Yesterday I bought a pair of nude PP stretch stockings for 6 AUD from my local Target.
I opened the pack up and instantly did a sick in my mouth, they didn’t look great, I won’t lie.
I took them home after work and tried them on and I have to say that, despite my initial reaction of disgust, I was pleasantly surprised. Before I start, they are not nylons, they don’t look like nylons, they don’t feel like nylons, they are nothing like nylons, however I want to share with the ladies (and gentlemen) among us who love to wear stockings on a daily basis but don’t have a CEO’s salary.
1. The look: 6/10
Well I have to say that from the knee down, paired with a skirt or dress, they look pretty good. They have a nice shine to them and the colour is spot on, just the way I like my nudes. Above the knee however is different, The welts are very thin and don’t even start to resemble the traditional fully fashioned stockings that I love to wear. I have very long legs for a lady as well so they come up a bit short on me. This is not too much of a problem if I wear a long strapped girdle.
2. The feel: 6/10
The feel better than tights and because they are a ‘one size fits all’ style, they are not tight around the top of my thighs. The nylon swish just isn’t there though …
3. Practicality: 9/10
For a clumsy lady like me, these are perfect, I have caught sharp edges on them several times this morning and so far, no snags or ladders.
4. Value for Money: 10/10
Hell yeah! They are 6 AUD!
I am going to stock up on a few pairs of these and explore other shops to see what they have available. I think I might make these my daily work wear and save my beautiful nylons for evenings and weekends. I urge you all to buy a pair of cheap stockings and try them out. Let me know if you do and how you get on!
