Dream meaning of stockings

Stockings are the garment for the lower leg, usually made of nylon, wool or cotton. In dreams, they are associated with the general perspective of the one who has the vision. Therefore, dreaming of stockings denotes the way people see you. Also, it symbolizes the type of person you are in general, and in other contexts they can represent protection or warmth from a difficult situation.

This object in a dream vision is a sign of warmth and comfort. It could indicate that you are comfortable with who you are, where you live, who you associate with or where you work. Your current lifestyle provides you with well-being and personal satisfaction. On the other hand, you may also be craving more warmth and comfort from friends and family.

Seeing stockings in dreams may be indicative of your personality. You are the type who always does things to please others. You can be flexible as a person, so you are considerate and understanding when thinking of others. You don’t dare to judge someone, without first being sure.

What does it mean to dream of stockings

Dreams with stockings show how much you protect yourself in real life. You may be an overly careful, overly cautious person and, as a result, you may be missing out on some valuable opportunities. Such opportunities may not come around again.

If you dream of stockings, this could also mean that you will see the fruits of your hard work. You have achieved most of the things you have through your own efforts, and you never expected other people to support you financially. Because of this you have learned to be independent at an early age. However, there are other interpretations of other elements associated with stockings that we will discuss below.

Dreaming of torn stockings

When you see torn stockings in a dream, it means that you will embarrass yourself in front of many people as you will participate in a conversation that you know nothing about. And instead of just listening to your friends, you will decide to be an active participant in the story, so you will say something that will make other people make fun of you. You’ll realize that your ignorance and lack of information have put you in that position, so you’ll think twice before you say something next time.

Wearing torn socks or socks with holes in your dream also suggests that you will disagree with your partner over a serious problem. These problems can cause lasting damage that will affect your trust in each other. If you are sewing or knitting torn stockings, the dream predicts that you will find a solution to such difficulty.

If it is a man who dreams of torn stockings, it indicates that he will be in bad company. If it is a woman who has holes in her stockings, this means that she should hide something in her choice, to protect herself from suspicion and jealousy. In both cases, torn stockings are not a good omen.

To dream of dirty socks

To dream of dirty socks denotes that you have feelings of sadness and guilt, caused by a moral or physical danger that threatens you. If it is another person who wears dirty socks, then the person could be in danger of losing money. If the person is a stranger, it indicates that you will have minor money problems in your life.

Other interpretations of wearing dirty socks point to the fact that you are going to find out about someone with an illness or disease. It could also mean that there is something undesirable that is affecting you. This sick person could be a friend or family member, who is going to need your help as soon as possible.

Seeing dirty and also stinky socks in a dream suggests that people close to you may be conspiring against you. The dream suggests that they may have trouble understanding you and you will have to work hard to get them to see your point of view. The process will be difficult but eventually they may accept you for who you are.

Dreaming of new stockings

Having new socks in a dream is an indicator that you will experience new changes in your job, professionally or at school. This vision also denotes that the change will be very positive, and that you will be lucky in business.

Dreaming of colored socks

Colored socks in a dream symbolize excessive self-esteem and arrogance. If you have the power to make decisions about someone or something, you are capable of being a bit reckless. Your criticism often makes not only your opponents feel bad, but also those who have done nothing to deserve such treatment. If you were a ruler in the Middle Ages, you would be perceived as a tyrant.

Dreaming of black stockings

The meaning of dreams with black stockings, means that you are a very insightful person. You only need a moment to figure out someone’s intentions, and that trait has helped you many times in life. But you must admit that even sometimes you can make a mistake, and not judge others too harshly.

Very soon you will realize, that you were wrong about some people you labeled as bad. You should give people a second chance more often and let them show themselves as they really are. Open your senses as well as your heart, and you will discover that not everything is as bad as it seems.

To dream of white stockings

When you dream of white stockings, it means that you are trying too hard to impress the people around you. You have decided to lead a life in which everyone envies you, and you often boast about your achievements and hide those things you are not proud of. However, keep in mind that some people around you know you well and you can’t fool them.

To see a white stocking in your dream foretells problems at home or at work that will gradually fade away as long as you are patient enough. Wearing white stockings is a negative symbol that foretells health problems or great disappointments for you or whomever you see wearing them within your dream.

In another context, this dream suggests that you possess a calm personality. You are flexible and always do things to please and satisfy the desires of others. You bring comfort to those around you, and this could be the reason why some people take advantage of your good nature.

Dreaming of red stockings

The interpretation of dreaming of dreaming of red stockings shows that you are overconfident and arrogant about a situation. If you are in a position of power or have a large number of people at work at your command, try not to abuse. Someday karma could take its toll on you for all the wrong you have done.

Dreaming of walking in stockings

If you have dreamed that you are walking in stockings this indicates that your tangible assets will be safe. It could also suggest that there are people who are against you and are going to cause you difficulties. Walking in socks is a very comfortable thing to do in real life, and suggests the way you feel.

Dreaming of buying socks

To dream of buying socks symbolizes family concerns. It is possible that one of your family members will lose his or her job, which will worsen your financial situation. This dream also indicates that you will make sure that none of them will have difficulties, and you will be able to provide everything they need.

Dreaming of veiled stockings

The dream of veiled stockings, suggests that you are at a stage in your life when you will have minor problems with money. You may have a false sense of security because you have some savings. However, that security can easily vanish if an unexpected expense comes your way.

Dreaming of pantyhose

Dream interpretations of dreams about pantyhose have two meanings. If it is a man who dreams of a woman’s pantyhose, it means that one of his ideas or projects will fail and he will come to the conclusion that he has wasted money and time on something that has no future. If a woman dreams of pantyhose, it symbolizes the lack of sex.

Dreaming of nylon stockings

If you see nylon stockings or dream of wearing them, it means that someone or something will not live up to your expectations. You may be disappointed in a person you love, or you will buy something that will turn out to be a complete waste of money. Whether it is an object or a person, it does not bode well.

A symbol of erotic seduction. The context of the dream will clearly indicate its meaning. Stockings are a sign of prejudice and financial loss. To put them on reinforces this forecast of loss; to remove them, however, denotes luck. Holey socks reveal vain hopes and mismanagement at home.
Silk stockings announce luxury that is fleeting, as well as losses; cotton, modest wellbeing. To see stockings hung up expresses a false appearance of wealth; to wash them promises profits.
