Will return stockings seduced

Hidden from view they may be, but surely there’s no mistaking the type of woman who chooses stockings over tights? 

Indeed, a piece in style bible Vogue recently said: ‘A woman’s attitude towards tights is the ultimate personality litmus test.’

There’s more choice in the shops than ever before, but is it really so easy to tell who wears what? Helen Carroll asked five women to reveal their secrets.

Lindy Gallagher, 54, runs an estate agency with her partner Simon, 36, in Cirencester, Glos. Lindy says:

I do a lot of public speaking and there’s something that’s empowering about standing before a room full of people and being the only one who knows I’m wearing stockings.

They remind me I’m a woman in what is still predominantly a man’s world. That’s certainly a great confidence boost. About three times a year, I spend £220 on a set of matching bra, knickers and suspenders.

They feel like a secret indulgence — other women in their 50s might choose Botox, but my anti-ageing weapon is beautiful underwear and sexy stockings.

I’ve been wearing them since I was 16, hidden beneath my ugly, green school uniform. It felt like a secret act of rebellion.

My partner doesn’t have a big thing about stockings, though he does compliment me on how I look.

I’m a size 8 to 10 and, if I’m honest, I probably wouldn’t wear stockings if I was overweight.

Sunita Andrea, 33, works in the financial services industry and is married to Danny, 49, who runs a chain of coffee shops. The couple have a ten-month-old son, Hari, and live in Surrey. Sunita says:

I’ve worn stockings for all occasions over the past five years, since discovering how much more comfortable they are than tights — and how much sexier I feel in them.

A lot of my friends live in trousers and jeans, but I love skirts, dresses and heels — and my legs are my best feature.

My husband is the only person who sees my stockings, and I like it that way: they’re our little secret. And, of course, he loves stockings and suspenders — what man doesn’t?

I also think they’re a lot more hygienic.

The lingerie department is one of my favourite places in any department store and I spend up to £20 on each pair of stockings — about £160 a year.

I gave birth to my son last April and knew that I was finally back to my old self when, just a few weeks later, I pulled on my favourite Jane Norman dress, Kurt Geiger heels and, of course, Wolford stockings.

I went out to a restaurant feeling like the sexy woman I’d been before pregnancy.

Tessa wears tights regularly but can count on one hand the number of times she has worn suspenders

Tessa Broadhead, 48, lives in Hampshire with her partner and their four children, aged from 23 to 12. Tessa says:

I defy anyone who sees me in a pair of tights, with sexy underwear, to tell me I don’t look attractive. The spandex in them also flattens my stomach and bottom whereas stockings and hold-ups don’t have that capacity.

Worse still, because stockings don’t go all the way up to the waist, unless you’re stick thin, your thighs are likely to spill over the top.

Falke and Aristoc are my favourite brands and I think high sheen gloss tights, in a 15 or 20 denier, look just beautiful. In the depths of winter, I go for 60-denier opaque — stockings just wouldn’t keep the cold out.
