How to Wear Thigh High Holdups and Stockings

What is the proper fit or way to wear thigh high holdups or stockings? That is the million dollar question. We are not about to say that we know how one should wear them properly. What we will discuss is how we believe the proper fit is for Glamory Hosiery. 

Wearing holdup or stockings has a variety of reasons or purposes to wear them. You can wear them for health reasons. Holdup and stockings are healthier to wear than tights or pantyhose. They are also cooler and should be more comfortable. 

"Glamory Hosiery is classic, sexy and is meant to be discovered"

Some will wear them to be fun and sassy and want to show off the welts and others want them to be discovered and part of the seduction with their partner. Others will wear them for themselves, to feel sexy and express their personality under the standard conservative office attire. Let’s face it, having the tops of the hosiery on full display may not be appropriate in the office or corporate environment. Glamory Hosiery is classic, sexy and is meant to be discovered! This makes Glamory Hosiery perfect to wear to the office and into the night on that special date. 

Glamory Hosiery is the only hosiery available in the U.S. that goes past the standard height and weight of 6’ and 200lbs or even 260lbs or 35” inseam. Unless you are taller than 6’7” or an inseam measurement over 43” and over 370lbs or thigh circumference over 41” our hosiery will fit you the way we feel they should. You will not have to worry about the welt showing or getting unwanted attention or looks from the people around you.

Sizing Based on Thigh and Inseam Measurements

We created a sizing guide after testing the fit on many fit models of all shapes and sizes from a person that is a size 4 to a size 32. We discovered what we always knew that Glamory Hosiery is more than a plus size hosiery company. We truly are, “luxury hosiery made in my size.” Our guide addresses the area in which you are wearing the thigh high holdups. Just as you would base the bra you wear on the measurements of your over and under bust. The same should be for your hosiery.   

We feel the welt should be on the top third of your thigh or higher if you like. Wearing the welt higher also helps with chaffing of the inner thighs. This will also firm and smooth your thighs and elongate your legs.

Tights were once only for men

This was back before women were allowed to wear pants, or even show their legs. Thankfully times have changed, and women can now wear whatever they want... so why can't men?
Men are realizing all of the comforts and benefits of tights that ladies have been enjoying for a long time. Tights are supportive, they’re warm, they don’t slip, and they have a fantastic look under a pant, and these benefits are far from gender exclusive. When viewed under a pair of trousers, like a dress sock, they simply look like a dress sock and the keep a man’s appearance flawless and seamless while providing additional advantages.
Glamory has have designed hosiery for men and taken special care to have it fit a man, just as with the women’s line, take additional steps to ensure comfort. Glamory has five styles that are in the men’s collection. Each are unique and address different styles or needs in men’s hosiery.

·         Glamory Classic20 is our sheerest hosiery at a 20 denier. These are transparent with a matte finish and very comfortable to wear and made for a perfect fit and comfort with flat seams a comfort gusset, reinforced panty and toe. Available in both Black and Teint. These are light weight and perfect to wear under your trousers.

·         Glamory Support40 is a semi-transparent hosiery with a 40 denier. These have a slight shine to them and have compression factors that will vitalize the legs as you move or standing still. Also with flat seams, comfort gusset, and reinforced panty and toe. Available in both Black and Teint. The Support40 is perfect to wear all day. They are engineered for that very reason. These are the go to style if you are on your feet all day. Also because of its supportive properties these will aide in shaping and smoothing the legs.

·         Glamory Support70 with a matte finish and opaque at 70 denier. Having the same features as the Support40. Available in Black. The Support70 is a heavier tight and ideal for the colder times of the year or colder climates.

·         Glamory Microman100 are opaque, matte finish and a soft microfiber with a 100 denier.  The Microman100 introduces a fly for access. Available in Black. These are perfect to wear to the office or on the construction site to stay warm. Also to the gym or a pick up game of basketball or running or cycling or any sports activity. Compression values and keeping the muscles warm just adds to the blood flow and keeping your legs fresh and energized.

·         Glamory Thermoman100 are the footless version of the Microman100. All the same qualities now with the option of being footless. Opaque with a matte finish and soft microfiber 100 denier. Flat seams, comfort gusset, reinforced panty and built in fly. Available in Black.     

Whenever I mention to retail store that Glamory has a men’s hosiery line I always get a weird look and it is usually followed with them saying, “we don’t have any transgender / cross-dresser shoppers. My first thought is why not, what are you doing wrong with your business that you cannot attract that part of the market. Second thought is they need to climb out of the box they built themselves and their business inside. Finally, I explain that the men’s hosiery is not even made for that market. I then see an even more puzzling look. I explain that all of our hosiery is made for men and women especially with our never before seen here in the US sizing that will fit someone 5ft or 6’7” 110lbs to 350lbs. with most of the transgender and cross-dress community dressing to look feminine. They are more of our women’s styles of the Thigh Highs and Stockings. That’s when the light turns on in their head. That’s when they understand.

Many of the men who wear hosiery are not gay, freaks, cross-dressers or any other label you want to give them. They are the postal workers, mechanics, police officers, fireman, corporate executives to office workers and men in the medical field. They are all men like Soccer star Paul Pogba, NBA star Russel Westbrook or Chicago born musician Junius Paul. Many designers are also showing men in hosiery as you can see in the Alexander McQueen’s spring/summer 15 show as well as shows from Dries Van Noten and Givenchy. The boundaries of gender fashion are starting to get blurry. Men it’s time to reclaim our tights. 

Men wear hosiery for style and support. Whether it’s under their trousers in the office or shorts while out doing everyday things. They are made for the fashion forward guy that likes to dress on point and live the luxury lifestyle. One of the many men I reached out to from our social media accounts was the author of one of the most popular blogs on men’s hosiery called appropriately Hosiery For Men. I was surprised to hear him say that his readership shows he has more followers in the United States than in his home country of the UK.        

The bottom line is men’s hosiery here in the US and the world is growing in popularity and is here to stay and the options and patterns will only grow as well.
