Ivybridge, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 17, 2009 -- Christmas is traditionally the time when children hang a stocking on the hearth in the hope that Santa will fill it with goodies but sadly us adults need to create our own Christmas surprises to brighten up the dark winter nights and the gloom of the credit crunch.
It's no surprise then that there has been a massive resurgence in sales of ladies hosiery as net stockings, suspenders, fishnet stockings et al represent a cheap and easy way of styling up an existing outfit on the cheap or, better still, bring a little sexy zest into the bedroom!
Devon-based online and mail order lingerie specialists Wickedelic Lingerie are expecting bumper sales as they now carry over 100 different lines of stockings, suspenders, tights, leggings and fishnets in nylon and slinky silk.
Chief buyer Sonia Jeffery explains: "Our shelves are bulging with thousands of hosiery items ranging from the traditional fully fitted nylons of yesteryear to the hottest fashion tights and leggings.
âAnd of course Christmas is the time when the chaps like to buy their ladies a little sexy something so we see a massive increase in sales of suspender tights and stockings, suspender belts and garters."
The trend towards sexy hosiery [http://www.wickedeliclingerie.co.uk/hosiery/] has been reinforced by the very public display of stockings as a fashion statement by celebrities with the likes of Lilly Allen, Rihanna and Katy Perry all strutting their stuff and flashing their stocking tops.
Wickedelic Lingerie also contributes to the Christmas cheer by offering a free garter with all sales of stockings this winter as Sonia elaborates: "A garter is a lovely way to punctuate a lovely leg encased in sheer nylons - especially our best selling sexy black stockings [http://www.wickedeliclingerie.co.uk/hosiery/] so we offer one as a free gift to all online buyers. It's our way of saying thank you for their custom."
Stockings and hosiery seem to have hit the spot - cheap, fashionable and sexy too.
