I Feel Pretty, Oh So Pretty

These are probably better on thinner thighs, which is a shame. I'm sure plus-sized folks would love an adorable pair of stockings with feminine details. The silicone helps them stay up, but isn't foolproof. Luckily, the floral band is compatible with garters.
Published:
Pros:
Silky, cute bow and lace, silicone to stay up, works with different heights, not actually hot pink
Cons:
Probably won't really stay up, causes muffin top, thin, not colored as pictured

extremely useful review
I thought these would go perfect with my Halloween costume but I wasn't sure about the bright pink, so I bought a backup pair just in case. Wouldn't you know I rather like them both?

These are a one-size-fits-most item, with no queen-size option. I always have a little trepidation with sizing like that, because I usually fall in the "just under plus size" range. It's highly annoying. These stockings fit, but they aren't amazingly flattering. I had no trouble pulling them up, and I tried to be careful not to snag them because they're so thin, but the wide lace band wanted to roll down my thighs. The top of the lace is scalloped, and it wanted to curl. I think a straight cut would have prevented this from happening.

This became problematic as I had to carefully pull them up to reach my garter belt straps and then carefully shimmy them back down so they sat at the more flattering height on my thighs. I have to wear them a little closer to my knees to prevent major muffin top. Unfortunately, the band likes to roll/curl down next to my inner thighs, and it just won't stay put. This seems to be an issue even with the thinner ladies because I see it in others' photos.

The good news is that the stretchiness means I can do the pull-and-shimmy method to wear these. This also means these stockings will also fit a wider range of heights. There's more good news, too! These aren't a stupid bright, hot pink. They're more subdued. In fact, they almost perfectly match my petticoat, which covers up the offending muffin top. If they hadn't, I would probably have sent them back.

The lace bands have two rows of silicone inside the floral cuff to help keep them up. This is dubious at best. I've had several types of thigh-highs with this "feature" and garters are almost always necessary. I've no doubt that this would be the case with these, but I planned to wear them with a garter belt anyway. The floral lace isn't so thick that I couldn't stick it through the plastic button tab on my garter straps. However, tugging did make a little hole, which says a lot about the quality of these.

I think the big selling point of these is the half-height seam that ends in the tiny bow in back. I'm pretty short, (5'2") so this wound up almost hitting my knee. It's lower if you're taller. This is super cute, and I shimmied the seam around a bit to get it straight. Unfortunately, I don't have eyes on the back of my head so I had to guesstimate, but I think it looks pretty good.




My flash made them appear a hotter pink than they really are. Don't believe it. Also, you can see my other leg is in a different stocking. I was doing a side-by-side comparison.

Because they're thin, beware of finger nails. I filed mine before putting these on just to be sure! I'd also recommend hand washing. At the very least, put them in a lingerie bag before tossing them in the laundry! I'm a little paranoid about the quality and how long these will last.

Still, I like them more than I anticipated, and now I don't know which thigh-highs to wear. I better get invited to another party!
Follow-up commentary
I'm so sad to have to write this. After wearing for a single night, one of the stockings got a horrible tear halfway up the back. I didn't catch on anything. I don't remember it happening at all. It basically runs right next to the cute seam. These looked adorable, but they just won't hold up.

The plastic tab of my garters also cause a small hole. If that was the only issue, I'd still wear them. Unfortunately, I had to toss them out.
