How to measure for compression socks: Sit the person down with their foot flat on the floor and their knee at a 90 degree angle. This contracts the calf so we get it at its biggest measurement. In this position, the person can measure themselves accurately or be measured by someone else. ​You want to measure the ankle circumference at the smallest point (above the ankle joint, not around the maleoli - just the skinniest part of the bottom of the leg). You then want the calf circumference at the widest part. Shin length is measured from the pit of the knee down to the floor. Height of the person in cm. Shoe size in UK sizing. You want the tape measure to hug the skin but not be digging in. If you have any difficulties or are unsure, give us a call on 0207 326 0900.

Worn for years

Been wearing the socks for years following a bout of blood clots after hip replacement Tried others with mixed results. I always come back to these and still rely on them


    Good enough

    I was somewhat disappointed with these: having checked my size with the chart, what arrived was terribly difficult to get on and so hard to get off I almost had to use scissors. I think the cotton element does not help with flexibility. If you are considering these, have a word with customer care, or consider buying a size bigger - not an option in my case as I was trying the largest size anyway...


      Happy customer

      Very nice sock comfortable easy to put on good support I think these socks will be good in warm weather.


        Are you satisfied with our products?

        “Great customer service with valuable specialist attention to medical and aesthetic detail presented in their wide range of products.”



          Bought two pair and so far they seem to be up to the job. have not washed them yet, had them less than a week but prompt service and certainly comfortable to wear. Quite thin which means they take a shorter pair of thicker socks over without any problems. useful in winter. If still OK into the new year will certainly buy some more.



            I bought these compression socks for a Holiday. The outbound journey (without these socks) was 25 hours of flights/airports and my legs felt like absolute tree trunks after that. I was in agony for 3 days while my body recovered. On the return journey, I had the socks and wore them for the same, long journey. I got home and felt perfect. No discomfort, no pain. Aside from the jetlag, I could've almost believed I hadn't just had such a long journey.





                VR City

                Bought theae as going on a lomg haul flight and recovering from a broken ankle
                Firsty they are a great fit as i am only a 2.5 -3 shoe size
                They are a great fit all round
                Have felt a great improvement in my ankle
                Wear these socks all day as they are so comfortable
                Really pleased with them so much that i have ordered a second pair
                Customer service is great


                  Better than most.

                  Although firm and comfortable the socks are a little small for me - but far superior to anything I have so far bought online. Can be a bit of a struggle getting off (even though I gave the precise measurements for me) so I would suggest considering adding 5 cms to any measurements supplied.


                    Very comfortable

                    New purchase, certainly noticed a difference wearing them all day when standing doing my voluntary work. Well made and good looking


                      VR City

                      I decided to have a change from 'dotted' and I am really pleased with VR City to wear with trousers/jeans. Very comfortable all day long. Have used VitalActive for years and they are great. Delivery is superb. I am now 79 and hope to use the company for many more years.


                        I would write a positive review if I could but your link takes me to the purchase page!?

                        Your compression socks are excellent. I tried another kind (from Denmark) earlier and they did not apply pressure evenly round the ankle. I have now ordered three pairs from you.


                          Great Find!

                          I have been using Vital Active Compression Socks for the last five (5) years. Prior to this I was getting swollen ankles and feet with long car journeys which has now ceased and I use vital Active Compression Socks for everyday wear. They are a fantastic product with provide excellent customer service. I recommend using them if you suffer with swollen ankles and feet.

                            I purchased a pair of the VR City four months ago. They are light weight and comfortable. I wear them all day at work and for leisure. The socks look good and stay looking good but more importantly, they function extremely well. The fit is superb, which is partly to do with the care the company takes regarding sizing and the advice they provide. I have found this product to be supportive and very comfortable and I will certainly be investing in more in the near future.


                              Fabulous all day sock

                              I wear these socks on a daily basis. 38 years old, fit and healthy - I find that my daily commute on the train (40 mins) and on foot (20 mins) each way feels much more comfortable wearing them. Great for recovery post gym sessions as well.


                                VR - City

                                I find these compression socks very comfortable to wear throughout the day. I initially wore them, following a day of heavy cycle training, to help improve my recovery; l felt the benefit immediately. I also walk between 2 to 4 miles as part of my daily commute and they have certainly improved my fatigue levels too. I certainly will be purchasing additional pairs over the forthcoming months so that l can wear them on a more frequent basis.


                                  Very Pleased

                                  Found these really comfortable and was surprised what a difference they made at the end of the day. Will certainly consider for everyday wear.


                                    New Wearer of Support Socks

                                    Comfortable, general purpose socks but I find them a little tight around the top after wearing them all day and they would benefit from a bit more support around the ankles.


                                      Great Comfortable Socks

                                      The socks are some of the most comfortable compression socks I have worn! I actually want to get another few pairs.


                                        VR City, comfortably the best

                                        Hospital has recommended that i wear compression socks. While waiting for a pair to be supplied I bought the VR City. These socks are so comfortable I'm coming back for more. Also impressed by the help given by the Vital Active staff, couldn't be bettered.


                                          A delight!

                                          Following medical advice to wear "compression socks", various products at High Street stores were viewed but rejected. Google search produced Vital Active who have been superb in their advice, product and delivery. The 'City' range are comfortable, smart and a comfort to wear in giving necessary support without being obtrusive.



                                            I have a sedentary job. During the course of the day my ankles would swell quite badly so decided to try compression socks; they do exactly as described. At the end of a day there's very little swelling and a great reduction in fluid retention. A second pair.was purchased. Extremely pleased with the socks.


                                              VR City

                                              Product and service very good.


                                                Will Buy Again!

                                                I purchased a pair of the VR City and will certainly buy more. They are contemporary looking (for those who mind that sort of thing) but ultimately are perfect in their function. They are a great fit and have had an immediate impact on my venous return related symptoms (aching, swelling etc). They've had such a positive effect that I keep them on as long as I can and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who has circulation related lower leg discomfort.


                                                  Just what the doctor ordered

                                                  Had been advised to wear compression socks on a daily basis as I have a sedentary job. Comfortable after extended wear and certainly do the job of stopping my legs swelling.


                                                    Mr David Foulger

                                                    I have bought two pairs of these socks and am very happy with them. Not only do they give good support, but are available in a variety of patterns and colours, (I wish there were more choices). They are now my regular sock wear.
