Fully-fashioned stockings are the back-seam stockings which feature shadow welt, welt, keyhole, reinforced heel and back seam. This vintage-style of stockings are to be worn with garter belts and look immensely appealing.

A Quick History of Fully fashioned Stockings:

There was a time long age when these stockings were made by just sewing certain pieces of fabrics like spandex, silk, wool, cotton, nylon and more). They were used to cut in the perfect shape of leg and used to form a back-seam. The key features of these stockings are as follows:


Traditionally full fashion stockings are knitted from the top-down. Top of these stockings is known as welt which is created by stitching two layers of the fabric together. As a result of this, welt tends to be darker than remaining hosiery.

Shadow Welt:

A shadow-welt is created just below the welt where only a single layer of fabric is used for creating them. The purpose of shadow-welt is to transition the welt to the remaining stockings

Key Hole:

The top of the stockings are folded and sewn back on itself and a distinct hole is created at the back of the stockings. This hole is known as keyhole.


Since these types of stockings are sewn together, it forms a back seam.

Reinforced Heel:

A darkened area around the heel is created which secures the sole and heel of the stockings together. This area is known as reinforced heel.

Vintage Style Stockings:

These days, stockings are made with the help of machines and are sewn meticulously in circular motion. There are pantyhose that are reinforced by thigh highs and a gusset.
