For centuries women have been dressing themselves in clothing meant to be covered up with a kind of garish fashion stocking called a fashion stocking. This was a kind of intimate apparel first worn by medieval women as a functional and necessary piece of garment. Stockings have been available in many different fabrics since ancient times. In some cases, the word “stockings” referred specifically to leg dresses or skirts. In modern times, however, the term refers to any article of clothing having an elastic band across one side to hold it up. There are also several varieties of fashion stockings:
Mostly available as pantyhose, fashion stockings have a very flexible and stretchable nature that makes them suitable for almost all kinds of occasions. They come in two general types: the regular and the reinforced heel. Regular stockings, sometimes called “panties hosiery” or just “panties”, are usually made of cotton, polyester or nylon and are completely smooth without any lumps, cuts or seam lines. They are mostly seamless, but may have some reinforcing added for aesthetic purposes.
Re reinforced heel fashion stockings, sometimes called “nylon stockings”, are usually made of a blend of cotton and polyester/ nylon, with some reinforcing added for aesthetic purposes. They tend to be stiffer than regular pantyhose, but tend to be more resistant to stretching. They are also usually more lightweight than nylon stockings.
One of the most common and popular varieties of fashion stockings is the garter belt. The garter belt is another name for the stockings, tights and hosiery that cover the legs below the knees. Garter belts were originally designed as lingerie by women who wanted to look even more sexy. Today the garter belt is often worn as an outfit addition to a skirt or top for a particular occasion. They look especially beautiful on women who are wearing tight leg coverage.
The elasticity and stretchability of fashion stockings make them a great option for any occasion. In fact, they are so versatile that sometimes they are used on their own, apart from other type of lingerie. These days, fashion stockings and hosiery are available in various colors and materials, from sheer to taffeta, and can be worked into or mixed with other items of clothing to create an outfit. You can even wear them to work, although this might not be recommended. When purchasing fashion stockings, it is important to choose ones that are made of a smooth and comfortable material, such as cotton.
There are many different types of fashion stockings available, including: shirred, seamless, nylon stockings, nylon hosiery, satin, silk and Georgette. All these types of stockings have their own special purpose, as they are worn for various occasions. As an example, seamless fashion hosiery will not crease as easily as satin or silk hosiery, due to its smooth surface. Therefore, it is an excellent choice for dresses which need to have the body of a smooth garment. On the other hand, shirred hosiery has a gentle touch and will not irritate delicate skin.
