"A média"

Is the word they mean to have here "a meia", the word for sock? Seeing as this is, you know, the section about clothing.

I may be wrong but it seems that meia may also mean '6' when enumerating phone numbers. This word comes from 'Half of a dozen'. 2222 6266 (dois, dois, dois, dois, meia, dois, meia, meia

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they are shooting for "socks"/"stockings". Like media in Spanish.

No no!!! There's no média meaning sock in Portuguese. Sock is "meia". "Média" is "mid size (adjective for female nouns, male would be médio)", or "math mean value between numbers", or a slang meaning "mid size cup of coffe with milk".

Meia means Sock. (Meias is plural). But it can also mean "half" when used as adjective.

Meia hora = half an hour
Meio quilo = half a quilogram

Yeah I think it´s "sock", not average xD

yes, it seems an auto-correction mistake.

Why hasn't this been fixed yet?

Had the same issue today!
