Earlier this year I was contacted by Glamory Hosiery, who asked if I’d be interested in trying some of their hold-ups and stockings. I’d heard great things about the brand from Erica at A Sophisticated Pair, who carries a great sheer style in her store, and I’d particularly heard that they were a good fit for those of us on the tall and/or plus size end of the size spectrum (the brand also specializes in hosiery for men).
After reviewing the size chart, I requested to try size 44-46/XL, and Glamory sent me four beautiful pairs, including white hold-ups, ivory stockings, sheer black hold-ups, and the opaque black hold-ups featured here. I feel like a dope, because I’m not actually sure which style these are because I threw away the packaging and can’t seem to find them on the website, (Note: Glamory Micro 60) but y’all, they are FANTASTIC. I genuinely can’t say enough good things about the brand.
Sometimes hold-ups and stockings come up short on me, or the band is too narrow and digs into my inner thighs, but Glamory hold-ups are different. Though they use the same silicone grippy strips as other brands, they don’t seem to irritate my skin like some others do, and best of all, they stay put with no digging! I’ve been wearing the black pairs almost non-stop to work, and I suspect that when Spring comes around the white or ivory pairs will make an appearance on the blog.
If you’ve been frustrated with or sized out of other hosiery brands, I’d definitely consider giving Glamory a try!
