Committing to a life of dance can be as exhausting as it is rewarding. From rigorous rehearsals to executing your final performances, your body is subject to a lot of wear and tear, especially your legs. This means leg and ankle soreness is likely a regular part of your life.

Compression socks are an effective way to relieve achy legs, but they hardly ever work as advertised. Some are too tight, some provide inconsistent pressure, and others make it feel like you might as well be wearing plain tube socks. 

At Nurse Yard, our compression socks for dancers are a cut above.

We’ve addressed many of the issues that dancers experience when trying to find quality compression socks. Our graduated pressure design ensures consistent compression from calf to toe, our cushioning materials control blisters, and our non-slip liner keeps your socks up throughout the most intense dances.

When you’re dancing, you need to know you can rely on your legs. With the help of Nurse Yard’s compression socks, you’ll be able to maintain the poise and energy required to nail the most demanding dance routines.

How Nurse Yard’s Compression Socks for Dancers Differ

The majority of compression socks don’t actually provide the support that dancers need. Whether it’s inconsistent pressure or constant slippage, other compression socks rarely ever stick the landing. At Nurse Yard, our compression socks for dancers are designed with the total comfort and satisfaction of dancers in mind.

It all starts with our 20-30 mmHg compression, which delivers consistent pressure from foot to calf. From there, our comfortable design ensures your legs won’t feel suffocated while trying to complete a demanding performance. You may even forget you’re wearing compression socks at all.

Our socks provide pain relief like few other compression socks can. Your body and mind will feel the difference during every dance routine, allowing you to focus more on your next move and less on the discomfort in your legs.

In addition to helping dancers, our compression socks also benefit basketball players, nurses, seniors, teachers, hikers, runners, ice hockey players, flight attendants, pregnant women, hairdressers, and conditions like edema, neuropathy, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, diabetes, and shin splints.

Common Questions

How Do Compression Socks Help Dancers?

Nurse Yard’s compression socks are the secret to painless legs for dancers. With the graduated pressure of our socks, you’re able to enjoy even blood flow throughout your legs and feet. This means less soreness while you dance and less aching in the days after a performance.

What Does Nurse Yard’s Compression Sock Design Hack Do?

At Nurse Yard, our design hack for more comfortable and effective compression socks can be found in the structure and support of our socks. From the durable materials we use to make our socks to our comprehensive arch support, we prioritize quality over everything else.

As a result, you don’t have to worry about sore legs or feet that ache all day and night. Move through your day with greater comfort, and take on every dance with increased energy and confidence.

How Do I Know What Size of Compression Sock to Get?

Please refer to the sizing guide below to choose the best compression sock size for you. For the most satisfying fit, measure around your calf with a tape measure and select the size that fits your measurements.

This size chart does what it can to account for all body types. If you are displeased with how your socks fit, please reach out to Nurse Yard, and we can arrange an exchange.

Like most other clothing, your ideal compression sock sizing depends on how you prefer compression socks to fit. If you prefer more room in the foot and toe area, you may want to purchase a larger size than you would for regular socks. If you prefer a more snug fit, you may want to size down.

Does Nurse Yard Have Color & Size Options for Compression Socks?

We care about more than just comfort; we want you to look stylish in your compression socks too! We offer four sizes and six colors for our compression socks so you can find the pair that best fits your overall needs, whether you're petite or big and tall.

New customer

Your customer service is wonderful. Needed a larger size and you shipped them right away. I have the black and Grey core socks. The Grey pattern looks and feels like k tape. All the patterns provide the perfect support. Really like the band at the knee. Actually had room for the lymph to move up to the torso. Best of all worlds. Will absolutely get more. Thanks Paula

Such a relief to find this product.

Several years ago I had an infection that started in my right leg. It initially looked like a bug bite but then began to throb and have electric like shocks. After seeking medical attention and received some good and bad advice on remedying this issue it had gotten worse and after receiving a biopsy on my left leg that also become infected, I ended in up wound care at our local hospital. There I was told even when I recovered from the infection I would need to wear compression stockings for the rest of my life. Fast-forward after trying several companies I had some success but most compression socks I tried would be tight but didn't relieve the swelling at times or the pain, until I tried Nurses Yard. These have been a welcome find and I wear them all the time. My doctor is surprised as he said most people don't listen to him , I told him to recommend Nurses Yard because they really work.

Best fit ever!!

These stockings were recommended by my dental hygienist , She showed me them on her legs at the office. She couldn't say enough about haw comfortable they are. My doctor told me to get compression hose because my legs swell. I've tried many only to return them because I have a large leg and I felt like they were squeezing me too hard. Then I tried Nurse Guard which are just wonderful ! I had little bit of a hard time getting them on, but once on I didn't notice any discomfort and wore them all day.

Thank you for your positive review of our Nurse Yard CORE Compression Socks! We're so glad to hear that they are the best fit ever for you.
