What’s your ‘feeling’ about pantyhose?
What is it that we love so much about pantyhose? Is it the look, the feel, or both?
Most people will admit that pantyhose look better than bare (bear) legs. I believe true lovers of pantyhose love their feel as much as their look.
What is silky?
Almost universally, people say pantyhose have a silky feel, probably because that’s the word they’ve always heard associated with pantyhose. But when they describe how pantyhose feel to the touch, most people use words such as “smooth,” “slick” or “slippery.”
I have always thought of pantyhose as “silky,” but to me, “silky” means extremely soft and delicate like the silk of a spider’s web.
Not exactly silky
When Lycra or Spandex are added to the nylon fabric, you get a “support” effect. That can be good for keeping pantyhose from sagging, or for therapeutic reasons. You get a smooth, slick or slippery feeling to the touch. If you run your hand over pantyhose like these, it will slide across effortlessly, as if on a glassy surface — like running your hand over a dolphin as it swims by.
I do understand how some people are attracted to pantyhose made with a bit of Lycra. They can look alluring and still feel petty nice. On the other hand (or legs), pantyhose made with a high degree of Spandex become real shiny (yeah, I know many people really like shiny) and elastic. To me, those pantyhose feel like a rubber band stretched to the max.
There’s a reason why women say they hate pantyhose and complain that they are too tight, too hot and just too uncomfortable.
Give and take
What I love is the extremely soft and truly silky texture you get from 100 percent nylon pantyhose. I love that when you touch that fabric, it touches you back. It gives. It moves. When you touch this fabric, you can really feel it, and you can make the person wearing it feel what you feel because the pantyhose will move on her legs, forcing her to “feel” the soft and silky fabric against her body.
And then, there’s the overall concept of 100 percent nylon pantyhose. There’s just something very sexy about the sense of vulnerability that truly silky and delicate pantyhose provide.
Most of the pantyhose you find on the market today are made with some degree of Lycra or Spandex. What bothers me is that women who think pantyhose are uncomfortable might never have tried anything but that kind of pantyhose. Perhaps they don’t realize they have a choice.
I can’t fathom how anyone would describe the feeling of 100 percent nylon pantyhose as “uncomfortable.” The way I see it, nothing could be more soft, silky and delicate than 100 percent nylon pantyhose. They make your legs look perfect, they feel so nice on, and they feel incredible to the touch.
Pantyhose can be practical: The right thing to wear at the office, proper for a formal or special occasion, or good for a massage. Or, pantyhose can be beautiful, decidely feminine and very sexy. You do have a choice.
