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.

I think I need to be more vigilant regarding watches, and belt buckles. I actually had a pair snag on a belt buckle last week, it made me want to weep.

I must also be incredibly heavy handed as I couldn't make a pair of frequently worn fully fashioneds last a month if I tried! Not even with the special nylon stocking gloves I bought for rolling them on :-[ It's true that they don't actually run as easily, but they make up for it by being murder for snagging!

I like the Gio brand as well ,Cuban or point heel my favourite. I find Cuban heel always seems to sell out quickly though. Clearly all great minds think alike ;)

If only everybody could just ask for me to wear my fishnet Jasper Conran hold-ups. I would save a fortune, and halve my getting ready time!

I use to wear Primark stockings and holdups, but they used to have a very short lifespan on me. In the past couple of months I've discovred Pretty Polly Nylons range at BHS and am super-pleased with them. Not only they are hardwearing, but they have bigger sizes an look better. At 6-12 pounds a pair, thay're actually more economical than Primark due to lasting well longer, for me at least.

Has anyone noticed a real decline in the quality of M & S ladder resist hold ups lately? I keep having to use clear nail polish on little tears after one or so wears  :-\ they used to be brilliant. I’ve lost quite a bit of weight too so it’s not that.

Last bought stockings from there (or anywhere) March 2020 and they are still going strong! Have only worn a few times  :angel:

Usually I get from ann summers now though, I used to buy primark but they ladder easily and the band is too thick on the top so they keep coming undone from the suspender clip, the one from ann summers they stay clipped in all day.

Not strictly on topic, but this has reminded me of the shame of my first ever booking. (it's been enough time now that I can tell the story without completely dying)

It was an outcall, and I was wearing a basque and stockings to it, specially purchased from Primarni earlier that day. Getting ready, I put all the gear on, fastened the stockings at the front, and promptly found that I could not get them fastened at the back. If I stood up straight enough to get the dangly yoke to touch the stocking tops, then I couldn't get enough leverage with one hand behind my back to fasten it. If I bent over enough to be able to do the fastening with my hands, the strap wouldn't reach the stocking.

I had visions of having to cancel the booking, just because I couldn't put a pair of stockings on. I looked at all the sad, scraggy, not-purchased-today mismatched holdups mouldering away in the bottom of my underwear drawer, and knew they wouldn't cut it. I wondered if escorts were an exclusive breed of women who knew how to put stockings on, and as such I would never be admitted to the hallowed ranks.

I debated putting a post on here asking for advice, but figured surely to god I'd get banned as a troll. "Help, I can't put my stockings on for my first ever booking, can someone come round to my house and dress me"

So I was thrashing around on the bed, time ticking away from me, desperately trying to fasten them up, make-up sweating off my face, feeling terrible that I'd failed at the first hurdle, when suddenly it came to me.

Push. The. Fucking. Basque. Down. A. Bit.

That had me in stitches!
It costs a lot to look this cheap.

For any bigger girls stateside I swear by Hips & Curves; & with Thanksgiving/Black Friday coming up they’ll most likely be doing 1/2 off most of the site. I bought a an absolute shed load of stockings a few years back this way & have had good success with them.

Torrid is another 1 but their’s are thicker, not sheer, but I’ll tell you what; you ain’t ripping’em, that’s for damn sure.
