Full Contrast Fully Fashioned Stockings

Our Full Contrast Fully Fashioned Stockings are the cream of the crop when it comes to luxury legwear!

Our Full Contrast Fully Fashioned Stockings are the cream of the crop when it comes to luxury legwear! They feature a contrasting black foot, seam and welt on a sheer copper leg.

We've just had a new delivery of these from our English factory, so we thought this would be the perfect time to tell you a little more about our seams!


Stockings are actually knitted from grey-beige coloured yarn and dyed after they've been made.

There are only a few working Reading Machines (used for making Fully Fashioned Stockings) left in existance and all are working to capacity which means that demand often exceeds supply.

This is especially the case with Full Contrast and Empire Fully Fashioned Stockings which are only knitted once or twice a year as they require standard production to be put on hold while they are made.


We're often asked if they had Full Contrast Fully Fashioned Stockings back in the day and the answer is yes! Katie picked up this true vintage pair at the Dapper Day Expo in Orange, California. Don't they look almost identical to our modern versions?

Thrifty Tip!

If you love the look of black Fully Fashioned Stockings but find it hard to keep them looking pristine, our Full Contrast Stockings won't show snags so you'll be able to wear them far longer.

Ultra-glamorous, our Full Contrast Fully Fashioned Stockings have been a firm feature in our styling sequences! As you can see, they work equally well on Frenchie L'amour's pale skin here, and Lady Eccentrik below.
