Thigh high socks are a type of women's hosiery that covers the lower leg and extends above the knee up to mid-thigh. Unlike stockings, which require garters or rubberized elastic tops to stay in place, thigh high socks are elasticized throughout like an ordinary sock, so they will stay up and not compromise leg circulation. Thigh high socks are designed to add warmth to the legs when wearing short outfits during cold weather, they come in a wide variety of creative designs and fun patterns, and can also be considered a fashionable apparel accessory.
