Underwear.co.uk – Our Stockings Buying Guide
Flatter your legs and create an ultra-feminine look with a perfect pair of stockings.
Perfect your pins:
A classic lingerie style, stockings cover your legs from foot to thigh. Elongating your legs and creating a smooth finish, stockings can be worn to finish an everyday look or create a gorgeous boudoir ensemble.
Choosing the right style:
The most popular choice is 10-15 denier for a sheer look, but if you’re looking for more coverage then opt for 40+ denier. Wear sheer toe or open toe stockings with peep-toe heels, or for a durable finish go for a reinforced toe.
Stockings come in a range of styles…here’s just a few of our favourites:
Seamed Stockings – these vintage-inspired stockings feature a visible seam on the reverse for a va-va-voom look
Lace Tops – featuring a gorgeous lace top, these popular stockings create a sophisticated bedroom look
Fishnet – a daring style in a classic open-diamond knit
Choosing the right size:
Use your usual clothing size to get the best fit. A well-fitting pair of stockings should feel comfortable on, have a snug top, and be free from wrinkles or sagging.
