Missoula, Mont. – VIM & VIGR, the innovative company known for stylish and functional compression legwear is excited to announce a new partnership with Mr. Checkout. “Compression benefits everyone, but unfortunately many people sacrifice these benefits because of the less than stylish stigma around compression wear,” said Michelle Huie, founder and president of VIM & VIGR. “Our team continues to innovate with new products, styles and designs so that people from all walks of life can experience the health benefits of compression wear in a way that’s reflective of their personal style. We’re delighted to have the opportunity to reach a whole new customer base with our products via this new partnership.”
Research shows that wearing compression socks while sitting at a desk or working on your feet encourages circulation and re-oxygenation and eliminates the pooling of blood at ankles and feet that often results in swelling and muscle fatigue.
Using a proprietary advanced Gradient PressureTM knitting technology, VIM & VIGR ‘cracked the code’ and created a manufacturing process that allows the use of traditionally favored sock materials in fashionable designs that incorporate the therapeutic advantages of compression socks. VIM & VIGR’s high-quality compression legwear offers two levels of compression: 15-20 mmHg (millimeter per mercury) and 20-30 mmHg, which is a firmer medical-grade compression level to provide extra support. Optimal for most is an everyday compression level of 15-20 mmHg with graduated pressure that works to improve circulation back up the leg, perfect for every day, all day use. A compression level of 20-30 mmHg boasts the same benefits as the moderate level, only slightly intensified. According to AbsoluteMedical.com, some instances in which you should consider upping your compression dose may include post-surgical and post-sclerotherapy, if you have moderate to severe edema or lymphatic edema, and if you have superficial thrombophlebitis. Additionally, firm compression is effective in preventing DVT, orthostatic hypotension and moderate to severe varicose veins, particularly during pregnancy.
When asked to compare VIM & VIGR socks to what’s been historically available, company founder Michelle Huie said, “If you look at the compression sock market, compression socks are developed with a specific purpose in mind, such as long flights, medical recovery, or extensive workouts. Our goal is to make compression socks comfortable and fashionable enough that you want to wear them all day, every day. Our bodies are meant to move but most of us have jobs that require to sit or stand for long periods of time and that’s when we’re hardest on our bodies.”
VIM & VIGR’s line of high-quality compression wear combines innovative technology and fashionable designs to help energize the legs, prevent swelling, alleviate fatigue, and aid in speedier muscle recovery after tough workouts or from injuries. Available in patterns ranging from florals to a pop of polka dots and in a variety of fabrics including cotton, nylon, merino wool and moisture-wick nylon, each pair of VIM & VIGR socks is FDA approved and utilizes integrally-knit graduated compression technology to help people look and feel like the best version of themselves.
