Welcome to the VienneMilano Blog

The Ultimate Guide for Tights & Stockings

Hello, my name is Vienne Brown, and I am the Founder of VienneMilano – a luxury hosiery brand dedicated to thigh high stockings. In 2011, I created VienneMilano because I could not find stockings that would stay up on my thighs. Since then, I have launched a number of hosiery collections, wrote many articles about stockings, and have continued to follow my passion for fashion. In pursuit of building an iconic brand, I’ve come to realize that the more I know, the more there is to learn.

Follow me as I intend on creating the ultimate guide for tights and stockings. Here in the VienneMilano Blog, you will find helpful topics such as (to name a few): How to care for stockings, how to select the right hosiery style, how to determine your hosiery size, and the history of stockings. Feel free to browse our blog by using the search filter.

Did I miss something?
Please email us with any questions about tights and stockings – I would be
happy to answer your questions even if it is not related to VienneMilano.
