Most of the styles we offer are labeled “one size fits most”, as this is often the only option available to us from our suppliers.
Each style is listed with the label’s sizing, supplemented by our own experience in testing the socks, if we find that extra information to be useful or different from the label. We encourage you to drop us a line with your measurements if you’re having trouble figuring out what will work best for you. Check out this Sock Journal post for tips on which measurements we need!
Sock sizing is an odd thing, and after all these years, we still don’t have it fully figured out… When a label says “size 9-11”, it doesn’t necessarily mean shoe size. This range is typically intended to fit US women’s shoe sizes 4-11 or something close to that, but we all know that isn’t always true! Then there’s the labeling that covers your height and weight, but everybody’s weight is distributed differently, so this is not much help either. Unfortunately, we have found it very difficult to find socks or stockings that stretch over 23 inches, even when custom made (although many of our Dreamer Socks will now fit beyond that!). Cotton is easiest to stretch and can be further loosened by wetting the fabric and pulling the tops occasionally as they dry.
Kids Sizes: This is a newer area for us, and there is limited information about whom these smaller socks are meant to fit. Feel free to give us your feedback based on personal experience or working knowledge, and we’ll continue to upgrade this growing section!
Smaller Feet: Feet smaller than about a women’s size 7 can find the average sock to be too loose, but they often fit into kids sizes. We’ve had many of our house brand DreaM Stockings made in smaller versions to fit the petite-footed among us. (We also have options for Larger Feet, as well as a category for Tube-Style socks that will fit any size foot!)
Men’s Sizes: A size larger than the standard women’s range, these are usually labeled for men’s shoe size 10-13 and often fit men’s U.S. shoe sizes 8-12 best. (When converting women’s sizes to men’s, just subtract two, e.g. women’s 11 = men’s 9).
Plus Size: This is generally a larger version of the industry standard “one size”. Keep in mind that every person is shaped differently, and that will affect your results with fit more than any weight limit. Our best advice is to try things out, measure your legs, read the sizing tips on the product, and keep your expectations as realistic as possible. We strive to provide accurate sizing information for each and every style listed on our website– just scroll down to the “Sizing Tips” section of any product page to see information from our own in-house tests.
If you need to convert shoe sizes, we have a post in the Sock Journal all about Sock Math! And as always, if you have questions about a specific style, please feel free to contact us, and we’ll do our best to answer based on our own personal experience and the feedback we’ve received from other customers.
More like a pant than a legging, these sleek, opaque footless tights come in three sizes to hug all kinds of curves. We found these to be super comfy and nicely opaque. Made in the USA.
92% cotton, 8% spandex
Machine wash cold, gentle cycle. Reshape, lie flat to dry.
The black is indeed a true black, images appear lighter merely to show more detail. Other shade variations between images of the same color are due to differing lighting.
Cuff stretches to about 15 inches for all sizes.
Small: Label says they fit 5'0 to 5'4" or 100 to 120 lbs. We found they stretched to 36 inches in the waistband, 23 inches in the thigh and 13 inches at the ankle.
Medium: Label says they fit 5'2" to 5'6" or 120 to 135 lbs. Our testers found they stretched to 44 inches in the waistband, 24 inches at the thigh and 14 inches at the ankle.
Large: Label says they fit 5'6" to 5'10" or 135 to 175 lbs. We found they stretched to 57 inches in the waistband and 32 inches in the thigh, with 15 inches stretch in the ankle.
These are a lower-rise style with an enclosed elastic waistband. Single seam at front and rear, with a seam inside the leg. Folks with more of a bottom found that the back of the leggings creeps down a bit, but not too terribly. See extra image of Charcoal in Small.
