Shiny Hosiery Support or Not

Shiny Hosiery is one of my favorite type of pantyhose to wear as a fashion statement for me legs with all my outfits. As the fall weather begins, shiny hosiery of all kinds are sure to be spotted out and about.  Whether it is opaque tights or sheer pantyhose the fall season does start the beginning of the hosiery season!

Why Shiny Hosiery Not Popular

Perhaps the reason hosiery is part of many women’s fall/winter wardrobe is simply for warmth so their legs do not freeze.  However, I believe that if women have the luxury of seeing all the many brands and styles that are available today, they may have a change of heart.  I think there are two main reasons women have been turned off of hosiery, one being the original 100% nylon “one size fits all” type and second being the simple fact of purchasing the wrong size.

Let’s take a closer look at these possibilities.  One of the most uncomfortable feelings is having your tights (I personally remember this as a young girl) hanging in the crotch!  You spend a majority of your time pulling them up, but to no avail.  Now add this discomfort to the scratchy feeling of 100% nylon against your skin! No wonder a majority of women do not like or wear hosiery.

Now on the other hand, if a woman has the resource and ability to experience some of the finer brands and styles she may change her mind and be more receptive to wearing hosiery. Nothing feels better against your skin then a properly fitting of shiny, silky pantyhose.  I speak from experience, being a woman who wears them all the time with everything! Aside from the way you can get them to fit you and the fabulous materials they use in this finer brands, durability is another great feature!  Most of the time the less expensive brands are good for one wearing where the finer ones can be washed several times for numerous wears.  I keep referring to finer brands and styles, now let’s look at some of these brands and styles

Falke Shelina Hipster Tights

Wolford offers a huge array of styles.  Whether it be an opague pair of velvety tights of a sheer pair of shiny pantyhose.  They have it all! There prices range from about $20.00 up (way up, lol). Sizing goes from XS to XL.   I do have to say the durability is also incredible.  I have a pair of black opague tights that have lasted 8 years!

Falke, Pretty Polly, Cecelia de Rafael and Charnos just to mention a few all offer superior quality in an array of styles.  Cecelia de Rafael for example has a large selection of super shiny hosiery!  I mean some styles that make your legs look flawless with a shine that looks so natural, like you just oiled your legs! Falke offers an awesome style that are “hipsters”.  These are perfect for the current fashion trend.  Pretty Polly and Charnos have a couple of styles that offer some of the shiniest hosiery I have ever tried.

    Great comments Sweet. It’s most exciting hearing your thoughts on pantyhose and the sincerity you speak with. Speaking as a man with an ernormious fetish for attractive women wearing phose, a few other brand that I find have a great shine are Levante,Leg Avenue, Givenchy and some Victoria Secrets. Depending on the denier or thickness,the support and compression element comes about. Actually 15 to 20 denier are some of my favorite to view and touch. They seem to be more durable as well after wash and wear.

    Thanks for the great conversation and all the attention you give to hosiery, sheer hosiery at that. It’s always a pleasure seeing you and hearing your thoughts.

    What are some of your favorite sites to shop that offer the best values in phose?
