What Katie Did- Fully Fashioned Stockings Navy

Fully Fashioned Stockings Navy

These glamorous seamed nylons are made on the same vintage Reading knitting machines that were used to make Fully Fashioned Stockings in the 1950's.

A Cuban Heel means that the heel doesn't taper into a point, but is a narrow rectangle. Both Cuban and Point Heel Fully Fashioned Stockings were made in the 1950's, so if you're going for an authentic vintage look it's down to your personal preference.

If you look closely you'll see the tiny picot lines, a row of dots either side of the seam which is caused during the knitting process making the leg of the stocking narrower and wider - which is where the name Fully Fashioned comes from: fashioned to fit the leg.


* These stockings are made to fit the average dress sized 12 to 16 woman (8-12 US, 40-44 European). If you are smaller than this please try the size below, and if larger please go up one size. Please do not be tempted to go up more than one size as these stockings are non stretch nylon and this will lead to wrinkly ankles!

Genuine 15 denier, Cuban Heel Fully Fashioned Stockings in deep navy blue. Made in the UK from 100% non stretch nylon.


SMALL (4'11" - 5'3")
