At VienneMilano, we are obsessed with thigh high stockings; We think about wearing thigh highs, we talk about it, and we indeed dream about it as well. Let us share our passion for this must-have accessory in our fashion infographic.

What Are Thigh Highs?

Thigh highs are stockings that come up to the top of your thighs and are held in place by a sturdy silicone band which eliminates the need for a garter belt. They are also called stay ups and hold ups.

Why Should I Wear Thigh Highs?

You are fabulous. Thigh highs are fabulous. You can be even more fabulous by wearing thigh high stockings - a fashion accessory that gives every woman a boost of confidence in every occasion. That said, there are three technical reasons to choose thigh highs over pantyhose:

  1. No gusset (middle area of pantyhose) means more freedom
  2. No circulation-cutting waistband means extra comfort
  3. Thigh highs leave your curves free underneath pants, dresses, or skirts for an extra boost of sensuality

When Can I Wear Thigh Highs?

Whether you're dressing for the office, an event, or just for the weekend, thigh highs can be worn for every occasion.

What About Quality?

For centuries, Italy is renown for its superior craftsmanship, sharp tailoring, luxurious designs - Italian-made hosiery are no exception. Especially consider durability - while you may only be spending only $5 per pair of stockings from other brands to save money in the short term, you'll likely be spending more again and again for that same pair over the course of one year. Luxury hosiery may run you up to $30 or more, but that could be an investment of a lifetime. Simply put, premium thigh highs are more sustainable

How Do I Wear Thigh Highs?

There are three easy steps to putting on your thigh highs:

  1. Sit down in your chair
  2. Roll your thigh high all the way to the toe
  3. Slip your thigh high onto your foot and roll your thigh high up your leg to the middle of your thigh Your thigh highs should sit one inch away from your inseam.

If you end up with a "muffin top" on your thigh, then your thigh highs are too high and should be lowered. If your thigh highs appear crumpled, then they aren't high enough. Always remember that thigh highs aren't knee highs!

Also, keep in mind, if you are wearing a pencil skirt or tight clothing, it may be best to put on your thigh highs first before getting dressed for the day.

How To Choose Stockings

At VienneMilano, we believe that legs are a canvas for color and texture, and thigh highs allow you to use that canvas. To help you decide which style of hosiery is suitable for you and for a particular occasion, we've designed an infographic. In our infographic, we focus on two attributes: your personality and the weather. Weather conditions can impact how we feel and thus our fashion decisions, making it an important variable. Hopefully, our fashion infographic can help you figure out which hose will help you create your perfect canvas!

How It Works

We have placed some of our best-selling styles into a chart divided into four quadrants. To begin, is the day you are planning your outfit for hot or cold? If it's a cold day, start on the left. If it's a hot day, start from the right. If it's a warm day, start from the middle.

Next, you'll have to decide whether you are feeling bold and confident or shy and modest. This is, of course, a simplified version of a woman's personality. We recognize that there are many other personality traits besides these two; however, we've honed in on these two traits for the sake of simplicity. Depending on how bold or shy you feel, you can navigate through our infographic by going up or down.

An Example: If you are someone who commands attention wherever you go, and it just so happens to be a cold day, we recommend wearing GIADA Art Deco pattern stockings. In contrast, if it were a cold and you were feeling shy, we recommend ANDREA opaque thigh highs. We also recommend ISABELLA sheer stockings for those who are feeling shy on a hot day.
