Hosiery garments are the product of hosiery fabric produced from hosiery yarn. Like the yarn used for making woven fabric, hosiery yarn comes from a separate spinning (yarn making) process, and is used with circular knitting machines to form fabric. One or more hosiery yarn is used to make knitted or hosiery fabric, and garments produced out of this are generally referred to as hosiery garments.

Learning how to measure bra size can feel uncomfortable, but knowing your measurements—and keeping them written in a note on your phone or somewhere else that’s accessible when the bra-shopping mood strikes—will make bra shopping so much easier, especially for online shoppers. Equipment is minimal. All you need is a tape measure and a little free time, and you’ll have saved yourself a lot of bra-shopping misery. Best of all, knowing how to measure your bust will make adjusting to changes in your breasts (from losing or gaining weight, hormone fluctuations, aging, pregnancy, and more) so much less stressful.

Cora Harrington (a.k.a. the Lingerie Addict), the author of In Intimate Detail: How to Choose, Wear, and Love Lingerie, says that if you want something you can easily find at your local department store, Natori’s Girl Briefs are her favorite “mainstream” underwear (we heard about Harrington’s more obscure picks, too, which are further down this list). “They’re cute. They’re comfy. The Pima cotton means they’re supersoft,” she explains. “Nordstrom includes them in their annual anniversary sale, and my secret tip is to buy discontinued colorways … after all, no one cares what color your underwear is!” Dolley Frearson, co-founder and creative director of High Fashion Home, is another fan of the Natori Girl Briefs. “For everyday underwear, I need it to feel comfortable and breathable,” she says. “I also need it to appear smooth, and not pinch my skin in any place or ride up.” For Frearson, the Natori briefs check all of those boxes. “They will eventually replace almost all of your underwear in your drawer,” she promises.
Helping other women learn how to measure bra size is part of what got us here. By learning the different shapes, sizes, and measurements of millions women, we created bras with unmatched comfort and support, and put that community data to use in The Original Fit Quiz for women everywhere to find bras in their right size — no fitting rooms, no measuring tape, no sifting through store racks for a bra you might fit into.
“My underwear drawer is the most boring place in the world, because all I have are dozens of pairs of the same thing: On Gossamer’s Mesh Bikinis,” says Kim France, the founding editor of Lucky, who counted these as an item she can’t live without. “It is so far and away the perfect underwear that I have a hard time understanding why anybody wears anything else: It’s superlight, highly breathable, and — most importantly — hugely VPL-resistant. Seriously, it’s as VPL-resistant as a thong, but without the annoyingness of a thong,” she says. France isn’t the only one who loves On Gossamer mesh bikinis — they have also been a many-time Strategist best seller.

Champion bras offer the support you need for working out, running and other vigorous exercise. Lots of colors and styles are all designed to keep you comfortable on the move. Bra sizes 34B-44DDD. A final note: Bra size is not a constant. You probably do not wear the same bra size you wore five years ago. Many factors can affect your bra size, in addition to the brand or style you choose, including weight gain or loss, aging, exercise routine and pregnancy. We recommend you measure your bra size annually.
If the band is roomy enough for you to be able to comfortably fasten it on the tightest adjustment, try a smaller band, for example if a 32D is too loose, try a 30DD. Remember that the cup size has to be changed when you move to a different band size - for every band you go down, you must go up by one cup size in order for the cups to remain the same capacity and vice versa.

When we asked rapper Junglepussy about her pick, she told us she’s “very loyal” to Calvin Klein underwear. “Just ask my boo, he sees them every sleepover and probably assumes they sponsor me, but it’s my hard-earned dollars maintaining this luxury,” she says. “They give me a smooth finish under fitted clothing and their fabric keeps the coochie fresca. I have every color Calvin in these cuts.”

Lisa Buhler, founder of Lisa Says Gah, told us that she’s a big fan of Swiss lingerie brand Hanro for its “luxe fabrics and classic designs.” (The brand also came up when we talked to some cool and stylish women about their favorite bathrobes.) If the price of the Hanro bikini is a little steep, Buhler suggests Everlane’s underwear, which she says has a similar design to Hanro at a fraction of the price.
Laura Schubert, co-founder of pubic-hair-oil company Fur, says ODDOBODY’s underwear is “perfect” — especially the brief. “It’s a classic,” she says. “I love a classic brief because they are comfortable and easy to wear. The stitching and fabric ensures that they don’t bunch or have weird lines.” Schubert also likes that the brand’s pieces are made of 100 percent cotton, and that ODDOBODY “promotes speaking comfortably about bodies, health, and identity.”
Like falling in love, when it happens, you’ll know. Your breasts will be where you want them to be and look how you want them to look. You should feel lifted and supported, with zero pain. You know how when something doesn’t feel quite right, it’s all you can think about? This is the opposite of that. When the fit is fab, you won’t think about your bra at all. You’ll be contained, comfortable, confident and in control of your day. The perfect fit frees you up to handle anything; it lets you do you.

Very comfortable. I was hoping the leg openings wouldn't pinch or cut into my inner thighs and they don't at all. Stretchy but snug. I usually wear XL in panties but I could have gone down a size for a little extra support. Overall, nice undergarment. Definitely holds in the muffin top but I wish the tummy control extended a little more toward the tummy pouch.


If the underwires are pressing painfully against your breastbone at the centre front you may need a smaller cup size or you could try a plunge style with a lower centre front (this is more likely to be an issue with the cups than the band.) Or you might just be human, and it's the shaping of your ribcage. In that case, wait for the bra to be "broken in" and see how it fits then, or go with the lower centre front.

It might be awkward, but this is our last chance, so please don't scroll past this. This Tuesday we humbly ask you to defend Wikipedia's independence. Our 2019 fundraiser will be over very soon. 98% of our readers don't give; they look the other way. If you are an exceptional reader who already donated, we sincerely thank you. If all our readers donated just $2.75 today, Wikipedia could thrive for years. Most people donate because Wikipedia is so useful. If Wikipedia gave you $2.75 worth of knowledge this year, take a minute to secure its future with a gift to the Wikimedia Endowment.

Whether you wear it everyday or just on special occasions, hosiery is an essential part of a woman’s wardrobe. These days hosiery, like your jewelry or shoe collection, is a way to make a fashion statement and is an extension of your personal style. From elegant nude pantyhose to exotic fishnets and basic black opaques, Bare Necessities has all the hosiery and socks the modern woman, whether she is plus size, tall or average, could need.
Know that cup size is not absolute. This is the biggest myth about bra sizes: that a D cup looks the same on every band size, or that having small breasts automatically means you're an A cup. Actually, cup size is proportional to band size — meaning it's dependent on your band measurement. For instance, a 32 D will fill out less volume than a 36 D, but they're both D cups.[1]
In addition to our hosiery collection, we also carry leggings and socks that fit perfectly into any woman’s modern wardrobe. Leggings are a reliable staple that work in any woman’s wardrobe whether she is average or plus size. We carry an array of leggings that go from basic black spandex to cutting edge lace. Besides fashion, we have shaping leggings from brands like Lytess and Yummie that are the perfect combination of style and slimming. When it comes to socks, we are stocked! We cater to all of your sock needs with athletic, trouser, knee high, novelty, crew and low cut from brands like Hot Sox, Gold Toe, Ralph Lauren, K Bell and more! We even help you stick to your budget with multi-pack socks that promise a true bang for your buck. It is time to refresh your sock drawer with the best hosiery, leggings and socks from Bare Necessities.

Hosiery is a class of tight-fitting garments worn on the legs and/or feet. For the most part, hosiery has a knit construction. So, socks, anklets, pantyhose, fishnets, nylons, leggings, tights and stockings all fall under the hosiery category. Available in different colors, textures, opacities, styles and even shapewear control levels, hosiery is a great way to transform an outfit and make a statement as well as give your legs a subtle, polished look.

One of the most difficult aspects of shopping for cute lingerie is purchasing the perfect fit. VENUS has a fit guide to help you choose the most appropriate sizes. Plus, if you're not sure what to pair something with, VENUS has got your back with helpful pairing suggestions under each piece. For instance, black lingerie can be worn under most clothing items, but if you purchase a strapless bra, you will be encouraged via pairing suggestions to put it with off-the-shoulder tops and backless dresses. Bralettes go great with sheer shirts as well as loose fitted tank tops because they are often decorative and offer a different kind of coverage. Unlined bras are wonderful for light and airy clothes while coverage bras pair well with your favorite tee.
