Hubby Always Did Like Cuban Things

Cuban heel stockings definitely aren't something you see every day, and that really is a shame. The design is unique and eye catching without being over the top and still being appropriate for almost all settings. This particular pair is comfortable to wear for extended periods of time and is sure to catch a lot of eyes.

extremely useful review
Packaging: The packaging was the pink striped variety on one side, and black on the other, and has a nice retro feel to it. Both the front and back have pictures of a model wearing these stockings, and the back also features sizing information and materials.

Sizing/Fit: These are another one size fits most item, which according to the packaging means 90-160 pounds. I'm about 120 and around the widest part of my thigh is about 21" and these did dig in a little bit. I have to wear them lower where my thighs are closer to 19 1/2" - 20" for them to be the most comfortable. Up higher, I found that they rolled a bit, but when worn a little lower and with a garter belt, there weren't any problems. My inseam is about 29" and I could get them about an inch or so from my bikini line.

Material/Care/Storage: These stockings are 85% Nylon and 15% Spandex and should be hand washed in warm water then drip dried. Don't iron or bleach. You could also probably get away with washing them on low in the washing machine and a lingerie bag, but you should probably avoid putting them in the dryer.

Design: These are Cuban heel stockings, which according to the definition means that they have a heel that is made with folded over and sewn reinforcement. Yeah, that confused me a little bit too. So if we start at the top, there's a 3" tall black nylon band. The top 2" of that is really what holds the stockings up, provided your legs are the right size. From there you have a visually prominent backseam that goes all the way down the back of the leg and starts tapering out into a triangle that meets the heel and continues down the formed foot. The toe and heel have a slightly thicker material for extra reinforcement, but the whole bottom of the formed foot up to about 2 1/2" above the heel is black.

Craftsmanship/Feel: I love the way these stockings feel. They're very silky, and could definitely be worn out like regular pantyhose. The nude color will hide things like small imperfections in skin, and will mute colors in tattoos. On most skin colors it'll be fairly obvious that you're wearing something, but it won't be quite as bad as say, the tights grandma used to make you wear to church. They feel a little more delicate than they probably are, but you should still avoid sharp jagged edges as much as you can.

Pictures: Here I'm showing you how they fit on my 20 1/2" thighs.

Experience
These are hands down some of the most comfortable stockings I've ever dealt with. I did have problems with them rolling on their own, but once they were in garter clips everything was fantastic. My husband has a thing about Cuba. I don't know why he's so obsessed with it, ok, he told me once but I'm horrible and forgot, or at least can't recall at this precise moment. I knew he wasn't going to get why I picked these stockings to wear, but once I told him he did appreciate it. He loved the vintage look to them, and I love how easily they can be paired with almost anything.
