A lingerie drawer must-have!

Classic. Sexy. Sophisticated. Alluring. Those are all of the things you can be when you own these stockings. No lingerie drawer is complete without some classic black thigh-highs, and these are totally worth the small price. Whether in or out of the bedroom, you'll be irresistable in these sexy stockings.

Summary

Who can't appreciate the classic beauty of sheer, black thigh highs? They should be a staple in every woman's wardobe because they're classy, sexy, and look good on pretty much everyone. They can be worn in and out of the bedroom. You can pair them with your little black dress, business attire, or with that sexy little get-up you have for sexy time. No lingiere collection is complete without a pair of these.

Design/Material

A little story: I had bought Leg Avenue's Backseam Thigh Highs before I bought these and I was highly disappointed with them. They were horrible quality. The material was way thin and they made my legs look like I had weird shadows on them. The band at the top was horrible loose while all the other Leg Avenue stockings I had purchased fit me. I hated them and felt they weren't even worth the price. I didn't give up, though. I purchased these hoping there would be some difference in the quality, and there certainly was.

These are your typical sheer black thigh highs. The band at the top is about 2" wide, and there is a slightly more sheer part of the band after this that's about 1/2" wide. (That part makes them super sexy.)
The band isn't too tight or restricting, and stretches to fit a wide range of leg sizes without cutting in or rolling too much. My legs are on the slimmer end of the spectrum and these stayed up pretty well.

The material is thankfully thicker than the stockings with a backseam. It it delicate, but the material is very smooth and even looking when the stockings are worn (unlike the other pair). I didn't notice any flaws in the material like I did with the backseam one (which looked like it had runs in it out of the package). Even though the material is slightly thick, it's very sheer. I really like the way these looked on my legs. It was more of a subtle look than an obvious one. With that said, these aren't the smoothest stockings on the market, but they're certainly worth the small price, or even double that.

The toe on these stockings isn't truly reinforced, but it is a bit darker than the rest of the stocking, making it seem like it may be. I personally think this is more for the design than it is for function. It looks nice, and it's not too obvious of a change in color. It might stand out if you're wearing super open-toed shoes, but if you're wearing peep-toe or sandals, it might not be too much of an issue.

Wearability/Durability

These stockings are really comfortable. The way they hug my legs is something I really appreciate. The band, while it doesn't totally stay up on my legs if I'm doing a lot of walking around (because I've got skinny little legs) is more comfortable than the bands of fishnets, and I didn't find it to be too restricting. If you have thicker legs, these should also be pretty comfortable because they stretch without being too stretchy, and the band is wide enough that it would cut into your leg. These also seem like they wouldn't roll on someone with larger legs, but I can't personally speak on that. These will also work with a garterbelt and would look super hot with one.

The nylon material is delicate, and it's only natural that you may get a run or two on it. I've had stockings that seem like they're run any time I breathe on them, but these aren't like that. I haven't had a problem with them at all even though I'm hell on stockings, and I didn't store them in the best possible manner. With that being said, if these ever do run, they can easily be replaced for a few dollars, so it's not really that big of a deal.
Experience
Sizing

My thighs are a tiny 17.5"-18" around and I've got the legs of someone who is 5'2. Because of this, I have a lot of issues with stockings coming up to my butt and then falling right down. With these, they're a slight bit loose, but not so loose that they're unwearable or can't be fixed with a garterbelt. Because of this, they'd work best for someone with 19"-22" thighs. They also didn't come up super high on me like the others, so I'd suggest these for someone who is 5'2-5'9.

Care

As with all stockings, be gentle when you wash these. They should be hand-washed in cool to warm water with only a slight bit of soap and then left to air dry in a warm area. Don't put them in the washer or dryer. When you store them, make sure you keep them in a place where they won't snag on anything. I use a hanger with clothes pins for my stockings. Others use lingerie bags.
Follow-up commentary
Even though lots of the lingerie I buy comes with stockings I always prefer these. They're such better than the others because they don't run if you breathe on them wrong, much smoother, and just look a lot better. I'm thinking of buying a few more pairs to keep around in the event that these have some sort of accident.
