Fully fashioned stockings are back seam stockings that feature a welt, shadow welt, keyhole, back seam, and reinforced heel. This vintage style of stockings is meant to be worn with a garter belt.
A long time ago, stockings were made by sewing a piece of fabric (nylon, spandex, silk, wool, cotton or a blend of all of the above) cut in the shape of a leg together, thus forming a back seam. The key features of full-fashioned nylon stockings include:

Today, stockings are made by machines that are sewn in a circular motion. Pantyhose are reinforced by a gusset, and thigh highs (or stay ups and hold-ups as they are known in other parts of the world) features a silicone band to keep the hosiery up on your leg. As a result, it is not necessary to wear fully fashioned stockings with a garter belt.
