Unfortunately I received these and were not at all what I expected. The color was completely different from what was pictured. However, Helen handled the situation and refunded me for the mix up. I appreciate that immensely and her customer service. Thank you, Helen.

About

Breaking the Seams...

Well...
It wasn't like I planned to have an online hosiery store, but I ended up with one.
One Sunday afternoon, I received a phone call from a old school friend. Someone who hadn't called me in about 10 years. He'd called me to tell me that his friend who sells hosiery was closing down her business, and that she had a bunch of stockings she wanted to get rid of. Well he said Lingerie.. but as he is a man... he had no idea!

I was more shocked that he called me, than of the opportunity he was presenting me. The only problem was they stock was 1200kms away! But as synchronicity would have it, I was the very next day flying to that exact destination!

So next day, on a plane, I arrived in Sydney at 9am, dropped my bags at my brothers and set out on another 2 hours of public transport to go and see this opportunity and the woman said... it all had to go by Sunday. So looking in all boxes filled with lots of colourful stockings... but mainly white... I said.. what if I take them all?

'All of them?' she said... and I said why not?.. I'd been looking for a simple product, I could easily sell and add my own twist to it.

So I got on the phone, made a few calls, hired a van and within 3 hours of landing in Sydney, I'd moved over 5,000 pairs of patterned socks & stockings! So I guess it was ment to be!

I was ment to reinvent her old business of hand dying stockings into fashionable colours. The dye process can be a tricky task, as not all nylon has the same tenacity and not all dyes come out like the packet, but I guess that just adds to the uniqueness of my product.

So who would of thought, one day, one phone call, one plane trip, could result in a new business venture, that was so not on my radar.

I love sending out my wares to all my customers, as I know that each person is unique as the product they buy. My product isn't your run of the mill, latest fashion. It's for creative crafty, arty people, who like to stand out from the crowd. Girls who like to dress in vintage subcultures and for kooky passionate people about cartoon character dress up..... And then there is also the girl who just loves a dress up, new outfit and to find something no-one else has seen.

So while you peruse my store... have fun, daydream & ask questions.

Talk soon

Helen :)

P.S. 'The photos!'... they are my legs...you can laugh, some funny feet poses, some dicky shoes.. but oh! well... lol

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

The sizing of all stockings depends on the denier of the nylon. Some nylons are softer than others, which means they stretch more and able to go to bigger sizes. I have uploaded a size guide to each listing to help you out with that. :)
