A few days ago my friend shared with me this link and her excitement about this new kind of melting tights. Well, I was excited too and even was thinking of how to get a pair of them for myself. But luckily I had a long journey and enough time to think about it.

CAN I WEAR IT ON THE STREET?

OK, let us suppose I will buy such tights. But what after that? Where shall I wear them? Maybe I will be able to wear them for some extraordinary party or event, which usually takes place once in a blue moon.

If I wear them outside instead of normal tights I will attract everyone’s attention.  Maybe I’ll get comments from people.  But the biggest fun it would be if I put them on in autumn, when it rains all time, and let people wonder what’s going on.

SAME EFFECT WITH TANNING CREAM – ALMOST!

This reminds me of a story which my friend told me. She was trying to get some tan and used special cream for that. That was supposed to be of a good quality and she really believed in it till once she got caught in rain. This cream reacted with rain water and formed a thick layer of foam flowing down her legs! Could you imagine how embarrassed she was walking outside?

HOLES AND RUNS DEBATE

Some of these designs combine the paint with the holes and runs.  In my opinion those holes just make tights look awful. Maybe I am old-fashioned, but then why do majority of women throw away tights when they are torn?  Some people may continue wearing it with the same pride as if it were designer clothes and even think of it as sexy. Anyway it is up to one’s taste, but I can’t stand any kind of holes or runs in my tights.  Holes in tights are not a new invention, so let us turn back to paint flows on these melting tights.

SOME WILL DO ANYTHING FOR THE SAKE OF ATTENTION

Well, one evident advantage is that people will turn their attention to tights rather than to legs, that is why this attire is the best choice for those whose legs are far from perfect. It is summer now and many girls and women try to beautify themselves by wearing the most incredible things. Short skirts and dresses when legs are far from perfect, massive rings when fingers are swollen from heat, thick make-up flowing from heat and sweat, so those tights can complete the image. Flowing make-up and flowing paint will be a perfect combination.

CAN MEN WEAR IT?

With women taking on professions that were traditionally performed by males, it’s not a surprise that men wouldn’t borrow anything from women.  So logically – why not men then wearing tights?  Then they also shall not forget about dresses and skirts. URB brand came out with melting tights for both genders.

MAYBE A TREND FOR TEENAGERS?

These tights can be really good for teenagers who like to be different and stand out from crowd. Shorts or short skirt, bright running shoes or comfortable shoes, bright top – and the teenager-girl will look wonderful. All suits them if chosen with taste.

But I don’t think it’s OK for those who aren’t in their teenage years anymore. Of course adult women will attract much attention when they try to put on such tights, but this will be not the kind of attention they are looking for. If you are not a teenager anymore, not a model or a TV-star, then better avoid such thing.

IN MY FASHIONABLE CONCLUSION

Such tights is quite good and innovative idea, everything has a right to exist. And we choose carefully where it’s appropriate and where it isn’t.

I come to a conclusion that even though it can be fun, but when it comes to daily wear this style is not for me. So I will wait until I become a celebrity TV host or a famous sci-fi movie actress and then I can go ahead and make a hell of a fashion statement!

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.

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.

Update 8  months after opening this pair

– Still good!  I wore it on my trip to Europe and even did a photoshoot in it.  No runs.  I love this low rise pantyhose!
