Black Seamed Stockings H2044
Black seamed stockings are one of the most iconic items of clothing from the 20th century, instantly adding intrigue and glamour to your ensemble.
Black stockings were traditionally kept for evening wear in the 1940s and 1950s and if you want to create a period correct look we suggest you do the same. Otherwise, the world's your oyster! Nothing screams sex appeal like pulling on a pair of black seamed stockings and they can certainly uplift a dreary Wednesday morning.
Our Stockings are designed to fit up to a UK dress size 18, US size 14 and up to approx 29" thighs. They're made from sheer recycled 15 denier nylon with elastane for stretch: 87% nylon, 10% elastane, 3% polypropylene. Very importantly they feature our signature wide, stretchy welt which is comfortable and period correct.
All of our Glamour Seamed hosiery is made in Italy which is renowned as the home of high quality hosiery manufacturing.

Fully Fashioned and RHT Stockings
Fully Fashioned and RHT stockings are made from none stretch nylon (although they do have a little mechanical stretch which means although the yarn is officially none stretch, there is some 'give'). This makes selecting the size far more critical than with modern hosiery which contains elastane or lycra for stretch.
They're stockings are made to fit the average dress sized 12 to 16 woman (8-12 US, 40-44 European). If you are smaller than this please try the size below, if larger please go up one size. Please do not be tempted to go up more than one size as these stockings are non stretch nylon and this will lead to wrinkly ankles!

Really impressed with the quality and fit. The size guide is superb and includes thigh circumference so you can choose the perfect fit. The advice to wear hosiery gloves while putting the stockings on is a game changer, no more snags while dressing! Quick delivery, and the packaging makes them feel really special.
Love the smooth color & texture of these stockings, and the back seam is the perfect glamorous & alluring detail to complete any look.
