The best brands for legwear
This blogpost contains affiliate links (marked with *)
I wrote about nylons, the most glamorous seamed hosiery, the latest tight trends, and how to take care of your hoses, but I somehow never managed to publish a blogpost about my favourite brands for hosiery. This is definitely something I want to change with this blogpost, as I wear a lot of stockings and tights from many different brands. I’m also going to update this blogpost whenever I find a new great hosiery brand, so you can always come back to discover the best brands for nylons, stockings, and tights with me.
PS: If you are not that familiar with the hosiery specific vocabulary, I highly recommend my stockings ABC, where I explain a lot of different stocking specific terms.
The best Brands for Stockings: Secrets in Lace
Secrets in Lace is definitely my number one when it comes to authentic vintage inspired fully fashioned stockings. This brand still produces on the original machines from the 1940s and 50s. Furthermore, Secrets in Lace offers a wide range of different heels, designs, and colours. Beside fully fashioned stockings with real seams, you will also find thigh highs, and tights in their online shop. You can shop the lingerie from this brand here, if you are from Europe, or here, if you are from anywhere else in the world.
The best Brands for Stockings & Tights: What Katie Did
Just as Secrets in Lace, What Katie Did offers original fully fashioned stockings. However, they are mainly known for their colourful stockings*, available in many different shades. Those kinds of stockings usually don’t have a real seam; they still look great, though. If you prefer tights, but still want to wear “seams”, What Katie Did is your brand of choice, as they also offer a wide range of seamed tights. You can shop their hosiery at their own online shop, of course. Though, they are also available via TopVintage*, or Amazon*, for example.
