I have them in about a half dozen colors, in cotton and nylon, and in two or three lengths.


Obviously you know nothing about women, fashion or women's fashions ...

But he's here to learn. ;-)

I always hated having so many bands of elastic around my waist, so I was in the habit of wearing panty hose under dresses...and that was it.


One day, I wore a particular dress to work. It was flowy, and came down somewhere between my knees and ankles. A bunch of us were on our break, and I was standing kind of close to a revolving door.


First, a gust of wind blew the front of my dress up over my head. I quickly pushed it down with my hands, and in the process, bent forward a little bit. Then, a couple of guys (strangers) came through the revolving door, which created a bit of a wind gust, which pushed up the back of my dress.


I learned a valuable lesson that day. Wear SOMETHING under a dress you won't be embarrassed for everyone to see. LOL Believe me, everybody saw everything that day. I almost quit my job over it. LOL
I'm sorry for laughing, but I totally relate to this.
My husband and I went to see Cirque du Soleil one evening. Afterward, we went to a nice restaurant nearby. I was wearing a black dress with granny panties. The wind whipped my dress up over my head (and this was way back when I used to smoke) and I had a cigarette in one hand, trying to push my dress back down with the other. My dress got a huge hole burned in it AND I showed everyone in the restaurant my pure white undies. My husband asked, "Do you still want to go in here? Or would you rather eat elsewhere?" I said, "What's the big whoop?" We walked in and everyone was all polite until I said, "I am a performer at Cirque du Soleil, but I'm not good at anything else but showing my underpants." I saw several people who had also been at the show earlier and they laughed, at least. You'd think I'd learn my lesson and wear cute undies with dresses now, but I still wear my comfy granny pants.

We aren't part of a conservative religious sect, the women in my family aren't large, yet we wear slips. Perhaps women on the West Coast are less likely to wear them. I remember trying to buy one in a brick and mortar store when I lived in LA, and I had trouble finding one.

They are great for dealing with sheerness and static cling.
Yup! Some things do not have ideal fabric. But they are hard to find. I'd love to get some 50s starlet ones! Those are super cute. The ones now are so utilitarian.

Actually, they are. My girlfriend (20), as well as a lot of her friends, all wear pantyhose with their skirts and dresses. I see them at church every Sunday.

As to pantyhose - some really do NEED to wear them, one politico in particular. The "trend" of no pantyhose works great for those w/nice legs, in nice weather, etc. but I think it's silly in cases of those with unattractive legs, glowing white legs (that's me), winter cold!!
