known for, but was turned off by the choices—or, really, the lack thereof. The typical athletic and medical looks inspired Michelle to create styles that mimic traditional socks, with stealthy support built in. Now legs can feel better and look good at the same time—which we think will put a skip in your step.

    Hi everyone! I'm Michelle Huie, founder of VIM & VIGR. I'm excited and proud to be featured as today's Grommet launch. My goal in creating VIM & VIGR was simple: help people be proactive with their health by wearing a pair of socks (and look cute while doing it). I'd love to answer any questions you have!

    I am a tall woman & most compression socks end @ mid calf not just below the knee as shown. How do your socks compare or do you have a taller version?

    @Susan Hi Susan! We do not currently offer a "tall" version, but find that our taller customers generally have success wearing our cotton line - the fabric is more flexible and has a bit more give. Hope that helps!

    I noticed that your compression tights and the leg sleeve don't come any bigger than a medium/large. Are you planning to make them larger for XL and up?

  • Michelle

    3/9/2017 11:28 AM

    Hi Patty! We're planning on expanding the sizing on tights within the next year, and are looking into adding a wide calf option of sleeves around the same timeline. Both products do have a lot of stretch though, and if you're interested in tights - we recommend the Opaque Solid - XL and up members of our team wear them and find them comfortable.

    I have lymphedema and am having trouble finding compression stockings in an XL size. My left leg swells during the day so I need 21". Will you be coming out with an XL size in the future? The stockings purchased through vascular surgeon are too tight, slide down my legs, and are so expensive. Yours are adorable!

  • Michelle
    Michelle – Special Guest
    3/9/2017 11:32 AM

    Thanks Josephine! Glad you like the styles - we do too :). We do offer a wide-calf size on all of our styles currently. They fit between an 18" - 22" calf size, and have a strong band at the top that doesn't pinch and prevents the annoying slide-down. We hear from customers that the cotton is most comfortable for wide-calf folks. We encourage people new to our brand to try all the fabric options though, and see what feels best for them! Hope that helps!

  • Michelle
    Michelle – Special Guest
    3/9/2017 11:35 AM

    Hi Linda - the styles featured here on the Grommet are 15-20 mmHg, or "everyday compression" as we like to call it. We do make select styles in a higher medical grade compression level (20-30 mmHg) and recommend that you encourage the Grommet to carry it as well. Thanks!

  • Stacey

    3/9/2017 12:26 PM

    Thanks for the tip on asking Grommet to carry the higher medical grade as I need 20-30 mmHg for my swollen feet and ankles. No one has cute socks at this grade and I'd rather wear something nice than plain white, black, or nude.

  • Chiara

    3/9/2017 12:46 PM

    @stacey - we totally get it! That's why we're launching more and more of our cute styles in the higher grade.

    @Chiara - great feedback, thanks! We'll definitely look into launching a higher grade than 20-30 in the future.

    Hi Keithly - all compression socks can be a bit challenging to get on, but we've tried to make it as simple as possible, and provide detailed instructions on the best way to put them on right on the packaging of every pair. Again, I'd recommend trying multiple fabric options and seeing what feels best for you - you'll get the same compression benefits in each, but some people find the cotton easier to put on and more comfortable, while others prefer the nylon. Thanks for your question!

  • Michelle
    Michelle – Special Guest
    3/9/2017 1:40 PM

    Hi Ann - great question. The key to sizing your compression socks is taking into consideration both shoe size, and calf circumference. For example, women's size medium socks will fit someone with a shoe size of 7.5 - 9.5, and a calf circumference of 12-16". Unless you find you generally are more comfortable in wide-calf boots, these should be perfect. If your calf is a bit wider (up to 22") we recommend the wide calf option, which is a more "one size fits most" in the shoe size. I hope that helps!

    Hi Deborah! I completely understand your concerns - creating a high-quality product is incredibly important to me and the whole VIM & VIGR team. We choose the highest quality fabrics and put every product through rigorous testing and a four step quality control process before it leaves our warehouse in Montana. We also back everything with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

    I think our customers say it best though...here are few quotes from them about the tights: "they look fabulous, and they feel fantastic,' "comfortable for everyday use and keep my blood circulating all day long!" "Totally worth it!"

    Thanks for your comment!
