As usual I’m revealing the secrets of a hosiery wearer with this view of my fishnet protectors.
If I’m being an optimist then this is a two for one post.
Underneath this sexy exterior lies this! An extra pair of hosiery to stop the fishnets from rubbing my soles and causing blisters. The fishnets are Donna Karan signature collection micro tulle and the socks were a freebie with an order from China.
Yes they did protect, and yes I was aware of them all the time, and yes the sexy woman aura wasn’t as sexy.
Secrets of hosiery
Today I’m goiung to reveal one of the secrets of hosiery.
This is what goes on behind the doors of a hosiery wearer. Yes extra socks to prevent lace tights from rubbing my feet. I usually forget to do this and end up with sore feet for the next day. I tend to find the brightest coloured socks in an un contrastiung pattern to not match my tights. Hey, I’m not going to pretend they’re not there.
These tights are my second pair of Golden Lady floral lace. This time given to me by my pal LT, the first sadly died when I applied too much pressure and pushed my hand through them. They are an ace clear pattern and because of the material, feels crochet-ee keep you warm in autumn weather.
Fancy a bit of deep sea disco fishing
Fancy a bit of deep sea disco fishing. Pink fishnets! Did I want to make a statement today or what. These are Philippe Matignon, macro fishnet elasticated matt tights.
I’m not sure people noticed them with my long skirt but then again I’m not sure if it’s because they had noticed them but were too embarrassed to mention them. (My skirt did have a side split) That’s the effect fishnets have on people. Are they too sexy to comment on?
I had doubts about their comfort today but my thighs, it turned out, were not fat enough to cause too much rubbing and discomfort and the socks helped with friction on my soles.
This is my faux Christmas post. As I have mentioned before I am either still in hospital or I’ve been allowed to go home and heal, both situations are not ideal for hosiery wearing so this post was aptly chosen for the yuletide edition because of their cheekiness. They bring a little cheer into your lives.
Legsavenue “Hardcore net pantyhose” it says on the packet. Quite comfortable, gorgeous design. A crochet style fishnet creating a diamond, criss cross pattern. Having such big holes made them a bit difficult to put on with the holes becoming tourniquets on my toes. Then the interesting bit came along, a slight change in weave. The toes became a smaller fishnet which more or less worked to save my digits but with a bit of wriggling and stretching I did get a couple of strangled toe moments. They are not a thin thread but a thick string so still felt very warming despite the gigantic fishnet holes.
Fabulous Falke tights today. I’ve tagged them as purple but the actual colour is violetta. I always forget how comfortable Falke hoseiry is. The waistband is wide and is name marked. The colour seemed dark in the shade but when the sun came out they shone with a warm violet. Beautiful!
The toes were supposed to look like this, with a slight reinforcement but with my feet and that funny walk I have, it didn’t take long before this happened and I got strangled toes. That’s the problem with fishnets. The hole size of this pair of tights were not as cauterising as some so not a big fault. Please excuse the neglected toe nails, did I ever tell you I’m really lazy!
Diamonds are Forever
Diamonds are forever! Double diamonds today with this pair of diamond net holdups with diamond backseam by Leg Avenue. Again no silicon and so using spandex (is this elastic?) they held up by the power of strangulation.
It’s a day of doubles because as well as cutting off the circulation to my legs the effect was replicated at the toes when they got tangled up in the net.
They should look like the top with a comfortable covering of the toes keeping them neat and tidy but instead they sneakily slipped and the net provided a very efficient tourniquet for all five toes.
Fishnets are always sexy and the diamond backs are super cool, breaking up the mesh pattern creating a more interesting look. They were comfortable, it’s just I don’t like being squashed and getting overheated on another day that started wet and horrible.
As in the case of all my posts, it is not easy to look this good! 😉
Crochet Floral Fishnets
These crochet floral fishnets and the diamond patterned fishnets have been a surprisingly successful. Bought from a discount hardware store they have been been excellent value.
They are Golden Lady and this pair consist of a floral pattern
and the most impressive bit was the reinforced toes to stop them getting strangled!
Mona Marella fishnets
I’ve been a bit busy lately and will be for the next few days, at least, so I’m posting late and also I’m going to cheat and use my scheduled posting to look as though I’m really efficient and good.
This morning’s post is of these Mona Marella fishnet tights. I love fishnets, I love the way they look and I love the way I can look sexy and glamourous without putting in much effort into it.
Once on these were fine, I found them a bit difficult to put on. My toes kept getting in the way and the fishnets are quite thin and I thought I might snap them if I pulled them too much especially when the toes were in the way.
I had to go barelegged later in the day because at the moment my belly is too fat, too many biscuits and treats at work. Luckily for me the climate is getting warmer so I didn’t freeze. BTW I am going to make pale, bare, white legs trendy, watch this space…
A double dose of repeat offenders.
So yesterday I had on Pamela Mann spotty tights last seen on this post and I thought I’d sit in the car and enjoy them.
These tights have been washed and a warranted a repeat wear to demonstrate if there was any shrinkage. Not much shrinkage, the tights unworn still looked like they were made for someone that was 6 foot (I am a measly 5 foot) but I didn’t feel as much gravity wrinkling. My thinking being that there is a little bit of shrink but this just made them feel a bit more comfortable and sturdy.
Today’s gem is this pair of tights originally from this post about the warmest tights in the world
and I still think they are. Unlike the Pamela Manns, these still show quite a bit of excess on my tiny legs. So as you can see from the main picture I own the warmest pair of hosiery in the world and also the warmest looking dog too.
Gabriella fishnet holdups
I bought these Gabriella fishnet holdups (calze model 153) because I wanted a large holed fishnet pattern. These fit the requirements perfectly and from one of my favourite suppliers, mystockings. I was a bit worried about toe strangulation
but the holes are big enough not to give that sensation even though my toes were through the net. They produce a really seductive look and a nostalgic glamour that some older ladies reminisce about. The floral lacetop is rather pretty too.
