We see so much premier priced hosiery it is nice to sometimes look at stockings that are clearly intended for everyday wear. The stretch fibre mix suggests that these stockings borrow a lot from tights which we know Le Bourget excel at. The size chart certainly borrows from tights, based as it is on height and weight; there are 4 sizes to fit up to 6’1” 185cm and 184lb 83kg. As ever we would prefer stockings sized by shoe size and leg length!
Detailing is very simple: sheer shiny leg, reinforced toe, slight shaping at the heel, plain matt welt.
Sometimes simple is best. The plain top is perfect for taking a quality metal suspender clasp, the legs are incredibly smooth, soft and shiny and the whole design just works.
Without attempting to be sexy these stockings somehow manage to be very sexy indeed. If you happened to see the stockings tops you would feel you really should not be able to. These are stockings for ladies who wear stockings for themselves.
Sizing is not overly generous, but it is accurate and the fit is like a second skin.
The look on the leg may be too “tightslike” for some but we love them.
Not only the cheapest stockings we have seen for a while but the best too.
