Sexy Hosiery & Tights For Women
When you think of women’s hosiery, ‘sexy’ might not be the first word that comes to mind. You might be more likely to think of business casual or other professional wear. However, hosiery is not just for practical or professional affairs.
Sheer tights—which are also widely known as pantyhose—have a long history. Their invention in the late 1950s actually catalyzed a revolution in the women’s fashion industry. Throughout the 1950s and for many decades before, women were expected to wear thigh-high stockings or other garments for leg coverage. Most of these garments were extremely uncomfortable and some even limited women’s mobility while they were wearing these restrictive pieces.
When pantyhose were invented in 1959, women felt like they had more control over what they could wear. Pantyhose were much more comfortable and convenient than traditional thigh-high stockings. Plus, these sheer tights could be paired practically with skirts that had shorter hemlines because they came all the way up to the wearer’s waist rather than stopping at the knees or mid-thighs like traditional stockings. Pantyhose quickly became a trendy fashion statement and eventually came to represent freedom and youthfulness among women.
While it might seem outdated at this point in time, hosiery is actually making a major comeback in the lingerie industry. In fact, women’s hosiery can make a very sexy addition to any lingerie look when paired with the right pieces.
