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.
A beautiful array of shades in these tights! With solid toes and panty and lots of little stripes in between, these are a favorite for costumes, layering, or just adding a little extra zing to your look.
Slightly different fibers for each size.
One Size are 53% nylon, 47% polyester

No matter what mix of nylon and polyester they are, hand wash, drip dry.

We compare the sizing of these tights in our Sock Journal!
One Size: We have found that these work best on hips up to 38 inches around and thighs up to 25 inches. The waistband starts out at 20 inches around and stretches comfortably up to 35 inches. Single seam in front and rear. We recommend that inseams over 31" opt for the 1x-2x (the model for the Black/Purple 1x-2x has a very long inseam and loves the fit!)
The 1x-2x and 3x-4x are only available in: Black/White, Black/Red, Black/Purple and White/Red. They have an unobtrusive double seam in the rear for more stretch.
1x/2x fits best for waist measurements 31"-35", hips 42"-46", though we've found that the waist can stretch up to 57 inches, with thigh stretch of 30 inches around. Single seam in front, double seam in rear. Longer legs may want to try the 3x-4x for more room.
3x/4x fits best for waist measurements 35"-39", hips 46"-50", though we've found that the waist can stretch to 64 inches, with a thigh stretch of up to 36 inches around, howeverlonger and fuller legs might find there is not quite enough length to go with the stretch. Double seam in front and rear.
Though they're opaque enough to hide leg hair, darker tattoos do show through lighter colors and in areas where the tights are more stretched.
