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.

My Vital Active socks

Dear Barrington,

Further to our conversation I am now writing to say how pleased I am with the VR Ultra Comfort socks I bought from you a few months ago.

As it was the first time I had bought from you I was a little unsure about the correct sizing, but you gave me a call and provided very clear advice. I received the socks rapidly and have been wearing them most days, in great comfort.

Comparisons can be invidious, but compared with the socks I received via the NHS, yours are far superior and, apparently, at a much more sensible price.

I have ordered two more pairs today, which probably confirms my satisfaction with your product.

Thanks for all your help.

Best wishes,

John H


    Just the job

    Great Class II product and terrific service from Vital Active. A little tricky to put on at first, but once mastered certainly well worth the effort!


      Very effective but difficult to remove

      Following ankle surgery I had previously used the lighter VR superfit (size S3) to help control post-surgery oedema,These were fine and easy to get on and off over a painful and swollen ankle. After a few months with the pain eased I decided to try the VR proplus + recovery to further reduce the oedema. Checked my measurements and ordered the indicated size (B3). ALthough very effective at reducing the swelling they were difficult to put on and very difficult to remove. I may have to go back to the lighter VR superfit.


        Needed for Hospital Visit

        Excellent service, phone call from company checked my requirements, when I mentioned I needed the for hospital visit took them straight to Post Office and received them next day.


          VR Proplus Recovery

          I suffer from chronic muscle tightness in my calves and hamstrings. After a few days of wear of the recovery socks, I noticed a significant decrease in tightness.


            Just what I was looking for

            I've had searched all over the internet for sport socks with indicated medical compression. This website was the only one that met my requirements. I would only recommend to make those socks design more sporty - with more colors and patterns.


              Bought for my other half. Order came the next day. washed well and dried quickly..without spinning or wringing. Of course he hasn't tried them on yet, but they look a much better fit than the previous make.



                I purchased these socks to help my recovery from running. I was impressed that I was able to input my measurements and get the correct size sent to me - they are a good fit. They are more comfortable than I expected. I have just completed a half marathon 3 weeks after the London Marathon so the next few days will tell if these are helping, but I'm pleased so far! Also has excellent advice from VR via twitter.


                  Great product

                  Normally, I wear the Original Super-Fit socks, but for extra compression, I use ProPlus Recovery. They are strong but comfortable and much easier to put on than other medical-grade compression socks I have tried. If you get the right size, which is easy to do on this website, you will get very effective compression for the legs without any discomfort in the feet and toes. An excellent product.



                    Would recommend .... I had these on after my half Marathon Race . Felt very comfortable used them for about 3


                      VR - ProPlus Recovery

                      Having had 2 DVT's which caused major swelling every day from the knee down.I was amazed to find that these socks stopped the swelling and the fatigue that I felt. I wear them every day which allows me to stand for several hours which I was unable to do before.The quality is excellent, they do not ladder and keep their shape.



                        Great product. Long term sufferer of cramp in the calfs but after a consistently wearing after football matches I no longer suffer with this problem. Highly recommend.


                          Excellent value

                          I am delighted with my 2pairs of white socks and one pair red.they are easier to put on compared to nhs variety,and seem to do the same job,the red socks have been used and washed continuly for the past couple of months and have still retained the colour,I reccomend them highly.

                            Aid to post-surgery rehabilitation

                            Excellent product in minimising swelling following complex foot surgery. Reasonably easy to get on comfortable to wear throughout the day. Would recommend highly.


                              VR Pro plus recovery

                              I usually have really tight calves due to cycling and being on my feet all day long. I use these socks most evening after working and commuting and they recover much quicker than usual. Great fit, great product. Highly recommended!


                                Excellent Product

                                Blown away by excellent personal service and advice, which was totally unexpected for an online order. Been running with the sleeves and feeling great. Easy to put on and take off and very comfortable. Also used Pro Plus socks for a 12-hour flight; felt great throughout and after the flight. Sleeves and socks look cool too.


                                  Don't hesitate. Get some

                                  My physio recommended I get these to wear after running. I'm so surprised how comfortable they are. I put them on after running and forget about them for the rest of the day. I've always had a problem with cold lower legs but not any more. They're warm as toast but not *too* hot. Just snug. I'm ordering some more to wear while running. And probably some more to wear afterwards. So pleased with them.


                                    VR PRO PLUS socks

                                    The email support I received was excellent and gave me greater onfidence that this company really know what they are talking about if buying these socks because of a DVT. I found this model very supportive after and during physical activities such as power walking and cycling.


                                      ProPlus Recovery

                                      Needed these for a 9 hour flight after running a half marathon. Great assistance on the phone to get a suitable pair of socks and they worked brilliantly.


                                        VR PRO PLUS RECOVERY

                                        Bought these after a recommendation from a friend. They are far more comfortable than the stockings prescribed and actually stay up! Pointless wearing the alternatives that just seem to fall down around my ankles.


                                          Game changer

                                          After recently being made an incomplete paraplegic due to a back injury, the full understanding of what this condition has on my body as a whole is coming to the fore. One of the associated conditions I never gave thought to is foot/ankle swelling. I


                                            Worth the extra compression

                                            On recommendation from the team at VitalActive, I gave the ProPlus Recovery socks a go for attending some conferences and trade shows. They definitely made a difference at the end of the day, with little fatigue felt after standing all day. A good sock to have in the drawer for these type of events!


                                              Legs feel good

                                              My legs feel good at the end of a busy shift and they stay up unlike others I bought. So far, no oedema. Wear them for dog walking - legs feel less tired.
