How to measure your thighs

Dear VienneMilano,

I am interested in wearing thigh highs for the first time. Can you tell me where I should be measuring on the thigh (upper or mid-thigh?) for the plus sizing in thigh highs? Thanks!

Angela M.

Thank you for your inquiry! We are so glad to hear that you are trying thigh highs for the first time. Measuring your thighs is a piece-of-cake. Let us show you how.

How to measure your thighs in three easy steps:

  1. Stand up. 
  2. Place your hand on your inseam (right below your crotch). Determine where the bottom of your pinky lands. This is where you will measure your thigh circumference.
  3. Get a flexible tape measure and place it around your thigh measuring. 

How to determine the size of your thigh

Tada! It may be helpful to ask a friend to put the tape measure around your thigh. You will also want to make sure that you are using the correct unit system. For example, if you live in the US, your tape measure should reveal inches. For most other countries in the world, use centimeters or millimeters.  Every apparel brand determines sizes differently. Therefore, after obtaining your measurements, you’ll want to check the size chart. Sizes for VienneMilano Luxury Hosiery can be found here.

It can be downright embarrassing when you wear the wrong size - not to mention that it can be a complete waste of time and money. Be sure to follow these directions, and feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions at
