When Lidia of Sweet Pins boutique contacted me about reviewing their new seamed stockings, I knew that the answer was, ‘Absolutely.’ Stockings with a tiny bow right below the welt? It’s like she read my mind. The second I put them on and rolled them up my leg, I felt transformed into a film noir detective, ready to take on the world (you may sense a theme to the photographs).
Then I got the opportunity to try them and I liked them so much that I knew it would be selfish to keep this cuteness all to myself. So, if you stick around to the end of this review, you’ll discover how YOU can win two sets of your own stockings.
One thing I should mention is that these stockings are not traditional fully-fashioned stockings– they do included stretch. Some people are pure traditionalist in this area and that’s great, but I personally much, much prefer to wear stockings that contain stretch and that I can wear around all day with perfect comfort.
Honestly, these are some of the most perfect stockings I’ve owned. There is just the right amount of stretch in them to keep them hugging the leg and the design detail of the seam and bow are delightful. I wore them around for a whole evening with 6-strap suspender belt from StockingsHQ (which I will be reviewing for you soon) and I didn’t have to think about or adjust them once.
I tried both the black and the beige colors of the stockings and they were both lovely. I wore the smallest size, 1/2, which makes sense because I’m relatively short (5’3″). They have two other sizes, 3/4, which is tall/extra tall and 5, which is specifically for plus size women.
