How Do I Know If My Pantyhose Fits Right?

The Facts About Hosiery And Plus-Sizes

Hosiery and plus-size women have a love-hate relationship. There is nothing worse than trying to squeeze into a too-tight pair of pantyhose just to have them run once you have finally struggled into them. In the past, there were limited options for plus-size women, but the hosiery industry has come a long way since that point.

There are now several brands of hosiery geared towards plus-size women that make it easy to slide a pair of pantyhose without the assistance of the fire department. Control tops are helpful to help smooth out your curves, however, do not sacrifice comfort for style. Pantyhose should fit comfortably and allow relative ease of movement. Keep these tips in mind:

  • If you cannot squat down in them, they are not the right size!
  • If they roll down, they are not the right size!
  • If the area that fits around your crotch is down around your thighs, they are not the right size.
Do not get so hung on the number of the size you are wearing, that you are not willing to go up a size or two to get the right fit.
