More on tights -- sizing

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

The biggest problem encountered with getting proper tights, is the sizing, as such is not the same with each brand. So ik yu have a XL of brand A, you might need een xxxl for the same result of another brand. E.g. The XL of Kunert is like a L of Wolford.
With leggings, footless tights, such is less of a problem as you can compensate with socks.

Dottie, thanks so much for the Big Bloomers recommendation. No worries that they won't carry my size -- in most of their styles I take the smallest they offer!
Ralph!
