Wearing HoseI am in my early 40's (exact date is a secret). I'm a bit out of synch with most women who go bare-legged all the time. I wear pantyhose under slacks or jeans always unless its too warm or I'm involved in something athletic or the like. I like the feel and I like the look and have discovered that most men do as well. I prefer all-sheer, tan, nude, off-black or taupe, depending on the outfit. I also have worn all-sheer pantyhose under short shorts because I like the look. I had always worn pantyhose. When I was 13 my mother got me my first pair along with a panty girdle. I had to wear a girdle over the pantyhose especially on dates. I think my mother thought it was some sort of protection against boys. She wanted me to wear nylon brief panties so I had to keep my bikinis hidden at first. In fact she used to check before I went out to make sure I had on a panty girdle.
On my 25th birthday one of my girlfriends gave me some very lovely lingerie...a lace push up bra, a thong and bikini panties and a garter belt. I put it away and forgot about it for a few months then one day came across the set in a drawer where I had left it. I decided to wear the outfit out on a date including the garter belt. I'd never worn one before, only pantyhose occasionaly with a panty-girdle. It was a new sensation and not at all unpleasant. In fact I found myself feeling very sexy. Up till then I always worn very nice lingerie but not really sexy stuff. This wasn't slutty sexy but high-class sexy. My boyfriend loved it. He told me that most guys really like girls in erotic lingerie and that garter belts are a major hit.
I started wearing them regularly to work, to church, out on dates and pretty much anytime I wore a dress or skirt. I still wear pantyhose from time to time depending on the outfit, like slit skirts. But I really like wearing garter belts and stockings. I even wear seamed stockingsquite a lot. I have several garter belts that are part of matching outfits. One of my girl friends teases me because she says I am more into underwear than outer wear. Fact is I like the feel and the look. I usually wear either thongs or bikini panties over the garter belts...or under pantyhose. Sometimes I wear a panty girdle with stockings or over pantyhose.
