Tights and Stockings and Pantyhose… Oh, My!

Casual Friday Legwear

Although “Casual Fridays” are slowly – and thankfully – retiring from the corporate world, many women continue to go to the office or an evening out barelegged. Dresses and stilettos may still be in vogue, but where is the legwear? As a career woman who considers tights, stockings, pantyhose, and their cousins de rigueur, I want to take this opportunity to sing the praises of legwear.

I know that some women argue that legwear is as constricting for women as neckties are for men, but I find it liberating. What I wear on my legs is an extension of the clothes, shoes, and accessories I choose to wear. Just as I wouldn’t want to go to work without my make-up, I wouldn’t dream of going to work with bare legs.

The sheer variety of women’s legwear that is available is enough to blow your socks off (no pun intended). There’s something out there for every mood and every occasion. If you’re in doubt, simply peruse one of the online stores that is dedicated to providing women with high quality products. When you do, here’s what you’ll find:

Tights: Today’s tights come in an incredible variety of fabrications, from warm wools to velvety cottons to silky microfiber blends. You can find fashion tights in dozens of colors and prints that can complement every outfit in your closet. Whether you want to ward off a winter chill or show some spunk in the summer, tights are a wonderful way to express your fashion sense and your sense of style.

Pantyhose: There’s little question that pantyhose put the finishing touches on any outfit. From ultra-sheer to opaque, from neutral colors to brazen hues, from industrial reinforced toes to shimmery gossamer, pantyhose can reflect your mood, your apparel, or your aspirations.

Thigh-Highs: If you love the silky feeling of hose against your legs but don’t want to bother with either garters or the panties in pantyhose, holdups are exactly what you need. Whether you choose wide lace bands or soft silicone tops that lay flat against your skin, thigh-highs will never let you down.

Stockings: The allure of stockings is legendary, not only for the men they attract but for the feelings that women have when they wear them. Stockings and garters are the ultimate in femininity, but when you go one step further and choose a silk stocking, you’ll never go back. Wearing stockings is like being privy to an inside joke…. No one else need know you’re wearing them, but they will bring a smile to your face all day long.

Bodystockings: Some women would never dream of buying bodystockings, but that’s likely because they’ve never worn them. Granted, they may not be appropriate for every occasion, but like stockings, they will make you feel both chic and sexy.

When there are so many options available to complete your outfits and make you feel good all under, leaving your legs bare is a crying shame.

Sexy Thigh High Stockings

Feeling good and looking good often go hand-in-hand and this is why so much attention is focused on appearance and in particular fashion. Dressing well is one of the best ways you can increase your confidence and give a better impression of yourself. Each year new fashion trends come and go but there are certain items of clothing that are always fashionable. One of the best examples of this is thigh high stockings.

Thigh high stockings have been popular for centuries – first being introduced in the late 16th Century. The reason for the popularity of thigh high stockings is due to them being extremely versatile and being sexy as well as classy. They work in a number of different combinations with a lot of women wearing them as an alternative to pantyhose. One of the reasons for this is that they are known to lessen the chance of deep venous thrombosis and therefore reduce the appearance of varicose veins.

Plenty of women will wear thigh high socks to make them feel sexy. Not only do they feel sexy but it’s known that plenty of men find women in stockings very attractive. They are a great way to accentuate the curves in your legs as they cling to your thighs. Often thigh high stockings are worn with a skirt that shows where they end but they can be worn with any type of dress or skirt to add a feeling of style and elegance.

Thigh high stockings, or thigh-high tights as they are sometimes known, are available in a number of different heel and toe options. These include French heel, sandal foot, and Cuban heel. They are very often worn with a garter belt. A garter belt is simply a piece of fabric which is attached to the stockings and worn around the waist to hold the stockings up. This is a great way to give a more sexy look to the stockings. Garter belts are available in a number of different fabrics depending on what type of look you’re going for. If you want to get a ‘vintage stockings’ look then it is a good idea to go for a more lacy fabric for both the stockings themselves and the garter belt.

If you’re shopping online for your thigh high stockings there are tonnes of great places to buy from. Just make sure you read up about the type of material and the color as it can sometimes vary. Of course, you don’t have to buy online – there are a lot of great high street stores that sell thigh high stockings and a lot of them have sales on so you can pick up a bargain while you’re there. The advantage of buying from a shop rather than online is that you can see the stockings in person and feel the material to check you’re happy with them.

Thigh high stockings are an excellent addition to your wardrobe and a great way to look and feel sexy without spending a fortune. They are available in many colors and types of fabric so you can have a wide selection of stockings to suit any occasion.

Fashion is something that’s always changing. However, there are certain fashion staples that will always be popular. One such example is thigh high tights. Thigh high tights have been popular since the late sixteenth century although the way they are worn and how much choice there is has changed dramatically since then. Historically they have been away for women to accentuate their legs and provide class and elegance to their look. They are worn for the same reasons today though they have expanded and are used in many fashion settings you would not have seen in the past.

Thigh high tights, also known as ‘thigh high socks’, ‘thigh-high leggings’ or ‘thigh high stockings’, are not only a way to add elegance and style to an outfit but they also serve a very practical purpose. They support the legs and lower body and are worn by many women as a safer and more practical alternative to pantyhose. They are generally worn with short or long skirts, the idea is to enhance the curves of the legs whilst also hiding any unsightly blemishes. Often, they are worn with a garter belt, which is a piece of material attached to the stockings to hold them up. Alternatively, there are stockings which stay up by themselves by having a tight piece of elastic at the top of them. Whilst this comes with the advantage of having no straps showing it can be uncomfortable if worn for long periods of time as well as being bad for circulation.

Thigh-high tights come in a great number of colors, styles, and fabrics. The type you choose will depend on what occasion they are being worn for. Often women will wear fun, colorful thigh high socks if they’re going out with friends. These are especially popular with teenagers. For a more elegant look, many women like to wear sheer stockings with a garter belt. This is seen as a very sexy look and many men say they find women in stockings to be very sexy. When worn in this setting – red, black and sheer are classic choices.

If you’re interested in purchasing thigh high tights there are a lot of places to purchase them from. If you decide to get them online you can find them at Lingerie By Jean Lesley. However, it is not always ideal to purchase online as you cannot fully judge the fabric or color as you would if being there in person. But if you have purchased similar items in the past online then that would be a great way to go.

Thigh High Socks

Thigh high socks have been a fashion classic for centuries. They add elegance and style to any outfit and provide a myriad of choices to suit any occasion. Often thigh high socks are thought of as a hosiery item, as they are sometimes called ‘thigh high stockings’ or ‘thigh-high tights’.
