Ask any hosiery wearer and they’ll tell you that there’s nothing worse than tights or stockings that pinch and dig in, cutting off your circulation. If this is something you often experience, large size hosiery could be the solution to your problem.

If you’re curvy or suffer from swollen legs, it stands to reason that you’re going to need more room in your hosiery. We recommend trying extra roomy hosiery as it’s made with more material in the foot and leg part so it can accommodate curvier legs in comfort.

If you’re looking for the ultimate in hosiery comfort, we’d also recommend stockings and knee-highs with a soft, comfort top such as the ones found in Cosyfeet’s Softhold® range. These have been designed to stay up gently and securely without restricting circulation or leaving unsightly marks.

With the national average now a size 16, it’s no wonder that sales of large size hosiery are on the rise. It’s great to see that the hosiery industry are finally embracing this change and making tights and stockings for the fuller figure that no longer dig in at the waist and thighs.
