Rated 3 out of 5Â by PlusSizeQueen These need to be sold in stores.
It is not fair that the only way I can get them is slightly imperfect. If it wasn't for putting some of the stockings on and immediately getting runs or holes or them falling apart, I would rank them 5 stars.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by KMinUS Rolls like a garden-hose. Not for the plus-sized.
I ordered this in size 5x, in 2 separate colors, figuring there might be small variations based on manufacturing between the two colors. It ended up getting sent back after trying on.
There was no variation between the colors.
The 5x fit correctly on my thighs, although since I'm short (5'3) they ended up fitting high up on my thighs - this made garters very problematic.
The weave of the hose _seemed_ good, never got to wear long enough to test though.
Silicon backing on the lacy upper thigh seemed strong, like it wouldn't wear out.
1. JustMySize doesn't carry garter belts/garters in large sizes, which would be incredibly useful addendum for thigh high stockings - a just in case contingency you could wear even for stockings meant to stay up on their own. And plus sized women need them even more than regular sized women.
2. Not Petite! These stockings in larger sizes are meant for tall woman. They are not for the petite or those on the cusp of petite! If you're short and you can't get them high enough, you will end up with baggy hose.
3. The silicon didn't grip my thighs or stay up. Within 2 steps it rolled all over the place. I tried garter help,they rolled anywhere a garter tie wasn't! I'd need a garter tie every 1/2 inch or so around to fix it, and how would I garter tie it between my thighs? When you're fat, you want to AVOID rubbing between the thighs or else you end up with serious abrasion issues, possibly infection - with rolling, it was awful! It was like trying to walk around with garden hoses wrapped around each thigh. It felt bad, it looked bad under clothes, and because of the way it rolled, it bound my thighs just like a tightly tied rope, which was going to cause circulation problems, pain, and fluid retention in my lower legs and feet. There was no binding effect until it rolled. This WAS the correct fit ladies. It's just that the silicon was so thick it wanted to stick to itself and the hosiery fabric, not skin, and would not lay flat no matter what I did.
4. Lacy silicon'ed top ran about 2 inches high.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Renee Nice but do not like the color
I love these thigh highs but would prefer a jet black. The off black is almost brown. Please offer jet black. There are more uses for that color.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sassafras Love them!
I think these thigh highs are great! If you have trouble with them rolling down, order one size up, since they are a little snug. I just wish they had more colors!
