I had just heard about thigh high socks, recently, and decided to give them a try. As I've gotten older I have found that I don't like tight things around my waist and tights have a tendency to be tight in the waist. These thigh high socks are really nice. I'm 5'4 and the tights go all the way up to my upper thigh. They seem to be good quality, warm, sleek and smooth. They stay up, too, unlike over the knee socks I've bought. The only drawback is that the upper band tends to roll up. Otherwise, I would definitely order more in different colors.
