I have tried most of the knee hi trouser socks sold here. I have a 19" calf at the widest point and just under my knee it is 17". The size guide puts me at a 3x but wanting them not to dig in to my leg and leave 1/2" deep mark/ring around my leg. I bought the 4x-7x. I have worn T.E.D. by Kendell support socks. These are a bit lighter and look more like a normal sock. They do not rings or mark any more or less than the T.E.D. socks. These are a bit long for me but I felt I needed the 4x-7x size to not have them too tight on the top. Much to my surprise because these more evenly tight on the leg the dig is more comfortable. It is still happening but not until later in the day. They are long so to help control the clumping/sagging at the ankle I have left the heel of the sock in the instep of my shoe and extra in the toe. I might try these again in 1x-3x. Fair warning because these are support socks it takes some pull to get them on. By the end of the day (8-10 hrs) I do find myself adjusting the rings around my ankle & calf. I like the rings/marks on my legs are dangerous so I try to adjust the sock but these are not painful rings are the other non-support socks are. These might be as good as it gets.

The fabric used to make these trouser socks is very smooth and silky. They are well made. I wish I could wear them, but they are way too tight. I understand they are support hosiery and they are intended to have a snug fit, but the band at the top is so tight, it actually hurt to wear them and they cut into my skin. I wear a 1x and these are intended to fit 1x - 3x. I haven't decided yet to return them or to give them as a gift to someone with slender legs.

I'm very, very pleased with these trouser stockings! Lately I've had more swelling than usual in my legs. Not only do I have great every day support with these stockings, but when my legs were swelling so much, they still enabled me to continue doing what needed to be done. LOVE these stockings!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by MsD723 Not true to size.
I could not even try to put these on as they are not true to size as listed. I wear a 5x so decided it was best to order the 4-7x. But not even my sister could put them on and my sister is a size 1x. They would not stretch enough to put them on my foot without feeling like I was cutting off the circulation. I was very disappointed, as I have been looking for something I needed for quite some time. I thought JMS would be able to have what I needed since they are geared to plus sized women, but I guess I was wrong. I am returning them today since no one can use them.
