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.
What makes these fishnets "professional"? They're heavy-duty, so they can stand up to lots of wear and resist snags and runs. Plus! The solid cotton-blend foot means you won't have those ouchy lines imprinted in your toes at the end of a long night on your feet.
67% nylon, 29% spandex, 2% polyester, 2% cotton
Hand wash warm, drip dry.
Yes! These are Leg Avenue's replacement for the long-gone and much loved "Showgirl Fishnets." We're so glad to see this style back and even think we like these a little more than the original.
Made in Taiwan.
Remember, fishnet is stretchy stuff and it stretches both up and down and around, so there is forgiveness in the sizing ranges. But we want you to be comfortable. We've tried to convey the sizing range to the best of our abilities, but you can always drop us a line with your measurements for more precise help!
Small/Medium: Label says these fit a range from 4'11" to 5'7" or 100 to 140 lbs. Our more petite testers found they weren't too loose on the ankles. If you've got curves and height, then you might want to go a size up as the label's top height/weight combo for this size is 5'3", 140lbs.
Medium/Large: Label says these fit a range from 5'3" to 5'11" or 130 to 177 lbs. We found they fit shorter inseams with hips up to 59 inches and thighs up to 31 inches! If you've got long, full legs then you might want to go a size up as the label's top height/weight combo for this size is 5'6", 175lbs.
Extra Long: Label says these fit a range from 5'10" to 6'2" or 145 to 170 lbs. We found they fit longer inseams with up to 50 inch hips and thighs up to 29 inches and more room to stretch in the leg!
Most of us found these didn't look like they'd fit at first and then magically stretched as we put them on. They're not high-waisted, nor low-riding, but a happy medium. The foot pad can be scooted to cover your toes or lower heel, depending on your shoes and preference. If your thighs touch you may want to wear slip shorts or bike shorts with this style, as the tougher fishnet can be uncomfortable when rubbing together. Some of us also wear them inside out, which keeps the sole seams from pressing into the skin. Using a no show or half sock. could also help.
Color notes: All three colors have a straight shot of them in their multiple images. The "Light Toast" is truly the color of lightly toasted bread and is NOT a pale shade, though we've found it does look lighter on than in the package. "Suntan" is sort of pumpkin-y, but not so much that it doesn't look fabulous on olive shades. The last image shown in the extra images for each size and color shows all three shades together.
