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 So, what’s the attraction in wearing an out of date pair?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.

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.

Jemma I enjoy wear ing Leggs thigh highs. They stay up very well and I love sticking my leg up when putting them on. My favorite color is suntan. It brings out the color in my legs very well. It may be from seeing women wearing them and admiring how good they looked. I also have some pantyhose, also suntan, and I like the feel of the fit of those also.

My favorite stockings are from Secrets in Lace. They feel so smooth. They are a little more on the pricey side though. But you get what you pay for.

I love wearing retro beige seamed and seamless stockings with a garter belt or girdle with a dress or skirt. It makes me feel so sexy pretty feminine and dainty and so much of the woman I long to be.

Hi Jemma, nice article. I will wear pantyhose with very short styles and jeans. My favorite stockings are GIO. I love them in RHT, and full fashioned. They come in extra long sizes and fit fantastic. I can attest to that being 6’3″. They come up high on the thigh, and I can wear them with shorter skirts! Check them out, you may be pleasantly surprised. I also keep hold ups on hand in a variety of colors for special occasions.

Where to start! Pantyhose were my first love and I love to collect them. I have (literally) hundreds of pairs, many vintage that I will never wear, but I love the old packaging and artwork. As for nylons I actually wear, secrets in lace lace top thigh highs are my favorite. As mentioned they are pricy, but with care and hosiery gloves they last a long time. A close second is Hanes lace top thigh highs. They are a little thinner but feel just as nice. Without the enhanced toes though, they tend to run, especially if I wear heals.… Read more »

Hello Jemma, I am a huge fan of all hosiery and basically pantyhose are what started my crossdressing. I do have all you talked about and although I do wear sheer pantyhose more often as I to enjoy the sensuous fee of them. I do wear stocking with and without garters. In my eyes they all have their place. I do prefer hold ups to garter belts and I’ve have to say I have the most in black. Also beige, nude and cute pink coloured ones . My favourite brand would probably be Silks but do have all sorts of… Read more »

I am the odd duck here. I am not a nylons fan. I am a leggings person. I also like to wear bobby socks turned down when wearing shorts or skirts.
