What's my size?
Pregnancy can be a magical and life-changing experience, but it can also be an uncomfortable one. That’s why Nurse Yard’s compression socks for pregnancy are here to relieve one of the most prominent pains women experience; foot and ankle soreness.
With the help of Nurse Yard’s pregnancy compression socks, you’ll be able to spend more time enjoying your pregnancy and preparing for the bundle of joy you’re about to bring into the world.
Our pregnancy compression socks provide relief, and it’s all thanks to these features:
- Graduated compression from calf to foot
- Arch support to prevent muscle strain
- A no-slip liner so you don’t have to pull them back up all the time
And to sweeten things even further, our compression socks come with a 60-day guarantee. Try our pregnancy socks for nearly two months, and if you don’t like them, send them back for a full refund.
What Trimester Should You Wear Compression Socks?
Though compression socks can help alleviate discomfort and reduce swelling throughout your pregnancy, doctors recommend wearing them daily during your second and third trimesters. Most pregnancies begin to show in the transition from the first to second trimester, which means your baby is growing—and putting extra pressure on your legs.
Pregnancy also stimulates the body to produce extra fluids to support fetal development, increasing the chances of swelling and spider veins in your legs. Wearing compression socks helps redistribute these fluids, relieves pressure on your joints, and supports your muscles and ligaments for a more comfortable pregnancy.
How Are Nurse Yard Pregnancy Socks Different?
At Nurse Yard, our pregnancy socks are made with your needs in mind. Where many other compression socks only provide support for an hour or two, Nurse Yard’s graduated compression and cushioning can offer all-day comfort. You can even sleep in our compression socks. And with our wave design knit pattern, you won’t have to worry about our socks being too tight or loose like other compression socks.
Risk Free 60 Day Guarantee
We proudly stand behind our product, which is why we offer a lengthy guarantee.
If for any reason you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, return it within 60 days of your purchase for a full refund.
20-30 mmHg of graduated pressure. The perfect balance of compression... Not too tight, yet not loose! The ideal amount of support.
Fabric & Care
Our socks are made of 80% Nylon + 20% Spandex. Recommended to air dry to prevent shrinkage and for a longer lasting sock. Wash cold. No fabric softener.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Do Compression Socks Help With Pregnancy?
Pregnancy comes with various physical changes, including natural weight gain and swelling in multiple parts of the body. Swelling around the legs and feet is completely normal during pregnancy, but it can cause persistent discomfort and make it difficult to walk around for extended periods of time.
The best compression socks for pregnancy help alleviate this swelling and discomfort by stimulating healthy blood flow throughout your legs and feet. The additional arch support and cushioning of Nurse Yard’s graduated compression socks work to relieve acute and chronic leg pain, providing comprehensive support for sore legs and feet during pregnancy.
What is the Design Hack of Nurse Yard’s Compression Socks?
So, how do we do it? Nurse Yard’s design philosophy is all about creating total comfort from toe to calf. We balance this comfort with utility to deliver a compression sock that really does it all. To ensure we provide this combination of comfort and utility with every pair of compression socks, we’ve included the following features:
- Roomy toes to prevent chafing
- Comfortable, supportive arches
- Cushioned ankles for all-day comfort
- Wave-shaped knit for graduated compression
- No-slip cuffs to keep your socks in place
How Do I Figure Out My Compression Sock Size?
To figure out your compression sock size, use your current shoe size and calf measurement as a reference. For example, if you usually wear a women’s size 7 shoe and the widest part of your calf measures 12 inches, our women’s S/M or L/XL will fit you best.
To measure your calf, wrap a flexible measuring tape around the widest part of the muscle. For the most accurate measurement, the tape measure should touch the skin without making an indent.
If you’re between sizes, please note our larger sizes have more room in the foot. So if you prefer more room for your toes or a more form-fitting sock, select your size accordingly.
What Colors & Sizes of Compression Socks Does Nurse Yard Offer?
Our socks aren’t just comfortable; they’re stylish too. We offer pregnancy compression socks in the following colors:

This is honestly my favorite pair of Nurse Yard socks yet. I ordered the 3x and they're perfect for my thick calves.

I'm not a nurse, but I work in acute rehab and am on my feet the entire workday. I've tried other compression socks in the past and they were all torture, too tight around my calves and toes, so I never wore them much. These socks are amazingly comfortable and fit exactly as described with their sizing chart being spot on. I own at least a dozen pairs, including the Core, Core 2.0, and Hero Collection, and they all fit great. They're very durable, but I can't resist the new designs and colors!
Hey Lisa, It's wonderful that you've found compression socks that work perfectly for your demanding job in acute rehab. Your positive experience with their comfort and accurate sizing is great to hear. Having a collection of various styles that all fit well and are durable shows their effectiveness. Your preference for new designs and colors reflects their appeal. Here's to more comfortable and productive workdays ahead!
