How should I select my size?
Sizing for compression is all about knowing your calf circumference. Carefully measure your calf - at its' widest part - using a fabric measuring tape. Lily Trotters can really stretch, so to ensure your calf feels the 15-20 mmHg hug accurately, select the size that matches your calf circumference.
Many people can wear both sizes comfortably. The majority of our product testers found the S/M to be the right size. Our socks do stretch everywhere, so keep that in mind. If you are on the taller side, you may prefer the length of our L/XL.
If I have a medical condition, should I wear compression socks?
Everyone should consult a physician before wearing compression socks — especially if you have a medical condition.
Why isn't the sock’s entire foot bed fully cushioned or reinforced?
From heel to toe, Lily Trotters are designed to be marathon strong. Our heels are cushioned to help absorb impact during strenuous and repetitive activity, such as running. Our reinforced toes are built to help keep toes from popping through the socks (just keep those toenails clipped!).
Will Lily Trotters make socks with compression stronger than 15-20 mmHg?
For the foreseeable future, Lily Trotters will be focusing solely upon manufacturing 15-20 mmHg high-performance compression socks.
Will Lily Trotters be making socks for plus-sized women?
We plan to add more size options to our sock line as we grow, and hope to include plus-size options at that time.
Do you make a men's line?
Not at the moment, but we are seriously thinking about launching a men's line. When we do, we will be sure to announce it loudly. Until then, Lily Trotters are equal opportunity socks. Some of our best customers are men who regularly wear Lily Trotters when they play sports, fly, or need a trouser sock with their work clothes. We call them our “Secret Society of Men Who Wear Lily Trotters.” Their identities are safe with us! Just don't be surprised if you see green and pink polka dots peeking out from under a man's pants.
