They Last And Last

A month ago I wrote a story called "3 weeks and counting" elsewhere. I have been wearing pantyhose every day since, so now it's at least 7 weeks, (except on Sunday when I wear tights, they look like dress socks.) Well, the other six days of the week I have been wearing the same 4 pairs of Sheer Energy (we wash every other day) and out of that 4 I've only had to throw away 1 pair. That means that 3 pairs have lasted through at least 10 or more washings and are still going strong! I love Sheer Energy!!
UPDATE  I know you won't belive this but here it is, May 16, 2012, and I'm still only on my first set of replacement hose (second overall) since I started this back in January.  I'm wearing the same three pairs twice a week and wash them in the washer with the rest of the laundry.  They are starting to show the beginnings of a few small holes but are still holding up fairly well!!  Four months and I'm only on my fourth, fifth, and sixth pairs!

Fantastic! I love L'Eggs!!!!

I also love their durability. Nerd Alert: I actually keep a spreadsheet log of my pantyhose-wearing, just to keep track of which hosiery lasts and how many times I've worn each pair. I wear them everyday under my jeans at work, and depending on the season, will have them with shorts or under sweats. I also sleep in them most nights. As close to 24/7 as I can.

Anyway, I have gotten up to 30-some wearings from a single pair of Sheer Energy about a dozen times in the past 8-10 years. Most times I'll get 20+ wearings out of a pair. Sure, there are thin spots and a few snags when they get to that point, but they're still run-free, of maybe a small run that I've used nail polish on.

My record of consecutive days wearing pantyhose is 162 days...from mid-September thru mid-February. Would have been longer but a relative was hospitalized one night and didn't get to put any hose on that day. But that gives me incentive to try and break that record next year!

I don't mean to be a braggart but my personal record is about 17 and a half months, from mid December 2011 to May 29th 2013. The reason was that we went to Orlando on vacation and I'd be wearing shorts. At that time I had switched to No Nonsense because they didn't roll so much. They lasted quite a while, too!

Damn! Seventeen+ months? That is awesome, and gives me something to shoot for someday!

I love L'eggs Sheer Energy pantyhose they are the best. I wear them all the time.

I'm still amazed by L'eggs Sheer Energy. I just discarded my third pair two days ago since embarking on this daily wear adventure. (The only exception is on Sunday when I wear tights under my suit.)

Leggs aren't what they used to be so it's nice to hear you getting great life you of yours. I think i get 3-4 washings out of mine. But they aren't as silky as they used to be, hourly that will change though.<br />

I tend to wear European pantyhose these days; very silky and they last quite a while. The fit is amazing too.

I love your story and wish you were here
