Hi... I love your photos. Sorry to bother you with a mundane question. I'm wondering what you think is the best type or brand of hold up stocking. I want to get something great for my girlfriend, mail them to her and have her wear them when I visit her. (We live on opposite coasts) I'll ask her to wear them with a black skirt, my favorite black blouse, no panties or bra, and meet me at the bus stop to walk me to her apartment. What do you think?
Hi and thanks. That’s not a mundane question. Stockings are serious. :)
What a fun and sexy idea you have for your girlfriend and I’m happy to help with some advice. Without a doubt, my favorite brand of hold-ups are Falke. And my fave style made by them is their wide-lace topped Shine Thigh Highs. They’re beautiful, comfortable, wear like iron and so, so, soft. Trust me you want to touch these. This is some of the softest lace you’ll ever touch.
One of the reasons I love these is that the lace band is so wide. Here’s a pic of me in them. I’m 5’4” and you can see that the lace covers a lot of my thigh because I’m a shorty.
I hope you guys have fun! Even if you guys don’t get this style, Falke is a great brand and I can’t recommend them enough.
i like pantyhose why do i feel so out of so embarest when i buy them or is there a way to buy them without being so embearest[spelling]
I’m not sure why you feel embarrassed, but I think that anyone who would like to wear nylon has every right to do so. If you feel shy about buying them, there are tons of great places to buy pantyhose online and have them delivered right to your front door.
In the US, I recommend Bare Necessities. They have a great selection and reasonable prices. In Europe, the UK, or the US, you should definitely check out UK Tights. Their selection is amazing!
Have fun, and try not to be embarrassed. Loving yourself and accepting who you are isn’t always easy, but no one has the right to judge you over what you want to wear.
I recently saw a Lane Bryant TV commercial with a 'plus size' model featured in lingerie. To me, she is very attractive, but that industry's standards in general are usually geared towards very tall, very thin models. Do you think the business is opening up fast enough to have more realistic images of women? I think that women of all sizes should be acknowledged as having sex appeal!
I agree that women of all sizes have sex appeal and one of the things I love most about Tumblr is that there are blogs celebrating the beauty of all kinds of different people. As a plus-size woman myself, I know that the options for clothing, as well as the messages broadcast from the media have changed dramatically, especially in the last ten years. Is it happening fast enough in the fashion industry? In a sense, I don’t think the real change will come from them. I think it comes from real people of all shapes and sizes being willing to put themselves out there and claim their beauty with confidence. The more that happens, the more quickly things will change.
Sorry for all my many reblogs - your stuff is just amazing!!!
Please don’t be sorry, I think it’s awfully nice of you. I’m also glad you reblogged me because it brought your tumblr to my attention. You have quite an eye and I think anyone following me would seriously dig you. I love the stuff you’re choosing.
