Sweet Nothings 3rd Anniversary Giveaway: Stockingirl

Today we have not one, but TWO lovely giveaways for you! Don’t miss out on the beautiful lace suspender belt giveaway from NYC-based The Giving Bride here.

Sweet Nothings previews the Angela Friedman Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

I’ve been a fan of Stockingirl pretty much since I realized that I hated tights (down with waistbands!) and wanted to wear stockings and thigh highs forever. What REALLY won me over, of course, was the fact that several pairs are available with customization so you can put your name on them (see the Cheryl stockings, modeled above my moi), but there’s so much more!

    I love that with stocking you don’t have the waist band cutting in, and I feel very feminine in them!

  2. Nicole F.
    May 7, 2015 at 1:33 am (8 years ago)

    There’re the epitome of classy elegance. Nothing better 🙂

    Wearing pantyhose makes me feel old, stockings feel seductive

  4. Laura Brasinha
    May 7, 2015 at 6:01 am (8 years ago)

    What I love the most about wearing classic stockings is feeling really, really sassy! Even walking looks waaaay better!

  5. Marisa S.
    May 7, 2015 at 6:21 am (8 years ago)

    Great shop! This has been easy, I’m getting married next month, and I really love the Custom Wedding Legwear whith both names or date.

  6. Jess
    May 7, 2015 at 6:33 am (8 years ago)

    I loooove not having a super high, super tight waist band cutting in. I also love how they look with “bedroom” lingerie 😉

  7. Liz
    May 7, 2015 at 6:37 am (8 years ago)

    Wow! Clearly I’m missing out! I’ve never worn stockings, but hate the wristband, etc. Looks like I need to invest in some stockings.

  8. denocte
    May 7, 2015 at 7:47 am (8 years ago)

    omg there’s the option to personalize your stockings? neeed! so, if I won, I’d pick those and get “bow down” written on them. stockings over pantyhose forever.

    • Sweets
      May 7, 2015 at 11:03 am (8 years ago)

      Please please please please get those stockings, that is the best idea

  9. Andra-Maria
    May 7, 2015 at 8:06 am (8 years ago)

    I love a lot of things about stockings. Nylon stockings have a nice texture. Because of the garterbelt, they don’t keep falling down in slow motion, and there’s no insanely high waist band (I once tried to pull it over my boobs. It didn’t even cut in). Also, no sweaty butt, I feel like this should be mentioned.
    On a different note, look at all the colours! I wanna eat them all 🙂

  10. Sophie
    May 7, 2015 at 8:31 am (8 years ago)

    I actually don’t wear stockings very often because the ones I own(ed) were always quite cheap ones that were just of an awful quality.
    But I like the way of feeling classy and sexy at the same time!

  11. Lisa C
    May 7, 2015 at 8:40 am (8 years ago)

    I love that stockings are more flattering and sexy than tights! More confortable too.

  12. Michele F
    May 7, 2015 at 8:46 am (8 years ago)

    I don’t wear stockings very often, but when I do, I love the way my legs feel!!! I just can’t stop from rubbing my hands over that nylon goodness!

  13. Kristina
    May 7, 2015 at 9:10 am (8 years ago)

    Classic glamour. And not that many women wear them anymore, so I feel like it’s a little surprise for your partner.

  14. C
    May 7, 2015 at 9:12 am (8 years ago)

    I haven’t worn stockings yet, but really have been wanting to! I feel like I’d secretly feel like such a badass knowing I was wearing them all day.

  15. Wytch
    May 7, 2015 at 10:03 am (8 years ago)

    I feel like such a femme fatale wearing them!

  16. Valette
    May 7, 2015 at 11:06 am (8 years ago)

    I love that no one else can tell they are stockings. They’re my little secret (unless I choose to share).

  17. Katharine
    May 7, 2015 at 12:00 pm (8 years ago)

    I have never worn them but I would love to try!

  18. Nanci cope
    May 7, 2015 at 12:07 pm (8 years ago)

    Growing up in a semi tropic climate I love the extra air flow stockings give, if you want the look of hose but don’t want to swelter

  19. Abby
    May 7, 2015 at 12:14 pm (8 years ago)

    I love how sexy I feel in thigh highs. Not to mention the ease with which I can use the ladies room when I wear them

  20. Missy M.
    May 7, 2015 at 12:21 pm (8 years ago)

    I love the way they feel

  21. Tabitha
    May 7, 2015 at 1:39 pm (8 years ago)

    I love that they are a classic sexy look.

  22. Rachelle
    May 7, 2015 at 1:54 pm (8 years ago)

    I love wearing stockings because I hate their waistbands AND I feel like I constantly have to adjust tights-they are just never comfortable.

  23. Estelle
    May 7, 2015 at 2:08 pm (8 years ago)

    I just love how they look. They don’t cover pretty knickers up so extra gorgeous points!

  24. Haley
    May 7, 2015 at 2:23 pm (8 years ago)

    I love the classic, put together look of bra/knickers/garter belt and stockings. It makes me feel glamorous!

  25. Jodi
    May 7, 2015 at 2:28 pm (8 years ago)

    My favorite thing about wearing classic stockings is how pretty I feel all day.

  26. Antonia
    May 7, 2015 at 3:41 pm (8 years ago)

    I don’t wear them often, but when I do, I love that I don’t have to worry about waistbands cutting in and that they add a touch of sassy class.

  27. Antonia
    May 7, 2015 at 3:43 pm (8 years ago)

    (P.S. Just a heads up – the Stockingirl Facebook link seems to be broken.)

    • Sweets
      May 7, 2015 at 4:06 pm (8 years ago)

      Arrrghhh Facebook whyyyy? You’re the second person to tell me this, and I’m baffled– I’ve looked at it on several devices and browsers and it’s working fine for me, and I’m so irritated it’s not working for my readers. Facebook why are you being terrible?

  28. Logan
    May 7, 2015 at 5:19 pm (8 years ago)

    Oh gosh, how to pick a favorite thing… As an avid tights hater, I love stockings for all the things that tights are not — like not having to adjust them all day!

  29. Michele
    May 7, 2015 at 5:22 pm (8 years ago)

    I love that they feel super feminine

  30. Madison
    May 7, 2015 at 5:38 pm (8 years ago)

    I love that they feel sexy and classy at the same time.

  31. Estelle
    May 7, 2015 at 8:36 pm (8 years ago)

    my favourite is the Avery Cuban Heel Seamed Stockings in Emerald for a splash of color but not overwhelming

  32. Lisa C.
    May 7, 2015 at 8:37 pm (8 years ago)

    I love how they are comfortable, sexy and classic! 🙂

  33. Estelle
    May 7, 2015 at 8:38 pm (8 years ago)

    with tights I like that with a well fitting pair I don’t have to worry, As much, that they are rolling down as with thigh highs.

  34. Emily
    May 7, 2015 at 9:52 pm (8 years ago)

    I’ve never worn classic stockings before, but I’m in if they’re more comfortable AND you can put your name on them

  35. Karrie
    May 7, 2015 at 10:07 pm (8 years ago)

    I love the look and feel of them

  36. Leah
    May 7, 2015 at 10:17 pm (8 years ago)

    Wearing something that was a mundane and commonplace item 50 years ago because I want to, and feeling classy and gorgeous.

  37. rose
    May 8, 2015 at 1:50 am (8 years ago)

    They’re pretty.

  38. Nicole F.
    May 8, 2015 at 7:21 am (8 years ago)

    kinda bummed silk stockings are excluded made me change first pick

  39. Ana
    May 8, 2015 at 11:18 am (8 years ago)

    My favorite thing is the freedom of having your legs covered but nothing squeezing the bum, belly and lady parts and getting in uncomfortable places (can you tell I don’t like tights? :P).

  40. Katy C Johnston
    May 8, 2015 at 11:27 am (8 years ago)

    They’re classic, sexy style 🙂

  41. Amanda
    May 8, 2015 at 11:28 am (8 years ago)

    I love wearing stalkings because they’re like a sexy little secret under your clothes. Everyone assumes they’re just regular panty hose, but only I (and maybe a lucky guy) know the truth. ;D

  42. Sallyanne Gooch
    May 8, 2015 at 12:26 pm (8 years ago)

    I love the fact my other half knows I have them on when we go out but can’t get to them til we get home

  43. Madilyn Guith
    May 8, 2015 at 1:51 pm (8 years ago)

    I love how they make me feel like a sexy goddess!

  44. Amber
    May 8, 2015 at 2:27 pm (8 years ago)

    Love how versatile they are, and that they can be dresses in a vintage way, or paired with a classic modern lingerie set.

  45. Beth D
    May 8, 2015 at 2:39 pm (8 years ago)

    I love them because they’re comfortable and they are fun to wear and experiment with.

  46. Ilse
    May 8, 2015 at 3:11 pm (8 years ago)

    Classic stockings are great because they make me feel super sexy and because of that I feel super confident while wearing them. It’s like my own little secret when I’m wearing them out and a little present when I’m wearing them in the bedroom.

  47. Pia J.
    May 8, 2015 at 3:21 pm (8 years ago)

    I love stockings because they’re so much more practical and comfortable than tights, and they also look sexy at the same time!

  48. Kathryne
    May 8, 2015 at 4:49 pm (8 years ago)

    There are so many great things about stockings like how flattering they are and above all else how comfortable they are over tights!

  49. Florence
    May 8, 2015 at 5:07 pm (8 years ago)

    Honestly? My reason isn’t very classy at all but GODDAMN TIGHTS MAKE MY BUTT SO ITCHY! Stockings >>>>> tights. Plus that means I get to wear garters.

  50. iain maciver
    May 8, 2015 at 5:28 pm (8 years ago)

    love the classic, put together look of bra/knickers/garter belt and stockings

  51. Holly E
    May 8, 2015 at 7:15 pm (8 years ago)

    I like that classic stockings are lovely and sexy.

  52. Jess
    May 8, 2015 at 8:32 pm (8 years ago)

    The straps and lace work for me!

  53. Liberty
    May 8, 2015 at 11:47 pm (8 years ago)

    I love the classic appeal of stockings, the elegance they impart to anything that you wear them with.

  54. Tanya
    May 9, 2015 at 1:50 am (8 years ago)

    Classic stockings give you a special flirty mood. And also they are good for summer!

  55. claire woods

  56. Joanne Beale

  57. Jo

    Love the way they feel

  58. Kara
    May 9, 2015 at 11:54 am (8 years ago)

    I love the act of putting them on; fastening the garter tabs. They just make me feel good! No awkward tights line/rolling down either.

  59. Natalie Crossan
    May 9, 2015 at 6:48 pm (8 years ago)

    They make you feel really sexy

  60. Caity
    May 9, 2015 at 8:59 pm (8 years ago)

    Putting on stockings is like putting on battle armor. They make me feel powerfully sexy.

  61. Shannon
    May 10, 2015 at 1:33 am (8 years ago)

    I love the little glimpse of lace I can give to someone if I so choose, and on a more practical level, I love not having to deal with the drop-crotch issue of nylons/tights.

  62. va
    May 10, 2015 at 5:04 am (8 years ago)

    u can take them off like socks and they keep your legs warm in the winter

  63. Katie Kingsbury
    May 10, 2015 at 6:05 am (8 years ago)

  69. Theresa
    May 10, 2015 at 10:06 pm (8 years ago)

    My favorite thing about wearing classic stocking will be wearing them for the first time when I win this giveaway (positive thinking here)! I’ve worn the kind that are supposed to stay up on their own but don’t really. I’d love to wear real ones because I’m with you, Sweets. Down with waistbands!

  70. Natasha Manchester
    May 11, 2015 at 10:09 am (8 years ago)

    They are classy and they are sexy.

  71. Sian Widdowson

    I would only say that I love how they make my legs.look and feel. With the right lingerie clstockings finish the outfit.

  74. Avigayil
    May 11, 2015 at 3:40 pm (8 years ago)

    I think my favourite thing about wearing classic stockings is the elegance factor.They make me feel so feminine and so elegant!

  75. Trish
    May 11, 2015 at 6:39 pm (8 years ago)

    I love the feel and look of fully fashioned stockings and they aren’t as warm in the summer.

  76. Rachel S.
    May 12, 2015 at 12:09 am (8 years ago)

    I’ve never actually worn classic stockings before, but I’d love to get my hands on a pair to start 😉

    The way they are sized to fit perfectly!

  80. Aaron

    I do not wear classic stockings myself =) I’d like to win them for a special friend. She’d look great in them!

  81. Brittney House

  84. Laura E.
    May 13, 2015 at 8:56 am (8 years ago)

    Stockings are just utterly gorgeous, sexy, classic, and feminine. Would love to get my mitts on some of these!

  85. Mary
    May 13, 2015 at 9:58 am (8 years ago)

    I haven’t worn classic stockings much, honestly–I tend to actually like control-top, because I’m a weirdo and also a masochist. But I love the idea, because I love taking garments that we’ve grown accustomed to think of as “disposable” and returning them to the category of “precious.” If you read books from the 20s (aka Dorothy L Sayers, read her, she’s the best), you come to realize that women took really good care of their stockings back then–they had to, because they were expensive and delicate and necessary. I think too much of what’s in our life is easily disposable. Let’s all have nice things and take care of them.

  86. Sophie
    May 13, 2015 at 4:20 pm (8 years ago)

    I love stocking cause they don’t roll don’t like tights! So comfy and sexy 😉

  87. Emily
    May 13, 2015 at 4:48 pm (8 years ago)

    Hmm- my favorite thing is how sexy I feel in a garter belt and stockings- it feels risque, but they can be worn under suit-skirts to work and look just like normal tights. It’s my own little secret.

    I also love how soft and smooth good stockings feel against my skin. Ever tried Wolford Velvets? They’re sooo soft. And way expensive, but I have one pair.


  88. Tari Lawson
    May 13, 2015 at 5:40 pm (8 years ago)

    I like the reaction I get from my husband ;).

  89. Danielle
    May 13, 2015 at 6:05 pm (8 years ago)

    I have wanted to try them for a while. With tights, I have trouble with drooping crotches and waistbands digging in.

    May 13, 2015 at 9:41 pm (8 years ago)

  93. Susan B
    May 14, 2015 at 5:59 am (8 years ago)

    Sexy and confident from my underwear out! I used to wear them for just for date nights but soon realised how great I felt wearing them in the office, too.

  94. Laura Pritchard
    May 14, 2015 at 6:56 am (8 years ago)

    I feel like a lady rather than a girl when I wear them.

  95. Ashley C
    May 14, 2015 at 7:19 am (8 years ago)

    I love that they are way more comfortable, easier to put on and easier to take off

    I love feeling classic. If that makes much sense, it brings a bit of the past into the present.

  104. Laura
    May 14, 2015 at 11:38 pm (8 years ago)

    I love the feeling of elegance they convey! I do not feel a lot of that in day to day life.
