My thoughts on stockings

I was honoured when @more_matters asked me to host a prompt. Obviously, I chose a topic close to my heart, and being Christmas week, stockings seemed apt too!

I’ve been absolutely captivated by them since I was a teenager: they truly are a weapon of seduction! A flash of a stocking top can have the most dramatic effect: anyone who has worn them will know this, and it is our superpower!

I can still remember the first pair I bought: fishnets, for my girlfriend from Fenwick’s in Newcastle. I recall being somewhat embarrassed as a teenager going into the lingerie department of big department store…

Since then the fear and embarrassment has subsided, though the thrill of buying them for yourself still causes a little frisson of excitement, especially when the nice lady in M&S makes a joke about you trying them on yourself (true story!)

Tights were the work of the devil, and I cursed whoever invented them for many years, though I have come to appreciate them more in recent years (I even own several pairs!). Hold-ups have become much more prevalent in the years since I bought my first pair of stockings (1984 since you ask!) and these days they actually stay up too!

I first pulled on a pair of hold-ups and became Alice in 2012 and they effectively changed my life. Stuck in a miserable relationship, it was a real escape for me to become Alice, a sexy, confident person. A pair of hold-ups or stockings empower me and make me feel invincible. Since then I have never been more content than when wearing a pair. I challenge all the men out there to try them and see how it changes your life!

Since March this year, working from home, I have been dressing every day (as evidenced on Twitter), but looking at the photos I take with a critical eye, I just feel I look sexier and more confident in a pair of stockings! You are free to draw your own conclusions…

Finally, and this is the law, the suspender belt should *always* go under the knickers (except for occasional aesthetic reasons!).

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and may your stockings be filled with good things!

  2. I agree with you 100% that stockings are the sexiest invention of all time. It seems to me that the power of the sexuality of stockings is now somewhat underestimated. Yes, fiddle with them a little more, but the result …

  6. What a treat Alice, browsing all your images, you definitely have a way of projecting a different attitude when you wear the varying outfits, demure, sexy, vampy, frisky – you got it all babe and you have quite the stylists eye for outfit combinations. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and motivations too.
