* Sophisticated sheer black nylons with a contrasting red seam
* Full contrast with red foot, point heel, seam and welt
* Wear with plain black accessorized with red jewellery for a striking look
* Manufactured from sheer 15 denier nylon in Italy, the heart of quality hosiery manufacturing
* Made from a blend of stretch nylon and elastane for a comfortable fit
Oh la la! Although these nylons are made in Italy they look very Parisian to me. I can just see them being worn with a tight black pencil skirt, black and white Breton top and jaunty red scarf.
While you can't beat classic plain black seamed stockings, this red seam version certainly will add some playful charm to your ensemble.
Can never speak too highly of these fantastic stockings. As a re-enactor with my wife, these bring a touch of modern glamour to all the outfits she has in her collection. The fit and style is always perfect, as is the service provided by the WKD team - Thanks for a perfect shopping experience !

I haven't worn these yet, because it's too cold for stockings, but I tried these on and have to say these are great quality. I love the contrast between nude stockings and a black seam and will probably end up buying a lot more of these.
I'm 172cm and wear either a UK12/UK14 in WKD and bought a size medium. They're a bit wide around the top, but it's nothing I can't handle, because they feel very comfortable.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these stockings. Buy a few pairs and see for yourself - the price is right and the quality is superb.
Everything readily available in Canada is usually of inferior quality, manufactured offshore, which is so sad. I've been looking for a source of seamed stockings for years, and ordering from the USA is not currently an option due to the poor exchange rate and import taxes between Canada and USA. I had no such Canadian taxes applied on my order which very refreshing. I received my well-packaged order in less than a week. The stockings are absolutely lovely - I'm 5'11", 170lbs, US/CAD Size 8, UK Size 12, and the large size fits me perfectly - they're plenty long. I did not think I would wear the champagne with red seam to work however I ordered a couple pairs on a whim and they're now a wardrobe staple - dresses up a boring black business suit quite well! The nude with chocolate seam is a nice treat in addition to just the usual black seam I wear daily. I've worn both 100% old-school nylon as well as some blends from other brands with varying success so I can say this nylon/elastic/polypropylene blend is both comfortable and appears durable so far. I've washed them on the delicate cycle in my garment bag - do not use fabric softener - and hung them to dry and they're just fine. Excellent price at $14.50 CAD, and I'll be ordering more as soon as my budget permits :D

I have been searching for nude stockings with a pale pink seam for a very long time. And I can't believe I finally found some ! And at such an amazing price. I've bought stockings from well known luxury lingerie brands before paying around £30 and been disappointed compared to these beauties. I bought the size small and they fit me perfectly, I'm 5ft 2. Ish and about 9.5 stone. I have sometimes struggled with stockings as my legs are a little short and thighs aren't exactly slim. But these fit me perfectly, and were so soft and the quality is amazing and so flattering! I will no doubt be buying more and recommending them to every girl I know. Also postage was super fast and easily slipped in my letterbox. Thoroughly impressed ! If you haven't already... Buy some ! X

Great fit and great quality. superb service/delivery

I purchased three pairs of these stockings for events this past fall/winter - Champagne With Red Seam, Champagne with Coffee Seam and Champagne with Pink Seam, all size Small/Med 5ft 1 To 5ft 7 (110-145lbs). I'm 5' 2" and the fit was good on the pink and red seamed pairs (have not worn the coffee seamed pair yet) and the stocking were comfortable to wear all evening. I like that these have more stretch then most original vintage stockings.
However, I do have some small issues to note. When I opened the red seamed package I discovered that there was a small gap between the red heel sections and the red seams of both stockings. Not super noticeable when the stocking are on but I was disappoint as they are not returnable. Hoping this was just a manufacturing flaw with that particular pair. I wore the pink seamed pair for an evening of dancing and by the end of the night had a small hole and run in the toe section of one stocking. Still the fit was good and they were comfortable. Hopefully I will be able to wear then at least one more time. I was pleased with the wonderful customer service and speedy delivery.

I have these in champagne with red seams and they're lovely but I wish they came in a smaller size. I'm 5'1" and about 120lbs so the s/m should be perfect but I found the welts to be rather loose, and I don't have particularly slim thighs. They're also a bit long on my legs, I had to fasten my clips rather far down the welt, though I was wearing them with the glamour girdle which doesn't have adjustable suspender straps so perhaps I should pair them with something shorter

Essential to the pin up, 1950s style, very soft and comfortable !!
Pao240645800, 07 Dec 2015
These are my absolute essentials as far as stockings for daily wear go - I LOVE fully-fashioned stockings, but I just don't have the budget to risk wearing them on a daily basis. What Katie Did provides affordable, high quality seamed stockings for the vintage loving girl on a budget - I truly appreciate that!

I love WKD Retro Seamed stockings...they are the only ones I wear now, and have them in pretty much every color. They fit well, are durable, and are the perfect touch to my vintage outfits! Highly recommended! :)
cameorose2, 26 Oct 2015
Wow !, Bought as a present for my wife to go with a fancy Dress Army uniform, we were both blown away with both the quality and value of these stockings. The fit perfectly in every way and add a tongue-in-cheek twist to the olive drab colour scheme of the uniform.
Thank you WKD for a fantastic item. Hope to be back soon !.
Dan732776249, 05 Jul 2015
WKD stockings are hands down my favourite. I have long nails and wear several rings, and I still don't snag these stockings putting them on. Quality material and excellent fit, can't fault them!
Eri677417419, 17 Apr 2015
These look wonderful, I bought them for a Vintage Look photo shoot and I'm sure they will be perfect for the look.
Vic327868082, 06 Mar 2015
I've tried a number of stockings from other shops and they have always been too long in the legs or too short, too tight or too big and are easy to tear. These however are amazing everyday stockings, I would highly recommend them. Now I need to try WKD fully fashioned stockings.
714977265506, 17 Feb 2015
These are the best modern stretch stockings that have ever graced my legs! At first I'd thought the price was a bit steep- but when $8 snag on their first wear and these last 10+ wears before showing signs of wear- not only is the price fair, but cost effective and more than worth it!
These stockings have a very silky feel for containing elastane/lycra. As a petite but curvy woman, I get the size S/M and they fit like a dream! The welt is VERY forgiving to the thighs. Depending on your size, the welt may become slimmer from a side view to fit you, but they will never dig in or cause an unsightly bulge!
I now have these stockings (almost doubles of all) in Champagne/Black; Champagne/Red; and Black/Red. The contrast colored welt and pyramid heel offer something truly special to this line- and, for stretch stockings, these are so smooth that it's easier to get the seam straight on these than with some other brands. Indulge and start a collection- you can't go wrong with the WKD Retro Contrast Seamed Stockings!
Lette1317, 04 Feb 2015
These stockings are truly amazing! I'm (5'3.25"155-160 lbs) and the M/L fit like a dream! I sized up to meet weight rather than height as I have larger thighs (hourglass bordering pear body shape!) I bought the champagne with black seam, and champagne with pink seam.
The only issue I had was there was some black residue on the stockings with the black contrast. It seemed to have wiped away when I wiped it with my hand, but I was slightly worried when I first saw it. Other than that these are wonderfully made, and I will purchase more in the future!
Jor704131116, 13 Jan 2015
I can always rely on your stockings for quality, durability and retro pin up glamour!
Lydia, 3 April 2013, 13 Jan 2015
I love these stockings, however they don't last as long as I would have hoped. After the second or thrid wear, I have gotten holes in the toes.. not very glamorous! Perhaps I am doing something wrong! I don't want to have to change brand as I am so pleased with the wonderful customer service and speedy delivery. Please help!
katieolive12, 07 Jan 2015
Lovely stockings as usual :)
Ann724844762, 14 Dec 2014
I am Florcita from Argentina (South America) , I bought two pairs of "Retro Contrast Seamed Stockings , nude with black seamed " and they are PERFECT !
thank you very much for making such incredible stockings <3
Florcita, 03 Dec 2014
Nice stockings,good for day/ early evening wear
Car652815587, 03 Dec 2014
Lovely stockings, but the contrast toes on the Nude/Black contrast seams were grey rather than black - I know they don't show but it just looked odd until I put my shoes on.... having said that they are so comfy and a definite every day wear!
Lady Trinity, 17 Nov 2014
If only I were rich... i would order a thousand stockings. WKD products are high quality for a fair price.
tallulahaddams, 28 Oct 2014
I realy like the stockings they felt great on my my legs and also looked great as well i need a lot more stockings and pantyhose i wear them on the right day and i have to get some more suspender belts soon becuse the also look good on me.
steve taylor, 12 Oct 2014
Highly recommend these. Really good quality
MatildaD, 13 Sep 2014
I absolutely loved these stockings until they ripped on me the second day going out in them. They ripped at the top where the band and the stocking meet together. I would get another pair due to them feeling so amazing but I'm nervous they would do the same thing again.
Bre644243120, 28 Aug 2014
Excellent Product!!! Highly Reccomended!!!
Aphrodite, 02 Jun 2014
Wonderful stockings, very comfortable to wear, they immediately compliment any vintage or vintage style outfit. After having tried many stockings brands and types (modern hold-ups, vintage style with no stretch, etc...), I can tell you those stockings by WKD are the best I ever had. I was afraid they wouldn't fit me as I have larger tights, but they're PERFECT ! Plus sized ladies, buy with confidence from WKD :-D You won't be disappointed, the service is excellent !
Thank you Belle for your comment. Our stockings are fabulous and its so lovely to see you love yours!
bleuduciel, 29 May 2014
The quality of these nylons is superb - but I find the welt to be too narrow for comfort on my less-than-rock-hard thighs, even though I bought them a size bigger than needed.
Falabella, 28 May 2014
Amazing stockings, they feel so soft and even fit my plus size frame :)
Thank you for your comment - It's so nice to hear that you love our stockings.
Vintagewife, 25 May 2014
After a rude awakening that many stocking brands don't fit larger, wider feet, WKD is the one I've found that actually does! And the seams are just the right width, thin enough to look flattering, but thick enough to be noticed. I'm just above the 5'1"-5'7" (110-145 lbs) range (5'8", 130), with long legs. The stockings do end up just skimming below mid thigh, but I can just keep my garter straps extended, and all is well, because my skirts never go above knee length anyway.
Zak156848046, 02 May 2014
I have just tried a pair of nude with red and they are wonderful . As mentioned very soft and plenty long enough for me . Went very well with a summer dress. Great !
Hair 38, 09 Apr 2014
The nude/black seamed stockings are gorgeous. These are definitely the highest quality stockings I have ever had, they are so soft and smooth. I'm a little bigger than the size specifications for the M/L (5'9", 220 lbs) and they fit perfectly, I was so surprised. I absolutely love these, best stockings I've ever had.
MrsWhich, 25 Jan 2014
Would so love to see these in black with pink!!
FrenchKiss, 06 Oct 2013
I have tried umpteen seamed stockings that are out there on the modern market and was so glad when I finally found yours - I've never had any problems with them. I even find them very durable (something which can't be said for modern hosiery). I wear my stockings day in day out and they're fab.
I usually wear nude/black nude/nude seams but recently added the nude/red to my collection - they turned quite a few heads. Now the baby pink and coffee are out I think I need to get myself some of those too hehe.
MissBVintage, 23 May 2013
I love all of your stockings, but I wear the nude ones with the black seam over and over again. They are amazing!
