Hosiery Preference
Wed, 02-17-2010 - 12:48pm
I have noticed more and more women going sans hosiery with skirts, even in dressy situations. Personally I don't feel dressed up without some form of hosiery on. The few of my friends that follow this trend tell me it is because they hate pantyhose. Personally I do as well but I generally wear thigh highs. What about the rest of you?

I am not a big fan of panty hose, either. If I'm dressing up with hose I wear thigh tops, too. I am another who doesn't feel fully dressed without some type of hose.

I am another one that doesn't feel dressed up without hose either and am trying to impart that on my daughters. I vary between pantyhose and thigh highs depending on the outfit. I really don't mind pantyhose but DH finds thigh highs sexier so I indulge him when I can.

I wear hosiery as needed. I mostly wear pants so the issue doesn't come up often. If I'm wearing a shorter skirt, I always wear pantyhose. If I'm wearing a longer skirt, I'll wear thigh-highs

Hi Deirdre!

I agree with you...my own preference is hosiery with a dress

As a guy, I don't "get" to wear hosiery, lol.

I've noticed a lot of girls going with the bare legs look even in professional settings and I honestly don't think it's appropriate.

When I'm wearing sandals, I do not wear pantyhose/thigh highs but if I'm wearing closed toe shoes, I do. I think that wearing them makes my shoes fit a lot better and walking in heels much more bearable.

I've been curious on trying these airbrush leg makeup by Sally Hansen

Anyone tried them yet?

It does a good job as long as you take pains to smooth it out. It'll last for several days, or even for a shower or two as long as you don't really scrub your legs.
