Every year, without fail, they ask me for a particular item in my closet: my thigh high boots.
I found them four years ago on a whim while shopping with my mother, which ironically encouraged me to try them. I used them initially for a New Year party and, of course, I wouldn't recommend having a heel like this for the first time on a night like that. I love my plus size thigh high heels so must.
Let's say I spent a good part of my night looking for places to sit. I wore these baggy boots in my blog every year and one of my images with these boots is now one of the best search results for the word "feminist". I'm not at all angry about it (though that same image was used for countless hate memes).
My ideal way to combine thigh high boots has not changed since I first used them. Usually, I choose to wear shorts or go without pants completely. And this year was no different.
As people loved to point out, these boots are not so high on my thighs. But considering that most of the boots pass through my ankle and cover the top of my hat to the knee, these are high boots for me, damn it. Furthermore, the term "calf-length over-the-knee" has been used to describe this style and this seems appropriate also because no one is making boots that are high to thick thighs.
Plus Size Thigh Highs Boots
My calves measure 19 inches but the measure of my thighs just above my calf is closer to 24
inches. These do not have zippers, but they stretch back so you can use them. Stretching these boots over the knee makes a difference when it comes to covering those extra five inches.
I combined the boots with the extra long Rebdolls sweatshirt (available up to 4X) and a plus size Rainbow suede leather belt. Check out the details of the outfit below!
Thankfully, the store where I found these plus size thigh highs boots is Heelstoday and until this year, it was always a challenge to find similar styles that could make people look for a pair for them. Fortunately, there are now a few different options for thigh high boots and I am happy to share them with you after years of questions and not having a good answer.
Tips For The Best Thigh High Boots
My best tips when buying knee-high stockings online are similar to those described in my extensive thigh high boot shopping guide: learn your measurements, look at the contents of the fabric and see the return policy. The only thing I will add to the purchase of high boots is to verify the height above the calf circumference.
I found a couple that I loved checking the height measurement and I realized that they would reach almost to the bone of my hip because I am very low (and this is IF they even fit). Another thing is to look for lanyard styles in which the laces can be loosened for additional width. My favorite thigh boots I found for this year are below!
