After finding the Leg Avenue brand I fell in love with their cute girly fancy dress outfits. I have several costumes and like to accessorise them with matching pieces. Leg Avenue have a huge selection of items to choose from and the naughty nurse theme is very popular, with all sorts of costumes and accessories to create your own look. There are 8 different Leg Avenue nurse themed accessories to choose from, and this includes 3 pairs of stockings. My other half is really into the medical thing, and he knows that I love Leg Avenue as my favourite fancy dress costume is their Pleather Nurse dress. He bought me the Nurse Thigh High stockings to go with it, although I suspect this was more for his pleasure than for mine!
The Nurse Thigh Highs can be directly bought from Leg Avenue online at www.legavenue.co.uk. The RRP is £6.00 on the website, which is a reasonable price for this sort of item. They are available in One Size only.
Product description: "Opaque thigh highs with bow top and nurse badge."
These thigh high stockings are available in two colour options - black with red detail or white with red detail. All of my other nurse themed items (yes, I have quite the collection!) are white background colour with red coloured details. For whatever reason, my other half decided I should have these stockings in the black and red colour way. This doesn't quite match in with everything else I own, but black is a versatile colour and the detailing helps it to still look like part of the costume if I wear other accessories to go with it.
The nurse thigh highs have a plain black opaque background. The fabric they are made of is a very dense stocking material and they are quite thick. This helps to keep the colour looking solid, although they do tend to go a little sheer over the curves of my legs, particularly around the knee area. The stockings have a slightly shiny finish to them, but are not overly glossy.
The stockings are topped with a thick band which allows you to attach suspender clips. These are not hold up stockings so you will need to team them with a suspender belt to keep them in place. At the front of the stockings there is a red satin ribbon bow detail, and a nurse badge is placed over the bow. The badge is a circular shape with a red background and a white cross in the centre. I did notice that this feels a bit scratchy and is quite stiffly held in place so it does look somewhat cheap and tacky. Still, it's all good fun and the detail is what makes the stockings fit in with the medical / nurse theme and it does add an extra finishing touch to a fancy dress costume
The stockings are of a good quality and seem very hardwearing. I have worn them a few times and the thick fabric does not snag or pull like it can on normal tights or stockings. They are thigh high and have quite a good length to them without having to be pulled and stretched to get them all the way up your legs! I found that the decorative details were securely attached and have stayed in place without pulling loose or coming away like I have experienced previously with similar items.
The naughty nurse look is incredibly popular and there is a massive load of accessories available to help you play dress up. I would recommend these stockings as they are good fun and the design is very eye catching.
Fun thigh high stockings that get 4 stars from me, would have been 5 if the nurse badge detail was a bit classier.
