Australia features a number of hosiery brands that are rather popular in their land, but not very well known in the USA or Europe. The two foremost that I’ve come to learn about are Leona Edmiston and Voodoo Hosiery. Voodoo is a trademark of Pacific Brands Hosiery Group, an enormous conglomerate of 37 brands that includes the likes of Clarks, Dunlop, Everlast, Jockey, Slazenger, and Rio to name a few.
When I spotted Voodoo and discovered a retailer that makes their products available to customers in the USA, I browsed this hosiery line and found this terrific looking “totally opaque” style that intrigued me. Upon reading about Voodoo hosiery sizing charts, I found that their XL size is supposed to support 85+kg (188lbs) and 185+cm (6′). Since the large size maximum measurements are 180kg and 80cm, I figured that the XL size would accommodate 95kg. And so I ordered a pair of their “totally opaque” 120 denier style. They do offer a “voluptuous” version of the 120 denier totally opaque designed for the fuller figure, but the height tops out at 179cm. There is also a 200 denier style, but from what I could see the weave density had a slightly less opaque appearance at the bending knee.
The packaging is your typical hang-tag design, but the thick cardboard wrapping has a glossy finish with an attractive image on the front:
