GUIDE TO WEDDING STOCKINGS: WHITE OR IVORY BLACK BRIDAL STOCKINGS

What do wedding stockings look like? Which are some of the best wedding stockings that individuals can use during the occasion? White or ivory black bridal stocking, which is best? This article explains some of the guides an individual needs for a wedding occasion. 

Preparing for a wedding, you are always stuck between choices. You have to pay attention to even the little details. Stockings are one accessory that can bring you a better, more refined look. But often, there is always the choice of color design and type. The choice of color between white and ivory black isn't quite easy, and with the wrong choice, you might end up turning a look that was meant to look good into a fashion disaster.

The female body is simply a work of art, from the edges, boobs, and the ass. Any woman's feature can be accessorized and turned into a center of attraction. However, people focus more on the outward features (the ass and boobs) and forget the legs, a big turn-on. When accessorizing the legs, only the stockings come to mind, or just deciding to go in a mini-dress. There are many ways to incorporate stockings with lovely garments to make those legs sexy. However, with the growing trends in fashion, many types of stockings go with different kinds of garments. When choosing the right stockings to match your desired garments, there are also factors to consider. These factors will also come into play in wedding dresses, and the type of stocking is also important. 

Types of Stockings 

Fishnet/Fencenet Stockings

They may not come off necessarily as stockings but are worn to give a flatting look as they bring out a bit of skin. They also give a nice temperature to your legs.

Lace Stockings 

Okubo (2017) explained that with an authentic look on every outfit, these are stockings that will bring out feminity when worn. They are made of lace, thus the name. They have lace ends at the thighs that bring out a girlish sense. 

Transparent/Sheer Stockings

From afar, you won't notice these stockings depending on the skin tone of the one in them. It is because they are transparent and sleek, a layer of nylon. They come in different categories and look sexier since they are showier on your legs. 

Thigh-high Stockings

Thigh-high stockings are fashionable, especially for young girls. (Turgenbayeva 2017) They resemble high-knee socks since they curl up at the thighs above the knees.

Garter Stockings

These stockings are not common since the pantyhose have replaced them. A garter belt or suspender belt suspends them to get a sexy look. 

Open-toed stockings 

As the name suggests, these are open-toed stockings, unlike the other ones covered to the feet.

Opaque Stockings 

These are just the opposite of sheer stockings. They are available in various fabrics and shades, but some come as semi-opaque showing some skin.

Seamed Stockings 

These stockings are sewn together from flat fabrics producing a seam visible at the back of the legs. These stockings need to be pulled up along the leg to make the seam visible.

Fullbody Stockings 

Made from the same material as sheer stockings, these stockings resemble bodysuits worn underdressed and cover the whole body.

Under-cover Stockings 

These are stockings like shorts ending at the thighs, while the rest of the material is rather translucent to the feet. 

Choosing Stockings   

Agle et al. (2020) explained a few things to consider when shopping for stockings for a perfect pick.

  • To lengthen your legs, match your shoe with the color of the stockings you are putting on.
  • The lighter the stocking material, the easier it tears up, but transparent stockings are the perfect pick if you want to be showy.
  • Be careful not to show the top of the tight, especially if you wear short clothes with knee-high stockings.
  • Wear tighter garments with reducing stockings to bring out a refined look.
  • Some tights might be too tight to wear. If you have varicose veins or blood circulation problems, you can explore different compression stockings.
  • There are different stockings, so choose the right size and check on the table on the packaging.

Things about Stockings to Consider

  • Kimura (2017) stated that there isn't a single size for tights – There are different stockings, and not all tights will fit from small to large. Some tights come with a size table on their packaging to help you find your perfect size.
  • There are different toe options to go with different kinds of footwear.
  • For people wearing tights for the first time, consider ladder-resist tights, or you can also bore a hole in them yourself.
  • Compression stockings keep your legs from getting tired and achy. They should only be worn during the day and not in bed. 
  • Tights are gender neutral since they can be worn for many reasons. However, just like unisex clothes, some stockings are rather girlish. 
  • Before putting on stockings, consider giving them a stretch. It will get the yarn ready and mobile before you put them on and make the tight long-lasting. 
  • Scrunch the stockings one leg at a time. Keep in mind that you cannot put on tights the same way you would a pair of trousers or jeans. 
  • Be extra careful when wearing stockings, especially the nets and lace models. It is because, unlike other stockings, these can easily tear off.
  • Only wash your stockings when necessary; it is recommended that you hand wash your stockings in cold water after 5-6 years. You can also use the washing machine but wash delicately. 
  • When washing your stockings, avoid fabric softeners and use the dryer. It is because they can damage the elastane of the stockings.  

Conclusion 

When it comes to wedding stockings, color is the most important factor. However, the type of stockings will also be an important factor in the right accessory to match your gown. Whether you want to go with white to match your gown or ivory black, there is no bad choice. Think about your skin tone as a factor to consider. The type of stocking will also be a big contributor to your look. It is better to go simple than wild in terms of the design and type of stocking with wedding stockings
