Laura’s choice – thigh’s the limit

As pretty as they are practical, it’s no wonder why stockings and hold ups have been a household favourite throughout the decades. Synonymous with old fashioned glamour and recognisable symbols of seduction, both styles have dressed legs for as long as our grandmothers can remember. Taking centre stage after the invention of nifty nylon, women were rarely seen without a pair on. Originally created for ‘the women who don’t want to wear trousers’, it  seems that the thigh high hosiery has now made it into the drawers of most, establishing themselves as a chic and everyday alternative to sheers & opaques.

Wolford Individual 10 Stockings

From patterned to plain, high drama to barely there, there’s a pair of stockings or hold ups for just about every occasion. Admittedly I tend to rely on tights for my journey to and from work on my bike (however I have mastered the tricky combination of heels and cycling!), but that’s not to say I haven’t picked up a few hints & tips along the way.

Not just for Valentine’s Day, stockings have fast become a work wear staple, offering complete freedom of movement despite that  hectic schedule. A rare memento of a glamorous time gone by, it is often said that stockings are the easiest way to inject a little playful fun into an otherwise understated outfit. Of course decision making is hindered by the fact that suspender belts now come in every colour imaginable, but when it comes to stockings, the classic vs contemporary divide makes life a little easier. If you consider Kate Middleton and Angelina Jolie your style saviours (sweeping Jolie’s blood pendant phase under the rug), then it’s clear that you’re an enthusiast of all things elegant. Well versed in everything that’s sophisticated, Wolford have perfected the classic stocking style, keeping aesthetics simple and fabrics luxurious. A shining example of everyday hosiery done well, the Individual 10 Stockings are just crying out to be worn underneath pencil skirts and shift dresses. Made in two versatile shades, these are guaranteed to last you throughout the year, adding a touch of effortless chic with every step.

And from the demure to the daring….If you adore a more risqué style and are no stranger to experimenting with your hosiery, then it seems that the Jive Seamed Stockings from Pamela Mann are for you. Packed full of flirty retro charm and a flattering backseam, the sheer stockings are the ultimate finishing touches for that tea dress, with enough colour options to your wardrobe happy. For the adventurous, the postbox red is perfect for clocking up second glances, aching to be teamed with polka dots and peep toes.Oroblu Bas Chic Up 15 Hold Ups

For those that are not a fan of fiddly belts and straps, the solution lies with hold ups. Not worlds apart from stockings, hold ups still climb thigh high but instead of detachable straps, grippy bands of silicone are neatly tucked away inside the tops. Avid readers of Laura’s Choice will not be surprised to learn that the Falke Shelina Hold Ups come out on top when it comes to my favoured hold ups. As the younger sister of the popular (and my favourite) Shelina Tights, the hold ups certainly do not disappoint. Created from the same elastic free fabric and delivering the same barely there look, the lightweight hold ups are a must have for those wanting to fake that sun kissed look. With no need for your passport, you can cheat your way to that Monte Carlo glow in seconds. And with five dermatologically tested shades to choose from, no legs shall be left behind! Just as good and available in a colour for every day of the week, the Oroblu Bas Chic Up 15 Hold Ups are perfect for both work and play. With seven different shades to treat your legs to, getting dressed in the morning has never been so simple. Made from a lightweight 15 denier, you’ll discover that just about every occasion and social engagement has been covered. Looking to stock up on autumnal colours now? Go for the warm brown or flattering navy. Want to fake an even and blemish free skin tone? Experiment with the nude tones available to discover the perfect match.

Preparing for your wedding this summer? Avoid forgetting your bridal hosiery and make sure that the Athena Bridal Hold Ups from Trasparenze are your ‘something new’. Great for adding an extra special finishing touch to your dress, the hold ups boast a pretty lace top for even more feminine charm. With a pure white or creamy nude shade to choose from, that walk down the aisle will never look so fab!

So whether it’s a special occasion in your social diary or you’re craving a gorgeous alternative to those tired sheers, be sure to venture into all things thigh high for an instant leg pick me up.

Until next time ladies…

MyTights.com have pulled together the best tips and tricks for your bridal hosiery on the big day…

DO try on your hosiery and underwear under your dress BEFORE the big day. It’s incredible how many women don’t do this until the last moment when they suddenly realise that their hosiery is too big/the wrong colour/visible under the dress. Order well in advance, and leave enough time to order again in case you want to cialas change your product.

DO prepare your body. It’s tempting to exfoliate and moisturise when you’re getting ready but be aware that if you’re wearing hold ups this is going to make it tricky for them to stay up. Take a look at our how to buy viagra online without prescription
