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.

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 Colours 01 - Plus Stockings and Tights

We love colours

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 range of everything hosiery this is a one-stop-shop for all things tights and stockings. Plus dance clothes! And best of all, quality has been reviewed as REALLY good. Durable and without a lot of that bagginess some tights are prone to. Worth a look! Need more convincing? They carry up to a 8XL in their range, so they have a wide range of sizes covered too.

Modcloth - Plus Stockings and Tights


The selection is sometimes limited for the plus-size customer, but Modcloth offers a selection of tights, stockings and cute as heck socks to add to your next outfit. I came across this brand when they had their Halloweend stock out, and despite the fact that it will surely be a billion degrees here by Halloween, was tempted to get one of each. Now, if only I wasn’t a size 24 woman who almost six foot tall. Haha. When I say they do plus, the sizing is limited. Small fats only, really.

Snag Tights - tights-opaque-tights-black-5

Snag Tights

We know how that woman is, right?! Meagan Kerr, fellow blogger and lover of tights. She’s wearing Snag Tights, and you can see her, and others doing just that on their website. The featured image for this post is also from the Snag tights website, so you can see they do all sorts of things from tights, stockings, anti-chafe pants, footless tights, bike pants… all the things. And the best news EVER? They stock size 4 to 36. Hats off to them and their killer range. Probably the best place to start if like me, you’re at the top end of the size scale for most other ‘plus’ brands.

ASOS Curve

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.

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!?
