Picture from a Hospital Bed

This is a picture from a hospital bed. The only thing I was semi looking forward to when I went into hospital was to update my blog with a pair of hospital compression stockings. Yes that’s how sad I am. So this is what was presented to me. A green toeless pair, that I had on for three days. At first, I didn’t realise they were toeless. Due to my short legs the nurses didn’t pull them up to reveal the toeless feature, so for two days I thought I’d punctured a hole in them with my big toe and […]

Rare warmer day

rare warmer day

On a rare warmer day I wore these gorgeous Le Bourget LDC hold ups. They are a silky sheer stocking with a wide red and black lace stocking top. Good hold, very comfortable and very pretty. I wore Le Bourget hosiery before with a pair of tattoo print from and was impressed by the feel and the comfort of this brand. I can assure you it’s a quality that is consistent with their products. Hope the carousel pictures aren’t too blurry.

Backed up with Laces and Bows

Laces and Bows

She turned her back and left in a flurry of laces and bows. That’s the effect I would have had if I were a heroine in a novel. These are Gabriella Carla holdups, received from legitup. A stunning looking pair of holdups with a lacey top, block black colour and revealing backs. The pattern of laces and bows had a little sparkle. They were comfortable and my only niggle was the silicon strip wasn’t very sticky. I had to endure quite a bit of cleaning (of the strip) and pulling up (of the stocking). This I think led to the […]

Ballerina boo hoo

Ballerina 285

Ballerina boo hoo, had a bit of a¬† cry when I put these on this morning. They came with a small ladder. I still wore them for the day and they will hold long enough to wash and wear again. Luckily for me the ladder is contained. So this pair of Ballerina hosiery art 285, consists of a general swirly pattern which winds from the foot, along the both sides of the leg and all the way to the thigh. The pattern at the front waved round to the leg which then troughed at the back. Beautiful stockings with, I […]

Figleaves Stockings

Figleaves stockings

Figleaves stockings today from my birthday gifts back in November. Opaque black and at 50 denier strong and thick, maybe too thick and elastic. They seemed to pull down my suspender belt so I was forever pulling it up so not sexy glamourous as I’d like to normally feel and be in this attire. The stockings themselves were very soft like one of those touchy feely paperback book covers. I liked the feel of these but the suspender belt malfunction was not a desired effect. Do I need a sturdier belt? or less elastic stockings?

Hello my name is Hose of fun and I’m a hoseaholic!

Collection 01/2016

Yes I’m a hoseaholic. I know I said I wouldn’t buy any more tights but it is the January sales and I couldn’t miss out on the sales. So from mystockings I got these packages which then turned into these tights And from simplyhosiery I got this Do I really need to buy anymore? Well cover pic is my collection of unopened brand new, never worn before packs of hosiery. So the simple answer to that is there is no simple answer, the world is a complicated place and no one knows how it all works. The only thing I […]

Trying Out New Stuff

Black Stockings with Floral Tops

Trying Out New Stuff: the second blog post of the day Today I thought I’d try out some new stuff, specifically my birthday suspender belt with what I thought were some plain topped black stockings. Once I put them on however I realized that they have a pretty floral top pattern instead! Not sure where these came from as I’ve worn them before and they’ve just been sitting in my drawer for a while. Here’s my new suspender belt (from Figleaves):
