Compression socks are one of the most popular items of clothing in the world. They’re designed to help prevent blood clots, a common problem for people who have prolonged periods of sitting or standing. Compression socks also provide relief from varicose veins and swelling. They come in many styles, including knee-highs for women, crew-length for men, and over-the-calf versions that cover your entire leg. The best way to measure compression socks is by calf circumference, which you can find on our size chart next to each product description. This article will show you how to take a proper measurement of your calf circumference. You may also visit at for more details

How to Measure Compression Socks?

It is important to take accurate measurements before ordering compression socks to ensure the best fit. You can measure for compression socks by taking an accurate measurement of your calf circumference by wrapping a measuring tape around the thickest part of your calf. Once you know your measurement, consult the sizing chart on the product page of each compression sock you’re interested in to find the best size for you. Follow these steps to ensure you order the right size of compression socks:

Measure Your Calf Circumference

The first thing to measure is your calf circumference, which you can do using a tape measure or a piece of string. Measure the circumference where your leg bends inwards near the ankle, and then use this measurement to consult the sizing chart on the product page for each compression sock you’re interested in. Most companies will offer different size options depending on your calf circumference.

Consider Your Foot Size

If you have small feet (size 5 or smaller) then it may be worth considering a “tall” size compression sock that offers more length near the bottom of the sock to accommodate for small ankles and feet. You may also need a taller sock if you have large feet (size 10+) to compensate for the extra space in front of your ankle.

Discuss With a Doctor

If you have any ongoing medical conditions such as chronic swelling or varicose veins then it’s important to ask for advice from your doctor before wearing compression socks. While the vast majority of people can wear a standard size, some people with more complex conditions will need to have their measurements taken by a professional.

Wear your new socks and enjoy!

Now that you’ve found the perfect pair of compression socks, we recommend wearing them to see if they are a good fit. Sometimes compression socks can feel too tight at first and can cause discomfort, so make sure that they are comfortable before wearing them for an extended period of time. For your first pair, we suggest wearing them for a couple of hours to get used to the feeling of compression.
