Hey Sockdreams, I have a problem. I am obsessed with sweather knit thigh highs but it's usually way too hot to wear them here in SoCal. Got any suggestions for thigh highs that are on the cooler side? Please not nylons though, I can't keep those things on for more than 6 hours before they tear.
I feel you on the thin nylon ones–they’re so pretty, but I am a clumsy beast. If I don’t put my thumb through them while trying to get them on, I’m sure to gently brush a wall later in the day and somehow put a gigantic rip in them.
I grew up in SoCal (San Diego/Riverside), but it’s been a while since I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying that kind of weather (unless you count Oregon’s unusually hot summer this year), so I might be reaching on some of these. If anyone else who loves long socks has found a way to beat the heat, please chime in with your hot-weather faves.
Extraordinary Roll-Top Thigh Highs - If you dig the body of the regular Extraordinaries, but the cuffs are too thick, this eliminates that issue. However, you’ll need garters holding these puppies up for sure. If a full Garter Belt is too hot (it is for me), Double Grip Clips will also do the job without adding too many layers.
Pointelle Scrunch-Top Knee Socks - Lace is an excellent option for coverage that won’t overheat. The tops of these are super fluttery. Note: the cuffs won’t stay up on your thighs without being held up, as they’re meant to pool lazily around the knee area.
Hi there sock friends! I'm looking into getting a pair of basic black thigh highs but your signature cotton ones have been out of stock for a really long time. Will they be back in stock soon or can you suggest an alternative? I'd like something sturdy and warm for this winter. Thanks for your time!
