Accurate measurement and sizing of your compression socks ensures maximum support and effectiveness. Follow our simple tips and guidelines on how to measure for best fit depending on your compression needs. 

MEASUREMENT GUIDELINES FOR EVERYDAY COMPRESSION SOCKS (15-20 mmHg)

  • Always measure against bare skin
  • Take measurement as early as possible for minimal swelling
  • Pull tape tight without constriction for the most accurate measurement
  • Length measurements should be taken from the ground up 
  • Measurements must be taken with the foot flat on the floor and the leg at a right angle to the foot
  • Ankle measurement – the most important measurement for medical grade compression socks
  • The majority of people fit into our standard shoe size
  • If unsure of size take measurement at the ankle
  • Foot bed – lots of stretch for a comfortable fit

How to Measure

Step 1: Measure the circumference of the ankle at the narrowest part of the ankle, just above the ankle bone (Point A).

Step 2: Measure the circumference of the calf at the widest part of the calf (Point B). 

Step 3: Use the 20-30 mmHg sizing chart to determine your size.

Step 4: Ensure that the sock band lies flat and that the top of the band sits 2 finger widths below the crease of the knee. Never pull the sock up into the crease behind your knee as this may limit the circulation.
