10 Places to Get Plus Size Tights and Thigh Highs (Extended Sizes Too!)

Looking to layer in style? We’ve got a roundup of 10 places where you can get really cute Plus Size Tights, plus size hosiery, and Thigh Highs!


It’s cold. For me, me and the cold do NOT mix well! Seriously! I had been asked before, about where to get tights, and thought to share with you some of my haunts and places that offer great selections, styles, and sizes!

I mean, tights are no longer boring, dull, and stale. There are fancy styles and prints, thigh highs that are cheeky and playful, and so much more! Now, know there are more than five places, but I wanted to give you a great place to start!

You ready? Here we go:

10 Places to Get Plus Size Tights and Thigh Highs

SPANX (Up To Size F/G)

When it comes to plus-size shapewear you already know that the SPANX brand has you covered, and that translates to tights as well! You may not be able to find the bright colors and funky prints here, but you definitely know that they will be durable and fit like a glove.

We Love Colors (Up To 6X/7X)

With over 80 hues to play with, We Love Colors offers fishnets, tights, patterned colors, and a rainbow of hues to accentuate your looks!

Just My Size (Up To Size 3X/4X)

The name pretty much says it all! Just My Size has a nice collection of tights that are ideal for work, a night out on the town or when you just really wanna give your trusty leggings a bit of a break while still keeping your legs warm.

10 Places to Get Plus Size Tights Avenue (Up To 7X)

This has to be one of the most diverse range of options that I have seen, especially in sizing. While One Stop Plus may use their feed, there are quite a lot to choose from here!

 Torrid (Up To 6X)

For all you modern fashionistas out there who love to express your personality through your tights, Torrid is the place for you! With an incredibly diverse print/pattern selection and extended sizing, you find a host of tights to suit every mood.

Target (Up To 3X)

I have a nice array of patterned tights, a few in various hues, and they rock out for me! In stores you will find some great choices up to a 3x and Merona has a few too online!

ASOS (Up To 3X)

From the popular ASOS Curve line, the tights here sell out pretty quickly, so if you see a particular style you like, add to your shopping cart fast! The sizing is also pretty standard for plus hosiery and if you’re lucky, you’ll find some pops of color too.

One Stop Plus (Up To 8X)

One of the largest online malls pulling from brands across the globe, One Stop Plus offers so many options from Torrid, Avenue, and their own house brand, Comfort Choice!

Lane Bryant (Up To Size F/G)

Embellished, open-weave, diagonal and hues perfect for this winter season, Lane Bryant offers you a range of fashion forward and classic choices to pair with your fabulous winter wardrobe!

HerRoom (Varies)

One of the best places online to shop plus size intimates and hosiery from various brands (Hanes, Hue, DKNY, etc.) and extended sizing. There are also quite a few regular sales that happen at HerRoom, so feel free to stock up on as many tights as you like!


 What kind of tights do you rock? Have you shopped all or any of these? If I have missed some of your favorite haunts, leave where you go in the comments!

Sound off, I want to know! XOXOXO

    These are simply THE BEST, because they’re mostly cotton, and come in decent sizes – nylon is so horrible! These last a very, very long time, and are the most comfortable tights I have ever worn. I’ve been buying these since the late 80s, and have never been disappointed.

    I’m having a really difficult time finding opaque tights for my weight AND height. I ordered two pairs from WeLoveColors and both were too small (I bought the largest size, which is meant for someone 50lb larger than me and they still wouldn’t go up past my thighs) so now I’m stuck.
    I need white opaque tights for my wedding in March. I’m around 315lb, 5’10, and I have a pear shape. I’ve check every site mentioned on this page so far, as well as Lane Bryant, Torrid, ModCloth, and more.
    I’m at a loss.

    Sonsee: (Up to 9x)

    Big Bllomers: (Up to 8x)

    I’m 5’11 and about a size 22 on the bottom, my issue over and over with tights or panty hose is that they sneak down and I end up with penguin crotch!! I hate this but want to wear more opaque tights. Does anyone have a brand they recommend for a taller plus girl that’s crotch stays put??

    I’m desperately trying to find some cute snuggly THIGH high socks! I’m not a fan of the ‘Over The Knee’ fit on myself and I can’t seem to find a place that sells the high socks I want! I have 33″ thighs and I really want some comfy socks that will stay up and also not cut my circulation off in the process!
