I love love love my compression socks from Vim&Vigr.
(And you will, too, because you have a chance to win two pairs!)
Lemme tell you a little bit about why these are so important to your travels…
You know what DVT is, right? Please say yes. OK, if you said no…deep vein thrombosis is a condition where a blood clot forms, typically in one of your legs after prolonged sitting (ahem, like on a long flight). It can break off and enter your lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism. Yikes!
But I’m not telling you this to make you afraid. I just want you to take precautions on those long flights, such as getting up often to stretch your legs and…wearing compression socks!
Vim&Vigr specializes in compression legwear that’s perfect for both travel and daily wear. I wore a pair on a recent trip and found them to be soooo comfortable. So comfortable in fact, that I wear them as my non-travel socks, too. I find they are particularly wonderful after a long run (but you don’t have to be a runner to enjoy them).
The ones I have are considered “mild compression” with a 15-20 rating, but if you have any underlying conditions, you might consider something with a medical grade of 20-30 for a fit that’s a bit tighter. In addition to socks, they have tights (which are perfect under a short dress or long top) and compression sleeves (great for runners). No matter what you’re looking for, you can find lots of options on the Vim&Vigr website. OR….
Guess what? You can win two pairs of compression socks from Vim&Vigr!

HI Beth, I’ve subscribed to your newsletter and will post on FB. My next trip is to Italy in September to hang out in Siena then Hike the Julian Alps in Slovenia and then hike the long distance walk from Bolgna to Florence. Could sure get great mileage out of a pair of compression socks!

Hopefully some exploring in the Pacific Northwest this summer.?? I’ve followed you for years! 1,2 & 3 done.
Subscribed. I’m not ready for an international trip yet, but my legs ache even on a short flight nowadays
Love the idea of these socks. I have another brand that I wear whenI fly but Vim&Vigr socks looks way more vibrant and fun.
I am a subscriber and I sent an email. I don’t have Instagram or Facebook. Thanks!
I did all of those things! I am a long-time subscriber, I follow you on BOTH Instagram accounts (as hybroanglid), and I sent you a note to tell you where my next adventure lies. Thanks so much! 🙂

I’ll wear my compression socks on long car trips to music festivals. I’ve also worn them to bed after a long day of walking and dancing! I’m 71 years old.
Have done all the above 🙂 I’m a subscriber to the newsletter for a long time.

Another fan who follows you on all your accounts! (But not in a stalker-ish kind of way.) ?????
Headed to Portugal for a month in the fall, and my hubby stole my last pair of compression socks, so a win in this contest would be much appreciated. Cheers!
I’ve followed you for years. I don’t do instagram. No firm travel plans at this time.

Oh yes, I love getting your emails and following you on Instagram (both accounts). We’re headed to Scandinavia to see family and then to Prague and Croatia in Sept. These socks would be be so helpful! I love reading your gear tips. Thanks!
