Do Women Still Wear Pantyhose?

by LAURA MCGUIRE

We get this question a lot. Many women want to know if it's on-trend to wear pantyhose. Maybe they saw a celebrity wear them or maybe they are going to a special event and want to make sure people won't think they're old-fashioned. Whatever the reason, we cover the answer to "Do Women Still Wear Pantyhose?" in this article.

We’ll get right to the answer: Yes!

Right now we live in a great time for clothing. It’s an era when being you is unique and celebrated. Love overall shorts but left your teens behind decades ago? Wear them! (P.S. They’re back in style for all ages and a pair of Hipstik’s new line of Footless Tights really gives them a now-vibe!) Love sandals with sheer hosiery? No problem! Mix patterns? Go for it! Who knew the day would come that white before Easter and after Labor Day is so chic? Remember the opinionated Stacy London and Clinton Kelly from What Not To Wear in the early 2000s? Clinton recently told Women’s Day readers (he’s a contributor there now) that rules have to be broken.

Barelegged Or Pantyhose?

WOW! Sheer leg In Hipstik Sheers vs. bare legged.

The most important point to any stitch of clothing or accessory is: Does it make you, as a wonderful woman in this world, feel good? Good means being comfortable and confident. Are you cozy to your core? Does it communicate your own personal style without saying any words? Does it bring joy?

So when it comes to pantyhose, it’s your choice to wear or not to wear. No rules. Women tell me they love the comfort of Hipstik Sheer Pantyhose because finally they actually want to wear pantyhose again - they’d shunned them in the past, not because of a worry for style rules, or even the hot-for-a-second idea of going bare-legged, but because hosiery of the past would squeeze, dig, itch, roll, sag, and make them suffer. Nobody wants to wear something that makes them want to scream to get out of it. That’s not fun, or fair.

They're Like Concealer For Your Legs

A pair of pantyhose serves multiple purposes and women who wear them love these attributes. They’re like concealer for your legs; not that you need to hide anything, but a sheer “coat” could be the ticket to boosting your confidence at your niece's wedding or a fancy, much-needed dinner date with your significant other. Need a bit of warmth when the sun goes down? They also provide a protective barrier so that dresses and skirts swing freely and don't stick. Let’s not forget,  pantyhose help eliminate chafing thighs – especially in the summertime AND Hipstik gives you that benefit without the shapewear suck and sweat! Some of our customers say pantyhose make shoes feel and fit better.

More than Just a Style Statement

Some jobs, like flight attendants or legal careers, still love their “uniform” which includes a pair of sleek pantyhose flaunting professionalism and fempower. Celebrities love nude and black pantyhose right now. Thanks, Princess Kate! Think your friends might call you old fashioned? They’re likely not to say anything at all except in their heads think “WOW!” because sheers are meant to be an outfit magic trick! You wonder why celebrities and their stylists and costumers love pantyhose? It’s more than just a style statement - it’s Hollywood magic they’ve been up to for years! We love comfortable yet stylish and totally useful pantyhose for all these reasons.

Don't Settle for Less Than Absolute Comfort

Pantyhose weren't left-back in yesteryear. Many women enjoy them today, and you don't have have to settle for the squeezed-in corseted feeling of the past. Hipstik provides comfortable pantyhose with a low-rise non-squeeze waistband for women of today. Browse comfortable nude pantyhose.
