Just an old picture from a few years back! I’m unpacking my warm socks as we speak because Calgary is getting chilly. In the background there is a post card from a fan. 

I am noticing that I am only roughly 700 followers away from hitting the big 20K mark! This is so exciting. Thank you so much for believing in me and subscribing to what I post.

Twitter is the only open-minded platform that hasn’t flagged my non-nude pantyhose images as somehow “too sexy” and hasn’t deleted any of my accounts because of that.

My twitter handle is @FantasyStocking. Please follow me if you aren’t already and I appreciate all the comments and retweets. I am very close to my milestone!

Calvin Klein displays shiny hosiery on the runway – stay ups under sheer dresses

September 16, 2017 under Brands

Calvin Klein 2018 collection

I got this photo from Anatoly Borodin’s Facebook. He is also very excited to see shiny white hosiery on the runway. You can tell that these models are wearing stay up stockings, but I guess the daily adaptation of this trend for fall would mean shiny grey and white pantyhose.

Reverse Control Top Effect on Pantyhose

pantyhose from Taiwan on my legs

This is a photo I took on my vacation to Boston as I was sitting down to relax at one of the shopping malls I visited. I got these pantyhose as a gift from a girl who recently went to see her family in Taiwan. People know how much I like pantyhose, so they bring it to me from their trips.

I was so afraid that these Taiwanese pantyhose won’t fit me just because I am taller than an average Asian girl. To my surprise, they fit! I have never thought of myself as a hard-to-dress person, but with these Asian sizes I am frequently off the chart.

What I found surprising about this pair is the effect that you may at first think is the “mock stocking” pattern. These are actually the panty lines, it’s just that the panty itself is made of thinner material than the rest of the leg. While I was walking like that on high heels I already got an offer to go on a date from a random Bostonian gentleman.

Fishnets under Ripped Jeans

August 31, 2017 under Style

by Kate, Russia

Fishnets under ripped jeans? Why not!? So far, I can tell that I have fallen in love with fishnets. Ripped jeans are available in the wardrobe of almost any woman. We wear it with T-shirts, sweaters and sneakers in order to create a grunge style.

Generally, such trendy ripped jeans plus fishnets continue to gather momentum. I love this combination of different materials and texture because it is an affordable trend and looks stylish and sexy.

A usual combination with skirt and dresses is a routine already. That is why decided to wear my ripped jeans with my favorite tights and…voila! I created the balance between precious and vulgar, and I still like it. The small net size and nude color of my fishnets make me feel comfortable and sexy.

Colder days are coming up and these fishnets add a little bit of warmth, still allowing me to flaunt my cool denim. If you also would like to get a pair of such fishnet tights, check out Greta style by Fiore.

Wolford Boutique Hopping in Boston

August 24, 2017 under News

I just arrived back from Boston two weeks ago and I brought back a souvenir – a pair of Wolford Fatal Seamless 50 den tights that I bought at one of the two Wolford boutiques there.

Both locations offered a luxury experience. My first visit was to the Wolford boutique at the Copley Place where I was warmly greeted by Linda. She welcomed me and started off by telling me about the brand and all the cool specials in store that day on dresses and swimwear.

I chatted with Linda about a few things that interested me. Turns out that Wolford now has special uniform for their staff. If they wear pants, they don’t have to wear hosiery, but with skirts they should. I also was offered a bottle of water, it was a very nice gesture considering how hot it was outside.

Then I headed to the next location and I was greeted by Mindy, the manager. She was wearing a skirt and tights and looked very professional. Again, customer service was simply excellent. I told her that I’d buy something, but I already bought a pair of Wolford that day. Usually if I get good service, I make a purchase just so that I am writing a review as an actual customer.

I would like to thank both of those Wolford locations for welcoming me so warmly and representing this high end brand in the best way possible.

These photos were submitted by a happy nylon couple. This is Sophie, showing off her legs in Vanity stockings by Fiore in black shade, worn with a garter belt. She also has a pair in nude shade as you’ve seen in one of the previous posts.

Fishing Time – Do Sheer Tights Protect from Mosquitoes?

August 18, 2017 under Seasonal, Travel

by Helene, Mexico

Summer heat. I love water… any water, even if it is just a puddle after rain.

So, you can imagine how happy I was when my friends announced that they are going fishing. Tomorrow. Early in the morning, before the dawn. I am a night-owl, getting up in the morning for me is a torture, but…  fishing equals being near water, probably, a large body of water, like a river or a lake.

Have I mentioned by the way that I have a fishing rod? That’s a funny story; no, am not into fishing. I was coming home from a small trip in my car, when I saw something strange – many people, maybe a hundred of them, like ants, are crowding on a small bridge. I thought something happened, stopped and went to check if I can be somehow useful. And yes, something was happening there, right at the moment – they had a fishing tournament, in a small stream. I even asked to take a photo with them, and the organizers presented me a fishing rod.

So, I have a fishing rod. I unburied it from piles of things that are still loaded in the corner after moving, found my backpack that I was using for hiking in Norway – and am ready to the trip! Though…  Mexico is famous for its mosquitoes, those small ugly creatures that are able to spoil all the pleasure. But I had a solution! Sheer tights, I had read that they protect from insects, and I wanted to believe in that, as I did not have time to buy repellent.

After some hours, when we arrived to a sleepy yet mountain lake, I regretted that I had tights on instead of jeans as well as that I went to that trip at all. Mosquitoes were happy to see me, I had never seen so many of them before. They were flying around me trying to bite, and I was trying to remember what I know about malaria, zika and other illnesses that mosquitoes transfer: I was sure that I will get at least one of them. That lasted several minutes, though it felt like a year for me…

Then I noticed it.

Mosquitoes, they were coming, checking and… flying away. I thought that tights were helping till I noticed that those insects ignore me – I did not get a single bite: hands, arms, legs – nowhere! While my friends (none of them came to an idea to put on tights of even thin socks, all were wearing jeans or thick clothes to protect themselves from insects) were suffering badly. Mosquitoes were practically eating them up.

So, what`s wrong with me? Maybe because am not a Mexican, a “strange blood”? Do not know, but after the trip one thing became evident: local needle-nosed pests dislike me. The trip was good, the amazing mountain lake was worth writing poems about. But I am feeling offended.

Here is a photo of my legs in glossy Raula tights by Fiore. I took this photo today on my deck, wearing high heel shoes and denim shorts. Later I changed into flats and went to do some grocery shopping still wearing these, catching some looks of course. This style is sheer to waist with a cotton gusset.

Slava Zaitsev, Ethnic Colour Explosion

August 14, 2017 under Runway

by Helene, Mexico

Slava Zaitsev Spring 2017 collection Russian ethnic costumes

Recently I have read a post about successful celebrities. The author was insisting that for success just talent isn’t enough. One shall have a proper background, implying that his or her parents were able to invest in the child’s development. Otherwise, doesn’t matter how talented the child is, he or she will be a failure.

While watching this fashion show, I was thinking to myself: “Yes, in this case the post author was 100% right, creating such stylish outfits would be impossible if Slava had poor parents… Taste and this fine feeling of beauty and elegance do not come from nowhere.” The diversity of his outfits, most of which could serve as an icon of style and elegance, inspired me to read little bit more about the designer, Slava Zaitsev.

I was amazed and to some extent shocked: his mother was a usual housewife, and she has never had any beautiful clothes. Actually, that is why Slava creates such looks, rich and elegant, to somehow compensate for that mum`s feeling of, probably pain and hope that once at least her child will be able to have what she couldn’t afford. Inspired by richness and brightness of Russian national colours, Slava creates masterpieces (yes, and I am not afraid of using this word!) that can be worn in everyday live and for women of all sizes. Each of his creations is well-balanced, elegant and distinctive at the same time.

Slava Zaitsev Spring 2017 collection Russian entire red outfit

I am not a fan of red colour, I practically never wear it because my shyness dampens the joy, even if this of high quality and of truly elegant style. My mum always taught me never to wear everything of the same colour.

Perhaps I am too old school? If I would be a celebrity, like a famous TV host let’s say, I’d probably easily flaunt something like this in front of the paparazzi, with an expensive car to match. That would be a real gutsy statement!

A row of models dressed in white parade down the catwalk in crisp white tights and nostalgic hats. I would say, elegance is a key word to all looks created by this designer.

Any shade of pink is quite a controversial colour. These outfits, however, show this shade in a different light, rather not connected with all the Barbie glamour, but with the elegance of a mature lady that isn’t afraid of experiments. Confident and yet charming.

Slava Zaitsev Spring 2017 collection Russian checkered gingham skirt

This skirt would look equally nice on a slim woman and on a fuller figured woman or a woman coming from a cultural background that requires full body coverage (ex. Chechen republic). Slava Zaitsev is famous for also creating clothes for women who are “just bigger than average”. His work is very versatile, he even designed athlete’s uniforms for 1980s Moscow Olympic games.

Slava Zaitsev Spring 2017 collection Russian checkered gingham jacket

Here is a one more casual style for the ladies with fuller figures, it accentuates the feminine lines. It would, in my opinion, be more interesting to see an actual plus size model wear something like this to show women of all sizes that it is not difficult to select good styles for their shape.

Wait a second here, what a daring design, but didn’t my mum teach me not to wear more than three colours at once? I would like to get a better look at the dress underneath the jacket because this orange/black combination with stripes on the side seems pretty cool.

Slava’s designs show a lot of cultural roots to them. He uses very unusual combination of accessories, scarves, and so on to create his looks.

Slava Zaitsev Spring 2017 collection Russian blue and gold outfit

Here is a luxury mix of royal blue and gold.  Hosiery matches the rest of the outfit and adds a special elegant touch as if it is a business lady heading to some artistic exhibition.

Here is another example of a dress that would be appropriate for a woman with a fuller figure. The head piece is pretty avant-garde in my opinion, but it nicely finishes this whole Mongolian-like concept.

Slava Zaitsev Spring 2017 collection Russian red dress

What a classic colour combination – red and black, with mesh for elegance. Romantic and mysterious, but so different from the rest of the collection.

In my opinion Slava Zaitsev has his own unique signature, just like the iconic Dior and Chanel who were his inspirations. His designs are so well composed that they don’t require any cheap shock factors in order be remembered.
