I'm AmazedI never realized there was such a following of all things pantyhose. Being a woman I naturally wear them most days, save for the ghastly days of summers past. Once the cool weather descends I wear them daily, and on the very cold days I wear tights. I'm a college prof. and while there isn't an actual dress code I tend to dress appropriately in a skirt and blouse or somedays pants. I just like looking proper and pantyhose naturally accent the look. I cannot stand sloppy looking women and the way a lot of them dress is appalling. And it carries over to the students, though I doubt I have influenced any lately.
But getting back to pantyhose, I just like the look they give my legs and the support they provide, not to mention the smidgen of warmth on chilly morns. The control tops help a bit as well, seeing no one wears a girdle anymore, not that I need one, mind you.
