Gave my thighs muffin tops!

Looking for something to add a little spice to a new outfit. The Sheer contrast cuban heel stockings are the perfect choice. The nude and black go perfectly together to add enough detailing without going over board.

Use
The Sheer contrast cuban heel stockings are great way to add a little excitement to a boring outfit. They are worn on the legs and can be worn with or without garters. They can be used for everyday use. Just throw them on under a skirt and mosey on into the office. Since they do have a vintage look I'm sure everyone will want to know where you got them. They are manufactured by Coquette but I have had no past experience with Coquette stockings or lingerie until now.

Material
The material that these stockings are made of are a guess for me. There is nothing mentioned on the packaging that notes what they are made from. I even went ahead and checked Coquette's website only to come up empty handed there too. I believe that these are actually made of 100% nylon. The nylon allows the material to be pretty stretchy which helps accommodate different sizes.

Design
These stockings are designed to have an old vintage feel to them. They are designed to look completely nude and sheer with a a dark black line that runs from the heel all the way to the top of the stockings. This line can be seen on the legs and actually creates a nice visual.

Not only do these stockings have the black line that runs the length of the back of the legs, they also have black nylon on the bottom of the feet to the top of the toes that somewhat works as reinforced toe and heel. The black nylon seems to be slightly stronger than the sheer nylon portion.

The stockings are topped of with a black band that runs the diameter of the top of the stockings that act as a band to hold them up. The band almost seems to have been folded over and sewn together to create a good band that will actually reinforce the nylons to the top of your thighs.

Sizing
The Sheer contrast cuban heel stockings are available in OS, which is one size fits most. By using Coquette's size chart they should run between sizes 4-14.
The nylon material does have some stretch which will allow someone with a larger size some room for adjustment. I do have to mention that these are made differently than normal pantyhose. They are made to taper in at different points in the leg. For example a typical pantyhose would be one size going the whole way up while these are not made that way. They are made with the definition already in them especially at the calf unlike their drug store counterparts.

Packaging and Storing
These are packaged by being wrapped around a piece of cardboard and then placed into a cardboard envelope. It is then put into a resealable clear plastic bag. While the packaging is small and convenient it would have been more helpful if it had included sizing and material information.
To store them I typically place them in a dresser drawer along with other stockings and lingerie I have. It is possible to store them in it's original packaging, it just may take a few extra moments to get them back in.

Care
To wash these stockings I would hand wash them in cooler water with a mild soap. I would lay these flat to dry because if you don't they may loose some of their shaping. Do not use bleach, a dryer or an iron as they may not be reusable afterwards.

Quality
These stockings seem to be of ok quality. I didn't find any hanging strings or tears. I did notice one little thing that has been driving me crazy since I noticed it. The black line that runs the length of the stockings actually doesn't completely line up with the top black band. They actually start about 1 centimeter below the thigh band. It isn't a big deal and can barely be seen when worn, just a slight peeve of mine!
Experience
While I really like the look of these stockings I thought that the sizing could have been a little better. They typically should be able to handle sizes 4-14 and I don't think it really does. I am larger in my mid section and thighs but I am still well in between the 4-14 sizing. The top thigh bands made me look like I had muffin tops while everything else fit perfectly. Since the thigh fitting was a little tight it made moving around in them difficult as the thigh band kept rolling down and I needed to continuously adjust it. Even wearing a garter did not help much as the thickness of the thigh bands make it a little difficult to even attach a garter. I love to wear stockings or pantyhose and wear them a lot for work. I typically will buy a queen size at the drug store so that I feel comfortable in them and maybe my past experience is making me feel as though these stockings were too small.
I have included my sizes as a comparison.
My Sizing
Thighs- 20"
Hips- 36"
Height- 5' 4"
Shoe- 8 women's
Follow-up commentary
I still find the design of the black stripe running the length of the backs of the legs extremely sexy but I did try to wear these a few times but often found myself frustrated with them and changed into something else. The large thigh band made it difficult to keep them up even with the assistance of garters. The thickness of the thigh band also made it difficult to attach many of the garters that I own.
