The Top 10 Best Cute Compression Socks for Nurses


I can still remember the exact moment, as a nursing student, when my instructors first mentioned that we should all wear compression socks during our clinicals. I wasn’t buying it – and neither were most of the other students. Until Whitney, one of the other nursing students, went on and on about how much she loved her pair. Back then, however, there weren’t many cute compression socks for nurses. I’m so glad things have changed since then!

Because now there’s a lot of awesome compression stockings for nurses, doctors, techs, and even the pharmacists are wearing them.

The only downside to there being a lot of cute compression stockings for nurses to choose from? It’s that there’s a lot to choose from. And that can be a tad overwhelming… but to help others who don’t buy new compression socks for fun, here’s my top 10 best cute compression socks for nurses.

My Top 10 Best Cute Compression Socks for Nurses – and Anyone Else on their Feet All Day

Okay, so I admit that I’m biased and that my socks are my favorites. But I’ve got lots of other pairs that I adore – and they’re from different brands. So I wanted you to see some of the other sock brands that I enjoy wearing. There’s no real rhyme or reason to the order in this top 10, other than my socks are my favorites and I’ve divided the socks into two groups, based on their compression ratings.

For our first several pairs of socks, we’re gonna be in the 15-20 mmHg compression range.

These socks and stockings are still tight and full of support. They just aren’t as tight or supportive as those in the 20-30 mmHg compression category.

#10 Sockwell’s Graduated Compression Socks (Sizes: S/M or M/L; color: Mineral) – $24.99

#9 Sockwell’s Incline Graduated Compression (Sizes: S/M or M/L, color: Light Grey) – $24.99

#8 Sockwell’s Circulator Graduated Compression Socks (Size: S/M or M/L, color: Sherbet) – $24.95

#7 Nabee Socks (Sizes: S, M, L, XL, colors and styles vary) – $29.99

In other words, Sockwell makes a solid sock. They’re awesome. So if my Cute Compression Socks are too tight for your cup of tea, try Sockwell. Nabee socks are also beautiful socks. I haven’t had a chance to try them, but they landed in the top 10 because they’re still on my “gotta try those” list. And these ones aren’t an affiliate link.

Ready for the best 20-30 mmHg compression socks?

#6 Camo Print Running Socks (Sizes: S thru XXL; colors vary) – usually $44.99 but on sale for $22.99

Okay, so I don’t have all of the colors or sizes on these socks, but they’ve got a great variety in sizes and colors, so they make the list.

#5 A-Swift Compression Socks (Sizes: S thru XL; color: Ocean Hearts) – $11.99

That price is pretty darn hard to beat, y’all. And some are less – I’ve seen as low as $9.99!

#4 Compression Z Argyle Pink (Sizes: S thru XL with other colors) – usually $39.99 but on sale for $17.98

#3 Compression Z Funky Hearts (Sizes: S thru XL with other patterns) – usually $39.99 but on sale for $17.98

I’ve got several pairs of Compression Z socks and they’re good socks. The only oddity to them is that, at the end of the day, you’ve got some patterns imprinted on your skin for a bit.

#2 CEP Women’s Progressive 2.0 Black & Pink socks (sizes 2, 3, and 4 with many sporty color options) – from $43.65 to $60

Okay, so CEP socks are many wonderful things. Unfortunately, budget-friendly isn’t one of them. Then again, they last. Of the many pairs of compression socks, they’ve been #2 for durability… only my own compression socks have outlasted them.

And so that brings us to the #1 best cute compression socks for nurses.

#1 Cute Compression Socks 20-30 mmHg – in stripes: pink/gray or blue/gray (one size fits most) – $24.99

(Okay, so why on earth am I linking to my own socks – but on Amazon?? Well, because they’re there – and so you can check out the reviews if that’s your thing. Obviously, if you’re gonna buy socks, save yourself a few clicks and buy socks directly from my shop.)
