Styles of Nude Hold Ups

Nude hold ups come in a variety of styles, meaning you can choose the right design and denier to suit your preferences. Among the most popular styles of nude hold ups are shiny or glossy hold ups, providing an irresistible glow while allowing your natural skin tone to shine through. Nude hold up stockings are usually a lower denier of around 8 to 20 and create a sheer yet shiny effect. Nude stay up stockings in sheer and shiny styles can also have lace top or plain top bands. Lace top hold ups feature an elegant decorative lace band at the thigh area, which offers a touch of romance and femininity. The lace trims add a subtle detail to nude hold ups and can add a sexy edge to outfits! 

 

As an alternative to lacy natural tan hold ups, plain top hold ups are a popular pick for a more casual look. This style of nude hold ups features a smooth, plain band area for a sleek and smooth fit against the skin. Wear plain top nude hold ups for everyday outings, workwear or easily dress them up with a dress and heels.

 

Nude Hold Ups FAQs

When should I wear nude hold ups?

Nude hold ups can be worn for many occasions, whether it’s a casual outing, professional workwear or evening glam. One of the advantages of natural tan hold ups is their ability to seamlessly blend with your skin tone, making them appear as if you're wearing nothing at all. This makes them a popular choice for those who want to add a hint of sensuality without overpowering their overall look. Whether you're attending a formal event or going for a casual-chic vibe, nude fishnet hold ups provide a sophisticated and refined touch to your legs, enhancing your style with subtlety and grace. Skin coloured hold-ups are also a popular choice for everyday wear due to their timeless look and subtle finishes, making them a great alternative to nude tights.  And if that wasn’t enough, nude hold ups are also a fabulous option for weddings or other special occasions to enhance the natural tone of your skin and create a beautiful airbrushed effect for bridal elegance.

Can I wear nude hold ups to work?

Absolutely. Add a touch of sophistication to your workwear with nude hold ups, for an elegant yet still professional option. Wearing nude hold up stockings for work can help provide a layer of extra coverage for additional warmth or to cover up any imperfections such as scars, tan lines or discolouration.

Can I wear nude hold ups to a wedding?

Of course! Whether you’re the beautiful bride or a glamorous wedding guest, nude hold ups are a great choice for weddings thanks to their subtle yet luxurious finish and leg-perfecting qualities. Tan hold ups are super easy to slip on under a wedding dress or wedding guest dress without causing any unnecessary shadows or digging in at the waist area.

What shoes can I wear with nude hold ups?

Nude hold ups suit a variety of shoe styles and, due to their barely-there look, can even be worn with open-toe shoes or sandals while still being discreet. Pair your nude or tan hold ups with plain court shoes or pretty pumps for a sophisticated look, or wear them with chunky loafers for a more casual everyday outfit.

How durable are nude hold ups?

While nude hold ups are typically more sheer and lightweight than both coloured hold ups and black hold ups, because of their barely-there finish, nude hold ups are still extremely durable and made to last wear after wear. All of our hold ups from leading hosiery brands are crafted with high-quality materials and durable yarns that are designed to stand the test of time. Luxury brands like Wolford, Falke and Pearl & Poseidon have long-lasting natural tan hold ups with optimum stretch and resilient materials, while not compromising on comfort or a smooth finish.

How should I put on nude hold ups?

Nude hold ups are super easy and quick to put on, as they come in 2 individual pieces that can simply be slipped on and you’re ready to go! Before you begin, make sure your nails don’t have any sharp edges that could catch on the material and remove any jewellery that may cause snags or tears. Start by gathering one of the hold ups to gently bunch the material together and slip it onto the toes, slowly rolling it up the shins and over the knee. Once you have them in your preferred position, simply adjust into place, whether you want to wear them as thigh highs or just above the knee to show a little extra skin. Our nude hold up stockings are crafted with discreet silicone and elasticated bands, allowing for a snug yet comfortable fit against the skin. Say goodbye to your hold ups twisting and slipping down with this innovative stay-up technology, giving you complete peace of mind for wearing them all day long.

How should I wash nude hold ups?

Keep your nude hold ups in tip-top condition by washing and drying them correctly, ensuring they stay as good as new wear after wear. Hold ups can either be washed in the washing machine or by hand, depending on the style and denier. Nude hold up stockings that are between 8 and 40 denier should ideally be washed by hand due to their more delicate materials. To do this, firstly fill up a bowl with mild washing detergent and lukewarm water, then place the hold ups into the bowl. Gently massage the hold ups to make sure all areas are being cleaned properly and leave them to soak for 5 to 10 minutes. Once they’ve finished soaking, remove them from the bowl and gently squeeze to release any excess moisture. Simply hang the hold ups over a clothes horse or leave them to dry on a towel until they’re completely dry. 

If your hold ups are over 40 denier, we recommend placing them into the washing machine in a pillowcase or soft storage bag, making sure to use a low heat setting and mild detergent. To prevent any snags or tears in the washing machine, do not wash them with other clothing that may have zips or detailing that could catch on the hold ups. Once you’ve washed your stockings, these can then either be dried as above or on a delicate setting in the tumble dryer. Learn more about how to wash tights.
