blah, blah, blah–does it really matter what I type here?
Well today I give you BOTH!
Here I am wearing a pair of tan pantyhose with a vintage 1980′s low-cut teddy:
In my members area, I wear a variety of hosiery–FF stockings, vintage nylons, pantyhose, fishnets, RHT stockings, lace top stockings, stockings with unique designs on them and I sometimes forgo hosiery all together for a smooth bare leg look!
This screen shot was taken from a video I shot a couple of years ago, “Pretty in Pink”. I was dressed in a feminine pink and white dress with lovely lingerie underneath. I enjoyed lounging around and giving you a glimpse of my underthings.
I just shot a brand new lingerie video today and this photo is a screen shot from that video. I’m really pleased how it turned out!
In the video I am wearing a sheer vintage robe, a pink full slip, sheer pink panties and all of the white lingerie and Fully Fashioned stockings you see above. I was also wearing a pair of brand new gorgeous high heels that were a gift from a member (thank you Thomas!).
…is a comment that one of my long time (stocking-loving) members had to say about my “Below the Waist” video. He went on to say “You have captured the art of stocking tease to PERFECTION! I particularly like the way you have shot different camera angles – it makes it SO much more alive and interesting. And the close up theme of “below the waist” – all the close ups – was just mesmerizing.”
Here are just a few screen shots from that video:

I found these pictures on my computer from last year and I thought you might enjoy seeing them. They were taken before I went out to go see a play in the evening. I don’t wear fully fashioned stockings every day, but I do enjoy the occasions that I do wear them out.
I prefer to wear my seamed stockings with elegant attire and nothing too short, too tight or too revealing. Unfortunately, seamed stockings have gotten a bad rap as being considered tarty or risqué. Which I find a bit silly considering they were apart of every day wear for ladies back in the 1940′s and 1950′s. But of course, it’s all in the presentation.
This is just a short teaser of one of my videos I shot for my website. The original video is High definition and 1280×720 in size.
About five years ago I started collecting vintage stockings, but not just any vintage stockings. My preference was for the more unique and rare styles that were made back in the 1940′s and 1950′s. I like to call these “novelty” stockings as I’m guessing such styles were saved for special occasions and not worn for every day wear.
The packaging for vintage stockings was another thing that made them special. They usually came packaged in a box with an eye catching font or graphic on the front of the box. The side of the box would give the stocking style name, color and size.
Vintage stockings also, usually, have a imprint on the stocking top with such information as the stocking brand, size, gauge and denier.
And I just love opening a box of vintage nylons and seeing a pair of pristine, unworn stockings folded up and wrapped in tissue. I always feel like it’s holding a piece of history in my hands!
And here are the dazzling stockings being worn! They are truly something special!
If you enjoy vintage stockings as much as I do, then you should join me in my members area where I model many other pairs from my collection just for YOU!
As a connoisseur of Fully Fashioned stockings, I feel it’s important to point out that not all stockings that have a seam running up the back are created equal! There are two main types of ‘seamed stockings’–those with stretch to the stocking and the non-stretch variety.
The stretchy seamed stockings tend to be cheaper and easily found at your local lingerie store or online. The seam up the back is purely decorative and is sewn on after the stocking is knitted. If you like the pin-up look of seamed stockings, then these stockings are a great way to try out that look without spending a lot of money.
On the other hand, if you are looking for authentic seamed stockings, the type that was worn back in the 1940′s and 1950′s, then you are looking for Fully Fashioned stockings. Fully Fashioned stockings have no stretch in the nylon and need a garter belt to hold them up. They are knitted flat as one piece of nylon and the two sides are sewn together creating the seam up the back. Unlike stretchy seamed stockings, the seam on Fully Fashioned nylons actually serves a purpose!
FF stockings, as they are commonly referred to, are not as easy to find as stretch seamed stockings and they are usually more expensive. I wrote a post about where to buy Fully Fashioned stockings if you are interested in finding a pair.
I should also point out that there are other non stretch styles, that are not Fully Fashioned stockings, that have decorative seams up the back. I’ve typically only seen this on vintage styles. Here is a rare example:
That is a rare pair of vintage stockings from my collection that has a completely sheer sole with a contrasting black seam running up the back.
Usually seamed stockings will either be stretchy ‘fashion’ stockings or the Fully Fashioned (non-stretch) kind.
Here’s your Tuesday Tease! A few still images taken from one of my recent video updates. The black satin gloves and stylish black veiled hat added a dash of class to my black seamed nylons and high heeled pumps.
I ended up getting a run in my Fully Fashioned stockings and was not too happy about it. But what can you do?
