Lingerie Addict Flashback: My Very First Post

Last Friday, in an e-mail sent out to my Very Important Addicts, I offered a prize to the first three people who could guess the subject of my very first post. I got a lot of responses, but not very many correct answers, so I thought I’d reblog the article for everyone to see. In a fit of creative genius, my very first post is titled… My Very First Post. Ladies and gentlemen, these are the stockings that started it all.

The stockings above are one of the most gorgeous pairs I have ever seen. Super sheer legs (8 denier nylon/lycra blend, so you’d better have baby soft hands or a pair of hosiery gloves) and fabulously glamorous welts.

Seriously… peacock feathers. How luxurious is that?

Falke has a great reputation for quality and art in their hosiery, so these aren’t the kind of stockings you’ll throw away after only one wear. Unfortunately, this kind of indulgence doesn’t come cheap.

However, if you like stockings, then I believe these are well worth it. Not only is the turquoise and gold welt like jewelry for your legs (the silicone bands are also super comfortable and stretch to fit my larger-than-average thighs without slipping down or digging in), the nylon is incredibly soft and feels like silk going on.

Simply put, these make your legs look and feel like a million dollars.

In case you can’t tell, I have a mad crush on these stockings. If you’re interested, they’re sold here.

    Like I said, 'my very first post' should have given it away!! Hehe.

    Those stockings are quite gorgeous though-I'm forever a fan of peacock feathers! There's just something so fun and classy about them :D

    I used to travel to London 6 to 10 times per year and would always head to Selfrigges fourth floor. They had a supply of these peacock thigh highs but only in small!! My wife is 5'8" and this short style is like using some of the one size American stockings. I did find that other European styles do come in long, but I agree that these were some of the nicest hold-ups that I ever saw. Maybe $38 to $40 per pair?

    Thank you for the contest and good luck with your future blogs.
