USA Retailer Hosieree

Hosieree header

I recently came to know about a hosiery retailer based in the USA called “Hosieree.” They have been in business on-line since 2005, selling internationally, and offer a wide range of hosiery products that includes tights, stockings, thigh highs, pantyhose, leggings, socks, knee-highs, and lingerie, plus products for bridal and maternity.  Their hosiery brands are quite diverse, with names like Trasparenze, Falke, Oroblu, Fiore, Gabriella, Cecilia de Rafael, Levante, and many others (30 and growing). What’s rather unique about Hosieree, is that you can select a brand first and then view all of the product items across the available categories for just that brand.

Hosieree is male customer friendly, whether buying for a female partner or for himself.  In fact, about 30% of their business comes from male buyers.  They have an upcoming existing customer Winter Sale Event that the owner has allowed me to post here.
