Leg Avenue Cuban Heel Thigh High

I have a bit of a stocking fetish, I love vintage stockings and go out of my way to find the fully fashioned styles I adore. I love getting gussied up in my garter belts and stockings and raising a little hell. All that being said, I'm brought nearly to tears every time I get a runner in one of my vintage pairs, which with the current trend of stockings and garters being in fashion again, they're becoming harder to track down. So you can understand my absolute joy when I found out Leg Avenue makes an inexpensive pair of thigh highs which give the great vintage, if not authentic look, for under $10.

The stockings themselves are a creamy nude in what I guess could be compared to a denier 12 nylon(i.e. lightweight very sheer) with a black foot, pointed “cuban” heel leading up to the back seam and black thigh band. The heel and toe are re-enforced which adds to the durability. These do not have the keyhole welt that fully fashioned stockings have, in fact the seam along the back isn't really a seam but a stripe woven up along the back. They're made of a durable nylon spandex blend and will accommodate a wide variety of leg sizes. The extremely petite will likely find them baggy and the very curvy will likely find them snug. I find all the Leg Avenue thigh-highs to run a bit on the long side, but I'm a wee 4'11 and the tops nearly touch my crotch. Toe to top un-stretched these measure 27 inches un-stretched circumference of the thigh is 12 inches. For reference on my leg toe to top they measure 33 inches with the thigh band stretching to accommodate my rather ample 22 inch circumference thighs*edited to note the thigh measurement was at my meatiest part the length was toe to top of the stocking which ended pretty much at my butt*. These have survived 3 karaoke nights and a rockabilly rumble before they developed a run or snag. Since they have elastic woven into the top they CAN stay up on their own, but as they lack the silicone "stay up" strip I'd recommend you wear a garter belt if you plan on walking around at all...hell wear it anyway it looks dead sexy.

The stockings are easy to care for, hand wash in a mild detergent or shove them in a lingerie bag and machine wash on gentle. Please allow these to air dry as the dryer will warp them. They're pretty resilient and would probably survive the dryer on low, but I didn't want to chance it.

I'd wholeheartedly recommend these to anyone wanting to add a little sass to their bedroom wardrobe, everyday wear, or hell even office attire. The length would make them suitable for the men folk who indulge in a little dress up as well as you tall goddess like women(who forever have my not really heartfelt contempt). They're priced inexpensively enough that you won't break the bank and if you trash them, say in a mosh pit or slipping on ice while drunk and sliding down a sidewalk on your hind end (ahem), it's not a total tear-filled loss.
Follow-up commentary
I've gone through several pairs of these thigh-highs(what can i say i'm hosiery's worst nightmare) They're still a fave of mine!

    From a guy's point of view, I don't like the black heel and seem contrasting with the white stocking. Sorry, young ladies!!!
