What are opera stockings?
What are opera stockings? I’m a tall woman who’s looking for stockings that will fit my long legs. I came across the term opera stockings – is this something you sell? Olivia M.
Hi Olivia! Thank you for reaching out to VienneMilano. The term opera stockings or opera length stockings are used to describe stockings that are made for tall women. Since every manufacturer has its unique way of determining sizes, there are no standards for opera stocking sizes.
VienneMilano is a hosiery brand dedicated to thigh high stockings. Since thigh highs (or stay-ups and hold-ups as they are referred to outside of the US) are not connected at the waist, thigh highs are much more versatile when it comes to sizes. In particular, our thigh highs feature a silicone band at the very top, which allows the stockings to stay up on your thigh, thus enabling you to move around comfortably. The term opera stockings is mainly relevant to hosiery connected at the waist (such as pantyhose).
While we at VienneMilano do not technically sell opera stockings, the styles from our Best Sellers Collection are available in five sizes that cover the gamut of body types. Our sizes Large, 1XLarge, 2XLarge, and 3XLarge are all fabulous for tall women (some of our best customers are over six feet tall!) To determine your hosiery size, you can check out our size chart or reach us via live chat, text (SMS) message, email or phone - we are happy to assist!
