need to find seamless stockings pronto

Recommended Posts

hey. smile125.gif

 

 

im helping my mom find control top seamless stockings.

 

what are some good brands, and where would i purchase them?

 

i have tried spanx but they arent seamless, right??

 

we ordered her dress on line, so she only has a certain amount of time until she can return it if she isnt happy with the way it fits. in her case it fits but she wants to make sure she finds good stockings that are control top and seamless...so she feels comfy...the dress is satin.

 

thx :o)

Satin is such an evil, unforgiving fabric if you're not the tiniest person (speaking from personal experience). I feel for your mom!

 

I'm sorry I don't have any suggestions for you. sad.gif Good luck though!

argh i know, satin sux most of the time.

 

my mom is actually very thin and dont even need them imo, but shes insisting though so whatever. it will help smooth out her undie lines and "flaws" i guess. which arent flaws according to ME, she had 3 kids and looks damn good for her age but try telling that to a 57 year old woman. lol ... i guess they make her feel toned.

 

im wondering if vicky's has anything.

Haha, I know what you mean! My mom is 53 and is always on a "diet" because she thinks she's fat. Geez, I hope my body is as nice as hers when I'm 53...she's had 3 kids as well!

 

I saw someone post on another thread a while ago saying that Wal-Mart has some faux-spanx undies...maybe try there?

I love Hanes Smooth Illusions Go Figure! The mid-thigh style smooths the stomach and hip area but is still super comfortable! They only go to mid thigh and aren't stockings. They do carry a stocking version. I can't speak from experience on this particular style but as for the brand, it's really wearable!

 

Here's a link for you:

Edited to add: I totally forgot to mention you can't see any seams with them!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
