Hold up stockings come to your thighs and stay in place by themselves. These stockings are often a bit firmer than suspender stockings, which are made to be held up by suspenders. Hold up stockings also usually have a silicone edge on the inside so that they stick to your thigh, as it were.
A piece of history
Hold up stockings are not that old yet. In the first half of the 20th century, stockings were always held up with the help of suspenders. Later came the tights and then hold up stockings that drastically improved comfort . In addition, the hold up stocking got a sexy image.
What can you do with hold up stockings?
You can wear hold up stockings in combination with your daily clothing , for example with a skirt, dress or shorts. Some women find that tights can feel tight in their waist. Hold up stockings don't have that problem, which makes them more comfortable for many women.
In the bedroom
But hold up stockings are also seen by many people as very sexy legwear. This makes hold up stockings very popular to wear with a seductive lingerie set . When you have a sexy set without suspenders, hold up stockings are a perfect addition. But even if you do have a suspender set, hold up stockings can be suitable. Please note that hold up stockings often have a slightly less thick edge at the top so that they can tear more quickly. Caution is therefore advisable. If you are not so comfortable with hold up stockings, it is best to choose jarretelkousen. These are specially made to withstand suspender clips, but often do not stay up by themselves.
How do you keep hold up stockings beautiful?
If you want to enjoy your hold up stockings for a long time, there are a number of things you can take into account :
The price : if you are looking for stockings for one or two uses, you can very well go for cheap stockings. You have a basic pair of stockings from € 4.95. But if you want to enjoy it longer, it is wise to choose a pair of good quality stockings. This usually also means that the prices are slightly higher. Good sturdy stockings are, for example, the black hold up stockings of Leg Avenue.
Caution : stockings are made of a thin fabric which makes them vulnerable to sharp things. So always keep your nails trimmed and filed when you put on your stockings. Do you want to keep your long nails? Then be extra careful and take your time.
Washing : Many people throw their stockings in the washing machine and dryer without protection, after which they can come out damaged. For long-term preservation of your stockings it is best to purchase a laundry bag. This ensures that your stockings remain protected from zippers and buttons. You can also use a laundry bag for your other lingerie and legwear to keep your underwear beautiful for a long time. Finally, do not put your stockings in the dryer, but hang them somewhere to dry.
