What's my size?

Please refer to this sizing guide to choose your best fit:

When you’re tall with long legs or have larger calves, finding compression socks that fit can be challenging. Socks that are too short or small wear out faster, fall down, or squeeze your leg too tightly. Because of this, finding the right compression socks as a big or tall person may be difficult.

Nurse Yard’s compression socks for big and tall individuals are designed to accommodate many heights and sizes. Larger sizes are both wider in the calf and taller to ensure you’re covered from toes to knees. Additionally, our wave-knit fabric is soft against the skin but sturdy enough to retain its elasticity for a long time. 

Do you have trouble finding tall compression socks that accommodate your needs? Look no further than Nurse Yard. With a collection of sizes from S/M to XXXL, we’re sure to have what you need—browse and shop our styles today to find your perfect pair.

How Are Nurse Yard’s Compression Socks for Big and Tall Different?

Many compression socks offer one grade of compression and come in limited sizes or even just one size. At Nurse Yard, we resolved these issues by creating compression socks that offer a total comfort system, running in a wide range of sizes and styles. 

As a result, our socks feature:

  • A soft, knitted, no-slip cuff
  • Three levels of graduated compression
  • Cushioning around the ankle
  • Arch support
  • Soft, breathable fabric in the foot

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do Compression Socks Help People Who Are Big and Tall?

Individuals who are very tall or have a larger body size naturally bear more weight on their legs than those of smaller stature, which means they may experience sore muscles and joints more often. 

Compression socks for big and tall people can help alleviate this discomfort by supporting the joints, muscles, and connective tissues in the lower leg. The compression socks that are best for big and tall are also the best compression socks for large calves as most people who are big and tall have larger legs.

The graduated pressure from the socks reduces the shock of impact from a person’s steps, improves circulation, and helps reduce joint pressure. These features help keep big and tall individuals more comfortable as they enjoy daily activities or while they’re on the go at work.

What Is Nurse Yard’s Design for Compression Socks?

At Nurse Yard, our compression socks offer more than just pressure—they offer sturdy, breathable, all-day comfort

Our specialized compression sock design starts with wave-knit fabric that supports your muscles and connective tissues with graduated compression. A cushioned ankle protects your joints, while arch supports alleviate strain on the foot. 

The best part may be our no-slip knitted cuff that keeps your compression socks where they belong. No more twisting and bending, just consistent all-day support. 

How Do I Know What Size Compression Sock to Get?

Compression sock sizing is especially important for someone with broad calves or long legs—if they’re too small, they may squeeze your leg too tightly or require constant adjusting. Fortunately, finding your size if you’re big and tall is simple with Nurse Yard.

Start by wrapping a flexible measuring tape around the widest part of your calf. Then, compare the resulting number and your shoe size to our straightforward sizing chart to find your perfect fit. For instance, if you wear a size 9 women’s shoe with a 13-inch calf circumference, our women’s XXL is the best size for you. 

Our sizing chart is flexible, so there’s a chance your measurements will put you between sizes. If you prefer your socks that hug your feet, go with the smaller size. If you like more wiggle room in the toes, the larger size will be better. 

Does Nurse Yard Have Different Colors & Sizes Of Compression Socks?

Yes—we offer S/M to XXXL in men’s and women’s sizes, and our compression socks come in many styles and colors to accommodate your unique aesthetic.   

Our most popular designs belong to our CORE series, which includes the following styles:  

  • Black: black with gray design
  • White: white and gray with light gray toe and heel
  • Blue: blue and gray with white toe and heel
  • Green: green with gray design

  • Pink: pink and gray with white toe and heel

Those who work in medicine or science may be interested in our HERO series, which includes:

  • Scrub Life: white with blue details and teal scrubs print
  • DNA: yellow with multicolored DNA strand print
  • Ambulance: teal with white ambulance print, orange toe, and heel

You can order each style in every size.

How Tight Are Compression Socks for Big and Tall?

Our compression socks for big and tall people offer a continuum of graduated pressure to alleviate pain and inflammation associated with conditions like plantar fasciitis, shin splints, muscle fatigue, and more. 

Compression is tightest around the ankle at 30mmHg of pressure, loosening slightly to 25mmHg of medium pressure around the calf muscle. The no-slip knitted cuff offers 20mmHg of light pressure just below the knee, ensuring you’ll never have to adjust them.

Does the job

I was pleasantly surprised that they were comfortable first wear and they are comfortable for a full 8 hour shift, though I found them a bit uncomfortable in the seams around the toe box if I work a 12 hour shift. I would love it if they made a full thigh high length in the same weave. Will be purchasing more to have a good rotation of stock. Will

Hi Lisa,

It's great to hear that the Nurse Yard compression socks provided comfort during your 8-hour shifts! However, I understand that you found the toe box seams uncomfortable during longer shifts. Your feedback about wanting a full thigh-high length version of the same weave is valuable, and I'll pass it along. Having a good rotation of stock sounds like a wise plan to ensure you always have comfortable socks on hand.

Work really well

I've recently started walking 3 miles a day, 5x a week and these socks have been wonderful at helping my legs. I was getting horrible cramps in my calves that ointments like tiger balm wasn't helping with relief. I wear these after walking and it helps with recovery without feeling like the circulation is cutting off blood flow. I'm so glad I bought 2 pairs!
