 Good fitting stockings def help the confidence levels when at work/play.

Matalan do lace top stockings and hold ups in black or nude for just ?2 a pair. I get really good wear out of them.
I love the Ann summers ones with red or pink lace tops, but they are absolute rubbish quality and only last a couple of times - for about 8 squid aswell  >:(

Ann Summers have a deal on their stockings and hold ups (with some really nice designs too) where it's 3 for 2 at the moment at ?7 a pair so ?14 for 3 - they aren't the longest wearing stockings but I have a few pairs that I've had for a year now and they are still going strong!

I am a huge fan of Asda's stockings, I'm notorious for killing stockings but these are virtually indestructible!

and a pretty decent price.  :D

I used to be a fan of What Katie Did's seamed tulle stockings (?10 a pair).  They have a pretty lace top and because they're tulle  - like a very fine fishnet - they last ages (and they don't look trashy like normal fishnets. Not that there's anything wrong with trashy ;D).  My only complaint with them is that they're one-size-fits-all and they were a bit big for me.  Norah Batty style ain't too sexy!

I had the same problem with the WKD microtulle, they're ok on probably a 12 or a above, or 5'4'' or above but shorter or slimmer and you've got problems!
Falke do a hold-up version that is very similar for ?20, although you may need to look on ebay.  Comes in ivory and black.  Pricey, yes, but they last *much* longer than any other stockings I've worn

Also I find the Charnos Run Resist pretty hardy.  But in general I just bulk buy at house of fraser whenever stockings are on sale and see them as collateral damage!

I splashed out on a couple of pairs of Agent P stockings back in October, I used to pay ?8 a time for La Senza or Anne Summers but they never lasted more than a week a pair, these Agent P ones cost ?25 which seems ridiculous amount to spend on a pair of stockings but they  have lasted and lasted and lasted.
I estimate since October I probably would have gone through 16 pairs of ?8 stockings @ ?128 when 2 pairs of AP has cost only ?50.
False economy for me in this case to go for cheaper ones.

Thought about offering NURU Massage??

Am amazed you can all remember where you got your stockings from.  I had a fantastic pair that cost around ?15. They lasted for ages and I loved them, but whilst remembering  that I got them from John Lewis and they were reduced I have no idea what make they were.  If I knew I'd def buy them again.  I do know that I've had M&S and Aristoc stockings that were pretty good and that really cheap ones are a false economy.

One of the pairs I've got on the go now look and feel fine when I put them on but a few minutes into the booking one of them starts rolling down my leg. At the end of the booking I take them off and chuck them into the drawer and then can't remember which pair it was and put them on again for the next booking, only to realise when it's too late that they're making a dash from my knee. Of course I can't remember what make they are to avoid buying them again.

Primark hold ups are either a hit or miss. I have to pairs of the same stockings...same size, design etc and one pair rolls down...but the other pair I wore for 8 hours last night....and they didnt budge!!! Weird!

Yes Red I find exactly the same happens! Their hold ups can be fab. Then I had a whole run of one hold up 'going' right fom the word go, to the.point I gave up.on them for a while. Thought id give them one last chance, bought a couple of pairs, and they've been fine!

Stockings are the bane of my life.

They add a good 20 minutes to the getting ready time.
You spend ages rolling one on, fastening- then find out the matching one is laddered and have to fine 2 matching ones of a different pair.
They are uncomfortable to wear ( especially under a sexy pair of Jeans ) so I find myself constantly dressed in business-woman gear to match. Ok at midday at a Hotel booking, but a pain at 10pm on a home visit.

Though, even when I worked in a supermarket, I wore them in preference to tights!  ;D

That's the reason I always try and buy exactly the same kind - at least if you rip one you can still wear the other  ;D

I like the M&S run resist ones for day to day stuff as they're cheap and last OK, but I prefer to wear ff nylons for work as I find them a lot tougher and more comfortable too. I don't bother with them if I think they won't be noticed or appreciated though, hence always having the M&S ones kicking about. The worst ones I ever had were from Superdrug, although they were so cheap I probably deserved it.

That's really interesting Amy, as I'm finding the exact opposite with my ff stockings :( I don't seem to be able to get through even an hours booking without the client putting a snag in them! I'm getting quite a lot of men asking me to wear them since I featured some in my last photo shoot. My heart sinks every time I'm asked. They are so expensive, and it just isn't cost effective when they are getting ruined so quickly. Even the seconds you can buy aren't especially cheap.

So any tips as to how I can preserve them much appreciated. Or maybye I should just make sure I don't wear any in my next photo-shoot ;D Which would be a shame as they look so beautiful on. You can't beat a nice pair of fully fashioned stockings!

Well I buy seconds from Stockings HQ which are usually about half the normal price and I rarely pay more than a tenner a pair, which can last for months before they get too ratty and I have to dump them. The ones I get most often are Gios because they fit me well, and I also like the Eleganti ones.

I'm always aware of things like belt buckles and watch straps and I ask punters to remove them pretty much straight away no matter which stockings I'm wearing, but I don't have any magic tricks regarding the nylons - I just don't seem to snag them like I do the stretchy kind, and even when they do get a little pull they don't really run. The only thing I can think of is that I'm maybe unconsciously more careful with the nicer ones when it comes to putting them on? I like the Cuban ones  :D.
