Q: Sweetie, I need help finding plus-sized backseam stockings for garters. Any thoughts? I wear L-XL, but hate a stocking that is too small. Thanks!
A: Hmmm…I rarely recommend them, but I think Leg Avenue would be your best bet. They’re the only manufacturer of plus-sized, stretch, backseam stockings I’m able to find. Hips and Curves has the nude/black version in stock for only $7.95. Hope this helps, and please let me know how they work out!
Got a question for The Addict? Ask me here or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can’t wait to read (and answer!) your questions.
Edit: Steph just got back in touch with some great plus-sized backseams over at Stockingirl too. The Gigi Retros and Red/Black Contrast Seams retail for $29.99 and are both available up to size 3XL fitting a maximum height/weight of 6’1″ and 210 lbs. The Marissa Bi-colors (pictured right and a personal fave) retail for $22.99 and go up to size 2XL fitting a maximum height/weight of 6’3 and 220 lbs. Stockingirl is also running a Valentine’s Day special where can you can save 15% on your purchases with the code 321. And don’t forget that you can always check out this post from last October–Stockings, Tights, and Pantyhose for Curvy Gals. Happy Shopping!
