Pantyhose: Yes or No?

Pantyhose... Yes or No?

You thought I was kidding about the pantyhose thing yesterday, didn’t you?  Well, think again.

Call me old-fashioned, but

I actually LIKE wearing stockings (and yes, that includes the nude, control-top, reinforced toe contraptions that used to come in a plastic egg, circa-1986) and have done so for years.  However, I’m fully aware that some women find them terribly dated and uncomfortable.

So my friends, on which side of the fence do you lie when it comes to the great pantyhose debate?

    I live in South Florida so that would be a no no for me, it’s way to hot for the extra layer lol. But I don’t think it’s dated.

    Yes, I actually like wearing pantyhose too. They can finish off certain outfits perfectly. They also add considerable warmth (important in Montana).

    I had no idea they were SO “out of date” until I started following fashion blogs. I’m pretty pale, and I’ve always worn stockings, I never thought they were that bad! They’re not uncomfortable and occasionally people will be surprised that I’m wearing them, because they look fairly natural. I’ll keep wearing them even if everyone else stops, I don’t have a reason not to!

      I didn’t realize they were considered “outdated” either until I moved to NYC from Michigan. But I’m right there with you, and will continue rocking them as long as I think they look good.

    I like wearing pantyhose also. I think the trick is to get the right look–ie. sheer, opaque, thin, etc–for the right outfit. I love rocking sheer pantyhose that match my skin tone and people compliment me on how “smooth” my legs are because they don’t realize I’m rocking tights. As far as them being uncomfortable, I get that. Sometimes they like to sag, which I hate but I always purchase my panthose a size or two larger, which helps. I feel at home in stockings…then again, it could be the ballerina in me. I danced for most of my childhood so the science of hoisery has been my life lol.

      You are so right. If you get the right pair, people usually can’t even tell you’re wearing them, and sizing up definitely helps.

    A definite yes! The add polish to an outfit especially if you don’t have perfect legs.

    I agree, I like pantyhose! They make an outfit look more put together in my opinion.

    I’ve become a tights girl in the past year. I noticed a lot of fashion bloggers I followed were fans of We Love Colors. I wanted to become more adventurous and incorporate more color and variety into my wardrobe so I placed an order for some black, turquoise, and blue tights. I’m still hooked! They’re one of the few things that makes winter tolerable for me.
