Hold ups are a fabulous invention in hosiery that allows you to wear nylons that go as far up as your thigh and not any higher. A nice option for wearing when it’s warmer and also for when you really don’t want the extra added layer of nylon. I am quite fascinated with garters as well don’t get me wrong but a good hold up stocking can’t be beat!
I follow Glamory Hosiery on Instagram and decided to give them a try. Not only did they look beautiful but I was also intrigued with the idea that they would reach the top of my thigh! To my delight, Glamory did come to the top of my thigh with room to spare – I did not feel that I had to yank them up super tight to get them to the top of my thigh and dare I say there was still room to spare! Room to spare means the stockings will likely not slip down either given there’s no pressure on them to stay up. And if you’re 5’8″ tall like I am or taller, these stockings will likely do just as well on you!
If you are curious where all the different pieces of lingerie and bras are that I am wearing with my stockings, please visit my page on Instagram for links to each.
I can happily say these stockings do not run the risk of falling down and comfortably stayed up on my thighs. I’d wear these stockings under a skirt or dress without hesitation and in hot weather the lack of chub rub is a plus girl’s best friend! Have you tried Glamory Hosiery yet?
