Hosiery can be practical, whimsical, multi-tasking, or warm; depending on your style or needs and the time of year, your demand for the item will certainly vary. AlexBlake.com, the U.S. sister sister of the European MyTights.com has an extensive array of selections (for example, the company supplied the info to us that there are currently 568 hosiery products on sale!!) to satisfy your every want and need when it comes to leg coverage, including categories such as extra tall, plus size, maternity, support, and bridal hosiery.
The site mixes in hard to find European favorites like Pretty Polly (my new favorite!), Jonathan Aston, Emilio Cavallini (another one of my faves!), Trasparenze with tried and true favorites such as Hue, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, and Hanes. Courtesy of the site, I tried the Pretty Polly tights and House of Holland tights, which I had only read about and had searched for in the past, without any luck of actually making a purchase. The tights were all that I had built them up to be in my mind, provoking gushing and comments from everyone who noticed them thanks to their eyecatching inlaid designs as well as 3-D detailing like affixed sequins and bows!
