Seamed stockings are stockings with a dark seam at the back . The seam runs over the heel and up the calf. Stockings with a seam are worn the same as regular hold up stockings. They can be worn in combination with suspenders. Seamed stockings are often associated with a romantic, elegant and chic look . They are real retro stockings that became completely popular again at the beginning of the 21st.
Seamed stockings were very popular around the 1950s . They were made of nylon, but this fabric was not stretchy. That is why the stockings were 'rounded', as it were, by connecting the ends at the back. Hence the dark seam. It was very important that you choose the right size to fit the stocking nicely. When the elastic stocking appeared on the scene, the seam stocking quickly disappeared from the picture. Many of the seam stockings now being made have both the well-known seam and the ability to stretch.
Who are fishnet stockings for?
Seamed stockings are generally worn by women . The seam stocking is especially suitable if you are looking for a more elegant look. The black line emphasizes the curved shape of the female leg. Partly for this reason, the seam stocking is seen as a feminine accessory. The seam stocking is also suitable for women who want to create a striking retro look . Dita Von Teese, for example, is known for her retro outfits. She also wears the seam stocking regularly.
What different models are there?
There are many different types of seam stockings you can choose from. That way you don't always have to go for black. For example, there are also red or skin-colored seam stockings. In addition to the color, there are more differences. Below a distinction has been made to help you make your choice.
Suspender stockings with a seam are stockings specially made to be worn with suspenders . Suspenders are straps on a lingerie set that pull the stocking up, as it were. Because there can sometimes be quite a bit of force on them, many regular hold up stockings can snap or tear. Suspender stockings are strong enough to be pulled up all day long by the suspenders. These sturdy stockings also have a seam at the back.
Seamed stockings with lace
Almost every stocking has a reinforced and elastic band at the top that ensures that the stocking stays neatly up. With some seam stockings, that band is made of lace to give this piece of hosiery extra elegance. These seam stockings with lace are often worn in combination with a suspender set to make the outfit even sexier. In addition, these stockings are also very beautiful in combination with lace sets.
Mesh seam stockings
Seamed stockings made of mesh fabric generally have diamond-shaped openings in the fabric . Fishnet stockings are often associated with a bold look . The provocative Madonna was regularly spotted in these stockings. They go well with a very sexy or cool outfit. For example, you can wear these mesh seam stockings with a open cup lingerie set or exciting club wear.
Panty with seam
For example, if you are afraid that the seam stockings will sag, you can opt for seam tights. These are regular tights with a seam at the back. They are easy to put on and do not sag quickly . When you wear a skirt or dress over it, no one will see whether you are wearing stockings or tights.
What can I do with seam stockings?
Seamed stockings can in principle be worn with everything.
Seamed stockings can look very elegant and romantic with a lingerie set . Black seam stockings in particular will go well with almost any lingerie set of your choice because of their basic color. Seamed stockings also look great with lace sets as both elements have a refined look. You can also choose to wear a suspender set. Make sure that your seam stocking is strong enough for the suspender. Stockings that are not made especially for suspenders can tear in some cases.
Besides the fact that seam stockings are popular for wearing under lingerie, they are also increasingly worn with ordinary everyday clothing . For example, you can choose to wear a skirt or dress over it. But more and more people shorts with stockings are also spotted. Stockings offer a solution when you don't like to wear tights , for example because of the tight band in your waist. You will not be bothered by this with stockings.
How do I put on seam stockings?
In principle you put on seam stockings just like normal stockings. However, many women will agree that the seam at the back does not always run straight across the leg when you put the stocking on. That is why seam stockings can be difficult to put on . There is a handy trick for this that is explained below.
Stand in front of a large mirror or grab one that you can place against the wall.
Stand back to front in front of the mirror and pull the stockings over your feet, but no further than your ankles.
Now crouch down and look at the mirror between your legs. Keep your legs as straight as possible. You will be able to see your own legs in the mirror.
Slowly roll up the stockings one by one, making sure that the line runs straight across your leg.
