Gatta Michelle Carnival Hold Ups

Our Review

Just two sizes to choose from in this style, defined in terms of.. well Polish terms that translate to foot length (23-25 cm or 26-26cm), crotch height or inside leg (70-74cm or 78-82cm) and thigh circumference (58-62cm or 64-68cm).  We love this type of sizing, based on relevant measurements not things like weight and hip size that are great for tights but meaningless for stockings.

There is no shaping at the heel so the foot length and inside leg can be considered additive.

Made with a sandal toe Gatta Michelle hold ups are entirely sheer from toe seam to the lace hold up top.   The lace top is 13cm (5") deep and has two silicone bands to grip your leg.

Well sizing is spot on, you can probably teal an extra 2-3cm of length too.  If you do the silicone grips well and will kep your stockings in place.

The lace is simple and elegant, light and stretchy.  Legs are sheer throughout and have perfect even colour, a look that appears far more expensive than these stockings are.

Available both as plain Michelle Hold ups or in the Carnival variation with the motif on the heel.

Highly recommended.
