Glitter, Sparkle, and Shine: 5 Pairs of Burlesque Stockings

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. 

Though I’ve only performed on stage twice (as my alter-ego Velvet Le Soie), burlesque still holds a very special place in my heart. I love the history. I love the characters.  And, of course, I love the costumes.

Whether it’s outfitted with feathers or encrusted with rhinestones, few things make me more joyful than a beautiful burlesque costume. With that in mind, here are my five favorite showgirl-worthy pairs of hosiery.

La Lilouche Sprinkle Black Fishnet Hold-ups. OSFA. $75.00US.

Kiss Me Quick Showgirl Stockings. XS-XL. $25.00AU.

Cervin ‘Seduction Coeur’ Stockings. S-XXL. $45.31US.

What Katie Did Metallic Seamed Stockings. S/M-M/L. $18.00US.

Stockingirl Crystal Accented Backseam Stockings. S-XL. $35.99US.

    These all look beautiful but I have a real problem with stockings laddering after only a few wears – cheap and expensive brands alike. Since you love your stockings so much I’m sure you know which brands to buy that I can spend my money on and get more than a wear or two! Any recommendations?

      Hi Estelle,

      I’m a big fan of Cervin, Wolford, Gerbe, and What Katie Did. I find that being careful when you put on your hosiery, being well-moisturized (both hands and feet), and wearing hosiery gloves (especially if you have rough hands) goes a long way towards preventing runs.


  2. I love the sparkly ones!

    These are all gorgeous, but I have to add these guys! http://www.falbala.co.uk/ I’d bought some red ones from her before and they were gorgeous quality and great value. I’m so tempted by the personalised ones!
