The big calves are not, of course, of the mooing variety. Rather, the calves that comprise the lower half of your legs.
Even when I was thin (Really. I was. I swear. There are people reading this who have only known me as a thin person, even!), my calves were mighty, and knee socks were a problem. However, I’ve had remarkable luck with the Sock It To Me brand of socks, which I buy from Amazon (because, hey, Prime eligible).  The knee-high socks actually fit over my calves. They are taut enough to stay up, but are not so tight that they hurt. The fabric is thicker than nylon trouser socks, but thinner than your average sock, which I like, because my feet tend to overheat. Overall, I’m really happy with them, and I am pleased to have found funky knee-high socks that I can actually wear.
We now return you to your regular broadcast.
- In the interest of full disclosure, if you buy socks using that link, I get a cut, but I don’t know anything about who bought things, or what they bought.
