Fell a Bit "Short"

If you're tall enough and proportioned properly, these are great! If you're short or a bit wider thigh'd then you're going to have issues with the fit of these.

extremely useful review
Stockings with an attached garter belt make life so much easier when traveling! Not to mention, not having to clip on any metal pieces means you don’t have to fool around as much with getting your garters on straight!
I’m not much for stockings in general, I’m a leggings or bare leg kinda girl and being plus size and extremely short, it’s generally hard for me to find stockings that fit. So I started buying everything Eden Fantasys had to offer in the way of plus sized stockings in hopes of finding something that worked for me.

There are some pros and some cons to these. As I mentioned, the design is extremely convenient. There are no metal pieces involved that will potentially tear your stockings while you’re trying to attach them and there is no trying to figure out where to play the garter so they sit properly.

Unfortunately, these garters also cannot be adjusted. They are the same length in the front and the back and if you are not proportioned exactly right for them, they are not going to work. You are actually better off being a bit too tall, at least they will tug a bit but stay up. I am 4’11” and about a size 20. These garters were simply too long for my extremely short legs. Once I got the stockings pulled up all the way, the garters were completely ineffective and just kinda hung there.

Also, for being plus sized, I was disappointed at how the tops of the stockings fit. If you have a bigger thigh, which most plus sized women do, this stocking will not want to sit properly with a lovely band of lace around your thigh. They will want to roll and especially if the garters are the wrong length for you, you won’t get any help with that issue.

There is a bit of good news. If you are of average height or taller, you’ll probably be fine. Also, the stockings themselves are nicely made and fairly sturdy. They don’t run terribly easily, I walked around in them barefoot a bit and even managed to catch them on something without them tearing.

However, I was not able to use the set as is. What I ended up doing was snipping the lace garters off and just used the stockings as regular stockings with regular garters. The lace belt and garters is also pretty sturdy, I ended up snipping off a bit of the lace to make them the right length for me and then attached them to a set of fishnets. I’m fairly crafty and don’t like to let things go to waste. I’m also horrible about getting around to returning things so I’m far more likely to alter or repurpose items than to send them back.

If you aren’t into futzing around with things until they work for you, and you aren’t of more average measurements, I would strongly suggest skipping these and going for a more classic garter and stocking set up.
Follow-up commentary
Not much to report. These are still going strong and stand up well to washing! They are a good staple in my kinky/sexy wardrobe.

    So, they aren't detachable from the garter. Hm...

    I'm not liking that they aren't detachable or adjustable. I'm pretty crafty and I'm sure I could adjust it myself with my sewing skills, but I don't want to have to put in the effort. Maybe something else for me. :/
