stockings

It’s that time of year when we all start stocking up on sweaters and tights in preparation for colder weather, so today I thought I’d cover some of the best plus size options out there. These range from fully fashioned stockings to trendy and whimsical tights, so there should be something here for everyone. If you can’t get enough of silk, there’s even a 100% silk pair of stockings thrown […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Now that it’s almost Autumn, my thoughts are turning towards fall legwear – tights, leggings, socks, stockings, and that sort of thing. I love hosiery because of it’s ability to update almost any outfit; a basic skirt or dress can look completely different when paired with a pair of electric purple tights vs. a  pair of skintone fishnets. Hosiery was my first introduction […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Update: Between posting this item and checking it again, the thigh highs shown below have sold out! For a replacement item, I’d recommend taking a look at Pretty Polly’s Fishnet Mock Thigh High Tights. They’re not as cheap as the DKNY stockings below, but they are a great look for fall. We’re keeping things simple with this week’s Lingerie Sale Pick of the […]

I finally set aside some time this weekend and dealt with my overflow of lingerie. My situation is obviously more drastic than other peoples’, as I see lots of lingerie due to my column here and my job as a lingerie copywriter. However, almost all of us have stuff that is old, worn out, or lingerie that we just don’t wear lurking around in our lingerie drawers. Since most of […]

Designing lingerie can be a hard, grueling job, but someone’s got to do it! Not that it’s without its perks, of course. However ,the industry is by no means a cushy one, and often the job is not nearly as luxurious as it seems. There are certain times the workload can get downright unbearable with 18-hour work days, non-stop travel and back-to-back meetings monopolizing your entire schedule, let alone your […]

Though I have no idea who Giles Deacon is and though I don’t have an Ann Summers anywhere near me, I’ve been keeping an eye out for the Giles Deacon for Ann Summers collection ever since I first glimpsed it on Vogue UK. I’m always intrigued when a mainstream fashion designer collaborates with a lingerie company; the opportunity to see something altogether new and exciting is one I can’t resist. […]

Disclosure: Stockings provided for review by VienneMilano. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I’d run into VienneMilano stockings several times while browsing the internet, but I’d always assumed their range wouldn’t fit me. On paper, they’re the perfect stocking solution for lots of people. Their stockings are made from warm cashmere, silky soft microfiber and other luxe Italian materials. Despite their pedigree, most pairs of thigh highs run around […]

Founded in the 1950s in Lyon, France, Lise Charmel is the very essence of French lingerie. Their luxurious laces and exquisite construction techniques are second to none, and this is a label that really shows how theatrical, opulent, and extravagant high-end lingerie can be. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing several Lise Charmel sets in person lately (and trying quite a few on), and they quite literally take my breath […]

The stockings featured were sent to me by Hosieree.com. All thoughts and opinions are my own. All photos courtesy of Hosieree.com. I’ll admit it. I don’t think I’ve worn stockings since 2003. My obsession with opaque tights for fall and winter excluded, I’ve mostly rocked a bare leg when given the chance of hose or no hose. I’d seen others, like Cora, indulge and share their experiences, but personally, I […]

Disclosure: The lingerie discussed here was sent to me free of charge for review purposes by Sweet Pins. All opinions are my own. I always wish I were one of those women who looks sharp all the time. You know the types: hair always in place, evenly applied lipstick, flattering clothing that she wears with comfort, heels that seem not to hurt her feet, and stockings — stockings with no […]
