Plus-size calves love Sock Dreams

I love the idea of OTK socks (over-the-knee). But my calves are 19 inches at their widest point. Target socks don't fit that. At all. Sock Dreams, however, has a whole plus-size section. AND they tell you how wide the socks stretch. They do play a little fast and loose with the term "plus size", but you can find some great OTKs if you look. Their socks are more expensive than a big box store...but they fit! (And they're much nicer/better made than what you would buy at Target/Walmart.) These are thigh-highs which stretch to 24 inches, but over my leggings that just won't fly. The most tempting thing about Sock Dreams, though, is that they have basic free shipping and that it's super quick. I ordered these on the 19th and got them on the 21st. I live in VA and they ship from Portland!

  1. I had a great experience with them recently too...they actually told me all of the socks that will accommodate 19" calves. So high five for fab calves!

  2. Yeah, Sock Dreams is pretty brill! Their measurements aren't always 100% accurate, but they're trying, and seem like they're flexible about stuff that doesn't fit. On the outfit side of things, I love gray and pink. Purple? Pink? Gray and that color right there.

    1. Woe to inaccurate photo colors! The undershirt is a pinky-purple, the sweater a lavender-with-a-hint-of-gray, and the socks are green!
