Girdlebound.com:  Newly revised website I revisited on 11/22/04.  They have a good selection of full-fashioned stockings, girdles, waist cinchers, garter belts, and all-in-ones.  Nice website.  Worth a look!

Magnoliahosiery.com:  This company has the best prices on true full-fashioned stockings and panties.  You can't go wrong with this company as they make the stockings in their factory in the good old U.S.A.!

Oldnylons.com:  This company is one of a number of companies selling VINTAGE full-fashioned stockings.  These are the real deal so expect to pay a lot for them!  The idea behind this type of buying experience is you choose a brand, color and size, so you need to know what kind of vintage full-fashioned stockings you are looking for and about sizing, color variations, denier/weight and so on.  More for experienced full-fashioned stocking buyers and/or collectors, rather than the novice who wants to wear them often.  Still it is not that hard to learn these things.  Like I said, these tend to be expensive.

Onehanesplace.com:  This company carries a variety of stockings and lingerie, although they do not have true full-fashioned stockings.  They now have a separate section for Plus Sizes.  I have bought products from them and shopped in their stores.  They specialize in irregulars which are usually every bit as good as first quality stock.  Sometimes, at least for me, their sizing left somewhat to be desired still I give them: 

Orchardcorset.com:  This company carries full-fashioned stockings, stockings, thigh-highs, corsets, bras, girdles.  Prices are average.  The website looks good!

PierreSilber.com:  This company carries a variety of stockings and lingerie, although they do not have true full-fashioned stockings.  They now have a separate section for Plus Sizes.  A variety of fetish items too.  Nice owner judging from email correspondence!

Pinupgirlclothing.com:  This company only used to carry custom made dresses, but since my recent visit on 11/23/04, they now carry a variety of products at reasonable prices!  They don't carry full-fashioned stockings, but they do carry pseudo or near-full-fashioned stockings and novelty stockings from Leg Avenue and similar companies.  Nice owner judging from previous email correspondence!

Sallyanncorsetshop.com:  This company, although it does not carry full-fashioned stockings, does carry stockings or thigh-high lace tops, all-in-ones, a super plus sized underwire lace bra with shaped band, other bras and longlines, corsets, cinchers, girdles, etc.  This company is transgender friendly. 

Secretsinlace.com and  Curvywoman.com:  This company carries full-fashioned European style stockings, lingerie, slips, crinolines, petticoats, bras, lingerie sets, longlines, girdles, all-in-ones, hosiery wash, etc.  Their website gets an A+ as far as an outstanding eye-candy display of sexy lingerie models in classic, stylish settings!  The friendly staff will work with you to achieve the right style and "look".  Somewhat expensive in some areas, but they do have good sales.  All in all worth the rating.  Yes I did buy some items from them.  If all you do is order their catalog for $10.00 it is $10.00 well spent!

Sexualwear.com:  This company carries pseudo full-fashioned stockings in that they are mass produced and not made on the full-fashion stocking machines.  They also have a large variety of other stockings, lingerie and many other items.  

Sexyshoes.com:  Over the years I have watched this great company, the Leslie Shoe Company, grow and grow!  It's only gotten better!  Excellent service!  Great free catalog.  Discreet packaging.  They now carry full-fashioned stockings, lingerie, accessories and great sexy high-heeled shoes.  Some shoes come in wide widths and the larger sizes making this a plus-sized and transgender friendly site as well.

Silkies.com:  This company has really grown.  Your order ships quickly.  Although they do not carry full-fashioned stockings they carry a nice selection of thigh-highs that can be used as stockings.  They used to have a unique mail-order program, (I don't know if they still do), where you were sent hosiery, a fresh supply, of hosiery you had previously selected in your last order.  They now carry other lingerie too!

Stockingirl.com:  This company features full-fashioned stockings in many styles and colors along with garter belts and other lingerie too!  Excellent website.  Pricey on some items.  Some hard-to-find colors and unusual colors as well make this site swell!

Stockingsonly.com:  This company does not carry full-fashioned stockings, but has some pseudo full-fashioned and other nice stockings for plus sizes and regular sizes.  Despite the name, they do carry other items.

Stockingstore.com:  This company carries full-fashioned stockings, pseudo full-fashioned stockings, lingerie, high-heel shoes, plus-sizes, etc.  It carries some hard-to-find old fashioned style garter belts with more than four garter straps in some larger sizes!  Worth a look!

Yo!  Before visiting Touchable, click on the Personal Currency Assistant below!  I found it easier if I put the amount in the first box, put the foreign country's currency in the next box and your currency in the last box, then simply hit "convert". You can take this currency converter with you, simply minimize it and go!

Touchable of the UK:  This wonderful website in England offers full-fashioned stockings of many different types and colors that they make using their full-fashion stocking machines.  Be sure and take the tour at the bottom of the page.  The best way and perhaps the only way to purchase their stockings is with a credit card unless you have a good bank that will get a Pounds Sterling International Money Order for you.  Also there is an extra charge for the United States-a foreign country for them!  They also make made-to-measure bras, basques/corsets/waspies, garter belts/suspenders, and panties!  Some hard to find colors make the high prices worthwhile!  Excellent website!

Vicki's Nylons:  This wonderful company supplies authentic full-fashioned stockings and other items at a good price!  They are very friendly and work with customers to achieve the best look for the customer. 

Wildfree.com: aka Wild Syde:  This company, although it does not have True full-fashioned stockings, does have a good selection of stockings at VERY LOW PRICES!  That makes them cool in my book! LOL!  They also have a good selection of lingerie and high-heel shoes among other things.
