Pantyhose Wearers are More Likely to Get Searched by Airport Security

June 19, 2017 under What to Avoid

dark chocolate pantyhose in the airportI saw someone talking about this article online and decided to also share it here, originally this story appeared on Quora. A woman was flying to Miami for work, wearing black sheer pantyhose. She got stopped by the TSA officer as she was going through security got searched. Later, the officer told her quietly why most likely she got flagged.

A lot of times Pantyhose and Spanx or other compression type clothing make it look like you are smuggling things under your clothing. The scanner cannot detect them correctly. That is probably why it flagged you.”

Cuban Hotel and Airport Staff in Pantyhose

May 4, 2014 under Travel

On my trip to Cuba I couldn’t help but notice how many maids and waitresses were wearing pantyhose! Of course, not every single one. Somehow in the hotel where I was staying pantyhose became optional and so did customer service in many instances (let’s just say we had a few issues at front desk).

I took a photo of these two lovely people on the morning of my departure. The maid was holding such beautiful flower arrangement that I just couldn’t resist and asked her for a photo.

As some of you already know, I went on this trip with my parents. The waitress that served us each dinner was really sweet. We gave her some used clothing and my suitcase that I no longer needed (with all the poverty in that country they really appreciate any kind of used items), and in exchange she brought us some Cuban souvenirs. We really didn’t expect anything in return. She also brought photos of her family to show us.

I also saw the guards at the airport in pantyhose. They even had patterned pantyhose on! That was really nice to look at. I must admit, I was afraid to take photos there though. Who knows what their rules are, I don’t want to find out the hard way.

Do you notice though how short the skirts are for the guards? I saw them even shorter! There was one guard at the airport in black pantyhose who had such a sexy walk, I wish I could film her, but I didn’t want to get in trouble because there was another guard right next to me.

And lastly, the tour guide was wearing pantyhose too! Here is a picture of my own leg sticking out in pantyhose and our guide standing in the background. She had a run in hers though, so I wonder whether she should consider carrying an extra pair around. It was really hot that day, but I don’t want to feel cold from the air conditioning, so I wear some kind of hosiery. I mean, I can always take it off if I get too hot.

A Trip to Jordan

November 4, 2013 under Travel

Helene, one of the ladies who helps with this blog, just recently came back from her vacation in Jordan. She was fascinated with the beauty of that country. But with the dress code there being so conservative, she could not even wear most of her fancy outfits that she packed.

 

by Helene, from Belarus, about her visit to Jordan

Ajloun in Jordan - ancient Roman castle ruins

Ajloun in Jordan – ancient Roman castle ruins famous for its columns and great acoustics.

 

All starts here, in the international airport of Amman, Jordan. The atmosphere of friendliness, people are tired after exhausting flight but still smiling and friendly. After the customs checkpoint Jordan begins. All is new for me and really amazing.

Arabic music from all corners, girls wearing shawls and jackets, though I noticed at once the beautiful manner of how those shawls are arranged on their heads. But I understand immediately that my dresses and skirts will be not fit in here. The same as a full bag of tights which I took with me in hope that the weather here will be like our summer. But I also understand that my tights, different colours and patterns, would be out of place here. In Jordan women wear either long trousers or long skirts.  Even though some locals have quite well fitted pants, for me to flaunt my tights among them would be considered rather rude than attractive.

Here, in Amman, is the start of my first encounter with Jordan. There will be days full of impressions, journeys to ancient places, and meetings with people who managed to become a part of my life during those several days which I stayed there. The only problem was language, since only younger generation could speak more or less English, so they suffered most and in the evening they ran away to sleep very early, completely exhausted because of the whole day of translating.

Maybe that was the main reason why one of the girls decided to teach me Arabic. Well, in vain of course, as I was more busy with visiting new places, taking photos rather than revising words, but my bad luck was that I was accommodated in her room, so every evening she checked what words I remember. Really hard work for a holiday. Maybe that is why this impression is the strongest one, and this teacher is one of best teachers I have ever met. But the holiday ends sooner or later, I am at home now – all as usual again, work, autumn.

Have you ever been to Jordan?  Both me and Helene would love to hear your comments and stories.  We love to travel and exchange experiences with others.

Queen of Sky – Blogging Dangerously

May 6, 2013 under What to Avoid

queen_of_skyThis wonderful lady, Ellen Simonetti, had a job as a flight attendant at Delta Airlines a while back and ran a blog called Queen of Sky about her personal life.

But after taking such photos (even though not provocative) and posting them on her blog, the airline terminated her employment without a warning.

Could it really be that this Queen of Sky in her flight attendant uniform with sheer glossy pantyhose and a flirty pose would cause someone to fire her for posing in an empty airplane?  Could it somehow still be too sexy?

Perhaps nobody would know who she is if this wouldn’t happen to her and she wouldn’t file a lawsuit against the airline.  But I guess that her termination lead to her popularity in a way.  I even read about her in a book on blogging!  It’s a whole different matter whether she used that popularity to her benefit or not – at least her original blog doesn’t exist anymore, for example.

Either way, be careful what you do at work and where you post it.  Some companies really do feel protective of their uniforms being photographed, etc.  A great publicity success for the Queen of Sky, after winning that lawsuit, and a lesson for the rest who are not up for lawsuits.

Magic of Pantyhose in Eastern Europe

June 7, 2012 under Style
Malboro model in pantyhose in Ukraine

Malboro promotion in Ukranian duty free shop

I had an opportunity to spend a couple of weeks of summer in multiple Eastern European countries and observe at least one third of women proudly wearing pantyhose.

In general, in that region women put more effort to look their best even if they are going to do their daily chores.  Looking good is an expectation.  Maybe not explicit, but it’s always there.

Ukraine: beautiful Barbie is wearing nude pantyhose

Borispol airport in Ukraine seemed to be the hottest place throughout my trip, temperature wise and fashion wise.

As an example, I’ve seen a beautiful brunette model
promoting Malboro cigarettes at the duty free store.  She was very friendly and gladly posed for a photo.  Her sporty outfit looked stunning with a pair of shiny pantyhose.

Again, at the same airport, I saw a beautiful Barbie Girl who was catching a flight to Sofia, Bulgaria.  She was wearing nude pantyhose with her pink outfit despite the hot weather.

Ukraine: airport female staff were wearing skirts and pantyhose.

I remember hearing results of a survey why Arab men prefer to date Eastern European women.  One thing from the responses that shocked me was “these women look after themselves even after marriage”.  I was surprised to realize that this statement implied that some women don’t.

For the record, I noticed that the Barbie girl had a ring on her finger.  Yes, such beautiful women don’t stay single for long.

Chopin airport in Warsaw was not far behind.  There were a lot of fancy women there, both staff and tourists, wearing pantyhose.  Considering that in most airports photography is not allowed, I had to be quite careful in order to get a few sneak peeks for you.

Poland: blond flight attendant is wearing chocolate colour pantyhose

In Poland I was pleased to see a beautiful blond woman checking boarding passes while wearing chocolate pantyhose.  What a rare sight!  I think it’s only possible in Eastern Europe.   Brown is a very rare colour these days and somehow it doesn’t get recommended for fair skinned people.  I remember how in our Vancouver Wolford boutique staff were just adamant about me expressing an interest in a tan shade darker then my own skin tone.

In LED airport in Russia I also saw a lot of pantyhose, but with their tough security I decided not to play with the rules.  Of course, that vast country is full of women of all ages and sizes in pantyhose.  Teens, grandmothers, young moms… they all wear it.  Fashion stores have great hosiery selection, including brands like Falke.

Some curious bullet points here about Eastern Europe:

Russia: even young moms go out in sexy outfits!

  • reinforced toes are frequently worn even with sandals
  • plain pantyhose greatly outnumber patterns
  • nude seems to be the most popular colour for plain hosiery
  • black is the most popular colour for patterns
  • pantyhose commercials on TV and banners for brands like Conte
  • layering is OK, i.e. wearing beige fishnets over sheer nude pantyhose
  • even plus size ladies wear it (I saw a mature woman in bright orange tights)

Russia: size and age are no obstacle to wear hosiery!

So friends, if you would like to make this summer full of nylon legs, book a flight to Eastern Europe for an unforgettable pantyhose experience!
