Hosiery Advocate's Boutique started off in November 2011 as a Canadian small business aimed at helping women and men, who live far away from department stores, have easy access to popular department store brands and styles.
By far, the most popular brand and style has been Silks Waistless tights [style #19295]. These tights are rarely stocked in department stores [at the time of writing], but women still love them.
A main goal of this web site is to offer products and product knowledge of a handful of items.
Another main goal is to provide customized customer service. I discovered that shorter women and taller women share the same problem of not finding hosiery that actually fits. I, Hosiery Advocate, am proud to be the first [i.e.: first, as far as I can tell], retailer to offer cutomized sizes for petite and tall people.
P sizes are shortened hosiery. I take the size that fits you the best, then flip them inside out, then sew across the foot portion of the hosiery, then cut away excess fabric, and then flip them outside out again. Please contact me, so that I can guide you through the process. I will ask you for your various measurements: inseam; hip; height; weight. Feel free to tell me only what you are comfortable with.
T sizes are lengthened hosiery. This is ideal for long legged women, who fit the panty portions offered by manufacturers, but cannot find the right length. I take 2 pairs of hosiery, and then cut, combine, and sew, them to make a longer pair.
