Better Than Your Average Fishnet

I like these better than the thigh highs that came with the industrial net cami garter set I purchased a few months back. The top of the thigh high is great for a variety of leg types, except for queen sizes.

useful review
When I first received these thigh highs from Leg Avenue, I gave them zero benefit of the doubt. I'm pretty picky about my fishnet and I bought them to match an industrial net outfit that I adore. Luckily, because both the outfit and thigh highs are made by the same company, the black of the fishnets matched the industrial net nicely.

These are super stretchy and can fit a variety of leg types because there isn't a "topper" or band to attach to a garter clip. The seams on the toe portion of the garment are sewn pretty well and held up quite nicely when I tugged on them to see how far they'd stretch. I wear a size 5.5 (US) shoe and I was happy to see there wasn't any extra material on either side of my foot, but I knew they'd still stretch a bit when my foot flattened out while walking.

It seems odd but, while just fiddling around the house the thigh highs actually kept my legs a little bit warmer than a standard pair of nylon pantyhose would. Since I stay cold all of the time, that's a plus for me.

The amount of exposed skin is going to vary depending on the thickness of your legs. Because I have what my husband refers to as "chicken legs", the netting doesn't stretch very much on my legs. It still looks really sexy, though.

I found that paired with the industrial net garter-style cami, the thigh highs began to stretch upwards and would then sag when I sat back down. This is problematic and takes away from the visual just a little bit.

On the first wash, there was a bit of a bleed from the fabric. A cup of vinegar solves that issue quite well. These need to be handwashed, without bleach and line dried. Store as you would any other pieces of hosiery.
Follow-up commentary
I never wear these because of how they slouch on my legs. They're just taking up space in the drawer. I have no idea what they'll be turned into but I'm sure I can think of something.
