I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Dita has her own stockings brand. But where to buy them? Secrets in Lace of course! In fact, Secrets in Lace has the largest selection of full fashioned stockings in the world!
But what are the advantages of wearing full fashioned stockings?
Anyone who has worn regular stockings with stretch lycra and faux seams, even for just a few hours, knows how hard it is to keep those seams straight. It can get annoying having to constantly fix your stockings. Full fashioned stockings are more stable and your seams will stay straight. Remember they are made of non-stretch nylon, therefore they do not stretch! They are shaped to the leg and you will need to buy the proper size for your leg, else if you stretch them, they will start to slide down. You will be able to tell the difference between real nylon stockings and shitty .99 cent store lycra stockings!
Secrets in Lace brand is not available in stores. They’ve resisted requests from large retailers and only sell by catalog and their website. Dita Von Teese herself is a customer, and chose the brand to create her line because she trusted the company’s knowledge and experience with full fashioned stockings.

Q. What made you want to do your own line of signature stockings, your Secrets In Lace Dita Collection?
A. “I have been obsessed with seamed stockings my whole life, and I would collect vintage ones that were made in the ’40s and ’50s with the authentic styling of the keyhole, the welt, the reinforced toe and heels, French or Cuban heels, and hand-stitched seams. I can’t stand faux-seamed stockings with lycra — you lose the sensual feeling of the fabric. So, I began shopping with Secrets In Lace, and together we made the ultimate fancy-styled seamed stocking.”
The website offers Dita’s brand of stockings in five different sizes (P, S, M, L, Opera) in French Heel (Black or Beige) and Glamour French Heel (Beige or Grey).
But what makes this store different?
Secrets in Lace’s full fashioned nylon stockings are manufactured on the same machines used in the 40’s and 50’s, and made in the same way – they are knit flat and sewn together with a backseam. The finishing hole and imprint found on the welt complete the glamorous stockings. Fans of sheer stockings will be thrilled to learn that Secrets in Lace also has the largest selection of finer denier stockings (10 denier and 7 denier). Secrets in Lace also has the only true 10 denier fully fashioned stockings in the world. With a variety of heel styles and reinforcements, anyone can find exactly what he or she is looking for.
