Plus Size Thigh Highs and Stockings
This is probably my favorite lingerie item to discuss. There is nothing sexier than a women in thigh highs or stockings. So for the life of me I do not understand why more hosiery companies do not make plus size stockings and thigh highs. Sure there are “queen size” stockings and thigh highs, but lets face it they don’t really fit. Below is what some stores feel are a proper fit.
These are not the proper way to wear them. They are just above the knee on the lower portion of the thighs. They should be called “knee highs.”
Its my opinion that stockings and thigh highs should reach to the upper portion of the thighs as shown below.
Unless you are getting 100% nylon, which will not stretch, the stocking and thigh highs are whats called “volumetric” meaning that they will stretch. The problem is the shape of the leg. If you have large calves and thicker thighs the hosiery will stretch but you may lose the length needed to reach your upper thighs.
Because all plus size woman are not shaped the same or even the same height. Someone that is 5’11” that wears a size 16-18 is different from someone that is 5’4″ and wears a 16-18.
So with Levee out of business (poor management) who will realize that there is a real need for true sizing of stockings and thigh highs?
At Sassy Curves we are partial to the brand called Nylonica. They are true plus size stockings and thigh highs.
