Baywatch Star Kelly Rohrbach in Pantyhose

June 19, 2017 under Famous

I came across these photos from 2016 online by accident. Turns out that Kelly Rohrbach, 27, recently got herself a modeling gig, advertising a popular hosiery brand in Europe. She is an American-born model and actress, also happens to be one of the ex-girlfriends of Leonardo DiCaprio.

Kylie Minogue, the singer known for her wild side, just launched a new video that starts with a shot of a Wolford shopping bag.

Mostly the bodywear is featured as the dancers exercise in white bodysuits, but in some shots you can tell that she is wearing nude fishnet pantyhose under her leotard.

This video of dancers doing all sorts of moves  on high heels was filmed in a high school gym. The song itself is written by an Australian composer, Sia.

No More Google Ads on Fantasy Stockings

May 17, 2013 under News

Dear friends, I would like to give you an update about Fantasy Stockings.  As you may notice, there are some changes taking place on this website and you may be curious to know about it.

Fantasy Stockings no longer runs Google Adsense advertisement (or ads generated by any other pay per click network) on the blog posts.  In general that means that user experience will be greatly improved.

Perhaps this was not really the way it was planned by me.  I was hoping that by having Google Adsense on my blog I would be able to generate some funds in order to maintain this blog.  Just a few days ago Google Adsense disqualified Fantasy Stocking due to an article published about a male fashion model wearing hosiery.

As I obviously would not want to limit myself with the content published on my blog, I am transferring to another way of operating without being limited with what topics I can publicly discuss here.  I knew this would happen some day, so I had a back up option ready to launch waiting, as a source of funding instead of Google ads.

For this reason this website is taking a dual form.  It is partially a blog, partially an online shop for popular Polish brands like Gatta, Gabriella, Fiore, and perhaps soon I can introduce some like Sesto Senso, Ballerina, Intrigo, and Mona (Tespol).

You are welcome to browse my initial selection at the Shop Section.

Trying on a Russian Pantyhose Brand Gracia

May 4, 2013 under Brands

I just returned from my trip to Europe, wearing on my flight back for the first time a pair of Russian pantyhose of Gracia (Грация) brand.  You can learn more about my trip through in my pantyhose diary if you’d like.

Some people try exotic foods when they travel, I try exotic pantyhose.  It’s been a while that I wanted to try this brand, but I just couldn’t get it anywhere for obvious reasons – this label is only available in Eastern Europe and is not designed for export. Грация label, in Cyrillic letters, would not sell anywhere else.

I passed through Moscow for work and I visited an old friend of mine, Natasha.  She greeted me wearing beautiful black pantyhose.  Later she returned, complaining that she got a run in them, but saying that they lasted her many wears.  I asked what brand it was and she said – Грация (Gracia).

Next day I had to leave, so I didn’t even know if I’ll have a chance to buy myself this brand.  So just in case I asked her if I could have those pantyhose, just to try them on.  She didn’t mind me asking, but she didn’t want to give me something that was already damaged.  Actually she even looked through her pantyhose drawer and pulled out many 40 den pantyhose of different colours by the same brand, looking for another sheer pair, but she had none left.  Realizing how much I wanted to try it, she even offered me to ship a pair to Canada, but I declined, since I didn’t want her to go through the hassle.

pantyhose by Gracia Russian brand with reinforced toesLuckily, I found a pair of pantyhose by brand in a store – the style displayed on the photo above, 20 den, sheer to waist, with reinforced toe.  I asked for whatever colour they had, except for black – turned out they had Mocca.  Fine, I took it, but I must admit it looks more like dark tan rather than real Mocca.

Somehow for my whole trip it was really cold, so I was walking around in 40 den pantyhose.  But on my flight back to Vancouver I decided to lighten up and look glamorous, since a special someone was supposed to meet me at the airport.

I put on Gracia pantyhose for the first time in the morning, getting ready for my flight.  Let’s just say, I was a little nervous since I never tried that brand and besides Natasha’s positive feedback had no idea if it will survive for such a long period.  What if I end up with a huge run in them?

pantyhose by Gracia Russian brand with reinforced toes close up 2Reinforced toe already cheered me up, at least that means it’s more durable in that section.  Interestingly, it had a thick border at the beginning of the reinforcement, almost like a statement saying that the toe section begins!  Also, I noticed that the band was quite broad and elastic and held on well.  It didn’t have a control top, but a t-top with a cotton gusset.

That proved to be very good eventually because I never felt like I had to pull up these pantyhose throughout my flight and two transfers.  It survived at least 24 hours on me and when I took it off it had no runs or holes.  Excellent quality!  Now the only regret I have is that I didn’t buy more.

After checking the website of the manufacturer, I realized that they have some really nice advertisements.  Here are some of their pantyhose ads.  Do you notice that they feature only skin-tone and black colours?

 

 

End of FantasyWetlook.com

March 13, 2013 under News

FantasyWetlook.Com used to be a fun blog about wetlook, but shut down due to lack of funding

Dear friends,

Some of you know that I had another blog before – FantasyWetlook.com

It just closed down 1 hour ago.

I am very sad about it, but I felt that it would be best to close it rather than to keep an inactive blog.

Fantasy Wetlook got disqualified from all major advertiser networks (ex. Google Adsense, Chitika, Izea).

Not sure how, since there was no nudity there, but it was interpreted as “not for kids” material, even though some of the articles were so innocent in their nature.

Without funding, it didn’t make sense to continue this blog.  It’s a lot of work to generate content, censor comments, and so on.

My Fantasy Wetlook Youtube and Twitter still exist though.  I am not planning on closing those down.

MORE RECENT UPDATE: My Fantasy Stockings blog, the one you are reading, got kicked out of Google Adsense as well.  Hence, for that reason I am trying to develop an active shop section.  At the moment this is the only source of funding for this blog.  Please pay a visit if you are in the market for some sexy hosiery.

Fantasy Stockings is a registered business name.

Wolsley Underwear and Hosiery Advertisement

December 14, 2012 under Vintage

This is an old advertisement that used a man for their marketing material.

I’ve heard it in a lecture on marketing that this was an approach to recognize the males as customers too.  Women buy hosiery and underwear and who gets to appreciate the most?  The men!
This brand still exists to this very day.  I wonder, did they really try to get men to buy stockings for their women or is this taken out of context by the presenter of the marketing lecture that I listened to?

I would love to hear your opinion. But I somehow don’t feel that the man in that silly hat on the Wolsey poster turns me on.

Vintage Advertisement for Artificial Silk Stockings

November 18, 2012 under Vintage

I found this ad somewhere and thought to share it with my readers.  Is anyone nostalgic yet looking at those stockings with reinforced toes, soles, and heels?  Silk stockings, despite their sky high price, were the most desirable accessory for women. Even Coco Chanel said that it’s better to have a wrinkle on the skin than on the stockings.

I was in Washington DC this summer, browsing the Smithsonian district.  I kept on asking if they had vintage stockings since I’ve read on their blog that they do.  Introduction of the nylon stockings was a major milestone in the clothing industry, as you can see from the history section of this blog.

Perhaps the exhibit was no longer displayed since I couldn’t find it.  But if anyone of you have ever seen it there, please let me know and share your experiences with the rest of us.

Update from 2017: One of my internet friends here, Ian, says that he visited a car museum in England called the Lake’s Transport museum. They had a display of fashion from the 1960s and there was a pair of vintage stockings there by Mary Quant.

Kim Basinger in Golden Lady Pantyhose Commercial

October 21, 2012 under Famous

I remember watching this commercial and wondering how they made it so sensual.  Kim Basinger (the actress from the first Batman movie) has amazing legs and her attitude is so sexy.

I also just recently tried Golden Lady, 20 den – one of those in a square box package that you see in Kim’s trunk in the commercial.  That type of pantyhose is not folded around a cardboard insert, it’s just stuffed into a little compact box.  Well, when I took it out, it wasn’t neatly folded, it was all wrinkled like crepe paper.

My experience overall was positive, but I can’t really say that it feels great.  I liked that they made the toe reinforced, but I am so already not used to seeing pantyhose without a gusset.

Golden Lady brand is not known in North America, but it is very common in Europe.  It is made in Italy and has a good reputation.  I have a couple of other styles on hand from this brand, so I’ll give it a try.

 

What funds this blog?

September 3, 2012 under Practical

UPDATE:  The only funding now comes from the SHOP section.  But here’s the ancient info anyway when I tried to keep this non-commercial.

…. long long time ago before Google changed it’s mind

My friends, it’s just a reminder that the only major source of funding for this blog is the advertisement from Google.  I get people asking me all the time something like “Can you really make money from this?”.

Let’s just say, not much money at all when you consider the work put in.  However, it does help to cover some costs and the time it takes to research and write.

Of course, main thing is traffic.  More hits means more earnings from the advertisement.  At the moment I’d say that 50% of my traffic comes from organic Google search and the other 50% comes from forums.  After I’ve done some SEO tricks, my organic traffic doubled.

Please be kind to the sponsor ads and see what they have to offer.  If you are part of some online communities that may be interested in the topics I write about, please feel free to share the link.

Vintage Pantyhose Commercial

July 22, 2012 under Vintage

I saw these on the pantyhose forum, posted by Pavel.  I thought I’d share it with you.  It’s good to know that Elbeo brand is still around.  It is actually one of the oldest hosiery brands that exist.

Please see translation below in a comment posted by a person who speaks German. This way you can understand what it says on the packaging.  Thank you, my German readers for helping me out with that!
