If you don't know by now, I have some large calves to go with my large, curvy body. I never thought that I would find a pair of knee boots to fit me, but I have. It's all thanks to a really great website which shall remain nameless (if you want to know because you have the same problem, PM me). I'm almost at the point of tears. They are a little tight right now, but they will stretch out as I wear them. I'm going to run across the way and have my mother take pics of me in them.
