So many options for these affordable adorable stockings

I love these. When they are back in stock I will probably buy a second pair. I will even wear them when I don't plan on showing them off. I would feel sexy wearing these under jeans. Lauren pointed out in her review that they also work well as knee highs and even socks. I folded the top down and they were cute socks. I positioned them as knee highs and let them scrunch a bit. I love these even more then I had expected to.
Published:
Pros:
Can be worn as thigh highs or as stockings with a garter belt. Ribbon is optional.

extremely useful review
I love fishnet. I love black. I especially love anything crocheted. This is my first crocheted item my lingerie drawer! They are not actually fishnet. The crocheted pattern is actually a nice change from my predictable fishnet.

There has been a garterbelt sitting in a drawer waiting to be paired with a set of stockings. I had a hard time differentiating product descriptions for stockings as opposed to thigh highs. I find the old fashioned original type of stockings to be unsightly in the way they droop at the top. The old fashioned look of a garter belt I love. I think a traditional thigh high with the rubber backing would be to rigid to hook through the garter belt fasteners. I ended up doing extensive comparative shopping and took a chance on these.

The product name uses the term "stockings"; while the product description refers to them as "spandex thigh highs". I'm excited to say they work as either. I had no problems wearing them with the garterbelt. They also stayed up well on their own. The fabric in no way feels or looks like spandex except for the stretchability for the right fit. The band at the top is similar to a wide sock band. I found it to be very comfortable and prefer it to the feel of traditional thigh highs.

The ribbon is purely decorative. It can be removed by simply taking it out, no stitching involved. I found this to be a nice option because I'm not usually the ribbon and bows type. The ribbon comes looped around the thigh at the top through the crocheted pattern just below the band. It is simply ran through one hole around to the other side through another hole, and tied into a bow. I experimented with taking the ribbon and weaving it in and out of the holes around the top and liked the way this looked much better. The contrast of the red ribbon with the black stockings would be great for Valentine's Day.

The thickness of the fabric of these stockings reminds me of tights, but with a sexy see through pattern. These are only available in one size and the package states 90-160 pounds. I am on the low end of that range. I was happy they did not sag at all and did not fall down even without the garterbelt. The toes have a seam on the inside. I was able to wear them with open toed shoes without the seam showing. I love the way they fit at the toes. I have found that with many fishnets there is an issue of toes escaping the weave. These crocheted stocking kept my toes in check.
Experience
They are cute! I am learning that cute can be sexy. I think I will keep the bow. I might even try out some different colored ribbons. Eek, that almost sounds like crafting. Cute and crafty? These have expanded my horizons.

I did wear them with red crotchless panties to sleaze it up a bit.
Follow-up commentary
These are my substitute for thermal underwear. Okay, maybe they aren't as effective. They do feel sexy and keep me a bit warmer under my jeans. I need that extra layer these days.

I have forgone the ribbon. I do still have the ribbons in my lingerie drawer just in case. The ribbon is just a bit to fussy for my taste. I like the simple, sexy, crocheted fishnet.

Because they are crocheted they are holding up really well. Stockings and thigh highs don't usually last me very long. These don't show any signs of wearing out yet.
