Rated 1 out of 5Â by NoSocksForMe Regular size product sold as plus size
When these arrived, the packaging on the sock itself had NO indication of size whatsoever. The plastic baggie they were in had a sticker that said 4X-7X, as I had ordered.
Taking these out, it appears likely that these are NOT anything but a regular sized sock. Even after testing and stretching, I could NOT get the sock onto the ball of my foot. THE BALL OF MY FOOT. Forget getting it up the leg. It's almost as if it's a child's size. It's THAT small.
It didn't dawn on me to have to TRY ON socks, so I have unpacked and thrown away all the packaging so I cannot return them. Bummer.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Duchess had to give it 1 star b/c I couldn't give zero
I bought these b/c I am on my feet for 12-13 hours a day. I was excited when they came b/c I was ready for some relief. I got the 4x-7x b/c I didn't want to take any chances of them being too small. HA!!! I couldn't even SQUEEZE them over my heel. I had a friend [average sized] try them on & they were tight on her. I had my mom [petite, 5' 3" & 115#] try them on & they fit her...granted they are thigh highs on her but she has a new pair of stockings. I can only hope they had been put in the wrong package. Regardless, I'm out $7. grrrr!!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by sadshopper Very disappointing
The material felt very snug and would have worked great for a support stocking if my calf were smaller or if I had bought them a couple of sizes larger. That's discouraging. I was able to get them on, but they strangled the top of my calf and wouldn't stay up. As they rolled down, it felt like a tourniquet on my leg.

I have tried most of the knee hi trouser socks sold here. I have a 19" calf at the widest point and just under my knee it is 17". The size guide puts me at a 3x but wanting them not to dig in to my leg and leave 1/2" deep mark/ring around my leg. I bought the 4x-7x. I have worn T.E.D. by Kendell support socks. These are a bit lighter and look more like a normal sock. They do not rings or mark any more or less than the T.E.D. socks. These are a bit long for me but I felt I needed the 4x-7x size to not have them too tight on the top. Much to my surprise because these more evenly tight on the leg the dig is more comfortable. It is still happening but not until later in the day. They are long so to help control the clumping/sagging at the ankle I have left the heel of the sock in the instep of my shoe and extra in the toe. I might try these again in 1x-3x. Fair warning because these are support socks it takes some pull to get them on. By the end of the day (8-10 hrs) I do find myself adjusting the rings around my ankle & calf. I like the rings/marks on my legs are dangerous so I try to adjust the sock but these are not painful rings are the other non-support socks are. These might be as good as it gets.
