Do you like to experiment with different hosiery shades?

September 12, 2016 under Style

When I just started selling pantyhose at local women events, I had women come up to me and ask “What colours do you have?” while browsing. Surprisingly, I rarely sold shades other than black and natural. I always wondered, why ask if you would still choose black?

There was one lady who worked for the Board of Trade, she was East Indian, with a darker skin tone. This was the only person who wanted to have something darker, like Cappuccino and Taupe shade, to match her skin tone.

I have some styles in my shop that come in a variety of shades. Have a look if you’d like in case you are one of those who likes to explore different options. One of my favourite writers, Tim Ferris, said that he purposely stopped wearing black at some point and actually experienced some enjoyment as a result.

I am trying on different colour shoes in a store. Wearing Fortsisima by Gatta pantyhose in light grey shade.

 

If you are looking for some exotic shades like Cypria, Cappuccino, and so on, have a look at these tights. They have a very wide pallette of colours. XL is also available!

If you are looking for fashion colours like violet and orange, have a look at Paula 40 den tights and at Ester stay up stockings. I brought in a lot of shades!

Adrian Hosiery Brand

Adrian brand advertisement plus size hosieryDear pantyhose fans, has anyone tried Adrian brand before? I am considering adding it to the shop section, I found a supplier who can get it for me.

When I was in Poland a while back, I’ve heard that this brand makes excellent plus size items.

It just happened that I was on a train with a glamorous girl who was looking at a Russian fashion magazine and even writing notes and circling items. I’ve never seen a woman that serious about a fashion magazine!

Turned out she was in the fashion industry and had an assignment to analyze some trends. So she didn’t speak Russian or anything like that, but according to her, Russia was so forward with their fashion trends that she would order their magazines for research.

I told her I have a hosiery blog and she brought up that brand to my attention, turns out they had the ads all over TV and so on for their plus size selection.

I’d be happy to hear if you have any comments.

If I’d bring it in, would you give it a try?

Dim pantyhose looks like coffee in these small bags.  One pack, the shiny one, is black pantyhose and the knee highs are in the other one.  These were purchased in France in 1982.  Large size.  These Dim are $8 each.

These Dim pantyhose were bought in Marseilles in France by my friend, in a shop that just sold lingerie and stockings. She went there to visit her friend and they together went to this shop, buying Dim bras and hosiery. That store was special because it was one of the few places that had bras with adjustable straps.
