HOLD-UPS symbol of seduction … And would you wear them?

They are the symbol of sensuality par excellence, especially if combined with a suspender belt. Of course, the lace should never be shown for any reason, elegance is first of all.

The hold-ups make the leg sensual, elegant and sexy.

The boom of the hold-ups came in the 80s with the miniskirt which gave way to a breakthrough to women’s clothing.

Before then the socks were handmade, they had no silicone and were worn with a garter belt since the 1930.

If you love lace, wear your hold-ups or stockings with suspender or garter belt

under soft clothes and baggy pants, because the lace effect under tight clothes is not at all nice to see.

Pay close attention to the size and the top as without silicone they tend to roll up if they are too tight.

If you have soft shapes, you can choose the “Curvy” hold-ups with more comfortable sizes that will allow you to feel at ease and very sexy.

For important dinners and functions the stockings must be sheer, fifteen or twenty denier are the best deniers to go for.

Choose the flowery, polka dots or geometric patterns according to your physicality. As a rule, the hold-up must always be lighter than the shoe. As for the plain coloured opaque products, instead, make fun with the colours, at the end a colourful stocking gives a touch of life even in the most worn out dress.

Take care of the silicone part which, if properly held and washed, will last for a long time.

We recommend washing the hold-up by hand with neutral soap as the silicone must not get abrasions. For the best fit, avoid using cosmetics or powder talc before wearing the hold-up in order to keep the silicone lace-band well fitted.

Occasionally, lightly rub the silicone bands with cotton soaked in alcohol to clean and restore the original adherence of the bands.

The top of the hold-up must be kept in the thigh area and not up to the groin and the best fit for comfort is at least 3 – 4 cm under the buttocks.
