These stockings are made to measure
I sew individually according to your leg measurements with an original stocking sewing machine from the 50s. The seamline is 100% identical to the original 50th ff seamed stockings.
In their design, they are inspired by the ff stockings, the stockings have the original ff nylons as a double welt and a key hole. The seam is real, it holds the stocking together and the key hole is real as well. My stockings are by no means the same as the Asian copies with fake keyholes.
What differs from the old nylons: the fabric. Here are my stockings goes with time, you'll find no 100% nylon, but a blend of 80% nylon and 20% spandex. It gives these stockings something more extensibility. However, they could not be persuaded to a wrinkle-free fit - the typical folding of the stockings nylons show as well. So this is not a quality defect, but my stockings want to be like their originals;-).
The fabric is fine, it's only slightly glossy and stands in the leg by a uniform density forth. On the strength of the stockings are approximately 40 denier. Especially in these seamed stockings is the durability and the very low tendency to laddering or pulled threads.
As an endurance test as you can with nail scissors pierce a hole in the stockings - then pull the fabric in all directions and it will hardly run a run.
For the stockings suspenders are absolutely suitable.
To decrease your dimensions you should call your self a tape measure and does not shy away from the considerable difficulty of measuring.
