Find Out Which Size of Tights Are Right for You

Simplified Sizing

While the above sizing chart is ideal if you are looking for a pair of tights that fit you exactly, the sizing can be difficult to take and match to the sizing chart. With our simplified sizing, you only need to take three measurements:

  • The circumference of the thigh (towards the top of your leg)
  • The circumference of the kneecap
  • The circumference of the ankle

Once you have these measurements, please match your results to the table below. If you fall between a couple of different sizes, we would recommend choosing the size for which you match the most measurements.
