Nylon Stockings For Men
Nylon stockings are throwbacks to the very inception of stockings. Well, okay, perhaps not the inception of stockings, but at least to WWII, which was a fairly long time ago, at least in terms of my life span. At that time, nylon stockings were in great demand because nylon was largely requistioned for use by the military in making parachutes and other things of an equally useful nature. Nylon stockings were difficult to purchase and many men and women were forced to go to black market dealers to get their stocking fix.
Fortunately for the modern lingerie lover, nylon is no longer requisitioned for militaty use, and nylon stockings can be bought quite legitimately from a plethora of retailers on and off line.
Nude Nylon Stockings
Nude nylon stockings are excellent lingerie for those days where a man who wears lingerie just wants to fly under the radar in his stockings. Nude nylon stockings are easy to find and relatively inexpensive to purchase.
Sheer Nylon Stockings
Sheer nylon stockings are so delicate and soft against the skin. They slip and slide smoothly, providing a symphony of sensation. These red seamed sheer nylon stockings from Stocking Girl are a shining example of what can be done with a little sheer nylon and a little ingenuity.
Vintage Nylon Stockings
Vintage stockings are slightly pricier than stockings made this decade, but they carry with them a weight of history and vintage glamor that cannot be reproduced by more modern affairs. When you think vintage nylon stockings, think 1950's pin up glamor, think old school sensuality and style. Think, oh my god, these feel amazing.
Vintage Style Stockings
If you don't want to lay out between 30 and 60 dollars US for a pair of real vintage stockings, you can still get the look you're craving by purchasing modern vintage style stockings. Good modern replicas will include much of the details of real vintage stockings, including three thread back seams, pyramid deels and white band knit in the welt.
Stay Up Stockings
If you can't be bothered messing around with traditional stockings which depend upon a garter belt to function at all properly, splash out on a pair of stay up stockings. Stay up stockings have elastic or silicone grips (sometimes both) to help the stocking cling to your thigh and stay up all day long. There's an argument to be made for stay up stockings for men, as they tend to work a little better on lean male legs than curvy female ones. As a woman it can be a pain in the ass trying to avoid 'stocking roll' (I'll let your imaginations figure out what that one is... it's not alltogether different from a 'muffin top'.) Men have this issue much more rarely owing to the different distribution of fat on their bodies.
