I buy a size that fits me well.
They definitely are hot. Menopause brings bravery and a what the hell attitude some of the time. Yet I am definitely interested in staying stylish and watching the nerd appeal as I age. Not a nylons girl. Like Like. This topic came up in some conversation a few days ago. We debated whether they actually manufactured panty hose any more!
Obviously they do! But then I very rarely wear a dress. I am also fond of black opaque tights in the winter time — I get cold, even wearing pants — and they look good under skirts or dresses, I think. I really do love black tights. Wish they would come back into style for grown up ladies. The heavy kind that are warm and do not run.

I wear dresses or skirts that come to mid leg. Textured and black hose is making a come back according to my fashionista 30 year old! Never in summer time bc they are too much then. Nothing looks more odd to me that a woman wearing a wool coat over a dress but no stockings! And they do make a more polished look imo!
If your legs are cold put a pair of stockings on
Look at Kate Middleton. She wears them! I rest my case! Wearing Hose definitely makes for a more polished look when you are wearing a nice dress or skirt. And they do provide some warmth in the winter. Bare legs just do not look finished to me. However, I deal with it by mostly wearing pants—I have never really liked wearing dresses. And I think you can wear more comfortable shoes with pants.
And there are dressy pants outfits if you need to dress up. No hose for me!! And I am so relieved….

But I do think black tights and other colors and patterns are fun and cute in the winter. But I do hate them if they are too tight or roll down.
When I taught I wore colored tights to match my outfits. I loved crazy patterns- stripes, paisleys, whatever to get the kids attention. When I left teaching, I gave many of the tights to the art teacher for projects. I still love opaques in winter but more blacks, browns, and navy etc.
Bare legs in summer. Love to think of you in those crazy patterns. What kind of art projects can you do with them? Sounds fun!
Depends on the occasion and dress but generally bare in the summer and hose or tights in the winter. They were nice shades, nice texture, nice price, and lasted longer than other types of hosiery. I did buy some fleece-lined tights for a business trip to Boston in January a few years ago, but other than that, nope!
Bare legs have there place but so does a nice pair of sheer hosiery. I love pantyhose. They feel soft and sensuous and make my legs look great. I think the key is to find the right brand and size. I am a true pantyhose lover. Everyday 7 days a week. I just enjoy my pantyhose so much.
I live in them. Make your legs look so nice. I buy Wolfords, CdR, etc. The proper size too.
I think pantyhose are amazing. I dont know why women hate them. Buy a better brand.
It really finishes off a nice outfit. I forgot to mention. I dont feel properly dressed without my favorite pantyhose on my legs. My mom had bought me pantyhose when I was figure skating in the cold arenas because they were thin I could move well. Hello Barbara.
When did stockings go out of style?
Great blog. I can say that I wear pantyhose with shorts spring till late fall. I dont feel properly dressed without my favorite pantyhose. They compliment the legs too.
Nothing worse than a nice outfit and tacky white legs. Forgot to mention. Yes I am a total pantyhose nerd. I absolutely love wearing my favorite pantyhose everyday. I feel off sorts without wearing my favorite pantyhose.

I buy premium brands. Plus I buy the right size. I put my favorite pantyhose on using hosiery gloves too. I wear them quite often, nearly everyday to keep my legs warm and they keep my skirts from rubbing my legs and wearing out so quickly. I do fully support your pantyhose positive approach. Since my ex-gf she was 10 years olderwas a true passionate, she made me really love it as well.
She was initially completely not certain if I would also prefer pantyhose, as stockings are considered much more attractive, but step by step she did convince me to have the same preferences. Not only outside. Therefore I can just say — yes — if you like it — I can fully understand and do not find them old fashioned.
And fully prefer while ladies are wearing them instead of bare, pale legs. You are commenting using your WordPress.
