Details

* Luxurious navy blue Cuban Heel Fully Fashioned Stockings made on vintage Reading knitting machines
* A Cuban Heel means that the heel doesn't taper into a point, but is a narrow rectangle
* Sheer 15 denier nylon, with sewn seam and finishing loop
* Made in the UK from 100% non stretch nylon so fit is critical (see sizing)
* Designed to fit the average size 12-16 woman, smaller or larger? Please try one size smaller or larger as applicable

Genuine 15 denier, Cuban Heel Fully Fashioned Stockings in deep navy blue. Made in the UK from 100% non stretch nylon.

These glamorous seamed nylons are made on the same vintage Reading knitting machines that were used to make Fully Fashioned Stockings in the 1950s.

A Cuban Heel means that the heel doesn't taper into a point, but is a narrow rectangle. Both Cuban and Point Heel Fully Fashioned Stockings were made in the 1950s, so if you're going for an authentic vintage look it's down to your personal preference.

If you look closely you'll see the tiny picot lines, a row of dots either side of the seam which is caused during the knitting process making the leg of the stocking narrower and wider - which is where the name Fully Fashioned comes from: fashioned to fit the leg.

* These stockings are made to fit the average dress sized 12 to 16 woman (8-12 US, 40-44 European). If you are smaller than this please try the size below, if larger please go up one size. Please do not be tempted to go up more than one size as these stockings are non stretch nylon and this will lead to wrinkly ankles!

Reviews

  • I have had bad experiences with fully fashioned stockings from other "vintage" style companies, but I decided to be brave and try these. I am so glad I did!!! They are so silky and smooth. The navy is such an unexpected color on the legs, which I really love. They are designed a little fuller in the thigh and I would say these even have a touch of give (not exactly stretch, just a bit of give.). Sadly, not enough give to last more than one wearing. My only sorrow was that I squatted down and they ripped at the knee, so I now have one stocking, (which I am keeping for when I have another special occasion to order another pair for). If your daily life doesn't require occasional rigorous movement these will easily last better for you, and I think a luxurious pair of stockings for a special occasion is always a must!!
