In the United States, pantyhose are sized by height and weight. The sizes are lettered, with A the smallest. The chart below gives a rough idea of the meaning of various sizes. Sizes beginning with a Q are queen sizes; “QP” is queen petite. Height/weight combinations that occur in more than one size are not colored; the sizes are separated by a slash.
Obviously, if at all possible, shoppers should refer to the manufacturer’s size chart.
