Calvin Klein displays shiny hosiery on the runway – stay ups under sheer dresses

September 16, 2017 under Brands

Calvin Klein 2018 collection

I got this photo from Anatoly Borodin’s Facebook. He is also very excited to see shiny white hosiery on the runway. You can tell that these models are wearing stay up stockings, but I guess the daily adaptation of this trend for fall would mean shiny grey and white pantyhose.

Wolford Boutique Hopping in Boston

August 24, 2017 under News

I just arrived back from Boston two weeks ago and I brought back a souvenir – a pair of Wolford Fatal Seamless 50 den tights that I bought at one of the two Wolford boutiques there.

Both locations offered a luxury experience. My first visit was to the Wolford boutique at the Copley Place where I was warmly greeted by Linda. She welcomed me and started off by telling me about the brand and all the cool specials in store that day on dresses and swimwear.

I chatted with Linda about a few things that interested me. Turns out that Wolford now has special uniform for their staff. If they wear pants, they don’t have to wear hosiery, but with skirts they should. I also was offered a bottle of water, it was a very nice gesture considering how hot it was outside.

Then I headed to the next location and I was greeted by Mindy, the manager. She was wearing a skirt and tights and looked very professional. Again, customer service was simply excellent. I told her that I’d buy something, but I already bought a pair of Wolford that day. Usually if I get good service, I make a purchase just so that I am writing a review as an actual customer.

I would like to thank both of those Wolford locations for welcoming me so warmly and representing this high end brand in the best way possible.

Where do flight attendants buy their tights?

August 10, 2017 under Practical

Satin Touch 20 pantyhose on the airplaneJust recently I returned from my trip to US and I wanted to write about two conversations I had with flight attendants on the way there and back about pantyhose. I was curious to hear whether why they choose not to wear compression hosiery even though it is fully covered by their work benefits and where they buy their regular ones.

On my way to JFK one of the flight attendants was very friendly to me and I asked her, out of professional interest, what hosiery she wears. She said that she actually buys her tights at the dollar store! Somehow whether she buys it for $2 or for $15 from the department store, she still ends up getting snags in them the first time she wears. Thus, she figured, why spend more.

When I asked about compression, she said that she has one pair that she got through the company. It helps her legs and she really should wear it, but it’s too much hassle. Compression hosiery needs to be put on wearing latex gloves and it has to be washed in a specific soap solution.

My suggestion to her was to buy a few more of those compression tights and alternate them, so she can wash them all at once. I also gave her my card and offered to give her some free Fiore hosiery to try out and review. There are moderately priced options out there that don’t have as high of a mark up as the ones at the department store.

On my flight back I asked another flight attendant about her tights and the story was almost the same. She buys her regular hosiery from Aldo shoes. Exactly like the lady before her, she also owns one pair of compression hosiery that she was specifically measured for. However, she lost weight and her compression tights no longer fit her properly.

For all the flights I wore pantyhose myself, it’s doesn’t look credible to ask someone a personal question, claiming you are from the hosiery industry, if you don’t look the part. On my flight to JFK I wore Wolford tights and on the way back out of Boston I wore a pair of thicker Taiwanese ones that were a gift from a friend. Fiore tights make up the majority of my personal collection, but I also like to try on different brands in order to be able to compare and give people good feedback in terms of benchmark brands.

Wearing 60 den tights by Gabriella

Gabriella 60 den microfibra black tights on my legs plus size

Here is a shot of me wearing 60 den microfiber tights by Gabriella. These are actually plus size! Currently they are on sale, 50% off. There are a few shades to pick from – chocolate, cappuccino, graphite, and black.

A fan ordered them and allowed me to model them to assess how stretchy they are. The waistline is quite stretchy. I managed to pull it up to my neck. Here is a video below of me showing them off and playing with the waist band.

 

Happy summer shade – turquoise pantyhose!

June 6, 2017 under Fiore

Here are some photos you probably already managed to catch on my social media channels. I took these wearing XXL pair of turquoise Paula tights by Fiore to demonstrate how stretchy it is. They come in many fun colours.

There are a lot of customers lately looking for plus sizes. Paula is a 40 den microfiber style that comes in XL and XXL. So far it is the best seller on this site. It is literally the #1 item that I have so far sold most of.

Golden Lady Fashion Show – Seamless Pantyhose on the Runway

May 29, 2017 under Golden Lady, Runway

I saw these amazing photos on one of the ethnic pantyhose forums and they are taken by Alexander Zhuravlev, the website is in the watermark on the images. This was a fashion show from 2016 for Golden Lady and they were showing “Rock My Legs” collection of seamless pantyhose.

I am thrilled to see this nice white shade, however I haven’t seen it available for sale. Currently I am clearing out some Golden Lady 20 den seamless and Golden Lady 40 den seamless styles called My Secret. They are very popular, but kind of hard to get, I need to go through a Polish supplier and I know that they make me wait for a long time because they are ordering it from somewhere (likely Russia) themselves. It’s just not efficient, I prefer to continue working with factories directly and I wasn’t able to get a response from Golden Lady to open a wholesale account.

I also noticed that there were pink sheer seamless pantyhose in that show and even some seamless pantyhose with polka dot patterns. I haven’t seen those before! My suspicion is that they were made for that fashion show only.

Here are some photos of me wearing brown Ravenna tights by Fiore. Currently there is only size small left in black and brown. The weather was horrible and rainy, I stayed indoors and decided to take a few pictures. My new shoes turned out to be a perfect match.

Newsletter Aftermath

April 15, 2017 under News

Legs59 sheer black pantyhose resized photoIt hasn’t been even 24 hours yet since the most recent newsletter, but I already have 25 messages in my inbox wanting to know the reasons for why I am most likely going to sell Fantasy Stockings business.

I told you, if more than 10 people ask, I’ll do a separate newsletter with some explanations. It will take me a few days to draft it up, there is no simple single answer.

I’ll try to be as sincere as possible about it. My goals and circumstances in my 20’s were not the same as they are in my 30’s, thus I need to re-evaluate some decisions I’ve made earlier.
