Unique, stylish, but best of all, they don't roll up!

If you have ever had trouble getting your thigh highs to stay up without rolling, and don't mind a slightly goth-y/costume-y look, then these are the product for you.

These are definitely a unique item. I'm a fan off hosiery of all types, as well as a fan of 'gothic' style clothing. So these caught my eye. I already had a dark "lolita" type skirt and black vinyl corset that I knew they'd pair well with.

They arrived in my mailbox in a white padded envelope, the standard EdenFantasys packaging, bearing the "Web Merchants" return address. Perfectly discreet. Inside, the stockings were packaged in a plastic cellophane sleeve. The stockings themselves were folded around a rectangular piece of white cardstock, wrapped crosswise with another card, with the pink-striped Leg Avenue logo, and the same photo on the product page. The same Leg Avenue packaging you'd find these in in a retail store.

Upon opening the package, I did notice a slight vinyl smell, but it wasn't bad, and some might find it pleasing. Being a "one-size" item, I was worried they might not fit. I have thick, muscular legs, and sometimes have problems getting hosiery (especially thigh highs) to fit right. But I was worried for nothing. The vinyl tops have a bit of stretched. Once I got them on and pulled them up as high as I wanted, they did "muffin top" my thighs a bit. Measuring my leg at that point puts them at a 21 inch circumference, fitting snug. Pushing them down a bit to where my legs were only 20 inches around relieved the muffin-topping. So to make a long-story short, if your legs are more than 21 inches or so around, these may be too small.

My favorite part about these is that they stayed up. The bulk of my legs usually tends to push stockings down and make them roll at the top. I also own the Leg Avenue Industrial net thigh highs, and I almost never wear them, because no matter what I do, they immediately roll down to right above my knees and stay there. It just doesn't look good. Not the case with these. These stay up right where they belong.

The material on these is almost more of a mesh than a net. The diamonds are about a third of an inch across each, with a tiny bit of thicker line on the sides of the diamonds. This is preferable to me, and sturdier, than 'string' type fishnets. The tops are a single piece of vinyl, folded over at the top. There is a single seam running down one side of the vinyl top.

All in all, these seem like a nice product. They're a unique style, and definitely have a certain "look" about them. They won't go with all your lingerie, but they'll pair great with anything 'dark', vampy, or gothic. I must say that I had visions of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" while wearing them. Which was amusing to me. I could certainly see myself working these into a halloween costume.

    Thanks for sharing. Your review pretty much confirmed my worries that my thighs may be just a smidge too big for these.

    Thanks for a great review! I like the look of these and it's GREAT to know that they actually stay up (my wife's pet peeve with almost every pair of stockings she's ever owned).
