Breaking Out the Pumice Stone

Great for a few uses, and the material feels amazing against my skin. These thigh highs are designed to be sexy, not durable. If you want something that will hold up better, I suggest looking into the opaque thigh highs offered on Eden.

extremely useful review
The sheer white thigh highs from Leg Avenue arrived in a standard package for pantyhose with a piece of cardboard tucked inside one of them to keep the package flat and to show the color and thickness of the fabric.

These thigh highs are very, very sheer. If you have any sort of roughness on the bottom of your feet or on the heel area of the foot, you'll more than likely end up with snags in the nylon threads. I have only worn them on one or two occasions and they're already pretty marked up with snags and I can see a run coming on in the very near future.

The top of the thigh high is stretches nicely to fit my thighs without creating that unsightly bulge at the top and I didn't have any problems keeping them up without a garter belt so long as I didn't move around a whole lot. If you're planning on using these to doll up a sexy outfit for a night on the town, definitely invest in a garter belt if you don't already have one. It's pretty embarrassing to be talking to someone and all of a sudden your sexy secret is around your ankles.

I'm no expert on lingerie sizing, but I would think these would fit someone up to 116 pounds with an average leg length. My legs are approximately 36 inches in length, from the tip of my big toe to the bottom of my hip. I found that I could still pull them up to the bottom of my hip, very top of my thigh without any difficulty.

The material feels incredibly silky and smooth against my skin and I found myself absentmindedly rubbing my legs when I began to daydream while wearing them. If you're of the understanding that nylons rip and tear with great ease and the feeling of the fabric and the overall look is more important than how often you'll have to replace them, then these will be a hit with you for sure.

I tend to buy things that are durable and easy to care for, but overall I'm not entirely disappointed with this purchase. I just wanted to get a few more uses out of them before I had to toss them out. They aren't completely ruined but I only see one or two uses left before I catch a hangnail or clip the side of something creating a run or an outright tear in the material.

They are easy to care for, though they do pick up traces of normal household dirt quite easily. If the insides of your shoes are black, there is a small possibility that this will discolor the toe, foot and heel of the garment. These have to be handwashed without bleach in a mild detergent and line dried or laid flat to dry. To store you can roll them into a ball, toss them in the sock divider and go about your way or do what I do: toss them on top of the rest of your lingerie and close the drawer.
Follow-up commentary
After about the fourth or fifth time I wore these, they developed a huge run up the backside. It's a shame that something that felt so silky and smooth was so delicate.
