stockings
« on: 08 January 2012, 01:08:26 am »
Evening ladies!

Anyone got any suggestions for some hardwearing stockings? Ive gone through sooooo many in the past few months, ive tried the M&s ladder resist, regular ones, la senza ones, primark ones...

im really careful putting them on and taking them off, i just keep finding snags and ladders all over them. my last pair  got caught on my dress and i had a huge hole in them :( luckily it was a reg client with a sense of humor, he saw the funny side of it!

just need a stash of stockings that i can wear more than once.

I'm a fan of the M&S ladder resist ones, though you said you've tried them.  At ?4-ish a pop I'm pleased with how long they last.

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

Ooh good tip I will try Asda, I have been looking to move over from Primark, which used to last me really well until relatively recently - strangely one of the pair would just 'go' at the top.  It has also been since I lost weight but surely my legs are even in terms of thinness!

Tesco stockings good, especially for larger ladies.
I'm glad I got all the Cynthia Payne books before the prices rocked to sky high.

 I'm glad this thread has started as it's been pissing me off for months trying to find a pair of stockings that will last and also fit.
 I have big thighs, even when I am slimmer I have really curvy thighs and find that 'one size fits all' etc stockings just don't.
 They pull up just over my knee and stop. If I really heave them up then they sit a tad higher with an ugly thigh muffin top!
 It's not a sexy look!!
 Where can I get stockings for bigger thighs????

Thank god for this thread!

I use Ann Summers, and they're usually alright until you've worn them twice, or put them in the washing machine  ::) La Senza are alright, but to be honest, I don't think stockings are meant to last forever. Whoever makes them, seems to want them flimsy and easily-laddered. And so the search goes on... ::)

oooh ann summers, la senza, I feel a stocking shopping spreee coming on!

I always handwash mine, gives them a slightly longer life, I really only expect them to last maybe 2/3 times at most depending on how energetic the bookings are too  :)

I pretty much only wear fishnets, which are tougher. I use Ann Summers ones and usually get a lot of wear out of them unless I snag them on my boot buckles or something (which NO stockings are going to survive!).

I like Charnos 24 7 but I have a habit of catching my legs on a chair that has a velcro fastening on it - which ruins them.

Where can I get stockings for bigger thighs????

I'm fairly tall and definitely have curves so I always go for bigger stockings to make sure my legs aren't squidged!

There's a whole article on the main site called "Useful Links" which has a few handy links for shopping including one to StockingsHQ, which is where I buy a lot of my stockings and holdups. I always go for properly sized holdups so that I can choose the right size to fit me properly. 'One size' things only fit about three people in the world!

I second StockingsHQ - I have bought from there before when (I think) Amy recommended them and the delivery is quick, there are all price ranges and sizes, and I still have my opaque stockings intact 2 years later! x

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.

I have this problem too, after trying hundreds of stockings over the years, and wasting lots of money, I  have found my faves... Jasper conran deep lace top hold ups (micro fishnets) from debenhams. They are about ?8 when not in the sale. But they last forever, don't give ,e thigh muffin top and I feel good in them, which is important to me for confidence in a booking! X
