Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Are you voluptuous? Thick? Full-figured? Plus-sized? Then today’s post is all about you. For too long, I’ve neglected my ladies with vintage, hourglass figures. This time, we’re talking stockings (and other kinds of hosiery) for “real” women. In this article, I’ll discuss the best places to buy the big three: stockings, thigh highs, and tights. As always, if I leave out your favorite brand, […]
Good morning fellow nylon enthusiasts! I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fan of this season’s lace trend. Lace can give even the simplest of outfits that extra edge which pushes you from flat to fabulous. Unfortunately, I can’t quite afford the $55 price tag for Wolford’s Flora lace tights. Fortunately, several other designers have caught on to this trend are producing their own variation. So who comes […]
After lusting over last year’s Chantal Thomass collection, I couldn’t quit without viewing photos of this year’s array, and I’m oh-so-happy I did. In my opinion, Bruno Dayan’s photography perfectly captures the playful yet cultured spirit of the Parisian couturier’s lingerie. And it turns out when I dug a little deeper, that I’d seen Dayan’s work before….
Much like the Lay’s potato chip commericals of the early 1990s, it’s impossible to view just one Chantal Thomass lingerie collection. Of the many, many undergarment ad campaigns I’ve seen, this 2008 one, which uses flowers to both illustrate and offset the delicateness of the lingerie, is one of my favorites.
I finally made it to the end the Ellen von Unwerth rabbit hole by finding these images of her ad campaign for Chantal Thomass a few years back (2006 to be exact). Rosie Huntington-Whitely is quickly becoming one of my favorite lingerie models, but I have to say Melissa Rose Haro (her dark-haired companion) looks rather amazing herself. We’re not done yet, though. Chantal Thomass is known for her seductive […]
I am so tired I can barely keep my eyes open, but I have to blog because today is my 500th post. When I started Stockings Addict, I wasn’t even sure I’d still be around in a month… much less 18 months. And I have to say, without exaggeration, that starting this stockings blog is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life — right up […]
Sock Dreams is one of my favorite legwear shops. Not only do they carry some of the most fabulous socks and stockings known to humankind, they always offer free US shipping. If you haven’t yet visited the online version of this Portland, OR boutique, take a look at what you’re missing…. Kawaii Skeleton Over-the-Knee Socks Who needs a Halloween costume when you’re wearing these, and they’re a scream, I mean […]
Now that we’ve gotten the negative news out of the way by talking about the three kinds of lingerie you should never buy online, let’s move on to a more positive topic — the three types of lingerie that are worth buying from the comfort of your own home. 1) Legwear. My favorite kind of lingerie… this includes stockings, socks, tights, and pantyhose. The internet has a better selection and […]
As retailers are gearing up for the shopping season, they’re getting lots of new and beautiful stock into their stores. Below are some of my favorite recent additions….StockingsHQ is has recently begun carrying their own, exclusive line of shapewear. In terms of fit, function, and outright flirtatiousness, there is nothing like a well-made open-bottom girdle. Now I just have to decide if I want the black skirted version or the […]
I first mentioned LoveChild Boudoir almost a year ago, when her cute vintage redesigned girdles with the heart on the bum first caught my eye. A few months ago, I splurged and purchased one of her PVC bustle skirts which received rave reviews when I wore it to Dragon*Con. Now, LoveChild Boudoir is setting my heart all aflutter again with her latest creations. These decadent designs are almost too lovely […]
