Pantyhose Models from WamInStyle and Holiday Greetings

December 25, 2012 under Seasonal

Written by Jessica

My friends, if you like to see some photos of pantyhose models, I recommend to visit WamInStyle website.  I even had a pleasure of meeting them this summer when I was visiting Russian and we even collaborated on a photoshoot.

Their main theme is wetlook – it’s a fun of doing something that your mother told you to never do, i.e. get your fancy clothes wet.  Their models can walk into a fountain or jump into a river during their photoshoots.  Having said that, they absolutely love pantyhose and stockings, so majority of their shoots don’t go without some kind of hosiery involved.

There is currently a special on subscription to WamInStyle.  Their pantyhose models are just divine, up for any kind of play!

Also, to my knowledge, they accept requests from their members and even non-members who are interested in a specific photoshoot.

*Dear friends, please remember what makes this blog possible – your purchases at the shop section.  Would there be a sleek pair of stockings or pantyhose there that you’d like for yourself?  Please visit our online hosiery shop.*

Interview with Finn Magazine

October 23, 2012 under Interviews

Finn Magazine is the only Canadian magazine that focuses on the beauty of hosiery and women’s legs.  I am pleased to present this interview with the editor and PR manager of Finn Magazine, Mr. John Zueck.  

 

How did you come up with the name Finn?  Does it actually have anything to do with Finland?

We get that a lot.  There were a few other suggestions on the table as well but Finn just felt about right at that moment.  It stands for feet in nylon and I think gives the idea of what we offer the best.

 

What was it that inspired you to start your own magazine focusing on legs and hosiery?

As far as back I can remember I always looked for a magazine that captures what I’m into kind of thing.  I was lucky enough to find a couple magazines that offered what I like.  I was really excited but they were not kind of magazines that I could read in the public, like school, the park or even in my apartment. I had to hide them so no one could see them.  I thought why wouldn’t there be a magazine which I don’t have to hide.  I’ve never thought I would be a part of it though.

 

What was the hardest part of starting this magazine?  I am sure that gathering your team from all over the world isn’t easy.

Working with people who are into same fetish with you is awesome.  We met our photographer on vacation.  We were in a restaurant and he was taking photos of her girlfriend’s feet.  Right there we mentioned him our project and offered him a job.  The hardest part to start up a magazine would be to decide “are you ready? and do you really want to do it?” So far everything went so good and we hope it to be so for the future too.

 

I wonder what the gender breakdown of your readers is.  I could imagine that most women would get very curious when they see a nice pair of shoes on the cover.

We have been contacted by some of our women customers who purchase the magazine for their friends or husbands.  I can’t really say how many of them actually buys Finn for themselves.  It would be nice to know though.

 

 

Why do you think that hosiery became such a rare site these days?  I am amazed to see young women in December going to Christmas parties in evening dresses and bare legs.

I see a better future for hosiery.  I mean It may not be where it deserves to be today but it certainly in a better place where it was 10 years ago.  I have to say though due to nature of my business I travel a lot and I can say that hosiery is much more common in Europe than in North America.  It’s almost the opposite when you compare them.  You barely see a pair of bare legs on the streets of London, Paris or Moscow especially in winter.  Whereas women in North America prefer to wear pants but it’s changing  thanks to celebrities and commercials.

 

A lot of straight men who visit my blog admit wearing pantyhose for fun and comfort.  Does Finn Magazine have any position when it comes to men who enjoy wearing hosiery?

I am aware of this trend.  In fact one of my neighbors in the building where I used to live wore them in public and very colorful ones too.  Everyday a different kind and color he used to wear.  I certainly appreciate his courage about being this open.  It’s kind of like our motto for Finn letting people know what you’re into.

Based on what criteria do you choose your models?  I wonder what kind of a woman would make the perfect Finn cover girl.

We have never worked with a modeling agency.  In fact we met all our models on the street and most of them had pantyhose on at the time we met them.  We explain them what we do, some of them say no and some agrees to work with us.  A perfect Finn girl is who knows there are guys out there who find her more attractive in pantyhose and she uses this perfectly.

I am sure that you get people who ask why someone would want to create a magazine with a focus on feet.  What do you say to those people on who are on a completely different wavelength when it comes to viewing feet as an attractive body part?

I have to admit I like telling people what I do.  Most give me a face wondering if I’m normal at first.  Especially women who ask “A magazine for pantyhose and feet, are you crazy? Being a part of something somewhat unusual makes a great conversation with people who I newly met too.  I like what I do and I’m glad I’m involved in this project.

 

This year is almost over.  Do you have any New Year Resolutions for Finn Magazine to accomplish in 2013?

The first and most important goal for us would be to make Finn a monthly magazine.  Right now it is published four times a year.  We didn’t think it would draw this much attention.

 

Finn magazine comes out four times a year and you can subscribe for the next issue here.  It is an excellent choice if you’re into pantyhose and foot in nylon.  www.finnmagazine.com

Spick and Span Magazine – Vintage Lingerie

April 14, 2012 under Vintage

I am glad to point out that now I own an original copy of Spick and Span thanks to my fan who sent me these scans!  He shipped me the original.  It was a breath-taking experience to hold something that beautiful from the 1960’s.

I also couldn’t believe how real these British pin up girls looked.  They had sincere smiles and regular bodies, not like the cookie-cutter girls these days with a blank gaze in the magazines.

Spick and Span was a British magazine in 1960’s of women showing off their knickers, stockings, and bras.  At that time there was no pantyhose just yet, only stockings and garter belts.  One of my friends from the Netherlands has sent these scanned pictures and I am so pleased to be able to share these vintage pin up photos with you.

You can click on the photos to see enlarged version to read the text.

 

Besides lovely garter belts and stockings, I am drawn to the fact that these women are real people with a spark in their eyes and genuine smiles.  I am very grateful to get these photos from Spick and Span magazine and to be able to share them with you.

Later Gerard sent me a few copies to treasure!  I keep a Spick and Span magazine that tucked into a picture frame in my bedroom and this is the first thing I see in the morning when I wake up.  I love it!  My favourite photo is of a girl wearing a wreath with a fun story to go along with it.  Maybe I’ll scan it for you some day.
