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.

Take a look at what I found… Mary Green Silk Knit with Lace Chemise […]

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 […]

The homage to Ellen von Unwerth continues tonight, but I have to interject and mention something very special that happened to me recently. The Lingerie Post (one of my all-time favorite blogs as well as one of the top lingerie blogs in the world) mentioned me last night. I’m still grinning at the news. What a fantastic start to my weekend! The wonderful ladies at The Lingerie Post also love […]

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 there with backpacking across […]

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 […]
