Decent stockings for every day
Reviewed: August 18, 2014 by Sapiosexual, a Bisexual Going Steady Female
I was sent these by Lovehoney to review, and was pleasantly surprised by them. As they're the cheapest stockings available on Lovehoney, I might have overlooked them when shopping. After all you usually "get what you pay for."
My first impression was that they feel wonderful ("oooh, soft" was my partner's input here). The fabric is very comfortable, and doesn't have any of the unevenness of colour that some cheaper stockings and tights sometimes have. I've been wearing them all day, through a lot of walking, stairs, wind, rain, and mud splashes and they still feel very comfy. They've not snagged or torn, but the fabric has pulled slightly in one place, though it's not noticeable.
I've warmed to how they look (my eye is usually drawn to pretty and elaborately topped stockings). However, the plain top does make these far easier to match with things. They're good for a simple day-to-day look, or for in the bedroom when lacy tops just don't work. I might get some of the black ones for when I'm in a dominating mood!
On me, they fit pretty well. I'm about average height (5' 6") and a size 10 and they easily pull up to just above mid thigh. As they're stretchy, they'd be fine on someone shorter, but I don't know how well they'd fit someone taller without a really secure garter belt holding them up.
One definite plus point is that the tops are lovely and stretchy, and not too tight. I can easily fit my fist inside the top, so there's a good bit of flexibility of fit there. This is probably the main reason they've been comfy all day, as my legs don't feel squeezed by elastic.
The only real issue I have with them is the colour. Naturally, "nude" isn't the same for everyone, and these are ever so slightly too dark for my skin tone. I'm usually quite pale, and they only just match the tan left over from my summer holiday. In the winter, I may find they're too dark. Bearing that in mind, I'd say they're best suited for someone with a light to mid tan.
I'd definitely recommend these for wearing day-to-day as much as for the bedroom. They're very comfortable, and at £2.99 not too expensive if you want to stock up with spare pairs.
Just make sure your garter belt is sturdier than mine is! The sliders on the straps kept slipping, so I may now be shopping for a stronger, six strap belt.
- Really comfy.
- Slightly the wrong shade for my skin.
- Bottom line
- I may be stocking-up on these!
