Not fun, not sexy, not comfortable and not worth it!!!

For less than $7.00 I learned that neither Hubby or I like fishnets and that Hubby likes take out Asian food more than sex (at least when he is hungry). I'm still not sure how I feel about garterbelts, but I am willing to give the real thing a try some other time.

extremely useful review
These "fishnet garterbelt stockings plus size" arrive draped over a thin piece of cardboard in a clear plastic bag with a label inside identifying them as being manufactured by "Leg Avenue". I have several pieces from Leg Avenue and have been pleased with the quality products they deliver at reasonable prices. What attracted me to this garterbelt/stocking was the price. I thought of them as a "trial size" to test the waters and see if my husband and I found them fun and sexy without breaking the bank. Rating them on this criteria alone, they are a 5 star hit. BUT, that would be unfair to consumers reading this review. It was a surprised to discover that the garterbelt, straps and stockings are all one piece. Personally, part of what attracts me to the garterbelt/sexy thigh high is the way the stockings are hooked up to the garterbelt. The picture in my head was of me teasingly pulling on the stockings and playfully attaching them to the straps while my eyes lock with hubby's. Not gonna happen here folks. I went to EF to check the description and found it to be vague. The information is not explicit enough to realize this detail before purchasing the garterbelt/strap/stocking combination. I felt mislead. The material is nylon and should be hand washed with mild soap/water and lay flat to dry. No washing machine---no dryer. I did put them in a delicates bag and in the washer (no bleach). I would not put them in a hot dryer---nylon does not do well at high temps, so no ironing either.

On to plan B. I decided I should dress for sexual success in private, do a little strip, and surprise Hubby. I had to dress before Hubby arrived home. I picked out a sexy nighty to hide the top of the stockings and then started to put on the stockings. I forgot that I had to step through the garterbelt and then the stockings. I had to start over and take a moment to plan this out in the correct order. The garterbelt is rather bland lace--stretchy and thin--very machine made looking. Put all thoughts of delicate French lace out of your mind. I am a lover of all things lace, but this is not intricately woven lace---it is flimsy, nylon and machine made---but for $6.99, what did I expect? OK---I accepted that and continued to slip my feet into the fishnets. My toes kept poking through the tiny open pattern of the stockings (they call them "fishnet" for a reason). DUH!!! It was more work than ordinary pantyhose, but for practical purposes, that is how you put these on---nothing sexy about pantyhose, now is there? I did not like the flatness of the straps and hose as they attached to one another--no adjustment possible, but this was a trial pair so I got passed that and pushed forward. I got into my sexy nighty and waited (and waited... I forgot to tell you that in the middle of undressing/dressing Hubby had called to say he was picking up take-out). After awhile, the garage door went up and I knew Hubby (and dinner) was home. Hubby was surprised that I was ready for bed (DUH....). He wanted to eat while the food was hot (I know, right?). After dinner, we went to the couch to watch TV---(I still know...major bummer). I was all over my husband. He got the idea (ya would 'av thunk... but he can be slow). He reached behind to pull me close for one of those intimate, deep and passionate kisses. His hand grazed across my legs, covered with the fishnet stockings and things came to a screeching stop. "WTF is that?". Hubby did not like the feel of the raised pattern on the stockings. I moved his hands to my back. I quickly came up with backup plan C.

Once I was able to separate from Hubby (it was a hot kiss... or 2... OK---maybe 3 or 4---who counts anyway?) I stood up, backed away from the couch and started my tease. All was going well, Hubby seemed to be enjoying the show (and so was I as I saw what was happening to my husband...). As I started to pull up my nighty, it hit me: how was I supposed to take off these "pantyhose" in the way I imagined? How could I remove the stockings and toss them to my husband? The short answer is: I couldn't. I danced around awhile, showed off my garterbelt and let my husband take over from there.
Experience
I ended up wearing the fishnet "pantyhose" (with open crotch) until the next morning. The pantyhose, as I now refer to them, turned out to be OK to sleep in, but in the morning when I took them off, the fishnet pattern had left marks on most of my thigh. It was kind of like when you get the marks on your side from crumpled up sheets. I asked Hubby if he thought the garterbelt was sexy and he said he didn't notice (DUH...NOTE TO MEN: NEVER SAY THAT TO YOUR WOMAN!!), but he definitely didn't like the feel or look of the fishnets (probably just a personal preference and no reflection on the stocking part of this garment).


One note about size: These pantyhose are a one size fits most---which I take to mean pretty much a size 6/8 to a 22/24, or at least to a 16/18. These are all pretty common sizes and should be included in a one sized item. I do not expect it to fit women on the far ends of the sizing spectrum. I am a 12/14 and I had the garterbelt pretty much stretched to the max. While I was awake and moving around, the stockings bunched a tiny bit on the front of my foot/ankle. I think either the stockings are too long or the straps are too long. I suppose I could shorten the straps, but that would leave a noticeable seam. While I was sitting (an during sleep) the garter belt rolled (I am certainly not hard and flat). It did not look very nice hidden in my pudginess.
Follow-up commentary
Not much to say. I wore these a few more times "just because" and I kept hoping they would rip so I wouldn't feel bad throwing them out, but in the trash they went anyway!

    My partner would most likely react the same way to the pattern/texture so these would probably best be passed up for me. Lol...
