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! 😉
Oroblu floral ladders
The weather went cold AGAIN last week and I had to break into my secret stash and wear these marvellous holdups. Oroblu, Extase, a “tulle-based lace effect stay-up stockings.” With “a delicate, vertical floral pattern alternates with polka dots.”
They were fantastic. They looked great and they stayed up all day. The pattern is very pretty and with a bit of shuffling, I suppose you could rotate them round and make them seem like you have several different pairs of tights. You know one day the flowers are on the side, the next the ladder, polka dots are there instead.
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.
