Summer is just around the corner, and with the increase in temperature, we can slowly consign the opaque stockings and tights to the back of our hosiery drawers - exchanging them for a more sheer, lighter selection of stockings.
During the summer months, stockings with a suspender belt will be much cooler than tights - and for the 46%* of women who wear hosiery all year round, that can make a difference.
The next think to look for is the type of material used to make the stockings. Silk is a natural material and will feel cooler than man-made options - which is one reason the silk stockings will be slightly more expensive. However, a good quality pair of nylon stockings will be more than suitable for a night out.
However, as we provide stockings to nearly 200 countries, we have to spare a thought for those that are either in winter, or nearer the poles - in that instance, opaque stockings are your friend! (and the French Gerbe Opaque 70 stockings are stunning).
