Updated Gabriella Hipsters Hosiery Review

I added in 2 items to the review. I mentioned that it has a gusset, and that it is 20 denier.

Hosiery Review: Mondor

When I first saw this hosiery, I was a little bit unhappy, because I usually do not like patterned hosiery, and because the patterns appeared quite feminine. However, when I tried them on, I was pleasantly surprised about the smooth and silky inner surface. The rest of my post tells you why I recommend it for men under certain circumstances and for women under most circumstances. While I have your attention, be sure to see the last photo of the innovate gusset.

Hosiery Review: Gabriella Hipsters

I am glad that I waited to type out the review for this. Having smooth hand skin allows me to enjoy touching it more. By the way, I have a small surprise for you at the end of the blog post. The rest of my post tells you all.

2 Boxes Of Hosiery Arrived

I feel like a child on Christmas morning, who still feels the wonder and magic of the season.

Yesterday, a new shipment finally arrived after a long wait. I knew that some of the products that I ordered were not in the shipment, but that is okay.

Since there were 2 boxes, it was nice to guess which box contained which items. I was wrong.

Because I ordered so long ago, I forgot that I ordered Energizers Medium Support Tights in grey, and so it was such a nice surprise to see it buried underneath the other pairs of hosiery.

I was especially happy to receive Energizers Medium Support Tights in grey [i.e.: graphite colour]. This means that I now have a wider variety in my shop. Most importantly, though, it means that I have a wider variety of my favourites. I do not expect this sell at all, and I bought it for me.

Hosiery Dream

Earlier today, I dreamt that I showed up to a formal evening in hosiery and shorts. I cannot believe embarrassed I felt. Even if I wore my best shorts, it still would not compensate for whatever I wore on top. I think that it was a nice business casual shirt, but still.

People seemed friendly, and accepting, but it did not seem good enough for me. I have a feeling that many of you might feel embarrassed too.

If you saw somebody wearing shorts and hosiery at a formal event, that was not tuxedo event, then would you respect that person?

Hosiery Advocate's Boutique Still Doing Well

In October and the first part of Nombember, Hosiery Advocate's Boutique has been doing so well, that I ran out of a couple of style-colour-size combinations. That's exciting, considering both of the combinations were slow sellers. There was also the combination from before. I placed a couple of orders to bring me back to full inventory, and even had to order a lot of stamps from Canada Post.

I was fortunate to have a new big buyer find me, and she has the potential to become a loyal buyer. I even had a guy express interest in buying. We will have to see what happens with him, though.

I see brighter days at the boutique! Thank you for reading!

Semi Opaque Hosiery As Pants

To celebrate my quitting a painful job, I went to the mall to treat myself to a smoothie and a sundae. Whenever I go to the mall, I usually like to people watch. I always try to keep an eye out for the girls and their legs.

I could not help but notice that a girl wore semi opaque hosiery with a long shirt. In fact, I would not really call it a long shirt, since it was so short, that her shirt accidentally got pulled up, and revealed her underwear. Underneath her hosiery, were blue or turquoise panties. :^D

I think that she wore reinforced or smooth to waist hosiery.

I must say that I do find it attractive and appalling at the same time. I think that we need to be more modest, but the lustful guy in me always seeks out these girls in public. :^D I also kind of appreciate the boldness that they have.

That being said, modesty is more important.

Could any of you tolerate the fashion of wearing hosiery with no dress, long shirt, skirt, shorts, or pants??

Thank you for reading!

I Quit The Factory Job

As bad as it is to quit a job, I was about to be let go, any ways. I could have worked harder, but I have been trying for over 3 months with not much progress. Quitting and avoiding 1 to 2 weeks of agony was worth it.

The reason that I share this with you is to announce that I now have smoother hand skin. It is not the most exciting news, but it is interesting to me.

Thanksgiving Gathering And Fiore Tights

I decided to wear footed hosiery this time. I think that the only hosiery that I wore to my family gatherings have been footless hosiery. I am too lazy to check my previous entries. Since I have not epilated in many weeks, I decided to go with something opaque.

At the time that I decided what to wear, I did not like Raisa hosiery too much, since it did not feel as smooth, and it appeared to be like cotton hosiery, which appears rough. However, I thought that it might be an ideal style to wear, since I did not want to ruin my favourite hosiery by walking on carpet.

[Be sure to read my hosiery review for Raisa by Fiore.]

product photo

It turned out to be for the best, because you could see some skin, when the legs were bent, but you could not see the hairs very well.

I have changed my mind about them. Although they look and feel a tiny bit rough, they are soft too, and they are ideal for guys who want to wear footed hosiery, without shaving legs. You still get a smooth appearance [smooth to waist, in fact!], while not having to worry about hairy legs under hosiery. I think that this should be thought of as the average guy's hosiery. I highly recommend it.

An interesting thing happened. When I was sitting down to eat, my brother was sitting on the floor, and I was sitting on a chair next to him. He tapped my leg with the back of his hand to get my attention to speak to me, but I did not realize it at first. I thought that he touched me by accident. This shows me that he has come a long ways in his acceptance of me wearing, and is even willing to tough my legs. I think that it is just a matter of time before people accept men wearing hosiery, but we have to maintain masculinity in our outfits.

A good lesson: be persistent. We do not want to repeat the same failed attempts, but we do want to keep trying slightly modified ideas.

Cosplay With Brown Opaque Hosiery?

Do you enjoy wearing costumes? If you want to add a touch of brown to it, then now is the time to try out some Canadian hosiery at a discount.

I am sure that the costs of buying costumes adds up after a while. Keep your costs down with brown opaque hosiery in size 2 at warehouse prices. These particular pairs come with a waistband-free panty.

Feel free to ask any questions.

Will Order More Hosiery Waistband-free Hosiery

Within 13 days of the last 17 days, I have received 4 orders. That totally surprised me. I am actually very shocked that it all worked out so well. Each of the orders were for hosiery that I had in stock. It felt good to be able to reduce quantities of hosiery that seem to move slowly.

I have so many pairs, that I am not sure that I can ever finish using them before I die.

Jessica, of Fantasy Stockings, said that once the weather cools down, I should be getting more hosiery. This seems to be the case.

Therefore, I am tempted to order more hosiery from the manufacturer. The problem is that ordering too much of some product means that my money is used for hosiery that might never sell, or it might sell slowly.

I must have spent around an hour playing with some numbers to see how I might be able to deal with the problem. I think that I figured it out. I will not give any clues, because I do not want to help my competitors, unless they pay for consulting services. I can say, though, that the stock will be kept low enough to keep me happy, if I closed the business today. I will have many pairs to use up, but the amount will be much lower than I have kept in the past.

This means that I can keep my business going indefinitely. I am happy about that, because keeping hosiery available for customers is 1 of the best ways to advocate hosiery.

Wearing Pants Instead Of Shorts To Work

I feel like I have done the unthinkable.

From the waist down, I wear longjohns and a windbreaker type of pants. Those work well. I am warm enough to sweat, while walking and running to the bus.

From the waist up, I wear an undershirt under turtle neck, which is under a t-shirt, which is under an ugly sweater if necessary, and under a jacket as necessary. I take the sweater and jacket off, when working on the machinery, and keep them on, when I am just removing products from the machine.

The weather got so cold, and the factory felt worse. The factory shipping doors are left open so that clean air can blow through. This means that even with thick hosiery, I feel like I am in a cold freezer. I do not think that we have any heaters.

I feel a bit guilty, because I have often said that we should wear hosiery in cold weather as well. After all, hosiery is supposed to keep us warm, and for the most part, this is true. I went an entire year wearing hosiery outdoors. It is possible, but we have to bundle up with a coat, when going outside.

In a factory, this is not always possible, because sometimes, we need to put our arms into the machine, and it is not safe to do that with long sleeves.

Unfortunately, the pants have just got holes in the right pocket. I know that I can fix it, but is it worth it? You tell me. The waistband is falling apart. There are other holes in the same pocket. I doubt that spending time sewing it is worth while. That being said, the leg part of the pants are doing well, so if I strengthen the seam of the pocket, I would get a lot of use out of the pants.

In the mean time, I will go back to wearing shorts and hosiery again, unless I come up with a different plan. If my legs get too wet from the wind, rain, and snow, then I could wear the pants under the shorts.

I thought a lot about why it seemed so easy to wear hosiery and shorts during -20 C weather, yet it seemed so difficult to do it during work. I think that it is because of the air blowing through. With flowing air, we have a wind chill, and even with temperatures above 15 C, it can really take away our body heat. Normally, when going outside, we do not stand still. We are often going to the bus stop or wherever. This allows us to move, which generates heat. In the factory, I am moving too, but not enough. I typically stay in only one small area.

I suppose that I could wear fleece hosiery, but I prefer to save them for special occasions.

After going through all of this, I do not feel so obligated to wear hosiery all the time. It is like a burden has been lifted off my shoulders. We will see what happens.

At Hosiery Advocate's Boutique, I always try to do quality assurance on everything that comes in.

Smoother Hands Now

My factory job has been causing havoc on my hands. I thought that I would never be able to enjoy stroking smooth hosiery ever again, or at least not until I quit my job. I guess that I was wrong.

I have been fighting back by rubbing in petroleum jelly into my hands, after each hand wash, and it has been helping a lot. Now, when I touch my hosiery legs, my hands barely snag the fabric. Because the fabric is so tough, the mild roughness does not cause any damage.

I am looking forward to happier days.

Sheer Hosiery And Open Toe Shoes

There is nothing much to see here. The person writing in is eager to wear hosiery with open toe shoes, and the expert says that it is not really okay, but that sheer skin colours are better than black sheers. I find that interesting. I thought that black sheers would always be considered classic and modern.

It is good to know that there is more interest. Even the experts are warming up to the trend. I look forward to this autumn's hosiery.

Christ's Rapture And Surplus Tights

There are lots of YouTube videos about Christ coming soon. I began to wonder about Christ came before I could use up all of my hosiery. I have so many new pairs that have not even been opened yet.

Making Grey Footless Out Of Good Condition Hosiery

I decided to do the unthinkable: cut up the toe portions of hosiery to make footless hosiery, even though they are still in great condition. I figure that if I were to make a good impression on onlookers, then I would need to vary my outfits, otherwise people might think that I am wearing the same pairs every day. That means using hosiery that is not black on some days, and black on others.

The pair that I am about to cut up is more expensive than the average hosiery that I wear. It is full of lines that are not pin stripes. I think that the manufacturer did a poor job on it. Even though it is more expensive than the average pair, I do not think that I would wear it for any special ocassion, due to the unusual stripes, and due to the feel of the fabric, so I would be getting better use out of it as footless hosiery at work.

Have you ever cut up a good pair on purpose?

Somebody Looked At My Legs Maybe

While waiting in line for the bus, on Saturday morning, to come home, I noticed that somebody looked down towards my legs. I do not know if that is exactly what she was looking at, but I tried to pretend that I did not notice.

I was wearing my grey mostly opaque hosiery.

Later, I checked out my leg to see what might have been staring at for so long. It turns out that I got a run, and that might have caught her attention and alerted her to the fact that I was wearing hosiery.

I think that our message is getting out there.

Movie: The Dark Knight Rises

I was thoroughly impressed by Anne Hathaway's performance in The Dark Knight Rises, during my birthday weekend. You probably all ready know the role that she plays, but I am surprised that the movie never mentioned her character's alter ego name. In other words, we see her normal given name, but that is all that we see, unless I missed it completely.

I will not describe any of her outfits or when they appear, because I do not want to give any spoilers, but they are so worth your time. I recommend it on DVD or Netflix or TV, where you can pause and watch in slow motion.

I think that they overdid her action scenes, because she does not strike me as a believable action star.

That being said, her looks and performance look good. In my opinion, she exudes a glamour that reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. She also displays a convincing performance, that is suitable to her character's struggles and desires.

The truth is that I find that all the characters in this film have a more down to earth aspect to them.

Regarding the overall story, I thought that it was pretty interesting. I do not know what the comic was like, so I cannot make a fair comparison. Do any of you read comics? If so, then how do you feel about it? Is the Dark Knight version of Batman consistent with the original comics?

Choosing Hosiery For Work

I am debating with myself about what footless hosiery to wear to work. I think that the job is going to make my skin so rough, that it would be pointless to wear hosiery that feels nice to the touch. It would only get wornout much faster, and I will not be able to enjoy the smooth texture.

Therefore, I am planning on wearing the pair of footless hosiery that I like the least. Oddly enough, it is the most expensive pair. It seems to feel the least pleasant and the most uncomfortable.

A problem that I have is that I do not have any other pair of hosiery that I dislike enough and appears respectable enough that I can wear it to work. In other words, if I only wore what I disliked that looked respectable enough, then I will end up wearing 1 pair. I am concerned that people might think that I never changed my clothes.

Maybe I just have to be prepared to kiss the grey footless hosiery goodbye, even though I like it. Maybe I just need to appreciate the good times, and not hold on forever.

An option is to wear pants, but that would mean not showing people that men wear hosiery. Then again, if I wear opaque hosiery, then most of them would never notice, anyways. Therefore, wearing pants might be a better option. Then again, if I wear pants, then I would need to find 2 pairs of them, so that people will not think worse of me, and finding 2 pairs of pants that I do not like is similar to finding 2 pairs of hosiery that I do not like.

If you have advice, then please do share.

Zooey Wears Different Black Hosiery

A fashion critic criticizes Zooey Deschanel's choice of hosiery. Zooey is 1 of my favourite hosiery wearing gals, because her looks appear so normal, and she is so pleasant on the eyes. So, the article got me a little bit upset. Judging by the comments at the bottom of the page, it appears that I am not the only person. I think that their comments pretty much just settle the debate, but here are a few photos that prove that we are right.

It is hard to tell in some photos, because of the lighting, but the critic should do some research before expressing his opinion.

To Zooey and my readers, keep wearing hosiery all year long, and keep your legs silky and smooth!

Hosiery On My Birthday

And so, the weekend has come to pass, and my birthday is come and gone.

This year, I felt like wearing old hosiery, which I would not have to worry about, since my thumbs are really worn out and rough. I decided against it, and treated my myself to a fun hosiery day. I wore 1 of my favourite opaques.

Unfortunately, I do not have a style name to share with you. I was given them by an ESL student, and the label does not say anything other than "Donna Karen New York" [and not DKNY] and the size. I guess that they do not care if we buy them again.

This pair was given to me long time ago, before I started blogging about hosiery, if I recall correctly.

I expected the hosiery to be soft and silky, and it is, but it feels harder than what I recall. I think, though, that that memory comes from the experiences of my Energizers Medium Support Tights. I love this, but I will not feel upset if I do not find a replacement, since Energizers Medium Support Tights seem to be the penultimate pair, that is soft, silky, and durable.

I hope that this does not sound like a sales pitch, even though it sort of is, but I happen to believe what I write, and it is not about the profits. I am happy to suggest going to my competitors, as well.

Anyhow, the Donna Karen hosiery are 1 of many favourite things that made my day special.

Wearing Hosiery At Work Update

So, other than a coworker asking me if I biked to work, my hosiery has not brought up many conversations; and not surprisingly, not any conversions.

The thing that bothered me the most is the fact that I seem to have very rough hands. Most of the joy of wearing hosiery is being able to touch my own hosiery clad legs every now and then. If I cannot do that, then it is almost pointless, unless I plan to wear support hosiery for circulation improvement.

I am not completely certain about how it happened, but I think that it is becasue my fingers are constantly handling new plastic, which absorbs, or at least removes, hand oils. Imagine touching a new napkin every minute. Sooner or later, your fingers are going to get really dry. I believe that it is the same with the plastic.

There is not much that I can do about it, though, except for maybe wear gloves. I think that I will try a pair of gloves to see what happens, since I have a spare pair of disposable gloves from my military days.

Hosiery Absorbs Moisture

Here is an interesting article that I want to read later: Yarn Conditioning Process : An Overview.

Hosiery enthusiasts are so accustomed to saying that nylon and spandex do not absorb moisture, but that seems to be untrue. It can absorb even the humidity in the air, which impacts yarn quality.

That does not mean that it can absorb enough moisture to cause problems with germs, but it is still worth looking into.

My Factory Job And Hosiery

So far, it has been a safe positive experience.

1 guy asked me if I biked there. I stated that I did not, and that I just like to dress this way. I never explained it much more. I think that it might be interesting to explain, but it would not be necessary.

An interesting aspect of wearing hosiery every day for a job is needing to think about what to wear. I do not want to wear my favourites, but I do not want to wear poor quality hosiery.

Also, since I wear steel toe safety work boots, I am tempted to convert several pairs of my hosiery into footless hosiery, otherwise my hosiery will wear out quickly.

Wearing Hosiery And Shorts At My New Job

It is not often that we men get to wear shorts and hosiery in public. I get to wear it to my new job, which I got on Tuesday, and started on Wednesday. The atmosphere is extremely casual. People wear shorts and jogging pants.

It is a factory job. I will operate a machine and keep it running to produce plastic bags.

Tomorrow, I have another job interview, so I will wear pants tonight, but I hope to wear sheers and shorts during the next shift.

I would love to read your thoughts on this! :^)

Epilated About A Week Ago

With summer here, I felt that it was somewhat inappropriate for me to constantly wear black completely opaque hosiery. It is fine for when I expect to be isolated and not interact with people in a significant way. I could be lazy on those days, but when I interact with people, I want to be able to dress in a lighter summery way.

Of course that means epilating. I spent probably an hour in a bath tub without water doing that epilating. It was painful, but it did not seem as painful as when I first tried it.

I think that it feels less painful, because of the technique. I try to not pull out a bunch of hair at the same time. I try to move the epilator in small strokes, and do a few hairs at a time. Also, when the small area gets removed, I try a completely different area to give the nerves a rest. Removing a few hairs does not cause problems, but removing all the hairs at once can create lasting pain.

Is this what you experience too?

Got Refund For Defective Products Without Shipping Refund

I was glad to see that I got money for the hosiery that I sent back to Doris Hosiery Mills. When I looked the notice over, I was very sad to see that they did not give me back the payment for shipping. This means that I lose money. I guess that shoppers tend to pay for their own "shipping" costs, when they return things to the department store, so maybe I will not worry about it too much.

It still bugs me, though, because I felt that it was their fault, and that I should not be inconvenienced at all.

I figured that that policy is a firm policy, and that I cannot do anything to change it. Therefore, I will just chalk it up as a learning experience, and learning is the main reason that I am doing this in the first place.

I think that I will still be further ahead, though, because I suspect that they will put some of those products on liquidation. If so, then I can buy them at a good discount, which means that my net costs will be lower.

However, for things like defective products that they cannot liquidate, I will prefer to sell it at cost, so that I can win over good customers, and so that I can save on the cost of shipping.

Wore Hosiery With No Underwear

For the first time, in a long time, I wore hosiery without underwear.

I usually wear underwear to provide a thicker layer between the skin and my outer clothes. It makes me feel like I am being more hygienic. Also, from past experience, I found that hosiery does not feel comfortable without underwear. Wearing underwear helps to provide padding between the hosiery and the skin.

I experimented with these.

Lately, I decided to try wearing it without underwear again, because I have noticed how soft and smooth the panty portion is of Energizers Medium Support Tights. I honestly would describe the inside of the panty portion as super soft to the touch.

Usually, before I step into the shower, I wash my hosiery so that I can wear it again after the shower. It will be a bit damp still, but the body heat helps it to dry fast.

Yesterday, before stepping into the shower, I decided to try it without underwear, since I was planning on washing it anyways. I was so impressed by how comfortable it was. I would describe it as velvety soft. I was so impressed.

After washing them, I got delayed, so I showered much later on, which means that there was enough time for my hosiery to dry. When I tried them on again without underwear, I found them to be much less comfortable. I honestly wonder if we have to break them in a little. In other words, maybe the hosiery needs to be used for a short period of time to loosen the fibres. I find that most clothes tend to be stiff when air dried.

Do you find this to be the case? Have you tried comparing?

I am sure that many of you wear hosiery without underwear. I would love to read about your wearing habits. Do you recommend it to others?

What do you want more information on? I ask, because I have been given the privilege of reviewing a couple of products from Oya Bodywear, which is a Canadian retailer. I am tempted to choose pairs of plain opaques, but I think that that might not be very interesting to us.

I also thought that patterned hosiery might be nice, as well. I have not done many reviews on patterned hosiery, and I have not photographed many outfits. It would be interesting to wear more patterned hosiery when I run errands.

I want these reviews to be for you and your benefit, and for Oya Bodywear's benefit. So, please take a moment to look through their hosiery to see what you want more information on, and then leave a comment below.

If you want more information on bodywear that is not hosiery, then feel free to leave a comment below. If you want information on female bodywear that is not hosiery, then I will not wear it, but I will still be willing to review it as best as I can.

Let us discuss this!

Marian Rivera Wears Opaque Hosiery With No Pants, Shorts, Or Skirt

She is an actress and model. I think that she is truly gorgeous. Her facial features and slim body are to die for. My favourite 2 photos are #4 and #5, because they show the sheen and are clear.

However, I encourage you to look down for a moment to see that she was strutting on a runway, with what seems ready to wear. On the other hand, it seems to be a mens fashion show. Maybe she was just eye candy, and maybe it was not ready to wear for women.

What do you think? Is her outfit suitable for a job interview?

Wore Firm Support Hosiery To Reduce Swelling

I ended up trying the firm support hosiery first.

Instead of using both legs, I decided to try 1 leg at a time over top the medium support sheers that I was all ready wearing. I tucked the spare leg in the panty portion. I pulled the panty portion to the top of the thigh.

My swollen ankle felt better almost immediately. I was really happy about that.

After ignoring it for some time, I noticed that the swelling did not continue to go down. I think that the firm support hosiery can only reduce it so much. Any hosiey can help with extreme swelling, but the last bit needs even more compression or other kinds of therapy.

An unfortunate thing that happened was the hosiery slipped down every now and then. That did not bother me, until I went outside to take out the trash. I did not want to give a bad impression, so I jogged back inside, and pulled it up. I noticed that the hosiery holds up okay on its own, but it struggles when the leg moves. I cannot say for sure how bad this is, because we are talking about full length hosiery on top of full length hosiery, which means that it is not surprising that it slips. Hold-up/stay-up stockings have an inner grip on the welt, but this is not true of full length hosiery.

I think that this might make an interesting test, though. I want to see how well hosiery holds up on the leg on top of another hosiery leg. I expect that some might hold well, since some of the spandex is exposed and since some hosiery is designed to stretch and stay in place.

As usual, you are welcome to comment.

Thank you for reading!

Swollen Ankle And Energizers Medium Support Hosiery

Since Monday, June 3, my ankle has been swollen. I did not realize it at the time. I thought that it was a matter of my ankle feeling sore from squatting. On Monday, I was acting in a movie for my first film acting credit, and I was asked to squat a lot.

Only on Saturday, did I realize that my ankle was swelling, since it seemed to feel bigger, and since it seemed to not move as easily. I wanted to use hot or cold things to reduce the swelling, since that is what people suggested, but I thought that this might be a good opportunity to try support hosiery first.

I had Energizers Medium Support sheer hosiery next in my lineup of hosiery that I wanted to wear. Therefore, I decided to give that a try first. So far, it does not seem to make a difference. The hosiery seems too loose. I like the way that the hosiery feels snug against my legs, but it does not seem to reduce swelling due to injuries.

I have not given up yet, though. I think that Energizers Medium Support opaque hosiery has much stronger compression, which should do the trick. After I am finished with acting today [Monday], I will probably try the opaque support hosiery.

The only thing is that my own opaque support hosiery is not good for the ankle now, since it had holes in the feet, and since I converted it to footless support hosiery. I have a bunch still in inventory, and I can take a pair of those. It will be nice to have full length medium support opaque hosiery again.

Another option is to use the firm support hosiery that I sampled. Since it is all ready open, I will probably try that before opening a new pair of medium support opaques.

Have you tried medium support hosiery to remove ankle swelling? If so, then what brand and style? Did it work? What was the cause of the swelling? What about firm support hosiery? Please let me know in the comments below.

Frangi Pangi: Thoughts About Men In Hosiery

I found Jocelyn Maminta interesting in many ways. During our initial phone conversation, she was the first to bring up men in hosiery. So, you can imagine how curious I was about her thoughts on men in hosiery. Read the remainder of the blog post to see what I discovered. Be sure to check out the other interview questions, by clicking interviews, which can also be found in the right column, under Popular Topics.

Black Women Pantyhose Site

A PRWeb article has alerted me about, which shows photos of black models wearing pantyhose of various shades. It turns out that this is a fetish site, but the good thing is that they do make an effort to keep the privates covered with something. There are many samples for non-members. There is even a HD sample. I like the HD sample, because there is a nice hosiery wrinkle on her foot.

One thing that I like is the fact that you can see blemishes in their skin and the hosiery. The photographer does not seem to hide any bulges or blemishes. That is a hallmark of authenticity. I think that the hosiery companies need to learn from them.

Finished Counting 2 Loads Of Inventory

Last night, I finished counting a new shipment of hosiery, which arrived from Doris Hosiery Mills, and the load of hosiery to be liquidated. It was a tough job, and I am so glad that it is over. I felt like it cost me a lot of time and energy, even though it did not feel very profitable. The unfortunate thing is that it is a necessary task, because I cannot sell bad quality hosiery, and I also need to know exactly how many items there are.

A big struggle was not wanting to keep 1 of everything. Seeing all the nice colours really made it so enticing. Imagine owning your own hosiery store. Even if you tried on 1 of everything, would you still want to try on more of them anyways? Maybe. I know that I would. It took incredible restraint.

Saw A Woman Wearing Seemly Wearing Hint-O-Black Sheers

Around here, a lot of women wear sheer hosiery, but most do not. Of all that do, many black or skin colour. The other day, I saw a woman wear sheers that appeared to be hint-o-black, which is a very dark muddy brown. I thought that it was so nice. Maybe exquisite was the word.

Although any sighting is refreshing, this was a real treat.

Used Hosiery: Convert Hosiery Into Bikini

This following video is for converting leggings into a bikini, but we can still use the techniques for cutting and shaping the hosiery into a bikini. The only difference is that hosiery is sheer. To make it more opaque, I think that we would need to just use more layers of hosiery.

Zooey Deschanel Wears Black Hosiery In Spring

Fortunately, she is not afraid of wearing black sheer hosiery in spring.

I love light spring colours, and light clothes, but not if it means not wearing any sheers. Do any of you appreciate the bare leg look in spring??

I think Zooey Deschanel and Kate Middleton are great examples for the rest of us. The interesting thing is that they do not seem to be trying to be examples. In fact, I think that that is what makes them great examples. If they tried, and if the hosiery companies paid them to be examples, then do you think that people would trust them?

Just Organized Competitors Hosiery

I am helping my competitor to liquidate her hosiery, and the first thing that I did was organize them according to styles. That seems so simple, and it is, but it took so long, and my back is killing me. The next step is to organize each style according to colour and size, so that we could post them on the sites.

Some of the styles turned out to be okay, because I am selling them all ready. That means that I will be able to get rid of them over time. The other styles will be harder to sell.

Emma Watson Wears Black Sheers

Her legs look so nice.

The article says that she is wearing stockings, but I have a feeling that it might actually be full length hosiery. There seems to be no evidence of any specific kind of hosiery.

There is a nice colour cover photo with lace at the top of her hosiery. Let me know if you cannot find it.

I'll Take 1 Of Everything!!

Have you ever saw a range of products and just wished that you could get 1 of everything? Please let me know, in the comments below. Lately, I have been craving grey footless hosiery.

The other day, I went into that store, and saw [style #7396] Silks Ultimate Leggings in grey. I do not normally wear grey these days, but I did for a while, and I am a firm believer in variety, and I would love to start wearing grey again. Also, I am a firm believer in wearing footless hosiery with boots. Also, having a lighter colour is good for spring and summer.

What about you? Do you want to wear grey footless opaques? Do you think that I should wear grey footless opaques this year? Please let me know the answers to all these questions in the comments below! :^)

Sent 2 Shipments Today

I was pleased to send 2 shipments for the first time. I sent hosiery to Manitoba, Canada, and to New South Wales, Australia. It means a lot to me, because it feels like I am getting busier.

I was tempted to bring out my delivery bag. It is a free bag that I got from relatives, and I set it aside just for delivering hosiery. I thought that bringing that along would be more trouble than it was worth. It was just as well that I carried the shipments with my hands. They were good for keeping the sun off of my face.

I had to deal with a couple of orders before, if I recall correctly, but 1 of them was a local delivery, and there was not a sense of urgency. She was a friend, who did not mind waiting for when I made a trip out to Vancouver.

Phantom Outlet Store Sells Phantom Hosiery

Found Another Seller Of Phantom Silks

A week and a half ago, I went into a store that I found to count up the quantities of Silks hosiery that they have. I am really happy for fans of Phantom Silks, because they now have a new stash of hosiery.

Unfortunately for the seller, she gets so little customer interest in hosiery, that people are not looking at the products. They have been there since well before 2011. I am confident that she bought them before the buyout.

Fortunately for the fanatic enthusiasts, that source of hosiery will almost definitely be there for years to come.

To help her get rid of it, I spent time organizing the racks, so that the hosiery would be easy to find. It was all volunteer work, but it is important to me that she be able to get rid of it. She was happy with my work, so she gave me a package of coffee flavoured candies.

I wore my shorts and opaque footless hosiery during my visit.

Selling Off Most Of Hosiery

Last week, I managed to get in touch with a customer, who has been trying to reach me for months. I always replied to the emails, but my messages have not been getting through. I finally dialed the long distance number, and we managed to work out a deal.

Most of the work involved counting up stock, and checking for sizes. In other words, I checked up on everything, and provided product knowledge.

My loyal readers, with good memories, will remember that sent me hosiery to sell. I never had to pay for it up front, so it was good deal for me. I felt bad for quite some time, because I did not expect to be able to sell it. Now that this customer is buying most of it, I feel like I have achieved a huge goal. The truth is that God did the work in this instance.

The customer was attracted to the mentioning of the hosiery being similar to Wolford or better in quality. The customer ordered dozens of pairs of hosiery, in all sizes that could fit, and all colours that she typically wears.

1 interesting fact that will interest you: the husband did the talking and buying for the wife. The wife was happy to trust him. I thought that that was cool.

Since does not seem to be making any hosiery in the near future, this hosiery is of limited quantity, which is unfortunate. Fortunately, there are a few smaller sizes left.

The part that means the most to me is the money that I will be able to send to, which will support a small business and local manufacturing. Unfortunately, I do not know how to send the money to him. I might just mail a cheque, or just place an order on the web site. The funny thing is that I expect neither of these methods to work, because he might not see it.

If you have any suggestions on how to get in touch with, then please let me know.

Thank you for reading! Still In Business???

I have been trying to contact lately, but they have not replied to me. Somebody in the business must certainly use the internet, so I have difficulty believing that they are unable to reply to me. I even phoned them, and the number is no longer in service. is a small Canadian hosiery manufacturer, which I would like to do business with.

I searched around on the web, and found that they have a different address than the address they used to ship to me.

Have any of you heard from them? Are any of you in contact with them?

Touched A Gal's Hosiery Clad Leg

Last week, I went to a film set. I noticed that a couple of the gals were asked to put on a dress. They ended up wearing nude sheer hosiery for whatever reason. It brought a nice smile to my face. I did not have my contact lenses, but I still saw the nice even texture of the fabric, and even a bit of a sheen.

I was fortunate enough to be paired up with gal #2 in a scene, so there was an opportunity to spend time with her and chat. Generally speaking, though, we are not supposed to chat in between takes, but we did anyways.

At the beginning of the filming of the scene, the first assistant director asked us to take off our shoes and walk, because the film crew did not want anybody making any noises. I was sad for me, because I hate walking outside of my home without shoes. I even hate walking in my home without slippers. I hesitated and explained my discomfort, and he offered to give me a pair of socks in exchange for my compliance. I agreed. I still did not want to, but I did not want to put up a fuss. I was pretty happy, though, about her walking in pantyhosed feet. I was very happy, actually. :^)

As you can imagine, when we first took our shoes off, I looked down at her feet. They were nice. I will let you imagine how they looked.

I am sure that you will not be too surprised to know that I asked her what brand and style she was wearing. She did not know, because she memorized where she got it from, without remembering the name or style. She explained that every time she went on a trip to Hong Kong, she would buy some to last her for a while, and just never bothered to memorize the name.

I am not surprised, because the Chinese packaging that I see in Canada does not seem to emphasize the name brand much. However, I do not speak Chinese, so I cannot say for sure. Also, when I went to work in China, the street vendors sold hosiery without a tag or branded packaging. They just hung the hosiery from a rod that was like a coat rack. I think that the hosiery came only in 1 size.

She asked me why I wanted to know.

I explained that I sold it and that I liked it. They were good excuses, because they were true, and because she believed them.

Afterwards, I instinctively reached out to touch her leg, but I pulled back and looked at her.

She gestured towards her leg.

I took that as an offer. The hosiery felt quite nice. Honestly, I had no idea of what Chinese hosiery would feel like. I had the impression that the quality was not as good as ours.

You know that hosiery that you enjoy looking at in the Canadian department stores? I would say that her hosiery actually felt comparable to mid-range department store brand hosiery.

I thought that that would be all of my hosiery fun for the day, but that was not all! Later on, we had to duck down, to get out of the camera's view and to avoid blocking the light. This was an opportunity for her to get off her feet and on to her lower legs. Her dress came down to about mid thigh, when she stood up, so you can imagine how it looked, when got onto her lower legs and leaned forward. It came up so much, that I could see the hosiery run guard at the top of the leg, and at the bottom of the panty. Even with my blurry eyes, due to not wearing glasses or contacts, it was still a sight to behold.

Afterwards, we got changed. I asked her about how her hosiery was doing. After all, I figured that she probably wore them out on the rough floor. She held them up for me, and said, "See? They're fine.". I wonder if I kept a straight face.

Seeing her undamaged hosiery was useful, though. I think that the trick to protecting hosiery on rough surfaces when walking is to just pick up the feet when walking.

That was pretty much the end of it for her, however, there was a bit more later on, with somebody else. I was partnered up with another gal. She looked beautiful, and we seemed to like each other. Unfortunately, she wore pants. I know. It is sad, isn't it? :^D I wanted to be a good influence on her, so when I got the chance, I asked who she thought was the best dressed. I pointed to the other performers outside.

She chose gal #3, who wore black footless opaques! When I asked her why, she never mentioned the hosiery, but I agreed that that gal did seem to look the best. I was grateful, because it meant that I would not have to work as hard to convince my new friend that the footless hosiery was important to a good outfit. I briefly mentioned the hosiery to my friend, and we changed the subject. I hope that I left a lasting impression.

I think that I should practise finding opportunities to discuss with them guys wearing hosiery. Now that I think about it, I could have just asked what they thought about guys wearing, as a change of topic.

So, in summary, I saw a gal's pantyhosed feet, I touched her leg, I saw her run guard, and I tried to convince somebody that hosiery looks nice. Unfortunately, I never got to share with any of them, that I wore, but it was still a wonderful day!

Martha Lane Fox In Grey Opaque Hosiery

She ought to be known as UK's Digit Champion. However, we might rather know her as woman in grey opaques and with a walking stick.

I do not mean to belittle her intellectual achievements, but she looks very beautiful. I find it interesting that the hosiery does not seem to just hide any possible blemishes, but they seem to go well with her walking stick. If you were to search for images and videos of her, then you'll find that she has different styled walking sticks. They are not very noticably different, but you could see some patterned sticks. I wonder if it is wise for her to match her hosiery to her walking stick. What do you think about that?

Getting back on track, though, I think that hosiery does an excellent job of covering the blemishes after an operation [even though Martha might not need it].

What do you think of her sense of style? Did she choose the right colours? Do you like her outfit?

Shorts Worn With Hosiery Seems To Be Coming Back

It seems that the ladies are at it again: hosiery worn with shorts. Take note that not all of them are wearing just opaques or just sheers. 1 of them is wearing sheers.

I noticed an interesting theme. None of them had high cut boots. Nothing went far past the ankles, and the majority of them were below. I think that it gives the women a more polished look. Contrast those shoes and low cut boots with the boots in the photo below.

I like Ugg boots, but they can appear clunky, if they are not part of a heavy winter outfit.

Do you agree?

I like all of the looks almost equally, but I think that Zoey Deschanel looks the prettiest.

It is not just for winter and cold months, though. You can do this for warmer months with light colours, as seen below, from this article.

What do you think? Comment below, and vote at the bottom of the first article.

Sheers And Back Seams As Pants

Kate Moss has no shame. She boldly shows her stuff, with just enough to cover any private parts.

Kate Moss wearing sheer hosiery as pants?

See the article for a glimpse of a bit of her butt cheek.

I had thought that sheers as pants, and opaques as pants, had died a horrible death, and that leggings as pants were on the way out as well, but maybe she can revive it. Also, think about what Jessica Alba wore: that was pretty short. Is Kate Moss doing a good job of it? Does she offer a good example of what to wear?

A Helpful Spammer?

I got a message through the contact page of my e-commerce site. An agency [Fashion-Team] wants to offer its manufacturing services to me. I did not look into the details very much, but they seem European. They do not seem to specialize in hosiery, but they do seem to have a bit of experience in it.

So far, they seem very straight forward in their approach, and I like that. I am waiting for a quote to see how much they can do for a specific amount of money.

So, it seems that my dream of making long hosiery is still alive!

Mantyhose Is Progressing In New York

It is comforting to know that more people are trying mantyhose, and that they are enjoying it.

I think that this particular news item is noteworthy, because this guy, who tried it, is a model. He is willing to wear it in New York, and his style is quite nice. He shows an entire outfit in this article's video.

I think that some people have more influence than others on our culture's sense of fashion. I think that this guy is 1 of them. I am so glad that they found somebody to try it on.

Please share the story!

Jessica Alba Shows Guys How To Put Some Effort Into It

Her beautiful hosiery covered legs remind me of dumplings. Nom! Nom! Nom! Yum, yum! They look so healthy.

She looked good early in the day, when she watched a fashion show. On the outside, she only wore a short top, hosiery, and highheels. Her outfit clearly demonstrates how we can get away with so much, even with only a few items.

Jessica Alba in a nice outfit

See the article for more photos.

For more convincing proof, look at the article's second photo. Who would you rather be? Both have nice hair, nice makeup, a nice top, and nice shoes. To me, there seems to be a world of a difference. I would rather look like Jessica Alba. Guys, we would insist that women put on nice hosiery, right?

I definitely think so, but what should us guys wear? The solution seems obvious. We would need to wear shorts, and nice hosiery as well. Robert Safko, from, says that women buy expensive products, so maybe men should, too. You would not appreciate women buying $1 hosiery, would you? If we want them to invest in quality hosiery, then maybe we should too. He also says that if guys expect women to wear them often, then we should too. In fact, maybe men should lead the way.

Some of you might hesitate, because you do not have nice outfits, and because women have more flexibility. That is all true. I do not have many nice outfits, either. However, that should not stop us.

To see how flexible hosiery and shoes can be, scroll down to the article's last 3 photos. Jessica Alba has the same shoes and hosiery. Beautiful, right? So, do not compare your outfits to the women's outfits. We can make do with what we have.

Perhaps, you think that women should lead the way in wearing hosiery? Please explain in the comments below. Perhaps you think that I am wrong. Maybe men should not dress up as much as women. What do you think?

I am so excited. :^) I cannot wait until I get my first phone call.

Just Got Business Phone Number

This is exciting. My dad had a VOIP phone number that he was not using, so he let me take it for my business.

Just before the weekend, somebody phoned my home line to order hosiery. At first, she got the answering machine, and she did not believe that she had the correct phone number, since she expected a business phone line. This said to me, that I really need to get a business line.

When I recalled that my dad refused to use what is now my business line, I got permission to use it.

I cannot wait to say for the first time, Hosiery Advocate's Boutique. How may I help you?. :^D

The next step is to check if there are any long distance fees. I figure that it should not cost anything, since it is the Internet, but I bet the companies want to make money anyways.

Exec Who Launched L'eggs Died

On Feb. 26, 2013, Robert E. Elberson died in his home at age 84. I feel a sense of loss. See the Bloomberg news article for more details.

1 interesting lesson that we can learn from this man is that even though hosiery is thought of as a female garment, men can make a huge impact. Let us aspire to be like him, okay?

Unusual Hosiery Quote Of The Day

I was suprised to read this, I'm struggling to see the relevance but if you insist: Your average politician prefers wearing 40 denier stockings under their trousers. Garters are optional., in a discussion about politics and bicycling. That site is for nerds and geeks, and I assume that most do not know what denier is.

Do you think that the user thinks that snobs wear 40 denier stockings??

Went Outside In Mostly Opaque Support Hosiery

Today, I spent time cleaning up around the home, and it involved taking things outside into a storage room. I appreciated the opportunity to let the warm sun shine on my legs. It was a refreshing change of pace.

New Business Opportunities

Yesterday, I went to Langley to meet up with Maureen from Lovely Legs And Intimates, so that I could purchase Silks lacetop stockings [by Phantom]. We ran late and chatted a while. It kind of bugged me, because I wanted to be able to do everything on 1 bus ticket.

However, it was good to chat with her, and hear how she was doing. She was grateful for the work that I am doing, since I am liquidating stock for her.

I also discovered that the nearby mall, Willowbrook Shopping Centre, had almost everything that I needed. I found out that there is an Orange Julius there, and a couple of department stores, where I have gift certificates. Also, nearby is a grocery store that is associated with my bank, so I am able to make use of a bank machine there. I also found a street letter box, nearby, so everything is within walking distance of a bus route that connects to my home.

The street letter box is important, because I might need to send out a shipment. I could buy products from somewhere in the area, or from somebody, who I might meet there, and then just send everything off.

In short, this gives me good access to all I need to meet people and to run my business, and to just go to some place kind of nice.

Went Out Wearing Black Mostly Opaques Today

It was good change of pace, sicne I normally wear completely opaque footless hosiery.

I wore army boots, so nobody could tell that I was wearing footed hosiery, but the mostly opaque fabric still caught a bit of attention. I noticed people passing by me, looking at my legs. 1 woman told her friend, and her 2 friends looked back. At least, I think that they were looking at me.

I think that what made it more noticable was the rainy weather. Not many guys are going to wear shorts in rainy weather, right? Therefore, when they see me wearing shorts, they will also notice that I am wearing hosiery.

I wore mostly opaques, because I had epilated my legs a couple of days ago, this pair was almost ready to be washed. I epilated, because I expected to model the Fangi Pangi hosiery that arrived earlier in the week.

I really missed wearing sheer hosiery and mostly opaque hosiery. I do not feel like I am really advocating hosiery, unless it is sheer or mostly opaque. What about you guys?

Andreas Lucius Loh: Thoughts About Fashion

This week's portion of the interview is much longer than the other portions. I felt that he knew more about fashion than most, or at least had more opinions on it, so I felt free to ask him more. If you have opinions, then please feel free to comment below. For those of you just joining us, read the other interview questions by clicking on a link below.

Read the rest of my post for the great answers.

During Winter, Match Black Opaque Hosiery With Bright Summer Clothing

This video does a great job of demonstrating how black opaques can be used with brighter colours in winter. It is mostly for women, but the same principles apply to men.

We Need A Hosiery Meme


I have been looking into some of the best marketing campaigns, and I can see that we have been very weak about coming up with techniques for spreading the word about hosiery. None of our efforts scream, "CHECK THIS OUT!!!". They all seem to say, "Wear hosiery, okay?". That seems boring.

What do you think we need? A lot of great memes have started from Reddit. People upload photos, and are encouraged to make jokes. Maybe we can upload a photo of guy wearing hosiery, to see what they say. Share some of your ideas below.

Making Progress With Hosiery Gift Site

Remember me trying to come up with a way to send you free hosiery? I am pleased to say that I am making great progress. I managed to get a dummy page up, with a fake name, fake photo, and fake products. This means that the site will work just fine with real people, real photos, and real products.

It took me a while to test out different sites to see what they are capable of. I wanted to try the services of the e-commerce site that I normally use, but I want to add lots of people to model the hosiery, and this would mean that I would need to pay for that, or that I would need to do things in an user unfriendly way.

If this is your first time reading about this, then let me tell you that if you are willing to model free hosiery for your fans, then comment below. I am currently looking for volunteer models.

The site is coming along. Thank you for reading!

What Would You Do To Earn A Pair Of Hosiery?

I plan to start a loyalty/rewards program, so that people can earn a pair of hosiery from my store. My biggest problem is finding out what people can offer me to earn a pair.

The best thing to reward is probably word of mouth, but I am not confident that my products are hot enough for people to want to buy them after hearing about it via word of mouth.

Also, I would like to reward behaviour that is more interesting, or products that I can use. This way, I can exchange my products for other things.

Are there any things that you wish that you could do to earn points for something? Make me an offer!

LIfe In The Boutique: A Returning Customer

I am pleased that a customer came back for more.

This time, she chose a different colour. This particular colour-size combination was in stock, and it was not popular, so I feel that she was doing me a favour.

I felt a bit of relief, when I discovered that I could give her a reduced shipping rate.

Hosiery In Foreign Film

I found a movie trailer for a foreign film. I felt that the hosiery at the end was quite nice. The rest of my post has the embedded video.

I Met A Is She Wearing Pantyhose Gal

When I arrived on set on Thursday, I needed to wait to line up. One of the gals that I showed you in Is She Wearing Pantyhose was there. I honestly felt like I was in a dream. It was as if I met a movie star.

I could not help myself. I asked her if she was such-n-such. It was an embarrassing moment, because I suddenly realized that I had to explain how I would know her. It was cool, in that I was able to explain without mentioning hosiery. I just mentioned that I saw her when I went to the site that we both use, and that I blogged about her clothing.

I believe that I should have kept it general and vague, so that I would not creep her out. I felt bad about hiding information, but I think that she would not be ready to hear about it just yet.

I can tell you that she is just as beautiful as her photo. She is shorter, and appears to be younger. Her newer photos look younger than what I originally showed you, and she appears that way in real life.

A-a-a-ah. I guess dreams do come true.

Thank you for reading!

Have A New Customer

Before I showed up on set on Thursday, I visited a particular club, which had an interest in buying hosiery. The owner is happy to buy my products. I will give the club a discount, so that it can still sell them at the full retail price and make a profit.

I found the club, a while ago, when I did a web search for hosiery and Vancouver. It turns out a fetish club mentioned a special men in pantyhose event.

It turns out that they all ready have a good supply of cheap pantyhose, and it has not been selling well, so the owner is hesitant to buy more. The owner wants to buy lace stockings, so I will supply that.

The good thing about this customer is that the business relationship is very informal. I can deliver stuff at a time that is convenient for me. This allows me to schedule more than 1 errand in the same transit trip. It also allows me to use that hosiery to meet the minimum order requirements of the manufacturer.

By the way, the customer is also looking for false eye lashes. If you or anybody that you care about would like to sell them, then let me know.

Tried To Wear Hosiery For A Filming

On Thursday, I had to appear on set, and the scene was a warm Hong Kong scene, so I wore footless opaques with my black shorts. I was not allowed to wear it, but at least I got to show the world what guys in hosiery and shorts looked like.

A couple of times, people asked me if I was a cyclist for the film, and I said that I was not. It turns out that I was. What a shame! I might have been able to wear it, after all. Maybe next time.

Honestly, though, it would not have made a difference for the film, because nobody would have seen it, since it was so crowded.

I Saw A Man In Shorts And Footed Hosiery

Yesterday, I went to Costco, and saw a guy wear basketball shorts, and what appeared to be athletic tights. I did not think much of it, at first. Then I took a closer look at the leg. It turned out that there were seams on both sides of each leg. Also, the hosiery was footed! I was very surprised. I never thought to point it out to the people that I was with. There were no white socks or anything.

After seeing no socks, I thought that he might have pulled the cuff of footless hosiery down past his heel, but I am sceptical about that. After all, guys typically do not do that, right?

Maybe calling it hosiery would be premature, but it does seem to be the case.

Do you guys think that any snug garment with feet should be considered hosiery?

Roxanne Pallet In White Mostly Opaques Acts In Rocky Horror

Hello, fellow advocates! I think that there is something special about white mostly opaque hosiery. Do you? To me, it conveys a certain innocence and purity [I would love to hear what fashion experts have to say about this]. That is why I love this photo of her.

Fern Britton In Opaques And A Short Skirt

This is a slow news day. Look at Fern Britton.

Fern Britton In Opaques And A Short Skirt

If you like what you see, then read the article for more photos. I am amazed at how a short skirt can look good on older women. I think that it is because of her figure. The opaque hosiery also adds modesty to the outfit, which probably helps.

I Sell Hosiery [Part 3]: I Want To Sell NHL Colours

Another idea that I had was to sell hosiery that could branded with the NHL logo or other pro sports organizations. It would take a huge undertaking to get to that point. In the mean time, I will have to find ways to encourage people to buy other brands.

I think that we will have to show various outfits that incorporate opaque colourful hosiery. I think that wearing colourful outfits will be the only way that people will freely wear for the first time without much thought opaque hosiery. As it is, they already wear playful colourful outfits to sporting events.

Do do wear colourful outfits to sporting events?

My Find Me Page

The other day, I mentioned that most of my hosiery sales are going to come from the sales of Silks hosiery at Hosiery Advocate's Boutique. I forgot to mention that you should not need to bookmark it. It is recorded on the Find Me which is listed at the top.

I Sell Hosiery [Part 2]: Super Tall Support Hosiery Project

I want to create super long hosiery for you, even though I will not be able to wear it. Therefore, I started a project at, called Super Tall Support Hosiery. You can read about the technical details at that page. That specific project is long dead, but I am still actively using it to keep in touch with you all. The best way to keep in touch is by paying attention to the blog of that project page. To protect your privacy, I recommend using the project's news feed.

You can also subscribe to the blog that you are reading now.

It would be helpful to give me your contact information.

You can go to Hosiery Advocate's Boutique's contact page, and leave a message there.

You could also leave your contact info in the comments below. If you actually want to say something below, then comment first, and then leave your contact info in a separate comment, so that I can delete it after I get a copy. I want to do that, because I want to protect your privacy. Keeping your contact info in a separate comment allows me to delete it, without deleting what you want to say.

New Lycra Used With Plus Size Tights

Even the tabloids are reporting about it. This is special, because it uses a new Lycra. I just skimmed through the article, so I do not quite understand what it does, but the hosiery seems to have a better layer between the legs to prevent chafing.

Bear in mind, though, that the photos in the tabloid article probably photo edited the model's head to be smaller, so that she looks to be plus size, when she really probably is not plus size. This means that it might not fit you well.

If you like what you see, then get more info at MyTights's Cette page.

On an interesting note, I noticed that Cette used what appeared to be a baggy top for 1 of the photos. I felt that they could have chose something more flattering, such as this.

Zooey Deschanel's Black Opaques With Teal Dress

Is she hot or not? E! Online says that she doesn't look good, but I think that Zooey Deschanel looks fine in the photo. I do not think that people are going to ignore her dress, just because of her hosiery.

Do the black opaques really take our attention away from the dress? If so, then what kind of hosiery would you have advised her to wear? Should women be encouraged to dress like her?

I would love to read your comments below.

Andreas Lucius Loh: About Singapore The Homeland

I am so glad to present to you the next portion of the interview.

We could always check Wikipedia for information about Singapore, but it is nice to read about it from people that we trust. After all, Wikipedia will not tell us about hosiery in Singapore, right? Today, we will see what Andreas has to say about it.

I Sell Hosiery [Part 1]: Hosiery Advocate's Boutique

Most of my hosiery sales are going to come from the sales of Silks hosiery at Hosiery Advocate's Boutique. If you have not seen my site yet, then please visit it before reading further. You should not need to bookmark it. It is recorded on the Find Me which is listed at the top.

What do you think might be the hottest selling item? The most popular products by far, are waistband-free opaques, and waistband-free sheers. The panty portion is adjustable, in that you can stretch it, and the grip on the inside will stay up. An interesting aspect is that the legs are almost the same length, so you can buy a size 1, if you want a shorter panty, or a size 3, if you want a larger panty. Not only is it the most popular, it is the easiest to sell, because the opaques are easy to open up and check for problems.

Do you think that this business, and the current assortment of products, will ever be enough to support me financially? I love running the business, because I can learn how to run a business, and practise running it. Those are the reasons that I run this business. So, no, I do not make enough from the current setup to support myself. I also appreciate the opportunity to help women find a product that they have been searching for for quite some time.

A frequent comment that I get is that they have been searching for the waistband-free opaques, and I am the only store that sells them.

If you hate the idea of a binding waistband, then I encourage you to try the waistband-free opaques.

Also, I would like to mention that there are leggings on sale. If you buy in the next little while, then you can save $5 per pair. They are smooth to waist, and can be worn around the home.
