Come on girls, I want to know what are the stockings that you really enjoy wearing (I’m assuming you DO enjoy them!)

Although there is a vast choice out there when it comes to hosiery, I bet the majority will say either black or fully fashioned nylons Those seem to be the favourite among crossdressers. Or fishnets, maybe. Look through any type of crossdressing site and most of the ‘girls’ are in black stockings, usually with suspenders. Why is that do you suppose? Is it because black is more flattering, more slimming? Or does it hint at naughtiness whereas, say, tan stockings are associated with work wear?

Who prefers proper stockings as opposed to hold-ups? Should they have seams? Is there anyone out there who would rather struggle into a pair of tights?

Personally, I don’t like wearing fishnets (though I do have a couple of pairs because occasionally it’s nice to be a bit naughty!) They don’t have the sensuous feel of traditional stockings, though the nature of the ‘net’ is certainly flattering when it comes to shape. I’m not that keen on stockings that need suspenders either, which probably makes me unusual (or more unusual than I already am!) And although I do have plenty of black hosiery, they’re not my first choice when I crossdress and transform into Jemma.

For me, my go to stockings are natural beige, lace-top hold-ups, usually worn with nude-coloured high heels. I adore them and have many pairs from gossamer thin 5 denier to 15 or even 20 denier ones that hide many blemishes and hairs! I suppose I love that secretary look!

I also have several pairs of sheer-to-waist tights (again in natural beige), which feel wonderful but can be rather restrictive when aroused. If I’m wearing hosiery under my jeans, which I often do, then I admit I usually revert to tights as they somehow feel a bit safer! And if I choose one of my micro miniskirts to wear, then it’s always tights.

White stockings are very popular. I suppose because they hint at being innocent, but I’ve never bought any, and probably won’t. I suppose I might if I wanted to dress up as a blushing bride, but that’s pretty unlikely!

Old fashioned 1950s fully-fashioned nylons don’t do it for me at all, they are never long enough, they have no elasticity and are often wrinkly – a definite no-no! Technology has moved on and stockings and tights now are clingier. So, what’s the attraction in wearing an out of date pair? To me, it’s a bit like preferring to drive an old 1950s car rather than a brand new one!

Then there’s patterned tights and stockings. I usually give those a miss, apart from one lacy pair of stockings (black incidentally) which I sometimes slip on just for a change. Generally, I prefer to look as if I’m not wearing any leg wear but instead have smooth tanned legs – hence my preference for beige or nude.

And what about opaque tights or stockings? Anyone love wearing those? I have some which look good with ankle boots but because of their thickness they never feel as sensuous – and it’s that feeling of sensuousness I get from nylon-clad legs that I so enjoy.

And finally; how and where do you buy yours? Are you bold enough to walk into a store (in male mode) and buy some? Or do you hide behind the anonymity of the internet and order online? I’ve done both but when I buy over the counter I am ALWAYS convinced the sales assistant knows they are for me. I used to be bothered by that but these days less so.

So, there you are. You now know my preferences – now I’d love to know yours.

Jemma xx

I adore dressing as a woman and being as convincing as I can. I'm slim, which helps. Have crossdressed since my teenage years and have got better at it over the years! I especially like stockings and heels and clingy dresses or skirts that show off my slim figure. Would love to chat to other CDs, who knows... maybe even meet up.

Hi Jemma, I have so many pairs of stockings, stay ups, tights, leggings, pantyhose, etc. that I’m not sure where to start. I also have many “seasonal” items with appropriate designs for that time. I also “dabble” in cosplay so that could mean whatever. I guess my favorite that I wear most (even underdressed) are nude or suntan light support (15-20) denier pantyhose on which I cut out the private area for more comfort and ease in the bathroom. I like the nude ph. because if I wish I can still wear stockings or stay-ups over them. If I wear… Read more »

Hi Jemma I love to wear lacey topped holdup stocking’s in black,
I’ve had a few pairs in a grey colour too but I’m not into anything in beige,
I’m not into pantyhose or tights,
I’ve been tempted to buy some stocking’s with a pattern on them but you have to go to a specialist store for them,
Hugs Rozalyne x

I also have a lot of nylons, tights, No stay ups tho. I love the different colors so I have colors to match my out fit. I like platno tights, so sexy to wear, also like sheer nylons. but I am always buying new ones and getting more nylons and different colors. I have more then wife does and seem to dress up like a female more then she does

it seems that us x dressers wear nylons and dresses more then real woman WHY is that? real woman don’t wear what they call female clothing no more they would rather wear manly jeans and shirt, and that’s fine with them. That is cross dressing to me so why can not we dress like woman

I don’t thinks, o far I have a deep preference on the type of stockings I wear. Right now I sometime wear tights or pantyhose. I either buy them online or the Target store where I worked for 40 years. The hosiery isle is one past the infant furniture. I look to see if any one is nearby, then walk slowly down the isle. The first thing there is ladies socks ( I now have a lot of socks, next is tights and pantyhose -I’ve gotten good at picking out something there I want in a half minute or so.… Read more »

I love all kinds of hosiery, be it stockings, stay ups, or pantyhose. For sex appeal, I don’t think one can beat nice stockings of any kind. Sometimes I like the old fashioned sexiness of fairly plain ones, and have a couple of pair of tan and black ones, with a back seam. However I do like pantyhose a lot, in part because I like to wear short skirts and dresses, unless one is staying in and wants the rather risque look of stocking tops. When I go out I dress to blend in, so nothing out of the ordinary… Read more »

Hi Jemma. I have a lot of stockings and pantyhose. I love red but only wear them on special occasions. I do have a few white ones but the majority are black or charcoal. They hide a lot of flaws in my legs. I have a few that seem to have a shiny sheen to them which I love. I have both stay ups and ones I need a garter. I love wearing garters but I really struggle getting the clasps to work properly, so tend to revert to stay ups most of the time. I do have a few… Read more »

My favorite type of stockings are black fishnet, wetlook, and latex. High waist garter belt, or with one of my gartered corsets/basques. I do have a pair of opeque black ones with lace at the top, pretty sexy too!
My girlfriend loves to see my nail polish through the fishnets

Hello Jemma, The only thing I would add to this conversation is that I am also slim but with a little belly fat that I am working on. Regular panty hose come 1/2 way up and over my belly. That either causes them to roll down or create a line in the middle of my belly. Either one not good. There are high waisted versions of pantyhose. They help solve the belly problem. They go right up and end under my wide bralett band. I have also taken to modifying my pantyhose with a well placed hole up front. That… Read more »
