3 Ways to Choose Color Stockings or Tights - wikiHow
Thank you for your time. Garland, TX. I now understand why most women love pantyhose — they felt so slippery and nice against our new sheets that I was really taken. I loved the way they felt and have slept in them ever since. Well, one day I decided to wear the hose with a pair slacks to work. When I got home, I realized that my legs were not sore from running around the office all day.
In the past hosiery was something desirable to wear. It was regarded as expensive, feminine, sexy and ladylike. No outfit was complete without the right pair of hosiery no matter the occasion or weather. This has changed - and not for the better. Hosiery has become in fashion almost an afterthought or what you can't avoid in wearing in cold weather or what you wear when you are of age.
Since I'm in my 60's now, I am uncomfortable in dresses without hosiery. Is it ok to wear them now? Or is bare legged still the trend? Three cheers for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge who brought nude hose back en vogue.
