What's my size?
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.

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.

Hole in sock seam after 1 time wearing them. Not good.
I ordered 3 pair of socks and the first pair I tried got a hole in the seam after one night of wear. I messaged the company and didn’t hear back. Wouldn’t purchase from them again.
My daughter is a surgical technologist in a very busy hospital surgical department and is always complaining about being on her feet all day. When I saw the ad on TikTok I bought two pairs for her. She was very happy and asked me to buy her more. I placed an order for another 2 yesterday.
