[Shopping Information & 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 formalwear and figure conscious skirts and dresses.  Along with items such as winter accessories, jewelry, and trendy leggings, socks and tights are also popular stocking stuffers during the Christmas holiday gift giving season.

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.
