PostSubject: Stockings!   Mon Apr 09, 2012 1:17 am

So, I've always had a dilemma when it came to wearing socks, thigh highs and such...

Well, thigh high's don't fit me considering my curvy body, so I was wondering if anyone had any advice on what length of socks would look good on curvy legs, or should I just stick with black stockings?

Can't go wrong with full stockings~ Either solid opaque or translucent, doesn't matter as long as you don't go overboard with patterns. Smile

Personally for more curvy people, I really like the black stockings. I think thigh highs work as well but it really depends how far you wear it. But its all personal reference so whatever you feel looks good!

I agree that thigh highs also look best on curvy people. I have a more curvy figure, myself, and think thigh highs definitely compliment it the best! But I feel that I'm also biased towards thigh-highs because I highly prefer zettai ryouiki. (I order a shipment of socks every month. wwww) For those who don't want to wear thigh highs, stockings are usually the best alternative, but I suggest trying them both out!

Thigh Highs are cute! Though in my case I got more oomph in my legs (because I am also pretty curvy) so they dont stick well so I use sock glue to keep them up or you could invest in a garter belt

Though now there are places that have plus sized thigh highs so you dont have to resort to either one! There is a place on Haight Street in SF called New York Apparel its towards the end near amoeba records and they have a variety of stockings and thigh high socks at a low price! I seriously recommend it! The shop owners are super helpful too~ They have also a variety of sizes too.

Yeah, there is the issue of them rolling on curvier bodies. Garters definitely do help though. Always make sure to get specifically thigh-highs and not over-the-knee socks, since the latter usually is tighter and rolls even moreso... I usually try to manually stretch them out a little bit with my hands when they're new, though.

Piedmonts is ok but I dont trust their thigh-highs because its false packaging. I bought a pair but they turned out to be over the knee even though it stated on the packaging it was a thigh high and their material really doesnt stretch

Momo, if you do go to Haight, tell meeeeeee.
Cuz I live a few blocks down. :3
But I must warn you, the stockings and such are cheap, but some run small.
Theres a sock shop next door with plus size stockings and thigh highs.
And I'd also recommend old fashioned nylon thigh highs from Girdlebound.
They're sturdy mofos.
o:

Also, as far as garters go, I highly recommend Rago garters and girdles.
Then again, I'm an utter junkie for old fashioned lingerie, so its not for everyone.
BUT THE WAY THEY MANAGE DEM CURVES.

LADIES LADIES LADIES

I know this topic is old but I wanted to let you girls know that sockdreams has amazing socks!

I really recommend this gem right here esp for you curvy gals!

Extraordinarily longer thigh high

I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with these stockings! They aren't like nylon but they are opaque which is a nice bonus, but what I love about them is that they stay up without the use of a garter or sock glue! I tried them on and I fell in love and for the price its good quality plus free shipping! and its fast! It takes usually 3 or 4 days for it to get here!

I'm not sure if I'll be able to find a proper pair of knee-high socks at the mall, but as a back up, how's skin colored sheer pantyhose and http://www.sockdreams.com/products/lace-ruffle-anklets-with-bow?back=search?

I was talking about ankle socks before. In Japan a lot of girls wear ankle socks as much as knee socks right now, the frilly type and it looks absolutely adorable but its usually lighter colors, white lace or frill with brown or something socks.

Those are the shoes I'm wearing with my outfit.
I don't think sockdreams has a big variety of ankle socks with lace.
