Our Glamour Seamed Stockings made from nylon with elastane which means they do stretch making them easy to fit. Our standard range come in two sizes which cover dress sizes UK 10-18 (US 6-14), 5ft to 5ft 11.
Contrast Backseam Cuban Heel Stockings Ch/Blk H2072
Stand out from the crowd in our 1940s style contrast Cuban heel seamed stockings. The seam, Cuban heel and welt (stocking top) are dramatic black against the light skin tone leg.
‘Cuban’ refers to the squared off detail at the back of the reinforced heel of your stocking. In keeping with period correct attire we’ve limited our Cuban Heel Stockings to neutral shades.
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 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!
