It’s a Backseam Battle Royale!

In the red corner, we’ve got Agent Provocateur’s Snake Hold-up Stockings. Perfect for luxury lovers, these thigh highs retail for $60 and feature a sinuous serpent slinking down the back of each leg.

In the blue corner, we have Asos’ version — nude, sheer tights with a winding, writhing reptile instead of the traditional backseam. And a near steal at only $14.20!

Whose hosiery will come out on top? Are the Agent Provocateur’s a must have, no matter the cost? Or are the Asos pantyhose a suitable (or, dare I say it,  preferable) alternative? Inquiring minds want to know, so tell me in the comments!

P.S. I know this post was a bit silly, but if you enjoyed reading it, please stumble me!

Update: Katie, the lingerie sale maven over at KnickersBlog, found an even better budget version of the snake seam tights. No idea who made them, but they seem to match the Agent Provocateur’s almost exactly. And they’re still only $20. Thanks, Katie!
