Two Shades of Black

Stocking shades can be tricky business. One of the most common questions we're asked is what's the difference between black (or Jet, or Fantasy Black), and Off Black (or "Barely Black"). Simply put, black is black, taking into account how light or dark your skin is and whether the stockings are sheer or ultra sheer (all-nylon). Off black is more of a gray-ish color. Shown here are Berkshire 1550's in Fantasy Black and Off Black. The photos were taken during the same session using the same camera and the same model. As they say, results may vary, but you can at least get the idea.
