A few weeks ago at a bridal shower, a friend pointed to my legs and said in a voice of astonishment, “You’re wearing pantyhose!”
She was right. It’s true.
As the world has turned against pantyhose, I embrace them. Here’s why.
- In cooler weather, they keeps my legs at least somewhat warm.
- They smooth out all imperfections in the skin on my legs. Pantyhose cover pokey veins too.
- Dress shoes eat my feet. When I wear pantyhose, I have no trouble with blisters. I know I could wear the footie things, but they slip down. Plus they hide in my dresser drawers, never to be found again.
I don’t find pantyhose uncomfortable like so many women do. I buy a size that fits me well.
I don’t wear them in the summer. They definitely are hot. But the rest of the year, I’m a pantyhose girl.
Menopause brings bravery and a what the hell attitude (some of the time). Yet I am definitely interested in staying stylish and watching the nerd appeal as I age.
So what to do? Wear them or not?
I’ve decided to be a pantyhose nerd. I wear super nude shades (to try to hid the fact I’m wearing them) and in the winter, black sometimes, which I swear still looks stylish under the right dresses.
What about you? Are you a pantyhose nerd or do you hate them? Do tell!
