What You Need to Know About Thigh High Stockings

Whether you want to provide extra warmth to your legs or you just want to show off your gams, hosiery is a must-have for today's fashionable and stylish woman. There are various types of hosiery, and among the most popular are thigh high stockings. With so many colors, fabrics, and styles available, it is easy to get confused with all the choices in the market.

Do you know what kind is the right one for you? Read on to learn more about the different types of thigh high stockings.

Thigh High Stockings

Thigh high stockings provide coverage from your toes to your thighs. Wear this with an outfit that exposes your thighs and you are sure to feel sexy and seductive. An elastic band at the top part secures it to prevent the stocking from falling. You can also choose to wear them with a garter belt or suspender so you are extra sure that they won't fall down.

Thigh high stockings also come in various designs. These include lace tops, fishnets, knee socks, opaque stockings, printed stockings, and more.

Fishnet Stockings

Fishnet stockings have a diamond-shaped knit detail. They are extra flattering to the legs, because they accentuate the curves and make it more defined. In fact, wearing fishnets is one of fashion's hottest trends. Even if they are more popularly worn by punks or Goths, women love fishnet stockings because they give any outfit that extra oomph.

Opaque Stockings

Opaque stockings are practical to use because of their solid color, which you can then use to mix and match with your outfits. In fact, you can literally go wild with all the choices. There's some for the femme fatale, the punk rocker, and even the quirky artsy look. Think leopard print, polka dots, hearts, stripes, and even skull bones. For those who want plain solids, there's something for them, too.

Lace Top Stockings

Lace top stockings have a decorative lace top, just like its name suggests. All the intricate lacy detail will certainly make you feel sexy and maybe even a little naughty as it emphasizes your upper thigh. As with anything, a more expensive brand will guarantee better quality lace detail at the top. Most people usually buy this for romantic dates with their significant others.

Thigh High Stockings Are Not For Every Occasion

Keep in mind, however, that thigh high stockings are not for everyone. For starters, if you are going to use this in your office, you might as well go for pantyhose as it clings to the body like a like a second skin, and does not slip like thigh high stockings. Obviously, when you are at work or in an important business meeting, you cannot continuously adjust your stockings in front of your boss or your client. It is not only inconvenient, but very embarrassing.
