* Luxurious Cuban Heel Fully Fashioned Stockings made on vintage Reading knitting machines
* A Cuban Heel means that the heel doesn't taper into a point, but is a narrow rectangle
* Sheer 15 denier nylon, with sewn seam and finishing loop
* Made in the UK from 100% non stretch nylon so fit is critical (see sizing)
* Designed to fit the average size 12-16 woman, smaller or larger? Please try one size smaller or larger as applicable
Genuine 15 denier, Cuban Heel Fully Fashioned Stockings. Made in the UK from 100% non stretch nylon.
These glamorous seamed nylons are made on the same vintage Reading knitting machines that were used to make Fully Fashioned Stockings in the 1950s.
A Cuban Heel means that the heel doesn't taper into a point, but is a narrow rectangle. Both Cuban and Point Heel Fully Fashioned Stockings were made in the 1950s, so if you're going for an authentic vintage look it's down to your personal preference.
If you look closely you'll see the tiny picot lines, a row of dots either side of the seam which is caused during the knitting process making the leg of the stocking narrower and wider - which is where the name Fully Fashioned comes from: fashioned to fit the leg.
* These 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!
My first purchase from WKD and certainly won't be my last. The stockings are top quality and fitted me perfectly thanks to the sizing information. They look and feel so feminine and glamorous that I doubt I'll be buying "run of the mill" stockings again. I am now a total vintage lingerie convert

Love your stockings! Great quality, fit and styling. Only the best from WKD.

I've bought two more pairs since wearing my first pair nonstop! The champagne colour is gorgeous, and makes all other 'natural' coloured hosiery look a sickly green. They're soft and silky, and it's incredibly difficult to stop touching them! I'm normally a tights person, but I don't think I can ever go back to anything else (waiting for WKD seamed tights to come in the mail to give them a go, though!).
Adding another recommendation to use gloves when putting them on, I've snagged mine a little already, and they haven't run at all, but you'll want these beauties to last as long as possible.

I've lusted over the fully fashioned stockings for ages and so glad I purchased them (should have done so months ago!). As with all WKD lingerie, the quality is amazing and it's just the luxurious experience (and joy) of putting on the items. I'd recommend putting the stockings on with gloves to avoid snagging them. I wouldn't buy my lingerie from any other company now- highly recommend

I just received these stockings and they are everything I hoped they would be. I ordered these in copper and the color was perfect - darker than natural or pale beige, but lighter than chocolate. Perfect! Will be buying more!

These stockings look and feel gorgeous. They are a fabulous fit ... and my legs feel a million dollars in them. They are hard wearing and lasted well....good idea to use gloves when putting them to avoid snagging them . Love them xxx

I was worried about sizing because I am 5'3 and bottom heavy with large thighs. I ordered 1 size up and they fit perfectly and are so fine and silky feeling. Perfect.

Once you go Fully Fashioned, you can never go back. They feel like a dream, much finer than the coarseness of the usual Spandex mix you find in other stockings, and nylons are much stronger and last for months longer. They are perfect for a really authentic look!

These bronze stockings are the shade that I wanted, but I wish the seams and heel reinforcements were a darker shade of brown in order to provide more contrast, making those two alluring features more visible. The lady who received the stockings likes the quality.

These are classic, vintage stockings - fully deserving of that distinction. They are elegant and look very

Oh, the glamor of real FFS! I have these Cuban Heeled stockings in Black and am now on to my second pair. For 100% nylon, these stockings do have give- I wear a small and have never had a welt dig in once; and when they stretch a bit too large a handwash in warm water bounces them right back. Now, these are by far NOT the only Cuban Heeled FFS on the market. So why buy these?
That's because WKD has a slimmer and more feminine Cuban Heel than I've ever seen anywhere else, and that's why I'll keep wearing them! Gorgeous feel, and hard wearing, too- these laddered slowly, but more and more after 20+ wears. I think the laddering gives them character where as stretch stockings just get ugly snags. It took more than 20 wears before my first pair FINALLY began to get little holes next to the laddering! For 15 Denier- that sure is something!
No other Cuban Heel FFS can beat these in my book. Enjoy the glamor!
