OUTSIZE stockings are made for larger or stout legs. The foot is extra wide. The leg is wider from the ankle all the way up to the upper thigh and of course the welt is also wider (usually 1 1/2-2" wider)
The stocking is much wider in width to better fit the ‘larger proportioned leg. It is what would be considered a ‘Queen Sized or plus size vintage stocking.
They work great for someone that has a wider leg or needs more length.
Full Fashioned walking sheer. 8% cotton added to the sole for comfort. 100% Nylon boot
Stockings are irregulars and may have a minor imperfection that will not affect the wearing.
Stockings feature a beautiful Cuban heel, reinforced foot and of course the keyhole welt.
Here is a GENERAL guide for choosing Vintage stocking sizes, shoe/foot size is for Women's USA shoes:
8.5 = shoe size 5-6
9 = shoe size 6.5-7
9.5 = shoe size 7-7.5
10 = shoe size 8-8.5-9
10.5 = shoe size 9-9.5-10
11 = shoe size 10.5-11
11.5 = shoe size 11.5-12
12 = shoe size 13-14
To measure for length:
Take a tape measure and run it up your leg to the point on your inner thigh where you want your garter to attach to your stocking.... whatever that length is, add 2 to 3 inches to it, because that much of the length will be taken up (or lost) in circumference If you need help with your measurements please send us a message.
We do our best to disclose all imperfections but if we make a mistake please let us know, we will do everything possible to correct the error and make the sale a positive experience for you.
