I was watching something on Youtube about a controversial personal growth training that gave people assignments to get out of their comfort zone, I imagine. Relatives of those who attended are really upset, saying that this is just absurd.
One of such challenges would be to make men wear pantyhose under their pants. Another one was to gather up some courage and show their bare bottom to the whole audience of other fellows who came there to expand their horizons.
I would like to know your thoughts on that. Such workshops tell their clients that they will become more successful in business as a result. Do you think this is a waste of money or there is some truth to it?
I found this fun segment on Youtube. It looks like these models had a pantyhose fashion assignment! Which one of them will be the alpha hosiery model? Which one has the best imagination and legs to go with it?
Are these random shots of models who happen to wear pantyhose or is this really a fashion challenge? I am trying to find the full version of this video, so if anyone can help to locate this divine hosiery model material, I’ll be so grateful. There are some references online to this saying that Heidi Klum was one of the judges.
A native German speaker translated for me the two sentences that we hear the models say: “You may get used to these clothes…” and “I was glad that the body covered my butt cheeks”. He is pretty sure that it was an assignment to present pantyhose. Seriously, they have bikini contests, why not have hosiery contests?
Perhaps modeling pantyhose is a challenging assignment just because it is not a common garment to be shown off like that. Garter belts and stockings are so common that you can see them on any poster, but pantyhose, especially without a skirt, is a different topic because it is not as abundantly displayed. The job of a hosiery model is not easy since she needs to present a garment in an attractive way without looking vulgar or too suggestive.

Some of you may know that I have a lot of friends from the Mary Kay circles. One of them gave me a book to read on Mary Kay. I didn’t expect much from it, but started to read it out of respect for the woman who gave me that book. It turned out to be one of the best biographies that I’ve ever read.
Mary Kay believed that God made women feminine for a reason and instructed her sales representatives to always look their best.
Even though pants were already acceptable, she told women not to wear it and aim for the most well groomed professional lady appearance. In her opinion, even men would respect a woman more who behaves and dresses like a lady.
Even though this woman came from a totally different time, her advice for women is very progressive even in these days. For example, she says that you can’t afford NOT to hire a cleaning lady if you are planning to have a family and a career.
There were times when Mary Kay would be the only woman present at business meetings. She’d walk into a room full of men and all the sudden they would become quiet and more polite in her presence. Her feminine look, with diamonds and fancy hair, even though that she was already a grandma, would send the message that this is a lady and one should behave accordingly around her.
I truly admire this woman for having the courage to start her own company when she was already retired and make it against all odds.
