I love girdles, corsets and bullet bras, but my first love is seamed stockings. My first pair made me feel like a goddess, and every pair since has given me the same feeling.
It really frustrates me that hosiery brands don’t make bigger sizes than they do, even someone who wears an Australian size 14 is often too big for the biggest pair of stockings on the market.
Earlier this year I brought out my seamfree Queen sized stockings which I love, but I have been keen to get some seamed stockings for curvy ladies made up too. After a lot of waiting and a big language barrier between the manufacturer and myself, we got there and I’m really pleased with them.
There are a few cool things about these stockings, other than the fact they have a kick-ass contrast seam. Firstly, and most importantly, these stockings are available in sizes medium, large, XL, 2XL, 3XL and 4XL which I’m very happy about.
Secondly, the toe has been designed so that if these stockings are worn with open-toe shoes, it is skin coloured rather than black. I’ve had a lot of feedback from women who have told me that they hate the toe being so obvious on stockings and this should definitely help.
Lastly, the welts (the top of the stockings) are the same colour as the rest of the stocking instead of being black. This means that if you want to wear a shorter dress or have a high split on your skirt, then the stocking top is going to be much more subtle than one with a black welt.
I hope you love these as much as I do. If you would like to buy a pair, please visit my online shop.
