  3. Choose the density according to the season and clothes. With a woolen dress to the knee and ankle boots need more dense, and to the evening dress of silk - thin, transparent stockings.

Some brides refuse them in favor of more comfortable pantyhose. But the joy and delight of the groom compensates for minor inconveniences.
