An Anonymous Quote on Pantyhose

April 3, 2017 under Poetry

One of my followers on social media passed this on. How lovely! Thanks, Vince! Since I prefer regular pantyhose, I’ll try to enjoy flowers as gifts rather than chocolate.

“If it weren’t for chocolate, there would be no need for control-top pantyhose. An entire garment industry would be devastated.”

Advantages of Sheer to Waist Pantyhose

Sheer to Waist

I find that if pantyhose are of good quality, it really doesn’t matter if they have a control top or not – they’ll stay up properly without sagging.  I started having a preference for sheer to waist pantyhose just because they look so much better with high cut outfits.

Non-compressive and easy to put on, without the control top struggle, is actually the main benefit for me.  I’ve met women who would say that they are squashed by their pantyhose.

T-tops are also really nice, but the only thing for me is that they would show up at the inner leg if worn with a bodysuit, like let’s say a dance leotard.

If someone does need shapewear, I’d suggest to buy a bodysuit or shorts with a shaping element for that purpose that can be worn over and over again.  Pantyhose are best when they are simply sheer!

Low Rise Pantyhose – most long lasting pair ever for that kind of price!

November 24, 2011 under Style

Has anybody tried it?  I am about to!  Low rise pantyhose are very popular among teens.

OK, just put on a pair of low rise hipster tights by Gabriella brand.  They are in fact very cheap, so I’d like to put them to a test.

Material: The fabric is not soft, it’s sheer, but feels a little rough to touch.  Still seems very durable though, especially because of the reinforced toe.

In terms of low rise: I must admit that this is my first time trying this on.  It feels nice around the hips.  I don’t feel like it is too low.  I guess for those times when I used to wear pantyhose under pants, this would be perfect.

Yesterday I was talking to a woman who said that her mother brought her some warm pantyhose.  She pulled up her sweater and under her jeans she had very high rise control top, but her jeans were low cut.  It looked kind of strange, but I guess maybe she pulls up the pantyhose so high on purpose for extra warmth around the waist.

Reinforced Toes

Update from 3 months after opening that pair

– Still no runs!  I wore it probably at least 7-8 times.

– This pantyhose survived Velcro (a boy next to me on the plane landed his jacket’s sleeve on my leg)

– I notice irregularity in the weave (see defects section), but this as it turns out, doesn’t affect the durability

– I can’t really say that the fabric is soft, but it fits well and doesn’t slide off the hips.
