Christmas Stockings with UK Tights

*Post contains products which have been sent as a gift.

It's definitely tights weather out there, with winter having finally made itself at home here in London. But with party season on the horizon, we don't just want tights that fit. We want cute stockings, hold-ups and all those trimmings which finish off the perfect party outfit. And with so many brands to choose from in one place, UK Tights are the hosiery superhero we all need in our life!
UK Tights had initially got in touch with me about the new plus size stockings line from vintage repro brand, What Katie Did. I was so excited as it's quite difficult to get proper Cuban heeled, back seamed stockings to fit chunkier thighs, and their designs are such a faithful reproduction of a trusty vintage style which I love. Made in a 15 denier design, the curve size will fit up to a 36" thigh which I'd guess tops out at roughly a UK 24 / UK 26.

Suspender Belt: Glamory Powermesh Garter Belt* (£41.99)
Robe: Primark (£8)

The stockings were teamed up with the Glamory Powermesh Garter Belt, which goes up to a UK size 36. The 6 strap belt is completed by satin-covered metal clips, which is amazing as there's nothing worse than cheap plastic clips popping as you walk. You feel completely secure when wearing this, and the simply black mesh design makes it easy to match with most underwear sets if you're planning on showing it off.

Bra: As before

The next item I tested out were these Cette Sochi 120 Denier Plus Size Cotton Tights. I really appreciate a good pair of high waist tights, as they feel more secure AND offer extra warmth! Available up to a 3XL (56-58" waist), they have a soft, almost wool like feel and miraculously, stay in place when wearing! The high cotton content allows your skin to breath, but also keep you feeling super cosy on those cold winter days. They are a winter essential done well - the perfect, no-budge everyday essential!

Bra: As before
Slip: Primark (£7)

The final item I tried out was an absolute dream. Cute hold-ups with art deco inspired tops? Yes please! These Glamory Deluxe 20 Denier Hold Ups again fit up to a UK 36, and come in a range of colours including the beautiful black and red mix seen above. Without a doubt they are boudoir ready, but more importantly, they are life ready, staying exactly where you want them to be until you slide them off.
