For Sale: Silks Desire Legging With Lace Trim [Style #19906]

[This style is for sale at my Phantom Hosiery web site.]

This garment is designed to have lace go from the middle of the lower leg to the ankle, for a nice feminine touch. Most customers, if not all, will like the non-lace portions, because they feel very smooth to the touch.

The manufacturer did say, "leggings", on the package, but customers should be aware that the garment is best thought of as footless hosiery. This means that it is even more important to cover the hip area with a long shirt or a skirt or a pair of shorts. Sometimes, footless hosiery has a gusset or run guard, whereas genuine leggings tend to have fewer visible features. On a more positive note, this garment has no inseam running down the legs, which make them nicer to look at.

Although the size chart below does mention 4′10″, shorter people should be aware that Silks Desire tends to be longer than might be assumed. Shorter customers would be wise to send a message, stating your inseam length, before purchasing, so that we can help you to figure out whether it will actually fit.

To figure out whether or not this style will fit you, measure your inseam, and then subtract the distance from your heel to where you want the hosiery to stop. For most people, the middle of the ankle is about 6″ above the bottom of the foot, so if you have a 34″ inseam, then you can wear unstretched hosiery that is 28″, give or take a few inches, since the garment stretches.

Silks Desire is a Canadian brand of hosiery that was inspired by European hosiery to bring a touch of class to our beloved country.

TIL: Pantyhose Was A Main Feature Of The Music Video "These Boots Are Made For Walkin" By Nancy Sinatra

I never imagined that this song would show so much leg, let alone hosiery clad leg. I wish that I could just run my hands over it all. I think that it is easy to miss that aspect of the video, because most of people my age or younger probably have not seen the video and because the video never mentions hosiery at all.

Cool.

Gals, please dress like that for your guys.

Thank you for reading!

Bad News For Celebrity Hosiery Trends?

There are still stars out there, wearing hosiery, which is a reason to cheer. Unfortunately, the gossip news has been reporting that more celebrities are going bare legged, even in these cold months. Even Taylor Swift is photographed in that article.

I think that this is not good, but I also think that hosiery still has a fighting chance. What about you? Do you think that it is becoming more popular? have you seen more women wear it? Have you seen more guys wear hosiery?

Thank you for reading!

Sophie Austin in White Stay-Ups With Lace Bands

Halloween is always a time for scarey costumes or sexy outfits, or both. Some costumes are cool. Others are not.

You tell me. In the photo below, does Sophie give us a treat of eye candy or has she played a trick on us and given us eye sores?

Had Hosiery Dream

It was so weird. It was almost like an episode of "Three's Company".

During part of the dream, I hid amongst a group of women, who seemed to be wearing pants.

I was not under a table, at first, but as dreams go, that changed for no apparent reason. I was crouched down, and not on my feet, which means my shins were on the ground, and the soles of my feet were facing up. For some odd reason, 1 of them started singing and rubbing 1 of my arms with her foot. I expected her to stop and/or to move her foot, but she kept going, so I assumed that she believed that she was touching a part of her body that was numb.

Then for no apparent reason, another woman started doing it, but she stroked the sole of my foot. I must say that it felt quite nice.

Somehow, I appeared in another of the dream world, which means that I got out. There were no problems, so I assumed that I got out safely.

It was so funny.

Got Dishwashing Job

This past Friday was my first day.

They provide a uniform, so there is no real significant opportunity to wear shorts and hosiery at work.

I could show up in shorts and hosiery, and then get changed, but I get so sweaty on the way, due to the weather, and then sweat more at work. I would rather just change into the pants that they provide before I leave the house.

I thought about wearing support hosiery, while there. I find that my legs feel swollen, even though they probably are not that bad at all. Unfortunately, the hot kitchen makes my legs sweaty, and then the pants grip my legs so much. On a positive note, it would mean that I would have an excuse to try out a pair of hosiery from my own stock.

The thing that you and I are most interested in is whether or not the staff would accept me, even though I wear hosiery. I think that they would, because they are an extremely friendly group, and I respect the fact that they introduce themselves to me instead of waiting for me to introduce myself to them.

I will probably hang out with them eventually, if I stay at the job long enough. Maybe then they will find out about me wearing hosiery.

Thank you for reading!

Tried Sell Hosiery At A Festival

On Saturday, I was given a booth/table to sell stuff. I brought out the Canadian Legging hosiery, because I did not want to risk damaging my Silks hosiery and Energizers hosiery. I have been to a flea market before, but this is the first time that I actually put some effort into getting organized. I tried to get a table cloth ready, and a kit box to hold it and the pantyhose. I also tried to get a bit of spare change.
