RACHEL ZOE FASHION SHOW
These photos are from a beautiful runway show from Rachel Zoe. In fact the show is alright – quite a lot of these models are wearing hosiery of different styles and colours! Yay!
Looking at a very attractive model in black sheer pantyhose, I am overwhelmed with joy to finally see classy hosiery on the runway. But as she turns around, something goes very wrong! The back seam is all twisted. Oh no, I exhale sadly.
Don’t they have stylists and dressers backstage to fix this?
Every time I wear back seam, I spend more time turning in front of the mirror then actually putting it on. I pinch the hose by the seam and pull it side to side to make it straight. If I have someone around, I ask the person to adjust it for me.
How do you make your back seam hosiery straight?
Erika from Canada, simply a huge fan of hosiery:
“If your into full fashion silky hosiery especially stockings with Cuban heel and back seam, there is definitely a way to wear them . The way you put them on to begin with is important.
I like to have a mirror to look in through my legs as I inch them up from my ankle nice and slow keeping the seam straight all the way up. It’s important to keep a watch on them with your back turned to a full length mirror every once in a while after that.
Running your hands on fine silk stockings is always amazing and I don’t mind doing this is often as necessary.”
Gillian from United States (her Youtube), crossdresser and hosiery enthusiast:
“First, I try to get them straight the first time, using a handheld mirror to see if they’re too off-centered. Taking a picture of your legs with a digital camera might work too, you can do it quickly and not necessarily keep the picture.
I try not to move too much while sitting down, the leg movement can move the seams off-center even if the only motion is sitting down and getting up. After I get up I’ll quickly check the seams again.”
Jennifer from United States, founder of Pantyhose-Pantyhose:
“I can’t speak for anyone else, but what I do is I make sure that when I slip my feet into the pantyhose, the seam faces the right way, and the reinforced toe area (or the toe seam if it’s a sandal-toe we’re talking about) sits absolutely perfectly. I then pull the hose up, making sure not to twist it either way during the process. When done, a last look in the mirror is warranted, just to make 100% sure. I keep my hosiery gloves on if I need to make any adjustments. Going out with crooked back-seams is just so embarrassing.”
