You got that where?? Stockings – The Big Tights Company

Hi Again.. Its Jasmine from Quirky and Curvy

As you may have noticed, I wear stockings everyday usually.

Screen Shot 2015-02-21 at 10.54.02 pmIt is just one of my preferences. I have always disliked pantyhose as finding ones that work on me is very hard and even if they do they drive me bonkers.

Being slightly above average height for a girl 5’7″ (169cm) and plus-size makes getting any stockings or tights a bit of a nightmare.

I get asked a lot over at my Instagram page.. Where do you get those from? And I totally understand the question. Tracking down good fitting, nice feeling stockings for plus size is challenge.

So I thought over a few posts I would share some of my favourite places for stockings.

So first off the rank is..

The Big Tights Company.

Based out of the UK, The Big Tights Company is a haven for the Plus Size Stocking wearer.

They have a pretty decent selection of Stockings and Tights, as well as a few other items.

As I mentioned before I have only worn the stockings as I do not wear tights or pantyhose. I own so many pairs of these stockings and wear them very often.

for those playing at home, I usually wear a size 18 (Australian) in clothes and am 169cm or 5ft7″ Tall.

Plain 20 Denier Matte Stockings – Black, Red and Natural

I wear the smallest size UK 30/32 which fits thighs up to 28″ (71cm) and a height of 5ft 11″

They sit lovely and high on my thighs and do not squeeze or roll at all.

The texture is nice and soft and smooth. They have a wonderful amount of stretch as well so fit so well. They would also be great for those stocking wearers who are shorter with thicker thighs or taller with thinner.

Seamed 20 Denier Stockings – Black and Natural

Screen Shot 2015-02-21 at 10.54.57 pmThese are the size and fit as the plain stockings. The seams look nice, they are not too fine but not clumsy and chunky. they are very flat so it can be a little hard to feel them when putting on to be sure they are straight.

The seams are occasionally prone to wandering but stay put a majority of the time. They are so lovely and comfy.

Prague Lady Lace Top Stockings – Black and Champagne

Screen Shot 2015-02-21 at 10.55.32 pmLike the other stockings I wear the smallest size, UK20/24 that fits Thigh to 29″ (75cms) and a height to 5FT 10″

These have a lovely wide lace welt which doesn’t roll down and sits so nicely on your thigh. No digging in at all. As with the others the stocking is nice and soft.

Big tights company does off a range of Stay ups as well. I have only tried one pair of these, the Microfibre Opaque stay ups. They fit as nice as the ones previously mentioned and being microfibre are great for those cooler days. I do also have to say, much to my surprise the stay up do actually stay up very well and do not roll down. I am still however always likely to wear them with a suspender belt regardless. I just like the look and have trust issues with stay ups.

Screen Shot 2015-02-21 at 10.55.41 pmSo for my fellow plus sized or taller ladies and gents out there who love to or would like to wear stockings I would definitely recommend giving The Big Tights Company a try.
