It's spring, and from my experience as a woman and as someone who writes about personal style, I know I can expect two things:. Millions of women, myself included, will ditch their winter tights in favor of bare legs with the skirts and dresses we wear to work and to social events and everywhere in between. And men — typically baby boomers and beyond — will call and e-mail me to register their disappointment.
They look complete," says Joe Ellison, who is 83, pantyhose experince in Southgate and became my first male pantyhose caller of the season when he phoned recently. Going without pantyhose "doesn't flatter their legs. You see indentations, scars, varicose veins. Ellison pantyhose experince a point; technically speaking, pantyhose can indeed improve the appearance of a woman's legs.
Still, no matter the cosmetic benefits of pantyhose, no matter how much men of a certain age long to see our legs encased in them — when it comes to this subject, I never hear from younger men, probably because they didn't grow up surrounded by women who wore them — pantyhose will never make a comeback. Pantyhose — invented by, you guessed it, a man — debuted in as a convenient and more comfortable alternative to stockings and garters.
Quickly, they became part of almost every woman's wardrobe. And yet, there's really nothing especially convenient or comfortable about pantyhose.
They tend to be ill-fitting, the waistband either riding pantyhose experince low on our hips or so high it's up to our armpits. Plus pantyhose are hot, especially in the sticky summer months. So I walked around with the first low rider pantyhose. Pozios says, "The final oomph to ditch them was seeing ladies at a wedding wearing evening sandals with the reinforced toes!

Some experts attribute that blip to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and fan of pantyhose, though recently actor Zooey Deschanel and singer Ariana Grande have been photographed wearing flesh-tone pantyhose, too.
I attribute it to a generation's relative unfamiliarity with pantyhose. To young women, pantyhose are a novelty, much the same way neon, leg warmers, acid wash jeans and other fashion tragedies from the s and s are novelties.
Young women find them intriguing because they were too young to wear them the first time around. It's also true that pantyhose can serve a cosmetic purpose. And, he says, "If you don't have great legs, pantyhose with maybe a little more opacity, can cover up a myriad of flaws. They can add color to your skin, provided it's sort of a realistic match.
If there's a little bit of sheen to them, they can enhance the structure of your legs.
But the bottom line is this: Between andaccording to Experian Marketing Services, the of women in the U. Women shun pantyhose — and will continue to do so — because our dislike for them outweighs our like for the men who wish we would wear them. We understand their interest in our appearance and, perhaps, their nostalgia for a different time. We know that if we aren't comfortable with what we pantyhose experince wearing, we will be ill at ease.
And if we are ill at ease, we will come across as lacking confidence. And I don't know many women who want to look or feel that way — at work, at social events and everywhere in between.
