Thank you to VIM & VIGR for sending compression socks for review in exchange for my honest opinion.
As I have mentioned before, I work full time as a school nurse. I also am currently battling breast cancer. Unfortunately the chemotherapy that I was prescribed gave me neuropathy in my feet. This had me looking at compression socks to try to help with the numbness and tingling from the neuropathy. I was thankful to get the chance to partner with VIM & VIGR to try out two pairs of their compression socks!
What Are The Benefits Of Compression Socks?
VIM & VIGR compression socks help to reduce swelling, increase circulation, alleviate achiness and heaviness, aid in muscle recovery, ease discomfort, energize legs and protect the overall health of your legs. VIM & VIGR socks work by applying therapeutic pressure from the ankle that gradually eases as it moves up the leg – it is called graduated compression.
Graduated compression is displayed in ranges. The higher the number, the stronger the support level. 20-30 mmHg socks offer more support and feel tighter than 15-20 mmHg socks.
15-20 MMHG Provides support that is perfect for every day wear. They are great for mild to moderate Edema, travel, pregnancy, achiness, and spider or varicose veins. 20-30 MMHG Provides support that is recommended for Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Edema, Lymphedema, pre- and post-surgical applications and moderate varicose veins.
30-40 MMHG Provides support that is usually prescribed by a doctor. They are used for treating conditions such as DVT, Venous Insufficiency, Lymphedema and Dysautonomia.
I received the 15-20 MMHG socks in the Petite Heart design, as well as the 20-30mmHg Black in Moisture Wick Nylon. These are not your ‘normal’ compression socks. The only compression socks I had ever had were the ones from the hospital that I got when I had my babies. These aren’t even in the same category as the hospital compression socks. They are so much better! The graduated compression from ankle to calf really makes a difference. Since I am on my feet much of the day these were very helpful in keeping my legs from feeling as tired. Although they don’t take my neuropathy away, I do definitely feel a difference when I have the socks on versus when I do not. These socks wash up really well and are very comfortable for all day wear. I have surgery next week and I plan to alternate between these two pairs of socks after surgery to make sure I’m keeping my circulation in tip top shape.
