The Buzz About: Pantyhose

via People Magazine
While browsing through the news today (ahem...People Magazine) I read an article about Kate Middleton bringing sheer pantyhose back in style. I was aware that royals almost always wear pantyhose to functions, but I couldn't imagine actually doing it myself.

After reading most of the comments, it seemed like there are many people who wear pantyhose daily, either for work or just around. Not just tights, but sheer pantyhose. Now I love me some tights in the winter, when it's cold. And not 100 degrees out. And not to work. But maybe I'm in the minority.

How do you feel about pantyhose?

  1. I have heard about this trend. Honestly, I am seriously hoping that it doesn't catch. I mean, could you imagine possibly wear sheer hose in this heat?!? Ridiculous.

  4. Yuuucckkk....I cringe at the thought of pantyhouse! I'll wear the cutesy kind in the winter, but that's my limit!

    By the way, I just found your blog...and based on your 'about me', we may be the same person...Except I'm addicted to Coke Zero, not DC.

  5. When I came to work at my current company, they had just relaxed the dress code. Before that, men had to wear a tie daily and women had to wear closed-toed heels and panthose.

    I am always pale, though, so I wouldn't mind if they came back in style - might make my legs look better!

  7. I know we've talked about this but I feel like I should weigh in for the record. I was very much against pantyhose in my 20s, but because of the constant a/c, the great progress designers have made in comfort and style, and my profession, I wear some sort of tights/pantyhose every time I wear a skirt. I don't find it adds much warmth, if any, but helps my pale legs not look so... well, you know. I also feel more comfortable in a business setting, where I am usually the only female, if my legs aren't bare. But this really is a new thing for me, 5 years ago I would have said hell no. :)

  8. I wear pantyhose all the time, underneath my business suits, and I'm a guy. I like they way they feel, and I've never figured out exactly why so many women hate wearing them. A good-fitting pair of pantyhose is no problem.
