One of the most popular brands in the boutique is Gio - the winners of our 'Stockings of the Year Award'. Their nylon stockings are well known worldwide, and they have a loyal following.
But what makes them so special? Well, firstly, they are stunning to touch. You will rarely feel anything smoother or more sensual than 100% nylon stockings.
Secondly, Gio stockings are made from 100% luxury nylon on authentic machinery that produced stockings in the 1950's (it doesn't get any more authentic or vintage than that!), then they are hand sewn, dyed, and pressed all using traditional methods.
Thirdly, they are quite rare. The time taken to produce a pair of stockings by hand means that there is a limit to how many can be produced each day (for that reason, we always try to maintain quite high stock numbers - in fact 30 in any size isn't unheard of, as we have them made to order for us).
The 'look of nylon stockings' also has a particularly seductive appeal. 100% nylon stockings have virtually no stretch to them, so they come in many sizes in order that you can wear the correct size for your leg shape. Once you have found the size that fits, you will see how beautiful they look, and will almost certainly buy the same product for many years (as many of our ladies do).
Finally, it goes without saying that they are perhaps the most glamorous stockings for either the boudoir, or for special dates. For that reason, those who know their stockings always keep a spare pair in their hosiery drawer, giving them confidence, and providing pleasure to others.
Lucy's Tip: Make sure your suspender belt fits and doesn't slip, this ensures your stockings stay in place and the nylon doesn't gather - also, to avoid snags, always wear hosiery gloves to put on your 100% nylon stockings.
