I love stockings. I don’t think they need to be paired with an outfit for them to stand out. A decent pair does that all by themselves.
Recently, I have learned to appreciate even men’s legs in stockings, which I must admit isn’t something I wouldn’t have taken notice to before until pictures of male legs wearing stockings started to appear on my twitter feed. I think men look equally as fit. Of course, I have a seriously leg addiction – I bloody love thighs and calves , that I’m sure probably contributes to the fact I love them in stockings too. So what I’m trying to say maybe these might suit the man in your life or vice versa.
Anyway, that’s enough of my waffling.
A long time ago, I spotted these Lapdance stockings on the Lovehoney site. Like agggggges ago but the version they were stocking had a bright pink band of lace that sits on the thigh. I own nothing pink in lingerie. Nothing. I remember showing them to my OH wishing they stocked a version that was completely black.
Well my prayers to the Stocking Gods were answered – well to Lovehoney at least and a fully black version came into stock. And, I had to have them.
If you read my review of the Oh La La Cheri Bandage bra and skirt set , you may have spotted these stockings already. I bought them the same day I bought that set with the intention of wearing them together. And, I must say – they go perfectly.
The sizing for these stockings is advertised at size 6 – 16 and usually, these varied sized items are pretty pants but these Lapdance black fishnet stockings are pretty accurate. The main issue with stockings I find are thigh area and leg length. I have large thighs – my lower half is larger in comparison with my upper body. I find stockings can be a bit of bugger and usually need a suspender belt etc to keep them up. The Oh La La Cheri set has stockings attachments both front and back and these stockings are a perfect accompaniment to this set or in fact, they would go with any set really.
The first night I wore them I wore nothing other than the stockings and a pair of heels. I found they stayed up well considering they don’t have a band of rubber running through the lace which you would usually find on stockings. However, I don’t think they would hold all evening so best to attach them onto something for longevity.
Another feature I love about these – other fishnet stockings I own don’t actually have this feature but these Lapdance stockings actually have a narrower fishnet pattern across the toe region for added comfort. It really does make a difference. Toes aren’t poking through and getting caught in material.
And, they can take the washing machine too – if you read my other lingerie posts, you’ll already know I hand wash my delicates. These ended up in the washing machine by mistake and came out perfect – another bonus!
These are definitely my kind of fishnet! Thicker material which I think looks classier, doesn’t snap as easy and a lot more comfortable to wear. And at 9.99, they are a bargain – a must have lingerie drawer addition.
