    Promising review: "I have never found a pair of thigh-high socks that have actually fit my thighs until today. I’m so happy with these! Not only do they fit my thighs perfectly, but they also aren’t too warm or thick, and are stretchy and soft. If rolled down, they don’t compress your calves either. No complaints." —Leigh Broyles

    Get them from Amazon for $9.33+ (available in six colors and packs of one and two).

    2. A pair of thick and comfy plus-size striped thigh-high socks designed to stretch but stay put all day long – they even come with optional garter belts to make sure of that!

    Thunda Thighs / Etsy

    Thunda Thighs is a Canada-based Etsy shop specializing in plus-size thigh-high socks and accessories.

    Note: The shop suggests wearing in these socks for them to reach their full potential. It's not unusual for them to roll down the first wear or two due to the way they are packaged. BTW, if you're not feelin' the black, these are also available in 29 other colors and styles!

    5. A pair of knitted plus-size thigh-high socks with a fold at the top and belt straps for an extra stylish and unique touch.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My thighs are about 28 inches around and I have never found thigh highs that would comfortably fit me, let alone stay up. These fit!!! They are knitted so they have a ton of stretch and they are so, so, so warm and cozy. The belt strap is absolutely a must, as well. You can also totally achieve the leg warmer look just by literally scrunching the sock down. It looks adorable. The socks are so cute and so soft, I may have to get the white next!" —meowmeow

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "With this cold, these socks are a must. They are adorable and, most importantly, functional! They keep me warm at night, they are comfortable and soft. I put on lotion on my legs every night and put these socks on and I have noticed a difference in how soft my skin is. I will have to purchase another set since I use them almost every night." —daniella ospina

    Free People

    Promising review: "These socks ROCK! LOVE THESE WITH BOTH BOOTS AND BIRKS. They are soft, well made, and super comfortable!! They remind me of the EG SMITH socks I wore in the '80s and '90s. I have been looking for a comparable option since then. These socks sell out fast so if you’re thinking about it, just dooooo it! You will love these amazingly cozy socks, too!" —SMROCZ

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "THEY STAY! THEY REALLY STAY! Last week, I wore these to a convention. I was admittedly pessimistic about the idea of thigh highs with grips, but I REALLY wanted these to work...and they DID. It was a hot and sweaty day, I walked multiple laps through both the artists' alley and vendor hall, did two photoshoots, and even went shopping and out to eat afterward. The socks stayed. I’d say these blew my socks off, but quite the opposite." —DenniMac

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in 15 colors and packs of 1–3).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've had these socks for three years now and they're STILL HOLDING UP. And let me tell you, I’m bad when it comes to washing-care with clothes. I usually just throw anything into the washer and hope it doesn’t get damaged. And they still have 95% of the rhinestones they had on day one! I also have extremely thick thighs and I’m short. These are truly thigh-high socks." —Samantha N M.

    Get them from Amazon for $10.49+ (available in six colors and packs of one or three).

    Promising review: "I've been buying this brand exclusively for years and I've been referring plenty of peeps to these along the way. They're thin and stretchy and will go up all the way to your thighs. I'm 6'0 and they reach my thighs no problemo. They're just a tad delicate so don't be too rough with 'em!" —Luna Barker

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in four colors).

These socks are thick and long; they're very comfortable socks. Excellent for boots and short skirts or dresses. I will continue to buy these. I highly recommend these to anyone." —Kindle Customer Mrs. Prescott
