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–like me. Why? Because tulle requires a lot of effort to rip, run, or ladder. Stated plainly, it’s the look of sheer hosiery combined with the durability of fishnet.
The Joan thigh highs also come with extra details: a backseam and ribbon corseting 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 special and those little, additional luxuries help.
I ordered these in size large and they come to the very top of my thigh, so, if you like your stockings more on the mid-thigh or if you’re on the low end for your indicated size, you may want to consider going one 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 reminded me of a cabaret girl).
The only real con is that, like most Falke hose, they’re a bit pricey, but, as I’ve said before, quality always is. You can purchase here.
