In this post, I write about some of the stockings and hosiery I have tried.
Fever Hold Ups with Red Bows
I bought these to go with a red babydoll for Valentine’s weekend to surprise my hubby. They would also do nicely, for a sexy Christmas lingerie ensemble. The cardboard packaging is smart, and the stockings fit well. I didn’t wear them with a suspender belt, but they held up fine on their own. The material is nicely smooth, and opaque. It seems fairly resistant to snagging, which is good as my hands get rough in cold winter weather! The bows are very cute.
Gabriella Lace Top Hold Ups with Back Seam
I decided to wear these hold ups out on a trip to a bar in town, which was a mistake, as halfway through the walk from the car park into town they started sliding down my legs and it wasn’t long before they were around my knees. I’m 5’3, and a size 14, though having bought them in an M/L which says ‘fits sizes 12-16’, I would expect them to stay in place.
The seam looks sexy, though like others I struggled with getting a nice vertical line with one of them. First time I put it on, it went asymmetrically up my leg, but with the help of a mirror, and lifting my leg in front of me, I managed to get it reasonably straight.
I’m disappointed that they didn’t stay up, as it meant I had to keep ducking into doorways on my way into town to pull them up – not a desperately sexy thing to do when you’re trying to be more sexy for your OH! I’ll keep them for bedroom use, although not sure I’d buy this brand again. I feel surprised I had this experience with them considering other people rated them so highly. Maybe it was just my legs!
Available in sizes S/M (6-10) and M/L (12-16) for £8.99 at Lovehoney.
Mandy Mystery Body stocking
The Mandy Mystery bodystocking oozes so much sex appeal, it’s too sexy for my body, haha! I got the large size and I am a petite 5’3″ with a 12-14 figure. I’d never worn a body stocking before, but this one appealed as I love black lacy lingerie, and I wanted to disguise my mummy pouch.
Moreover, I think a bit of body coverage leaves something to the imagination, whilst the criss-crossed opening at the top enhances my favourite assets. My only main issue with this garment is that it is a bit long for me, so there is a bit of excess material around the bottom of the legs. No matter, I can wear boots (preferably kinky ones)!
