I have a question about stockings. I’m a mother of two little daughters and its not easy to wear my stockings (What Katie Did retro seamed or Gio fully fashioned) more then 2-3 times. Sometimes I already have a run after just 1 time. Can you advise me in a more durable stocking? Because now its getting a bit expensive…
I absolutely understand your problem, one of the things that puts a lot of women off wearing stockings is the cost so I think this is a useful question for everyone.
So first of all I’m going to say that as lovely and luxurious as Gios are, they are not strong at all. I often comment to my partner when opening a new pair of Gios that they will probably get snags from just taking them out of the pack.
I’m guessing from the stockings that you mentioned in your question, that you are a fan of a seam up the back of each leg.
Prices are in Euros because I know that you are from Europe but different currencies are available on the website.
Eleganti RHT stockings – SEAMED – RARE – SECONDS – 7.59 Euros – These are seamed RHT nylons so if you’re after a similar feeling to your Gios, these could work but please note that they are also fragile.
Gipsy 1055 Cuban Heel seamed stockings – 5.74 Euros
Silky Scarlet Seamer seamed stockings – 4.45 Euros
Cette Berlin point heel seamed stockings – 8.36 Euros
However, if you don’t mind not having seams, there are some super cheap seamless stockings available that I wear a lot (to my boyfriends disgust), they last ages.
Silky Smooth Knit stockings – 1.77 Euros
Silky Super Shine plain top stockings – 2.87 Euros
Pretty Polly Everyday Plus Soft Shine stockings – 3.19 Euros

Cindy 15 denier everyday sheer stockings – 1.66 Euros
Levante Vanessa diamond top stockings – 7.59 Euros – These are absolutely amazing and long lasting!
I hope this helps 🙂
