How to choose size

Since our stockings are made out of 100% nylon, they are shaped after the leg in order to have a beautiful fit and straight seams.

To make it easier for you to choose the correct size we have made a size chart, based on your shoe size. If you know you are not 100% sure of your size, it´s ok. Even though the Nylon fabric does´t have a lot of stretch in itself, the construction of the welt and especially the keyhole admits a certain amount of stretch. So as long as you get the shoe size more or less right, they will work for you. If you are in between two sizes in the chart, go for the smaller size. Most important is that the foot has a good fit! The rest will follow.

And as you all know, Nylons of the 50’s didn´t have any rubber inserts to hold them up like today, which means you will need a garter. We have our own adjustable and strong 6 strap garter which is especially designed for Full-Fashioned Nylon Stockings. Please ask your dealer for more information. You will find it in our web shop soon as well.
