H4001 Vintage Fully Fashioned Stockings


Price: 22.00





* Luxurious fully fashioned stockings made on vintage Reading knitting machines
* Sheer 15 denier nylon, with sewn seam and finishing loop
* Made in 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

Classic Cuban Heel Fully Fashioned Stockings with a vintage inspired 'What Katie Did' welt imprint on the welt. It's no surprise that these very special nylons are exclusive to What Katie Did! It's also no surprise that they are extremely popular and that demand is by far outstripping supply.

As we're unsure of the next delivery date and don't want to keep you waiting, we've set our Welt Imprint Stockings to sell out - but more stock is expected. If you want to be the first to know please use our nifty 'email me when back in stock' button which can be found under each variation.

It was standard practice to have a welt imprint on stockings in the 1940s and 1950s showing the manufacturer, style and size. In the 1950s stockings were packed several pairs to a box, and customers would purchase one pair from a box. Without a welt imprint it would be very difficult for customers to ever find that perfect pair of nylons again!

* 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!


  • Great Product! Wanted to buy them for so long. Thankfully with the sales I finally get the chance to buy 3 pairs (2 black and 1 in nude colour). Although they were seconds they look like brand new. What Katie Did: Excellent Seller ! Fast shipping! Highly Recommended!


  • I am 5'4 with slender legs, and found the Medium much too big. If you are this height with wider legs, then this size might fit you, but I returned them for the Small and they fit perfectly. If you are on the bottom end of the cusp with these sizes, then I would recommend ordering down, because they do have a lot of give.


  • The only stockings that grace my legs! They are second to none & I couldnt possibly wear anything but these...Ever.


  • yea us men do love a lady in seamed stockings


  • I'm sooo lucky to wear XL in these as they are still in stock...! I really wish for WKD to find a solution to the current "FF crisis" ;) These are simply the best, period.


  • Hooray !! some nylons which ar long enough for me ,I'm just under 6ft. I can wear a knee length skirt and know the tops will not be showing .Look after them and they will give good service and look good for ages.


  • As an insomniac unhappy with her legs in daylight, these are the first I grab for when I go for one of my many midnight walks. As long as I don't have any sharp edges on my nails, they never run or snag before I even get them on, unlike similar stockings from other brands. (My experience with other brands may or may not be the same as yours, though.) As an (unfortunate?) side effect, drunk men seem to love seamed stockings.

    It is both a curse and a virtue that FFs are so irresistible! Aimee x
