I have a love-hate relationship with stockings. While they definitely add a finishing touch to outfits, they can also be a nightmare. If you've ever worn stockings or tights, you've probably experienced laddering, rolling down, and the dreaded toe holes.

So, we decided to find the best stockings, pantyhose and tights out there in honour of May 15 being National Nylon Stocking Day (we didn't know it was a thing either!). 

From sexy to functional, take a look below at our roundup of 10 of the best options out there.

As a plus size person, I didn't really think there were stocking options that would fit me, let alone be comfortable. Guys. These Kix'ies are so good. They effortlessly stay up thanks to the material at the top of the stocking and don't slide down at all. It almost doesn't feel like you're wearing anything, but then you catch yourself in the mirror and remember how damn cute they make you look. I highly recommend these stockings. We love a size inclusive brand!
