Translation: “In Krasotka (Beauty) cab you can read a magazine and change your pantyhose”
Did you get a run in your pantyhose, but don’t have a spare pair on you? Even worse, are you running short on time and can’t afford to go look for a public washroom to change in?
In Odessa, Ukraine, a new taxi service for women called Krasotka (means Beauty) caters to women and has basic items available for their comfort and needs. If your pantyhose ripped accidentally, they will give you a new one.
On their website they even say that they offer a service to transport goods and give an example – if a woman is busy, but her girlfriend is in desperate need of a spare pair of pantyhose, she can ask Krasotka taxi to urgently deliver the item. They have everything from tampons, umbrellas, to children toys.
Even though the owner of the company is a man, Krasotka’s clients and drivers are only female. Men are rarely allowed only if they are being accompanied by a woman (as part of her baggage, I suppose). Once they made an exception for a male gay couple who wanted a ride and gave a bold statement that they are “girls too”.
Just wanted to share with all of you something I’ve heard today about wearing pantyhose on a motorbike. My friend told me that in Vietnam women wear pantyhose even in hot weather and go to work riding the bike in their fancy shoes, skirts, and so on. Of course, that means that the quality of pantyhose must be much higher in order to resist such activities.
Someone suggested that maybe they wear opaque hosiery that is more durable while riding… no, it can be very hot in Vietnam, but women still wear sheer hosiery to work for professionalism.
I have a good Vietnamese friend who tells me all these things. She is very educated and she loves to wear tights / pantyhose. Turns out that Vietnam is very progressive in terms of their equality when it comes to education. Both men and women study and build careers.
Such women in pantyhose and office wear on a motorbike is common sight in Vietnam. Do you want to see more entertaining posts like this?
