Christina Aguilera sets stocking sales soaring
Christina Aguilera's racy performance in film Burlesque has seen sales of racy leg wear soar, according to reports.

The rising popularity of burlesque, helped by the film and other stars such as Dita Von Teese, has seen a rise in demand for vintage stockings and other lingerie.

However, when Aguilera performed on the X Factor clad in burlesque-style tights and a black dress, the talent show received over 4,000 complaints from viewers to Ofcom.

According to underwear maker Gossard, sales of lingerie products have increased by 65 per cent during 2010.

Gossard's managing director Tony Jarvis said: "There is most definitely a rise in interest in old-school glamour in lingerie, with a modern twist which is encapsulated in this revival."

Meanwhile, The Sydney Morning Herald has advised that women wear sparkly tights this New Years Eve, for a glam start to 2011.

Party-goers could also accessorise with a statement-making piece of jewellery or a sparkly scarf, the article adds.
