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.

The best customer service I have experienced & it takes a lot to impress me.

I recently started a new job in retail which means I need to be on my feet for long periods of time & because I am overweight my legs swell up causing my blood circulation to struggle to get fluids back up my legs to my heart which is not very good for my health.
Previously I have purchased a pair of compression flight socks over the counter which was not a fun experience as they were a poor fit, so when I did an internet search engine to find a company to purchase compression socks for work, I was NOT expecting to find a company who was so keen to offer the best service to everyone that contacts them.

I was asked for my measurements to ensure a good fit as well as being offered advice on how to moisturise my very dry legs which worked a treat after only a couple of days.
The advisor on the phone was very polite & very knowledgeable about the products & the issues related to wearing these types of socks.

Although the socks are more expensive than high street product, I am very happy to pay a bit more for a better fit & for the advise that I received.

I initially purchased a pair of the mens VR City & VR Original Superfit on advice from the company which allowed me to choose the one that best suited me as the products are different between designs and material compositions.

As I was so pleased with the result of my swollen legs looking & feeling good after a hard day at work with the socks I am going to order 3 more pairs of the Original Superfit.

I would be very happy to recommend this company.

Grade 

Super-comfortable

I purchased two pairs of these socks and found them super-comfortable with an even feeling of compression throughout. My only criticism is that they wore away at the toe quite quickly, but other than that I would certainly recommend them.

Grade 

Great customer service

I spent a considerable amount of time discussing my requirements with a very knowledgeable service agent - ultimately suggesting which product & size would be most suitable for my particular condition (Peripheral Neuropathy) – most impressed!

Greatest Flight Socks

My wife and I have previously purchased off the shelf flight socks and have really struggled to pull these on and given up.

Hence I decided to do some research and I am so glad this was done.

I had a long discussion with an adviser at VitalActive who was very thorough, helpful and wanted to make sure I was purchasing the correct product for both my wife and self.

I was particularly concerned for my wife who has suffers from swollen feet, calfs and ankles.

The advier made sure I had all the correct measurements and was then able to talk me through the range and end up with the recommended products.

I ended up ordering these and 2 other products Clara for my wife and VR Ultra Comfort for myself and these are reviewed separately under the make of sock.

All the socks arrived next day even though sent ordinary post.

My wife tried this pair on and was for the first time able to pull a flight sock on and agreed with me that the quality was superb as was the fit.

In fact my wife has ordered another sock in the range on the strength of this product.

Whilst these socks are probably more expensive than the high street off the shelf ones they are well worth the price. They are also suitable for wearing everyday to help control swelling etc

Unbelievable Help for my Swollen Legs!

After major heart surgery 5 years ago I have suffered from foot and ankle swelling although the operation was successful. Further to my discussions with you on the 16th May 2017 and accepting your recommendation, you supplied a pair of PS 01 compression support socks, which arrived the following day.
The results have been beyond expectations. After wearing them for 14 hours there was little evidence of any swelling, an un-believable achievement in one day.
Thank you for your help and excellent delivery service, my intention is to purchase more from you so that I have socks available whilst the others are being washed.

Grade 

Great Help for Peripheral Neuropathy

I have only had the VR Original Superfit Socks a few days, for my condition of Peripheral Neuropathy, but they have taken the pressure off the back of my legs, and are supporting my ankles more positively. I look forward to making life a little easier.

Marvellous Socks

Dear Customer Support
A month or so ago you sent me some VR Original Superfit compression socks and they are definitely reducing the swelling in my legs.

I would be grateful if I could have 2 more pairs , one blue one maroon please. I trust you have the measurements.

Many Thanks

Second Order Great socks!

These are extremely good compression socks. I contacted the company as instructed as I was taking a long haul flight. I was advised as to which type of socks would be suitable and they arrived promptly.
I now wear the socks every day and find that they help my circulatory problems enormously.

I'd like to reorder

Dear Vital Active

Thank you for the above socks which you recommended they are excellent. My legs have a different feel to them already.

I would be grateful if you could send me 2 more identical pairs -navy blue.

Grade 

Comfortable and supporting

I was looking for a pair of socks to be used for a long haul flight, found this web site and discussed with Barrington. I am a size 16 shoe so cannot buy 'off the shelf', he advised size S3 would be sufficient. I bought one pair and they are very comfortable although supportive at the same time, very pleased with these.

I have now ordered another pair for myself and a pair for my wife.

If you need a good supportive compression sock then look no further, I can fully recommend these.

Grade 

They are what they say they are

A comfortable flight sock that is easy to put on and with a good length. Highly recommended.

Grade 

Thank you

To Jonathan, Customer Support at Compression Advisory. Thank you for all your help and prompt attention. The socks have arrived safely. Your firm is one of the best I've ever dealt with. I thank the day I found your advertisement in the Guardian. The socks have been a tremendous help.

Grade 

Having recently been diagnosed with stasis dermatitis, the main issue being a hugely swollen and heavy right leg, working as a bus driver and even getting about was becoming increasingly painful and difficult. Your compression socks have been a godsend. After a day or two you don't even realise you're wearing them. Can't recommend them enough.

Grade 

A huge thank you

Dear Compression Advisory,



I would like to say a huge thank you for your help in supplying very satisfactory compression socks.

When a leg ulcer was diagnosed, compression socks were prescribed as a method of reducing the risk of further ulcers in the future.

Having found your website, I was very impressed with the range of colours and types of sock available.



Barrington was extremely helpful in identifying the most suitable range and I have been thoroughly impressed and worn the VR gctech socks on a daily basis ever since.



As a member of the clergy, I was particularly pleased that I could buy socks to match the liturgical seasons of the church.

So my green socks for Ordinary time and red for special saints days, the socks keep me standing at the font and the graveside and are a valuable talking point in the parish.



I look forward to ordering some purple socks for Advent!



Thank you very much and kind regards.



Grade 

I love them!

I love these socks. I'm reassured that they're going to fit by the wonderful My Measurements section and they fit better than ones I was fitted for in the chemist.



I would recommend them to anyone. They're comfortable, stylish, affordable and last better than what I was prescribed.

Grade 

Very Pleased

Bought these together with a pair of VR City. Theses are equally comfortable and a bit thinner so can be worn inside another sock. Fit well was really happy with the fitting advice that I was given.

Grade 

Great product and service

I'm really impressed with the quick service I received - ordered one afternoon and the socks arrived the next morning. I'd looked at the size guide, but decided in the end just to put in my measurements on the order. Just as well, because the socks I received were a different size to the ones I would have picked! I bought them for flying long haul - I've only worn them for a shot rime at home to test them out but they are super comfy and look like they'll last a good while. Overall I'm really impressed with the product and service and look forward to wearing them when flying long haul on Friday!

Grade 

Good price, excellent value.

These are high quality compression socks, enter your details and within a few days they arrive, what could be better.

VR Super Fit

Just back from Oz trip. These socks were so comfortable I was unaware I had them on. Just the job. I have long thin legs (a la Peter Crouch) and the fitting advice I received at the telephone was invaluable. Whoopeeee!

Grade 

Bar original super fit, navy

After buying and using some "Off the shelf" flights socks, they bring back bad memories on a trip to Oz. We had to remove them in the end as they were so tight behind the knee we thought they would cause more harm than good.

I have been advised again by a consultant that it would be a good idea on another trip to Oz in a few weeks to wear them for ankle swelling I always get when flying.

So, I did research and stumbled across this website which I am very impressed with. I have picked the original super fit socks purely because they were the only ones I could have in navy. (I want to co-ordinate)! They did seem a bit expensive to me at

Feedback on Vital Active Sock

I'm really please with these socks. The services was excellent, indeed I even received a call to discuss my original order (i.e. based on my measurements), which resulted in a change in socks that I received. The socks themselves have relieved the ankle and calf swelling I usually get when sat on flights or in all-day meetings, and I'm planning to order more.

Grade 

Very pleased

I have used these socks for years. They are comfortable, non-binding, very supportive and _much_ easier to put on than the heavy off-the-shelf travel socks sold elsewhere. They are worth the price. The color selection is very welcome, too!

VR-Original Super-Fit

I purchase these socks for my husband as he had been advised by hospital consultant to use 'flight socks'. He has very fragile skin and the ones available from the chemist were too rough and difficult to put on. He thinks these are brilliant and extremely comfortable causing him no problems at all and reducing the swelling in his legs and feet as promised. The service is excellent and very supportive.

Excellent

Great quality and certainly help swelling after my bloody clot. Thank you

Comfortable and reduced swelling!

I purchased these as I was advised to find a good quality pair of travel socks for a 4 hour flight. I'd had varicose vein surgery 10 years ago and it had left me with a swollen foot, ankle and leg, and 'leaky veins.' I 'trialled ' them on a long car journey this weekend and couldn't believe how comfortable they were. I wore them all day and that evening, my foot and ankle were a much more 'normal' size. I shall definitely be buying more!

Excellent products and service

Bought some socks a few years ago for use whilst flying but ended up using them recently for when I'm driving on long trips. Very good socks which ensure ones ankles don't get swollen. More impressive though was the service. I ordered a different type and had a call from someone who posed me a few questions and recommended I stuck with these ones. If only bigger companies cared about their customers health as much as this one we would have much more confidence in buying online.

VR Original Super-Fit

After purchasing these socks for my husband he had such good results I decided to buy some for myself. Even with the hot weather they are still comfortable to wear and my feet and ankles are much less swollen.

QUALITY SREVICE AND PRODUCT

Ordered a pair of socks for my husband who has damage to one of his ankles causing swelling. I ordered a different type and received a call from a gentleman who asked a few questions regarding the use and who would be using them and was advised that the type ordered would probably not be the best. I was very impressed as this saved me buying yet another pair which were to difficult for my husband to get over his rather large calves. I am now about to order another 2 pair as he is so very impressed with the service and the comfort of these socks.

VR - Original Super-Fit

Took a while to review these as I wanted to give my opinion after wearing them as opposed to receiving them.

They were very hard to put on at first, as they were so tight, but now, they're very comfortable. I suppose I'd got used to my old hospital socks, that after about 10+ years were getting loose, and forgot how tight new one's were.

Delivery was very quick. Received mine in a few days from order.

Overall, yes, I would recommend this company & this product.

Grade 

Original Super Fit

My measurements were outside those on the standard chart and had to call for further advice. The advice I received was very professional whilst being friendly and non-judgemental. The socks themselves, whilst tricky to put on, were well worth the effort and money. No more swollen ankles and feet for me after flying. Would recommend these to anyone. Thank you so much.

Grade 

Great range and customer service

I recently contacted vital active by telephone for information about their socks. The person I spoke to was most helpful and asked the reason I wanted the socks, so I explained to him that I recently had heart surgery and would be travelling to Thailand in November and that I have oedema. His advice was excellent, he obviously knew his subject and advised me on what to buy. Now I have NHS support socks standard black issue, but I can hardly go to the beach with shorts and black socks !! I can already hear the cries of expat regulars shouting NHS NHS ! So for my trip I shall be acquiring a couple of pairs of socks which should go well with my khaki shorts. In the mean time I am wearing around the house a nice red pair of vr original superfit, which arrived quickly by free post. Today I ordered a pair of Oxford socks in subtle hooped colours.

I can heartily endorse the excellent range of support socks and the help given to me on the telephone by the staff.

compression socks

I bought these for a long haul flight to Japan. It was my first experience of compression flight socks. I normally suffer from swollen feet/legs. The socks worked a treat. Yes, they were tight to put on but that's the whole point. I also put them over my short socks, but they were fine. Beautiful green colour looked great! Fast, efficient delivery. Would definately recommend.

VR - Original Super-Fit

As Clare above, my measurements were outside those on the standard chart and had to call for further advice. I bought two pairs of the recommended socks and didn't seem able to get them on. I called to query the size and after a further check was told that the size sent was correct. There was also a link sent tome for U Tube which showed how to correctly put the socks on. I then managed to put them on and they are very comfortable. Suggest maybe the company encloses simplified instructions to put the socks on.

First experience

I have purchased socks in anticipation of flights to Australia to visit my family.

I found that the advice, support and information on both the website and 'phone was helpful and professional. My questions were answered promptly and courteously.

I have already passed the VitalActive link on to my family and friends.

Grade 

Original Superfit

These give excellent compression and are great for everyday wear with trousers. However, If your legs are going to be seen and you want to appear 'normal' for special occasions, then I would choose the Clara 140. I must say that VitalActive are great at working out the size you need from the measurements you give them.

Grade 

Perfect

I needed these for a long haul flight. I have bought other flight socks in the past but have found them too tight at the knee which troubled me. These gave good support exactly where you needed them to but were comfortable at the knee. I wore them for the whole 23 hr journey and was comfortable the whole time. Having them made to measure made all the difference. Well worth the money for the comfort and peace of mind

Excellent

Just the job! I now have four pairs to wear, which, by using daily, give my legs wonderful support and stop the knee pain that, until I used them, was constant.

Grade 

They feel ok.

This is my first pair of flight socks, bought to wear on a 12hr flight. I chose them because they offered different calf sizes. I have tried them on but not worn them for any length of time. They fit well, although it was difficult to open them up enough to pull them over my foot. If my arthritis was worse I don't know if I could have pulled them on. I have deducted one star because the seam round the toe is a little uncomfortable.
