Thanks to modern manufacturing techniques and fabrics, lace hosiery can be as durable and affordable as it is beautiful. Lace stockings, tights or pantyhose add an indefinable touch of femininity and elegance to any outfit. Lace is an openwork fabric, that, in modern hosiery, is usually part of the backing fabric. This allows for intricate scrollwork and lace floral patterns that are budget-friendly and durable. Sheer thigh-high stockings are often topped with a wide band of lace with hidden silicone grippers to keep stockings in place.
