I wasn't sure if I should give 4 or 5 stars because this item is EXACTLY as described, and exactly what you'd expect for the price. However, I can tell that it would be very easy to tear these. That's just the nature of sheer nylon fabric.
Anyway, I ordered two of these in different colors. I ordered one red pair and one white pair. They came in different packages, but they are the same brand and I did not notice any difference in the actual products. The color is very true to the pictures. I find that a lot of people have different shades of red and it is a pain to make everything match in red when I order online. The red ones were true red, the type you would expect to see on the US flag. They were not burgundy. It's nice to take the guesswork out of these.
I am 5'3" (160 centimeters) and weigh 130-135 pounds. I wear around a size 5-6 medium in jeans. These did stay up without garters and I would feel fine wearing these to church or any formal event without pulling them up every two seconds. If you're going to be walking around a ton in them I would recommend garters, but if you're just wearing them in the bedroom they aren't going to be necessary. (;
Originally I thought they just glued the ribbons onto the stockings. However, upon closer inspection it does look like they used some embroidery thread to stitch these on. That's nice. Unfortunately, it looks like there's only one stitch and it would be easy to loose a bow. I would recommend re-reinforcing these with thread if you want the bows to stick around. On the plus side, it would be easy to snip the bows off if you wanted a neutral stocking without bells and whistles.
Pros: Color is true to pictures. Bows are stitched on and easy to remove if you choose. Thy will stay up without garters. Price means you can buy as many as you want.
Cons: Nylon, in general, tears easily. These would be easy to create a run in if you do not treat them like God's precious creation. They are very fragile.
