Stockings and suspenders are 'recession-busters'
Women wanting that little added sex appeal while still maintaining a touch of class may want to invest in stockings and suspenders, if a new poll is to be believed.

If a lovely lady wants to get the most out of her looks this month, she ought to take note of the popularity of stockings and suspenders with catwalks and celebrities around the world, it is said.

A recent study by Figleaves discovered that stockings had risen in popularity with customers by no less than 35 per cent since August, highlighting how the likes of Dita Von Teese continues to impress females with the sex appeal they can bring.

Similar retailers have reported comparable figures for suspender belts and hold-ups, alongside the obvious legwear necessary for the look, though Figleaves attributes the trend to the recession as women are wanting to make themselves feel better about their lives.

Other celebrities recently spotted in stockings include singers Lily Allen, Katy Perry and Rihanna.

Dita Von Teese recently turned heads when modelling her latest range for Wonderbra: a bunch of bras, basques and suspenders in reds and blacks.
