Handmade Leg Warmer Sizing
For starters, you are probably familiar with the chinese factory sizing.....DID YOU EVEN KNOW!?
"Number" sizing is factory made and varies per manufactured company.
A "Size 4" obviously is wildly different per each non-handmade/not-made-in-the-usa company.
When you support a manufactured company, you are (accidentally?) supporting many broken systems.
Such as, skewing the feminine size chart and deeply altering how females feel about their bodies.
I keep it real. I keep it simple.
What's real simple?

Elastic-topped Leg Warmers Size Guide Help
Elastic topped leg warmers surely have you covered with a snug and stretchy fit thanks to the elastic band at the top of your leg warmers.
For size matching, you will want to take Your Thigh Measurement and then deduct at least 2 inches.
Take that measurement and then find the size that corresponds to it.
You do NOT want the elastic to be the same measurement as your thigh, as you need the elastic too stretch a bit, as so it creates a snug hold around your leg.
