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 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.

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.
Compression socks for pregnancy can help alleviate this swelling and discomfort by stimulating blood flow throughout your legs and feet. The additional arch support and cushioning of Nurse Yard’s compression socks also work to relieve acute and chronic 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:

I love these socks, but every time I try to order they are sold out
I have tried several different compression socks and returned all the others. The hero series are the best I've ever felt and I can't wait to buy more. I am a busy OR nurse on my feet most of the day and these have made a huge difference. Highly recommended.
Love the fit
I am short 5' and have very large calves. I had to order a 3X to fit my calves, and they do, however, I have to fold down the top a few inches as they are too long. I do enjoy wearing them, they do feel good, just wish I could have ordered shorter ones.
I've never worn compression socks in my whole 32 year nursing career! I've recently started with swelling to my legs throughout the day. I came across Nurse yard ad on fb and thought what the heck after reading all the positive reviews. Let me just tell you, i can't believe i've waited this long to give these a try! My legs feel so less fatigued and heavy after a shift. I will be back for more. Don't hesitate if your on the fence!
I love my socks! Would buy again. Excellent material. DNA are a tad short but still great. My legs don’t hurt after working 4 Twelves!
I wore my socks to the last KCChiefs playoff game.Stood on concert to tail gate for 4 hours and then enjoyed the game despite the bitter cold.my legs felt great and stood out to celebrate our victory for a long while … The socks were awesome….
I wear them often to work/ meetings. I am retired for the most part.
