The best advice I can give you is no matter which style you prefer BUY TWO PAIRS !!!! This isn't me trying to sell you more - but just imagine you do get a ladder or something goes wrong... a £12 pair of stockings spoiling your look, not worth the risk in my book. There are some subtle differences in the range, which can best be summarised as below:
Lace Top Bridal Stockings and Hold-Ups. I sell more of these than anything else and they are the traditional bridal hosiery choice. They have a luxurious deep lace band at the top with gives a great look and feel.
Open Toe Hold-Ups and Tights: These have a completely open toe. The bottom of the hold-up or tights is held in place by a subtle band of elasticated silicone (much like the one at the top of the hold-ups). They look great in open or peep toe shoes, and are only available in a natural colour.
Sandal Toe Hold-Ups and Tights. These have a toe that has no re-inforcement - so they do not have the darker re-inforced area at the end of the toe, it has the tinyest of seams at the end - which is pretty much invisible. This gives a very natural look in open or peep toe shoes - if you prefer not to go down the open toe route.
