As you know, my cousin came over and wanted to wear some of my hosiery and shoes for photos. She put on her prom dress and white stay ups for photos.
Turns out, she likes all the Japanese dress up like cosplay. Let’s just say, after wearing these stockings she is not letting go of them and her friends are asking to bring them some too.
If you like these, here they are – Dalila stay up stockings by Fiore. There are only sizes S and M left and the price is reduced to $9.99 for clearance. I think it’s great for brides and for anyone who likes white lingerie in general.
This is Natalia Wolska, a Polish model, who took some photos with Fiore stockings. Usually bloggers and models do fashion shoots, but it is so rare to see a lingerie photoshoot like this in black and white.
When I see this, it makes me want to dress up in some nice lingerie. I love her garter belt and the way she is holding on to the welt of the stocking. She is simply divine.
This painting is called “The Muse” and it is by the Russian artist, Stanislav Plutenko. Girls in stockings is the main focus, but if you look at the background, you can see in what detail he painted the men watching – each one of them has his own character, his own story.
These are the fishnet stay up stockings that said “40 den” on the package.
Denier is a measurement that majority of the people are not familiar with in North America. I knew what it means from an early age, but I guess there is always more to learn.
Recently I bought a pair of fishnets that said “40 den”. I was kind of surprised that fishnets would indicate that. On the other hand, many other cheaper brands stopped indicating denier all together.
Here is a good answer from HosieryNovelties on Twitter.
The deniers define at 1st the weight of the yarn, and only indirectly the sheerness, that’s why. It’s 1 den if 9,000 meters of yarn weight 1 gram. Every yarn has a weight, including those used for fishnets. The heavier the yarn, the more opaque the hosiery tends to be. That’s why I said the mark of sheerness is only indirect. Note, weight and opacity don’t always go together. There are sheer pantyhose with high deniers.
I thought it was a very good point, so I decided to share it with you. Weave of hosiery for sure also plays a big role.
