Today’s Ask the Addict feature comes from a Tumblr follower, who writes:

I know you’ve posted it before but my locating skills apparently suck today — best recommendations for plus sized tights? I love the ones in the Top 25 [Tights], I’m just looking for stuff that will fit! :)

Of course! While the HUE Opaque tights in the original post are available in plus sizes (fitting up to 300 pounds), there are several more stylish options available as well.

Sock Dreams has a staff tested plus-size legwear section, where everything fits at least a 1X/US 14. Sock Dreams is also really good about giving detailed stretch measurements; for example, how large a thigh, calf, or hip an item will accommodate.

We Love Colors’ plus sized tights fit up to 375 pounds and come in over 51 colors (striped, solid, or fishnet) as well as 11 varieties of tie-dye.

Foot Traffic offers a ton of printed tights, in addition to more basic  (but still colorful) opaque and wool options, that fit up to 225 pounds.

On the department store side of things, Torrid carries several nice styles.

Finally, Pamela Mann makes several styles of fashion-forward, plus size tights (mostly in patterns involving black) fitting up to a UK size 32/ US size 28.

Happy Shopping!

    I am very curious about corsets, but I don’t really know a lot about them and how they affect your body. I am a plus size woman. size 18 and i want that hour glass figure. i have very small hips. I am trying to lose weight and I would like to start waist training so that it will shape my body as I go. Will this give me the hour glass body that I desire (really pronounced hips with a small waist) ? An example of this would be jennifer hudson before she lost the massive amount of weight. Do corsets make your booty bigger?? that would be great! And are there any books that you know of that I should read, any websites, or people to contact? Thank you for your help.
