Review: Falke Joan Thigh High Tulle Stockings
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
Above are the Falke Joan thigh highs, nylon/lycra blend, sizes S,M,L, $42.99/pair, sheer, 4 inch welt, available in black or white.
I’ve not yet talked about a pair of tulle stockings in my blog before. Tulle, also known as micronet, is great for people who are really hard on their stockings. People like me. Why? Because tulle requires considerably of effort to rip, run, or ladder. Put siply, it’s the look of sheer hosiery combined with the durability of fishnet.
The Joan thigh highs also come with extra details: a cosmetic backseam and a corset-like ribbon detail on the back of the welt. I don’t know about you, but when I spend upwards of $40.oo on a pair of stockings, I want to feel like I’m getting something extra special and those little additional luxuries help.
I ordered these in size large and they come to the very top of my thigh. If you like your stockings more on the mid-thigh or if you’re on the lower end of the size chart for your indicated size, you may want to consider going a size down. The welt contains a single, wide, very comfortable band of silicone that doesn’t constrict the leg at all. Finally, the tulle itself is exceedingly comfortable and adds an interesting texture to the legs that you can’t get from either sheer hose or fishnets alone (it made me feel a bit like a showgirl or cabaret girl).
The only real downside is that, like most Falke hosiery, they’re on the pricey side. But then again, they are a luxury brand, and quality is worth the cost. Have you ever tried Falke before?
Please note: these are no longer available.
