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 compression socks that accommodate your needs? Look no further than Nurse Yard. With sizes from S/M to XXXL, we’re sure to have what you need—browse our styles today.

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 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?

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.

FORMER thigh hi compression stocking girl because all knee highs dug into my knees and feet. Well …. Let me tell you something. These compression socks are absolutely amazing !! I bought 2 pair to try them out and after two days, I purchased four more pairs !! One of each color for each day of work so that the wear and care is equal. And I think what I love the most is that not only my legs but my feet …. Yes my FEET are no longer throbbing at the end of the day !!!! Enough said !! They are the bomb !!
Wasn't sure at first about buying them. Took me a few times looking and then I said what the heck and got 2 pair. I have to say they do what they claim to do no doubt on that. My legs feel very energetic, do not hurt what so ever. Very supportive in the arch and the circulation throughout the day is consistent. They are light weight and i have forgotten I had them on even after 12+ hrs. I have another brand and they do not do what these do. My ankles were always swollen and my legs always hurt and it always felt like it was cutting into my legs at the top. These do not do that at all. I am impressed all the way around and will be ordering more in the coming weeks. I work in the ER so it's constant moving. All I can say is try em out. Either you'll like them or you won't.
I really like these socks. I had an issue with one pair, though. However, when I contacted customer service, I received immediate help and the issue was resolved on the spot! I will be a life-long customer I'm sure.
I was a skeptic and figured these socks would be like every compression sock I've bought. I was wrong! Usually after a 12 hour shift in my compression socks, my feet feel tired and feel like they want to burst out of my shoes. There is almost always swelling when I finally take off my shoes. I decided to give the nurse yard compression socks a try because I had nothing to lose at that point. I noticed an instant difference. End of shift my feet felt like I hadn't even walked on them. My feet and legs weren't tired and there was no swelling. Best decision I've made. I plan to buy more and would definitely recommend.
Not a nurse, I'm a cashier. Best purchase I've ever made, literally has saved my life ❤️
I purchased these for my husband he experiences swollen feet and poor circulation. He is also often on his feet. He comes home daily with achy feet. First day he wore the Nurse Yard socks he said , "my feet feel so much better". We have since purchased socks for our family members and we ourselves own about 10 pair. We love them!!!!
Omg the sock a wonderful. I work in dialysis 15-16 hours shifts. No more tired feet achy legs. Go home shower and rest with out having to rub my legs and feet. Definitely worth a try.
My legs and feet aren't sore anymore after a shift. I only bought 2 pair but I'm definitely planning another order soon! I have to admit I wasn't totally sold but after my first day I told everyone I work with! Now a few weeks later they are still awesome!
