Ensure Smoother And Shapelier Legs By Choosing Well-Fitting Hosiery That Addresses Your Comfort And Fashion Needs.

The Size Of Your Hosiery Largely Depends On The Specifications Listed On The Product Package. Some Items May Use Your Foot Size, Hip Measurements, Height, Weight, Dress Size, Or A Combination Of These Numbers In Determining The Right Fit. We Strongly Recommend Having These Sizes And Measurements On Hand When Buying Hosiery And Having Someone Else Assist You And Take Down Your Measurements, For More Accurate Results.

Determining Your Weight
Stand On A Weighing Scale Without Jewelry Or Heavy Clothing On To Get An Accurate Reading. Have Someone Else Record The Result.

Measuring Your Height
Stand Straight With Your Back Against The Wall. Ask Your Companion To Place A Ruler On Top Of Your Head And Mark The Spot Where Your Head Meets The Wall. Using A Ruler, Measure The Distance Between The Floor And The Mark In Inches.
