Everyday Plus-Size Hosiery, Tights & Stockings
[Editor's Picks Continued Below]

Plus-size hosiery has become more important in recent years as trends have moved towards colorful and patterned tights, in addition to classic sheer pantyhose appropriate for work or special occasions.  Some comes with built-in shapewear which is also popular with many who like a body smoothing look under figure conscious skirts and dresses.

Sheer, neutral hose has resurged in popularity in recent years.  Bare legs have become less acceptable as work places are swinging back to more formal business attire requirements in many industries and parts of the country.  The influence of the Duchess of Cambridge is also driving this trend after it was noted that even in casual, hot Los Angeles she was wearing stockings during her official visit.

Sizes larger than a standard Queen Size are hard-to-find off-line, but are reasonably common at most plus-specialty e-commerce stops.  Wide or plus-calf trouser knee highs are another specialty item more easily found on-line.  BoHo and trendy looks will sometimes layer either footless tights or leggings under skirts and dresses.  In the winter months, all style tribes layer tights and socks under stylish boots.

Meanwhile, more practical specialty hosiery engineered specifically for the needs of diabetics and those with leg circulatory issues is also more readily available on-line at good prices.

Internet Shopping Resources for Plus-Size Tights, Hosiery, and Socks

For classic basics, available in multi-packs Just My Size is the best resource for plus-size women up to size 6X.  There you will find day sheers in a variety of tones both with and without re-inforced toes, control top styles, and colored tights. Wide-calf knee highs are also available for order.  Spanx is the control top hose favored by many celebrities and models. Higher end hosiery labels such as Wolford, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, and Falke are available from Bare Necessities.

Those shopping for patterned and colored tights will often have good luck at the plus-specialty retailers, in season, including Lane Bryant, Torrid, and Avenue.  For extra quirky and trendy patterns Asos and ModCloth are the places to shop for sizes up to 3X.  Solid colored, tie dyed, and striped tights are a specialty at We Love Colors where most styles are available in about 50 different colors in size S - XXXL. They carry both footed and footless styles.

Fishnet and thigh high stockings are most readily available from internet lingerie shops.  Hips and Curves has one of the classiest collections with sizes frequently available as large as 6X. 

Wool socks for hiking and as winter boot liners, in addition to specialty sports socks are available in an especially diverse assortment of patterns and styles at Sierra Trading Post. Diabetic socks in extra soft cotton and moisture wicking fabrics and athletic socks are available from internet sock super store Amazing Socks.  Medical grade and circulation compression knee highs in full calves are available at Footsmart.
