Black is my favourite colour!

October 29, 2017 under News

black idalia pantyhose on the grass 2Recently I’ve been listening to a talk on fetishes by Mistress Lotta, a Russian BDSM club owner. She was saying that no colour like black has that much impact on people’s mind. Only white maybe can get somewhat close to it. What is your opinion?

Our psychological appreciation of colour has to do with the many perceptions of our lives. We have associations, so called connotations, with certain colours.

It turns out that for black the common connotations are that it is sophisticated, expensive, severe, mysterious, stark, and simple. There are also people out there who would describe it as glum and sneaky, but I am certaintly in the first category!

I remember Tim Ferris (the author of the 4 Hour Work Week) talking in one of his videos about the joy of NOT wearing black. He was sitting there dressed almost like a parrot, frankly, in something orange and a bunch of other shades that simply looked like something a only a person with a poor taste would choose.

I do like other colours in my wardrobe too, but I try not to wear too many because otherwise it looks overwhelming. Naturally, at least half of my wardrobe is black.

It sure extends to my pantyhose preferences! I remember the very first wholesale batch that I imported and I was surprised to hear from my friends that they wish I would bring some more colours other than black. It didn’t even occur to me at the time that someone would want a different colour. As you know from this blog though, I have expanded my hosiery preferences and I now experiment with many other shades too.

Reference to pantyhose in the “neg-hit” pick up guide

October 7, 2017 under Boys

backseam gone wrong - black sheer pantyhoseI was browsing an article about some pick up techniques used by men to get attention. One of them, called neg-hit, is never used first, but only after the woman begins to somehow either catch on or resist initial attempts. Such comments are meant to bring the woman down from her self-imposed pedestal.

One example of a neg-hit would be something like this – “Are your legs crooked, or is it just the way you put on your pantyhose today?” This is totally not expected by the woman and she gets all flustered. The next step for the man would be to show approval and say that he was just kidding, thus bringing to woman to relax.

Ladies, keep that in mind! But still, please, straighten your backseam and any geometrical lines on your hosiery to prevent giving men like that something extra to work with.

Just an old picture from a few years back! I’m unpacking my warm socks as we speak because Calgary is getting chilly. In the background there is a post card from a fan. 

I am noticing that I am only roughly 700 followers away from hitting the big 20K mark! This is so exciting. Thank you so much for believing in me and subscribing to what I post.

Twitter is the only open-minded platform that hasn’t flagged my non-nude pantyhose images as somehow “too sexy” and hasn’t deleted any of my accounts because of that.

My twitter handle is @FantasyStocking. Please follow me if you aren’t already and I appreciate all the comments and retweets. I am very close to my milestone!

Calvin Klein displays shiny hosiery on the runway – stay ups under sheer dresses

September 16, 2017 under Brands

Calvin Klein 2018 collection

I got this photo from Anatoly Borodin’s Facebook. He is also very excited to see shiny white hosiery on the runway. You can tell that these models are wearing stay up stockings, but I guess the daily adaptation of this trend for fall would mean shiny grey and white pantyhose.

Reverse Control Top Effect on Pantyhose

pantyhose from Taiwan on my legs

This is a photo I took on my vacation to Boston as I was sitting down to relax at one of the shopping malls I visited. I got these pantyhose as a gift from a girl who recently went to see her family in Taiwan. People know how much I like pantyhose, so they bring it to me from their trips.

I was so afraid that these Taiwanese pantyhose won’t fit me just because I am taller than an average Asian girl. To my surprise, they fit! I have never thought of myself as a hard-to-dress person, but with these Asian sizes I am frequently off the chart.

What I found surprising about this pair is the effect that you may at first think is the “mock stocking” pattern. These are actually the panty lines, it’s just that the panty itself is made of thinner material than the rest of the leg. While I was walking like that on high heels I already got an offer to go on a date from a random Bostonian gentleman.

Fishnets under Ripped Jeans

August 31, 2017 under Style

by Kate, Russia

kate wears fishnets under ripped jeans

Fishnets under ripped jeans? Why not!? So far, I can tell that I have fallen in love with fishnets. Ripped jeans are available in the wardrobe of almost any woman. We wear it with T-shirts, sweaters and sneakers in order to create a grunge style.

Generally, such trendy ripped jeans plus fishnets continue to gather momentum. I love this combination of different materials and texture because it is an affordable trend and looks stylish and sexy.

A usual combination with skirt and dresses is a routine already. That is why decided to wear my ripped jeans with my favorite tights and…voila! I created the balance between precious and vulgar, and I still like it. The small net size and nude color of my fishnets make me feel comfortable and sexy.

Colder days are coming up and these fishnets add a little bit of warmth, still allowing me to flaunt my cool denim. If you also would like to get a pair of such fishnet tights, check out Greta style by Fiore.

Wolford Boutique Hopping in Boston

August 24, 2017 under News

I just arrived back from Boston two weeks ago and I brought back a souvenir – a pair of Wolford Fatal Seamless 50 den tights that I bought at one of the two Wolford boutiques there.

Both locations offered a luxury experience. My first visit was to the Wolford boutique at the Copley Place where I was warmly greeted by Linda. She welcomed me and started off by telling me about the brand and all the cool specials in store that day on dresses and swimwear.

I chatted with Linda about a few things that interested me. Turns out that Wolford now has special uniform for their staff. If they wear pants, they don’t have to wear hosiery, but with skirts they should. I also was offered a bottle of water, it was a very nice gesture considering how hot it was outside.

Then I headed to the next location and I was greeted by Mindy, the manager. She was wearing a skirt and tights and looked very professional. Again, customer service was simply excellent. I told her that I’d buy something, but I already bought a pair of Wolford that day. Usually if I get good service, I make a purchase just so that I am writing a review as an actual customer.

I would like to thank both of those Wolford locations for welcoming me so warmly and representing this high end brand in the best way possible.

These photos were submitted by a happy nylon couple. This is Sophie, showing off her legs in Vanity stockings by Fiore in black shade, worn with a garter belt. She also has a pair in nude shade as you’ve seen in one of the previous posts. Her boyfriend is trying to do his best and focus on photography, but he can’t concentrate because she is just so good looking!

Fishing Time – Do Sheer Tights Protect from Mosquitoes?

August 18, 2017 under Seasonal, Travel
helene fishing in pantyhose

Helene wears pantyhose under leggings for her fishing trip.

by Helene, Mexico

Summer heat. I love water… any water, even if it is just a puddle after rain.

So, you can imagine how happy I was when my friends announced that they are going fishing. Tomorrow. Early in the morning, before the dawn. I am a night-owl, getting up in the morning for me is a torture, but…  fishing equals being near water, probably, a large body of water, like a river or a lake.

Have I mentioned by the way that I have a fishing rod? That’s a funny story; no, am not into fishing. I was coming home from a small trip in my car, when I saw something strange – many people, maybe a hundred of them, like ants, are crowding on a small bridge. I thought something happened, stopped and went to check if I can be somehow useful. And yes, something was happening there, right at the moment – they had a fishing tournament, in a small stream. I even asked to take a photo with them, and the organizers presented me a fishing rod.

So, I have a fishing rod. I unburied it from piles of things that are still loaded in the corner after moving, found my backpack that I was using for hiking in Norway – and am ready to the trip! Though…  Mexico is famous for its mosquitoes, those small ugly creatures that are able to spoil all the pleasure. But I had a solution! Sheer tights, I had read that they protect from insects, and I wanted to believe in that, as I did not have time to buy repellent.

After some hours, when we arrived to a sleepy yet mountain lake, I regretted that I had tights on instead of jeans as well as that I went to that trip at all. Mosquitoes were happy to see me, I had never seen so many of them before. They were flying around me trying to bite, and I was trying to remember what I know about malaria, zika and other illnesses that mosquitoes transfer: I was sure that I will get at least one of them. That lasted several minutes, though it felt like a year for me…

Then I noticed it.

Mosquitoes, they were coming, checking and… flying away. I thought that tights were helping till I noticed that those insects ignore me – I did not get a single bite: hands, arms, legs – nowhere! While my friends (none of them came to an idea to put on tights of even thin socks, all were wearing jeans or thick clothes to protect themselves from insects) were suffering badly. Mosquitoes were practically eating them up.

So, what`s wrong with me? Maybe because am not a Mexican, a “strange blood”? Do not know, but after the trip one thing became evident: local needle-nosed pests dislike me. The trip was good, the amazing mountain lake was worth writing poems about. But I am feeling offended.
