What are these things trying to do?

As far as aesthetics go, these are quite nice. The materials are soft and durable, the lace isn't itchy, and your toes can't poke out of the bottom. However, they are very long. If you're not used to adjusting long stockings on short legs, you may have some difficulty. Please also measure where you intend to wear them on your thigh. If that area is significantly over 26 inches, the plus size will dig in and roll unattractively.

I purchased these stockings because I was desperate for something besides my current plain ol' nude stockings. While my nude ones are nice, they just aren't that sexy. These were the only pair of stockings in stock, in a larger size, at the time that I ordered them.

I opened the box once I got home. They came in the standard plain brown box, filled with paper to keep the item from shifting. There's nothing special about the packaging. It's pretty much your typical hosiery packaging: brand and size/style info on the front, product photo, window to see the stockings through, company slogan, photo, and size/style info on the back. If you are looking at the front, the packaging opens on the left side. The stockings are in a small plastic bag, with one stocking on the cardboard piece that both are wrapped around.

I pulled the stockings out of the packaging, and they feel quite nice. The fishnet feels quite soft yet durable. They did not snag despite being caught multiple times on a jagged fingernail. The lace feels nice and soft as well, though I did notice little fluffs of material coming off the tops after a bit. The seams are all quite sturdy on the toes, lace to fishnet, and back of the lace. I don't see fiber content or care instructions anywhere on the packaging. According to the product page, they are made of nylon and spandex. I would recommend washing them by hand, like how I wash all my hosiery, especially fishnet or lace. Then, allow them to drip dry.

The fit is interesting. The mesh is fine enough that you don't have to worry about toes sticking out. Yay for that! They fit just fine through the foot, ankle, calf, and knee. I have a size 8.5 US foot, 10 inch ankle, 20 inch calf, and 18 inch knee right where my leg bends. In these areas, there is plenty of room for a larger foot or leg. Past that, ugh. I have a 28 inch inseam, so I always have the problem of stockings being too long for me. I've become a professional at adjusting so they don't look weird. Basically, you just rub your hands all over your legs until the pattern looks even. These were the most comfortable when I wear them as over-the-knee stockings as opposed to thigh high stockings. I noticed that this is what the model on the packaging is doing as well. The largest portion of my thigh, that these fit without digging or the lace rolling, is 26". Any higher, both the lace and the seam joining the lace to the fishnet dig and hurt. Also, the lace is very difficult to keep laying flat. However, if I wear them where they're comfortable, they don't stay up when I walk or stand. Whereas they do keep themselves up if I let them dig in. However, this becomes uncomfortable very quickly due to the lace folding and rolling in on itself, putting more pressure where the seam digs.

I figured I'd try wearing them pulled all the way up. These go all the way to the very tops of my legs with some length to spare. I tried that with a garter belt, to see if that helped at all. It helped a teensy bit. The lace doesn't roll on itself as much, so it hurts a little less. Yet, there's still a good deal of dig-in and pain.

I'm not sure exactly what I'll do with these currently. Wearing them is too uncomfortable. I have the choice of let them sit in the "lingerie that will fit once I lose some weight" pile, or cut off the lace and wear them as raw-edged fishnets. I'm not sure how well they'll hold up without the lace, so I'll throw them into the goal pile for now.
Follow-up commentary
I ended up lending these to a friend with smaller legs and she enjoyed them quite a bit. She hasn't given them back yet, though. They weren't for me, but they worked for her.

    I am thinking of maybe investing in sock glue so they'll stay up where they fit. Could be worth it, especially for camming and making clips.
