My partner really liked these with the longer lacy tops and the others purchased. They arrived quickly but have yet to be worn. We're going out Friday evening and I'm looking forward to being tretaed
Sinfonie - Fantastic colour!

Firstly these are fabulous hold-ups, love the wide lace top which fits beautifully, doesn't pinch or irritate the skin as I have found in other brands. i order these in all the colours - the mink shade results in a prefect subtle tanned leg look - very welcome in winter. Stockings Direct are brilliant - all orders received promptly & they order this shade (& Anthracite) as a special as they no longer carry stock because it's not a popular shade - I can't imagine why not so I thought I'd better post a review to get it noticed!

Stockings are lovely, sheer with excellent lace detailing. May require stocking gloves to avoid snagging the delicate material, but for how sheer it is they are surprisingly robust.
On matters of size with the chart I was a size 4 but found them quite loose when purchased in that size - this may be due to me being on the shorter side - so future purchasers *may* want to consider a size down if they're shorter or on the small side of a certain size to ensure a snug fit. (I am 5'2" if it helps anyone)
Lovely set of hold ups though, recommend them happily and when I'm back on my feet again I'll be buying another pair in a smaller size :¬)
Great stockings but read details

Firstly I need to mention that stockingsdirect is a great shop. So simple, quick and reliable. So I will definitely use them for all my future hosiery needs.
Secondly the Trasperenze Carlotta Hold Ups: I have them in mink and this colour is a just beautiful mid-brown; and the description is correct, they are not even semi opaque. The 5" lace nicely gathers all the wobbly bits of the thigh and feels really good. However - and that is not the fault of the stocking, but of my legs - if one has really big thighs they are a bit on the tight side and tend to roll down a bit. But even then very wearable.
I love them for the hight of the lace, the material and the range of colours, well and the price is definitely reasonable. So they are definitely worth the trip to the gym to make them fit a bit more snug ;o)

these are the most amazing stockings. I have nice long legs however I have flabby loose skin at the top of my thighs the deep lace top hides this fantastic!!!!
