Ask me anything! New question!

Hi gorgeous! 

I am a long time and regular wearer of stockings because I abhor full tights and the roll down I always get, at the top. However, I prefer a thick stocking, rather than a sheer. Have you ever true the high denier stockings? If so, which manufacturer do you recommend? 

Thanks!

Thanks for your message Tanda! It’s good to hear that you are wearing stockings rather than tights.

I don’t wear sheer stockings very much, mainly because I get too hot, especially in Australia. However, there are some good opaque stockings out there.

If you’re looking for a casual stocking, rather than real nylon, Stockings HQ sell Nylonica Linea Lusso Microfibre 55 opaque stockings which are also available in plus sizes. These are fun because they come in lots of different colours.

If you’re looking for real nylons, there are not many options, you can get semi-opaque nylons here but they are quite pricey so it all depends on your budget.

However, my ultimate recommendation, if you like wearing natural coloured stockings, would be to buy vintage. I own several pairs of the below vintage stockings and they very thick, and very opaque-like. I will post some pictures of these stockings later in the week.

I hope this helps!

  1. Hello, Cervin in France makes 45 denier fully fashioned nylon stockings:

    They are thick. The only thing I do not like about them are the reinforcements around the toe. The are to small. They are for sale everywhere. Just google: liberation 45 cervin.
    Also thick stockings are vintage rayon stockings:

  2. sorry for reviving an old-ish thread but if you can find vintage Hanes Alive stockings, give them a try. They’re support stockings. The high denier helps with coverage and makes very durable yet they feel fabulous!

  3. I was curious, if you don’t mind me asking, what size you are? I’m a 14/16 and find it so hard to find stockings/garters that fit me. I’d love to wear pretty much everything you wear, but I don’t know where to begin looking to find anything that would fit me. If you have any suggestions, I would really appreciate it!

    • Hi lovely, I am going to post this as an ‘ask me anything’ question so that everyone has access to my feedback. This is a great question btw, and I’m a size 14/16 too! x
