Lucky me gets to wear compression leggings or tights for the next 6 months. I would prefer leggings but cannot find anything in my size. Specs: Opaque Open-toe leggings (not pantyhose) 3x -- 5’8” and 255lbs 10-20mmGH compression Black or gray ”Sports” leggings are ok if compression is graded Thanks for any leads. Google-fu fail!

Try looking for lipoedema leggings. What you seek exists but probably by at a local retailer. Just for examples on amazon

Not sure about their full range of sizes, but I know Zensah has a wide range of compression clothes and leggings. It is marketed primarily as sportswear.

Anything at all tight really hurts my toes, so I cut the toe seam and apply nail polish to stop the fraying.

Mojo and the aforementioned Zensah make really good compression socks/leggings/sleeves in all grades.

OP here: Thanks for the ideas. Mojo doesn’t make my size and Zensah makes only a semi-opaque tight (can't wear alone). Coming up empty on Amazon. Gah!!

I don't know if they would have sufficient compression, but what about these leggings from Junonia?
