Thigh-High Stockings or Thigh Highs and Thigh High Hold-Ups can work great on their own or can be used with garters, it depends on your personal preference. Many stockings which call themselves Thigh Highs may not be able to keep themselves up. There are many styles from which to
choose, including patterned, or plain, in sheer, ultra-sheer or
opaque. Thigh-highs are also available with many top welt options, like lace, ribbed,
elastic, or with silicone on the inside of the welt. These silicone grabbers really hold thigh highs up without any out side assistance. Vertical and horizontal stripes, lace mesh, fishnet and sheer seamed
stockings make an interesting alternative for special occasions. Younger women seem to appreciate the Hold-up stockings more because of the simplicity in wearing and the wide range in fashion and styles.
