I wear them during the winter months wit a leotard. I wear tights often under regular work or street clothes. When it is really cold or snowing, I'll wear snow or ski pants with a thick flannel shirt. It feels great wearing tights.
That would depend upon how often ya wear them things....
Not sure how often you wear them but I wear tights/nylons as often as I can, sheer black nylons are this mornings pleasure.
No I do not sir tripod :)
