Gabriella 60 den microfibra black tights on my legs plus size

Here is a shot of me wearing 60 den microfiber tights by Gabriella. These are actually plus size! Currently they are on sale, 50% off. There are a few shades to pick from – chocolate, cappuccino, graphite, and black.

A fan ordered them and allowed me to model them to assess how stretchy they are. The waistline is quite stretchy. I managed to pull it up to my neck. Here is a video below of me showing them off and playing with the waist band.

 

Happy summer shade – turquoise pantyhose!

Here are some photos you probably already managed to catch on my social media channels. I took these wearing XXL pair of turquoise Paula tights by Fiore to demonstrate how stretchy it is. They come in many fun colours.

There are a lot of customers lately looking for plus sizes. Paula is a 40 den microfiber style that comes in XL and XXL. So far it is the best seller on this site. It is literally the #1 item that I have so far sold most of.

Bright Tights for Plus Size – Fashion Statement?

October 12, 2014 under Seasonal

I saw these photos on a fashion blog that suggested this look for plus size fall fashion. Any thoughts? I don’t know if I like the outfit as much as I actually like the model. She looks so confident and happy!

Adrian Hosiery Brand

Adrian brand advertisement plus size hosieryDear pantyhose fans, has anyone tried Adrian brand before? I am considering adding it to the shop section, I found a supplier who can get it for me.

When I was in Poland a while back, I’ve heard that this brand makes excellent plus size items.

It just happened that I was on a train with a glamorous girl who was looking at a Russian fashion magazine and even writing notes and circling items. I’ve never seen a woman that serious about a fashion magazine!

Turned out she was in the fashion industry and had an assignment to analyze some trends. So she didn’t speak Russian or anything like that, but according to her, Russia was so forward with their fashion trends that she would order their magazines for research.

I told her I have a hosiery blog and she brought up that brand to my attention, turns out they had the ads all over TV and so on for their plus size selection.

I’d be happy to hear if you have any comments.

If I’d bring it in, would you give it a try?

Crystal Renn in Pantyhose and Stockings

February 15, 2014 under Photoshoots, Weird

Perhaps this model grabs my attention for the only reason that she poses in pantyhose and stockings. Otherwise, I find her quite unbalanced in her looks and in her ways.

crystal-renn-plus-model

Crystal Renn used to be a skinny model with eating disorders, then she wanted to get healthy and gained enough weight to be plus size. Later she went back to being skinny again. Now she is somewhere in between.

She did a provocative domatrix fetish-oriented photoshoot in Falke pantyhose. Pantyhose part attracts me, violence – not at all.

What is a Gusset?

June 29, 2013 under News

control top pantyhoseIt is good to know that the word “gusset” is not only used for pantyhose.  It simply means a piece of material sewn into a structure to create a proper fit.  You can find gussets used in shirts, bags, and so on.  Let me try to answer the question – what is a gusset?

Pantyhose gusset brings some debate.  I may find the courage to address it at some point.  Let’s just say that some people think it is there in order to be able to wear pantyhose without additional underwear.

But from brands like Fiore we see a strange thing – they only have gussets in size M and L, but not in size S.  It’s there for the fit.  Some other brands may have synthetic gussets, also to create a proper fit.

Somehow larger the size, more need is there for additional fabric in between, or maybe it’s just a side effect of production limitations.  A Polish lady told me that Marilyn hosiery brand, for example, finally found a way to create plus size pantyhose without having to use a large gusset.

Our local yoga pants brand for example states that they add gussets to their pants in order to increase comfort and mobility of pants that will never ride up.  They openly say that it prevents the embarrassing problem when the seam of the pants cuts in between the women’s legs and creates a visible cleft.

gusset schematic on pantyhose - what is a gusset

Inserting gussets is a time consuming procedure, so you may notice that cheaper brands may not have it.  You may be interested to see how many pantyhose patents there are on the internet trying to scheme around this.

Opinions?  I am sure you’ll have some!

What is a gusset?

“A gusset makes for a much better fit as well as ensuring there is no seam directly over sensitive areas. It is no accident that all quality brands include a gusset … as indeed do lesser brands on their premium styles. Gussets tend to be omitted only to save money in production.”
