I don’t know about you but finding plus size stockings I like, that fit me well and don’t cost the earth is something that is damn near impossible. Yet, owning a great pair of stockings or tights can be such a godsend to a girl’s winter wardrobe. Summer dresses get a winter update, short skirts stay in play for longer and everything just looks that little bit more classy with a pair of sheer stockings.

Soooo it has taken me 3 months to build this post. THREE MONTHS. Not because it’s content heavy or anything but because it took me that long to track down a variety of brands that were well reviewed online. And here they are, from affordable to special occasion, all tried and tested by women online and reviewed positively more often than not. Sure it might still be a little hit and miss, but I’m hoping it improves your odds of a hit. Happy shopping!

Where to Buy plus size stockings and tights WE LOVE COLORS

This brand first burst into my awareness when first Dani then Liv raved about the brand. They were one of the first places to not only sell plus size stockings, leggings or tights but they did it in every colour under the sun, some with patterns, fishnets..! EVERYTHING. A wide, WIDE range of everything hosiery this is a one-stop shop for all things tights and stockings and best of all, quality has been reviewed as REALLY good. Durable and without a lot of that bagginess some tights are prone to. Well worth a look!

Where to Buy plus size stockings and tights city chic

The Aussie Curves ladies are RAVING about the new stockings range at City Chic so of course they HAD to be included. A great range of colours, densities and styles and all have been reported as being GREAT. Some of the ladies are saying that they are the best they’ve ever owned and that their search for plus size stockings, leggings or tights ended when they got their hands on a pair of these babies. High praise indeed! Available to order online and in store, of course. I’m picking up a pair myself tonight after speaking with everyone about them.

SHOP CITY CHIC.

In previous years, I haven’t noticed a large array of stockings, tights yes, but no stockings. This year, they are knocking our socks off {Was that A PUN!?} with a huge range of not only sheer and opaque stockings but funky suspender look and patterned ones too. Today I checked in with some of the girls and the few who had ordered them {most had no need having stocked up at City Chic, haha} loved them! Especially the taller ladies who reported good length. For my work style stockings I think I’ll be checking these out in the near future.

Featuring a range of sizes and a good product range this newly launched range is a must for those looking for high quality made plus size stockings and tights with classic lines and nice wide upper thigh and waist measurements. After checking out the site I was most excited about the fit of the waistband, I mean how many of us spend half our life in stockings dealing with a too tight or rolling down waistband!? Or WORSE, the thigh is so tight you’re doing the whole sausage think. Well, these have been specifically engineered to avoid that. WIN.

SHOP SONSEE.

And that’s everything! I’m sure there are more brands out there so make sure you let me know if you’ve had a great experience buying plus size stockings, leggings or tights. Next time I’m looking forward to sharing a post about where to buy plus size knits. Everything from dresses to jumpers and back again. After all Aussies {and fellow southern hemisphere friends}, ’tis the season! Right!?

    I have been waiting for this post! Love wearing dresses/skirts and stockings in winter but there is nothing worse then spending the whole day pulling them up trying to get comfortable!
    City Chic pattern stockings are amazing and will stay up all day but found their plain ones just don’t sit right on me. Plus I like a lighter denier (think CC ones only come in 80) for work. I have a pair on the way from ASOS but if they don’t work I now have two other places to try 🙂

    • Sorry it took me SO long. I really did want it to be as comprehensive as possible. I HATE badly fitting stockings, they really are the worst. Yuck. Thanks for the tips of the CC and ASOS ones. Noted!

        HELP! I’m 5ft 2 and size 20. Buying Xtall size ends up with the body part slowly falling and I have to hitch them up all the time. Most plus size tights seem to be labelled as Size1 or Size2. The Size1 fits well in the hip/body area and around the leg but they are soooo long that I finish up with wrinkles round the ankles. Anyone who’s shorter like me have any suggestions?

        • I’ve asked on the facebook page for you, I’ll let you know when I do! What with being almost 5″11 myself, I’m not help AT ALL. 😉

        • Right! Here’s what the ladies had to say. Good luck!

    I love We Love Colors but find their plus sizes way, way too big for me – like they come up to my armpits and sag around the ankles. Some of their regular sizes come in one size (fits all but Kathryn!) and other styles have a selection of sizes. I find the largest size in the regular sizings works best. I’m around a sz 20 but have thin legs.

    I got a pair of the Asos tights recently. they are the faux stay-ups. Love them and want some more. they are so smexy!

    • Haha. The armpit thing is THE WORST. I have a long torso and sometimes I’m wearing stockings up around there. Thanks for the tips! Hopefully it helps someone else shopping out there.

    I heard that We Love Colors is great and also Torrid.com

  • Sarah Collins

    This is awesome! The other day I went to pull on my I love colours tights and discovered that I’ve gained a lot of weight in the last year, lol, and they don’t fit over my thighs anymore! Ugh. But I’m super excited to try out Sonsee and probably city chic if they aren’t too expensive. Thank you!

    • Whoops! New tights for you. Good luck with your search, let us know how you go. 😀

    If you are looking for cheap patterned stockings try Kmart (I know right). There is a 3pack, with a hot pink cardboard box. I think they are around 10-15 dollars. They say they are one size fits all.
    I am 185 cms tall, size 11 feet and roughly 100 kilos and they are great for me. I can still pull them up to almost under my boobs and they are not tight at all on my legs or stomach – they seem to have a lot of stretch in them.

    I bought one packet last year and wore them almost every work day for all of winter and they are still being worn this winter, so they do last – and no snags so far (although that may be due to the fact that they are patterns – such as fishnets/leopard/geometric weaves).

    They are only in black, but have 3 different ‘patterns’ per pack. Usually there are 2 different packs per season.

    I really recommend these stockings and if you are around my size they are great. I cant remember who else likes them, but it was one of the Aussie plus size bloggers (maybe Nat – XL as Life).

    Hope this helps someone else who is looking for some patterned stockings.

    • This is all kinds of wonderful! Thank you for sharing. So glad you did and I’ll be popping in next time I’m there for sure. Win!

    Yeah city chic stockings are great and super comfy but as far as i know thier range extends from black to purple and berry. thats not a big enough range for me, i want more colours! Currently saving up to get a whole heap from we love colours especially nude coloured leggings which are impossible to find anywhere!

    • Haha. Give me ALL THE COLOURS. Love it! Enjoy your haul, I noticed they have a bulk ordering section, maybe try that? 😛

  • Tegan Towie

    I haven’t tried any we love color ones yet I can’t figure out what colours to get lol. I love my CC ones but find the Asos ones fall down on me which drives me nuts!

    • Tough one to answer Tegan! I think that all the time. And I love the crazy pattern ones and then I’m like, nah I shouldn’t… But I love them… Oh stuff it I’m going to bed. Haha.

      Sucks to hear that about the ASOS ones. Any feedback on fit/sizing for us?

  • Amy

    Recently I’ve discovered that buying decent stockings is difficult for any size. After a year of slogging it out at the gym hardcore, I hit a size 10. Wanted to ramp up an outfit with fishnet stockings. No problem, right? No. I had to shop for about an hour in five different stores to find fishnets suitable for a smaller size. Gah! I can’t win!

    • After hanging around with Dani for the time she was here in Brisbane, I get that. Being a little person with tiny feet, she always had problems, and there are some thing you just can’t buy in the kids section {Thank goodness! Haha}.

    Where can I purchase Queen size Fishnet pantyhose with Soles? Similar to the pantyhose that Capezio sells? I would need a size 5x and Capezio does not sell this size.
    Thanks in advance!
