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. Please see the Sizing Tips tab on a product's page for detailed fit information about that product.
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.
No frills here, plain black, two-inch wide elastic garter belt and rust proof clips to keep your socks up. These are the very same garters worn by hockey players and we think they are perfect for lots of activities that don't involve sticks.
Heavy woven elastic, reinforced stitching on 1 inch leg strips, non-rust, nickel-plated garter clips and Velcro®closure make these the most durable, long lasting available.
Hand wash cold, hang to dry.
Because of the Velcro® fastener you might have to be careful not to let the rough side touch soft fabric.
20-32 is worn here with MP Ribbed OTKs in Grey. 32-44 worn with the Lemonade Stockings in Brown.
The only thing to remember is that the vinyl tab with the button isn't permanently secured. We don't have spares, sadly, so make sure when you take your garter belt off for the day that the vinyl tab is secured snugly.
Small fits waists from 22 - 30 inches.
Medium fits waists from 32 - 44 inches.
Large fits waists from 44-60 inches.
4 suspender straps, length adjustable from 4.5 - 9 inches long.
The manufacturer labels for these garter belts read "JR" for the Small, "SR" for the Medium and "XL" for the Large, but they're the same sizes we've listed above.
