New Stockings, Girdles, and Tights… Oh My!

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 pink lace one.

Dollhouse Bettie is stocking new designs from Italian hosiery label Sisi’s Fall/Winter ’09 line. My two favorites are these knee-high illusion tights and these sheer stockings with festive lace trim beneath the welt. As far as I know, Dollhouse Bettie is the only retailer stocking Sisi’s products in the US, so these are effectively an exclusive item.

Finally, Folter Clothing is an indie label from my goth/alternative clubbing days. She’s come out with some really fantastic lingerie-inspired and gartered items lately, including the “Boudoir Bettie” dress and these mesh garter panties.

I have a feeling my holiday wish list is going to be very, very long….
