Glamory Micro60 Reveiw
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, 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!

The difference between regular stockings and Glamory Hosiery starts with the materials. Our hosiery are made from high-quality materials that are meant to be used over and over again.
As a woman who has it all, you want a pair of hosiery that are resilient, comfortable and fit. Glamory started an ambitious goal to offer women with curves fashionable leg wear with the perfect fit and the perfect leg wear. Glamory Hosiery is just the pair for you!
Regular stockings are often treated as single-use items simply because the quality is incredibly low. In the end, you end up spending even more by repurchasing low quality stockings.
Glamory stockings are designed to last. As long as you take care of your hosiery, and why wouldn’t you take care of something you love?
The best part of Glamory Hosiery is comfort. Instead of painful elastic bands that pinch and creates unflattering bulges, Glamory Hosiery thigh highs are made with a silicone band that sits comfortably around your leg. Because of the materials we use they are also made to stay in place and not roll down.
The Glamory collection is specifically engineered for women with curves in six different sizes. We do not believe in a one size fits all or most. Our bands conform perfectly to your leg without squeezing and never slip down at an inconvenient moment.
It’s time to pamper yourself with premium hosiery - It’s time to experience the difference of Glamory Hosiery

I have been a follower of Sophisticated Pairs Blog for a long time. I contacted her and asked her if she would like to try some of our hosiery and write a blog post of what she thought of them. Below is what she posted and had to say about our hosiery. Check out all of her blog posts at http://sophisticatedpair.com/blog/
After my review of the fabulous Kix’ies holdups, I was contacted by a distributor for Glamory hosiery about testing some of their products as well. My expectations were high since I was so pleased with the Kix’ies, and after I received my samples, I realized how complementary the brands can be to each other. Kix’ies strictly sells hold-ups at the moment and focuses on modern patterns and textures while Glamory offers a more subdued but equally wonderful range of stockings and tights, even to include those designed for men.
Glamory is also technically a plus-size hosiery line with sizes 40-42 (Large) to 60-62 (5XL), but the size large fit me comparably to my size B Kix’ies. Still, I think the inclusion of higher sizes is fantastic as far too many plus-size women are left out in the cold by the lingerie market. Price-wise the brand is between $15 and $22 making them comparable to what you can find in most boutiques or department stores. For the review, Glamory sent me four different pairs of hold-ups: Glamory Micro 60 in black, Glamory Deluxe 20 in black with red lace, Glamory Vita 40 in black, and Glamory Couture 20 in black.
Before I begin my gushy outpouring of love for how gorgeous each pair is, I feel obligated to answer the question every woman asks about hold-ups: Do they stay put all day? I am pleased to report the answer is a resounding “Yes!” After doing my now traditional stocking dance around the house, I tested them at the shop, and in both instances, I did not have to fiddle or readjust once. Like the Kix’ies pair I reviewed, Glamory does not cut into the top of the leg to create that less-than-sexy-why-am-I-even-wearing-these muffin top look. In fact, I think the stretchier lace manages to smooth and perfect, even if you’re like me and have jiggly thighs. Glamory accomplishes all of this by using two extra-wide panels of silicone gel at the very top of the lace which sticks to skin to keep everything in place.
To me, Glamory offers women a traditional aesthetic—and I hesitate to say “traditional” as it can sometimes carry a negative connotation, but I love having choices. One of my complaints when I wore strictly Cleo bras, for example, is that I was stuck with bright colors and quirky prints even if I was craving something different. And sometimes I want something that makes me feel like Sophia Loren. Glamory captures the essence of what makes vintage stockings look so beautiful and bring that grace and style to the modern woman.
I am also a big fan of how Glamory offers multiple deniers in their stockings. The Deluxe and Couture are both on the sheer side, thus making them softer and more delicate, but the Micro and Vital designs are more like tights. Since the weather in NC has not been the warmest lately, I appreciate the added weight and thickness of the Micro and Vital. A sharp gust of ice cold wind rips right through the sheers, meaning they only come out to play on days when it’s at least 50F (Yeah, I’m a baby). The Micro tights also have the least amount of lace at the top, which leads me to believe Glamory married practicality to pretty to create perfection. I feel more confident in these than in my tights with whom I have a love/hate relationship. I love how they keep me warm, but I hate fiddling with them or getting runs wherever my zippers happen to sit. I never appreciated how much I actually adjust, readjust, take down, pull up, etc. my tights until I started wearing hold-ups as much as I do now. Once the hold-ups are on, I do not have to do anything else with them for the rest of the day. It’s liberating!
Glamory Couture20From a non-practical, purely-aesthetic point of view, however, all of the samples are lovely. The Couture epitomizes the vintage stocking and features a reinforced foot and toe region—the latter does limit these to more closed toe shoes. However, I absolutely adore the contrast red and black lace on the Deluxe. It’s one of those design decisions that pops and makes the whole stocking that much better. Now, in all fairness, the lace of the stockings extends further down my thigh, increasing the risk it will be seen. However, I don’t wear super short skirts anyway, so this isn’t so much an issue for me. If you do, the lace may flash a little with movement, but hey, it’s so pretty! At least it’s not like that weird gradient thing on top of tights and hose.
Overall Grade: A+
