Fully Fashioned Stockings

These nylon stockings are beautifully smooth with a sheer finish. Manufactured in the traditional way on the original Flat Bed 400 needle machines used from the 1940’s to give the original look and feel of the glamorous nylons from decades ago. Hand finished with care by craftsmen in England.

Stocking Terms Explained

Cuban heel - A stocking with a heel made with folded over and sewn reinforcement.
Demi Toe - Stockings which have a reinforced toe with half the coverage on top as on the bottom. This results in a reinforcement that covers only the tip of the toes as opposed to the whole toe. These can be with or without a reinforced heel.
Denier - The lower the denier number the sheerer the garment. Stockings knitted with a higher denier tend to be less sheer but more durable.
Fishnet - Knitted stockings with a very wide open knit resembling a fish net.
Fencenet - Similar to fishnet, but with a much wider pattern. These are sometimes worn over another pair of stockings or pantyhose, such as matte or opaque, with a contrasting colour.
Full-Fashioned - Full-fashioned stockings are knitted flat, the material is then cut and the two sides are then united by a seam up the back. Full-fashioned stockings were the most popular style until the 1960s.
Hold-ups or Stay-ups - Stockings that are held up by sewn-in elasticated bands (quite often a wide lace top band).
Matte - Stockings which have a dull or non-lustre finish.
Mock Seams - A false seam sewn into the back of a seamless stocking.
Nude Heel - Stockings without reinforcement in the heel area.
Opaque - Stockings made of yarn which give them a heavier appearance (usually 40 denier or greater).
RHT - Abbreviation of reinforced heel and toe.

Sandlefoot - Stockings with a nude toe, meaning no heavier yarn in the toe than is in the leg.
Seamed - Stockings manufactured in the old Full-Fashioned manner with a seam running up the back of the leg. In the past they were manufactured by cutting the fabric and then sewing it together. Today stockings are generally fully knitted and a fake or mock seam is added up the back for a particular fashion look.
Seamless - Stockings knit in one operation on circular machines (one continuous operation) so that no seaming is required up the back.
Sheer - Stockings generally of a 15 to 20 denier.
Ultra Sheer - A fine denier fibre which gives the ultimate in sheerness. Usually 10 denier.
Welt - A fabric knitted separately and machine-sewn to the top of a stocking. Knit in a heavier denier yarn and folded double to give strength for supporter fastening.
