If you find yourself constantly yanking up your tights, respositioning your stockings, or clinging onto your hold-ups for dear life, then it's (thigh) high time you considered grabbing yourself a pair of Kix'ies.
Hailing from the USA, Kix'ies Thigh Highs are a fun, retro-inspired brand of hold-up stockings that look amazing, feel sublime - and actually stay put!
Sized by height, weight, and thigh circumference rather than dress size for the finest fit, they're topped with three slim strips of silicone that keep them holding firm all day long.
Given their tons of glowing customer reviews, I thought it was about time that we put Kix'ies to the test, and with the help of Jess, Sally, and Tilly, put them through their paces in a gruelling day at the Lovehoney warehouse.
The results? Well, you'll have to take a look to find out!
Scroll down to see the top reasons why you should add a pair (or five) of Kix'ies to your hosiery collection, and to see our complete range.
Why Should I Choose Kix'ies?
The four Kix'ies sizes (A, B, C, and D) are grouped according to weight, thigh circumference, and height, meaning that they're specifically tailored to the length and width of your legs rather than your dress size for a flawless fit.
So if you've struggled with finding the perfect hosiery size in the past, make sure you check out the Kix'ies size chart beneath the longer product description so that you know just which size you should be opting for.
"As these holdups are sold according to thigh size and not the regular s/m/l etc, it's a lot easier to get an appropriate fit, which makes these some of the most flattering hold-ups in my collection. " - CocoGirl
We currently offer five different Kix'ies styles so that you can always find the perfect pair for your outfit.
Each design features the trademark Kix'ies silicone-lined horizontal bands at the top, which give a comfortable and breathable fit even when you're wearing them for hours on end.
"I really liked the striped design on the tops, how they show your skin through them and how they stay up so well. " - Frisky-Girl
Kix'ies are a great alternative for those of us who find tights an uncomfortable option for daily wear.
Unlike your standard supermarket tights, they don't give that unsightly crotch hammock beneath your hemline that can ruin a carefully-thought-through outfit.
Plus, if you do need to adjust the fit or hold of your Kix'ies, you'll look like an Elvgren pin-up doing so rather than having to hoik in an undignified manner at your waistband, or trying to lunge to pull them back up.
"I would definitely want to buy more of them in different styles because I really believe that they're going to last a long time and be a great investment in a more interesting alternative to tights or leggings that boost your self-esteem and confidence. " - Skitty
