Because they have an in-house designer and research/development team, they can quickly react to the everchanging fashion trends, and are... Read More

Super Summer Stockings

Before the 1920’s, stockings were worn for warmth, but, as dress hemlines rose, women began to wear sheer stockings to cover their bare legs. Stockings would have been made from silk or rayon, then later nylon which was first introduced by a company called Dupont in America. Ladies choose to wear stockings over tights for various reasons. They can be considered healthier than tights due to having extra ventilation, and they are definately considered more alluring than tights. The downsides are that you may feel the cold during the winter... Read More

End of an Era for My Tights and Tightsplease

In these uncertain and challenging times we hear all too often of long established businesses going into administration and two of the latest are competitors of ours, My Tights and Tightsplease.

My Tights and Tightsplease were virtually founder members of the online hosiery business and set the standard for the rest of us. We have no doubt that magazine... Read More

Fashion house Libertine (founded by cult superstar Johnson Hartig) provided an element of reckless glitz with embellished rough lace legs. Jewels, studs and glitter are the perfect way to modernise classic lace, and this shattered... Read More
