Navigating Lipedema is one of the most difficult journey’s I’ve taken on in my lifetime. Gross under-diagnosis and fat bias support the institutional barriers to treatment. I’m determined to do the impossible and I refuse to compromise self-love, self-care, and support in exchange for it.

It's difficult to find socks, tights, boots, and jeans that fit large Lipedema legs. Here to help us out is Thunda Thighs, a small Toronto-based retailer offering plus-size thigh high socks that can fit legs measuring 25 to 38 inches.

If thick thighs save lives, then Lipedema thighs must hold the secrets to the Coronavirus vaccine. Despite this dire need for ample thighs to rescue us all from impending disaster, large legs don’t get the love they deserve. If you have large legs, then, you know the struggle. Socks, tights, boots, and jeans that fit large legs are a rare find. Well, Thunda Thighs, a small Toronto-based retailer offering plus-size thigh high socks that can fit legs measuring 25 to 38 inches is making our lives easier and a whole lot sexier.

 

While wearing them all the way up to the largest part of my thighs, I could still pull and stretch them.

I initially found Thunda Thighs Plus size thigh high socks on Etsy, where their reviews jumped out at me. Shoppers were writing things like, “They ACTUALLY fit my THICC thighs!” (When there are two “c’s,” you know its real.) Additionally, Thunda Thighs boasted that their socks were high quality, high stretch, and not see-through. So, I threw my wallet at my laptop screen and ordered a pair of socks in every color and a Thigh Belt.

How do Thunda Thighs Plus Size thigh highs fit?

I’m skeptical of any plus-size pants, tights, stockings, boots, or socks that claim to fit my legs. My upper calves measure 25 inches around, and my mid-thighs measure in at 37 inches. In addition to having large legs, they are shaped by Lipedema. Lipedema legs have several lumps, rolls, and folds in unexpected places. I wear a size 26/28 pants, and I don’t have Lipedema-related cuffing at the ankle. I was able to pull the socks over my calves with no pain or problems. They easily stretched over my thighs. While wearing them all the way up to the largest part of my thighs, I could still pull and stretch them. Thunda Thighs has a right to brag about the quality of their socks. They are so soft and cozy. If your legs are always cold like mine, you’ll love these. They didn’t make me sweat, but I didn’t shiver either. These are beautiful high quality knit socks.

Do they stay up?

As loungewear, you’ll pull them up after walking to the kitchen for “second lunch.” If you plan on wearing them out, you’ll want to add the plus size thigh belt to your order. I was able to wear them all day with no thigh belt while working from home, but I pulled them up every now and then. I also rolled around in the bed to see how the socks moved. It wasn’t too bad, but if you roll around in your sleep, these will likely roll down to your knees.

Final Word:  Sexy. 

 

I fixate on the things that people can do with their legs. I can’t cross my legs, I can’t bend them at the knee and sit on them, and I can’t jog. I’ve never been confident about my legs, but I felt sexy in my Thunda Thighs and that feeling is worth every pair.
