When it comes to selecting your hold ups, it can be a little daunting to browse through several hundred pairs, ranging from sheers to opaques. So, the ladies at Mayfair have compiled a guide to buying some of our favourite pairs.
We have selected one pair of key hold ups in each of the deniers, ranging from a sheer 8 denier, right through to a fully opaque 100 denier.
