Let’s Talk Stockings

As the weather changes, so does going out with bare legs, well it does for me.  You may have seen my recent post on lingerie where I discussed vintage style shapewear. It goes hand in hand to now say Let’s Talk Stockings.

I know from experience that buying stockings on the high street can be very hard.  You can buy hold ups and knee highs, but stockings are a rarity.  Which is strange as vintage style lingerie is becoming more and more popular.  So finding a good retailer that stocks a variety of stockings is hard to find.

Uk Tights have one of the largest ranges of tights and stockings available on the internet, they are easy to navigate around the site to find what you are looking for.  The checkout is very easy and you are kept up to date with your purchase and delivery.

My Review

I was asked if I would like to review their range, and as you will already have seen I love vintage style lingerie, which does include wearing stockings.  Read on to see what I chose.

ultra sheer stockings

Cindy 10 Denier Ultra Sheer Stockings – £1.99

A great price and great quality, these are perfect when you want to wear something on your legs but keep them as natural as you can. Available only in one size but fitted perfectly for me and I have long legs.

backseam stockings

Dreamgirl Sheer Moulin Back Seam Stockings – £6.99

I got these in the nude colour, perfect fit and lasted more than one wear, which is a bonus for me, and they come in fuller figure sizes.

Fiore Edvige

Fiore Edvige 20 Stockings – £4.99

I love the Fiore range as you can see from these they have beautiful designs that give you something a little special to wear on those times where you can dress up a little more and a great price.

fiore marlena

Fiore Marlena 20 Stockings – £4.99

Another design from the Fiore range, this time still with backseam but plainer design.

Giulia Secret

Giulia Secret 20 Stockings – £6.99

Available in 2 sizes, these are a great fit and the detail at the top make them a little more special than plain banded stockings.


Trasparenze Jessy Backseam Stockings – £15.99

These are more expensive than my other choices. but you can not beat the classic colours of red and black and these have just that with the red banding at the top and a red backseam.

what katie did stockings

What Katie Did Seamed Stockings – £9.99

I love What Katie Did and have often found myself in their little shop in Portobello on trips to London.  There stockings are amazing great quality and fit.

My Conclusion

I do wear stockings so this was a great review for me to do.  The fit is a big thing for me, having long legs, I hate stockings that are short in the leg.  All the ones mentioned above fit great, and are a great quality.  Very happy and impressed with them all on wearing.

    I don’t actually buy stockings myself but I agree these don’t seem to be sold much in shops. You’ve made some great choices they do look nice.

      I used to be a hold ups girl but love the shapewear I wear with them as it helps hide my lumps and bumps

    nice stockings, I like the Trasparenze Jessy Backseam Stocking, it looks like you’re not wearing any stockings but theres a blueliner so it’s still noticeable anyway. but I love the transparency.

    These stockings look so good; I am loving the strap detail that holds them so well. When it gets cold, stockings are must haves. I should get a pair of the brown sheer ones. They would blend in so well with my skin.
