Stockings – pantyhose, nylons, tights – call them what you will – are definitely back and sexy again like in the days of Rita Hayworth and Brigitte Bardot, and now to modern fashion style icons like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, and Victoria’s Secret models.
Why do women choose to wear stockings? Personally, I love wearing stockings (what’s not to love?). Leg Love is one of my faves especially the ones with suspenders OMG, they are way too sexy and yes, they drive men wild. They seriously provide a hint of support when you seduce your guy (and a lot of support once you reveal them when you get down to it! Haha!). But most importantly, stockings also add a little warmth, they even out your splotchy skin, and make you look more polished.
It’s easy to wear stockings. You can wear them under your office attire or just under normal clothes or whatever you love wearing. Like if you’re going out to dinner or something first though, definitely wear a slightly longer skirt or dress. For workplaces micronets might be more appropriate as they have the appearance of textured tights with a slight sheen from a distance. Darker or more muted colors would likely be suitable for a business setting as well. The Black Kenzo hosiery collection by Leg Love is the perfect touch to any outfit. Sexy lace edging adds glamour to these thigh-high sheers.
But the bottom-line here, why men love women in stockings, suspenders, garters.. etc? Relationship expert, Louise van der Velde, who likes to wear stockings, believes the appeal is like unwrapping a present.
“When you see the naked body, you’ve seen it all. It’s the same as getting a birthday present wrapped up in paper and ribbons. There’s as much excitement in unwrapping the gift as there is in the present itself.”
“Stockings are also sexy because they show a bit of flesh but not everything. I think it’s an association thing with men – they’re used to seeing stockings on sexy models in magazines so the stockings trigger a response in the male mind.”
But in my opinion, it’s the look and feel of the stocking that turn men on. The attraction is part visual, part tactile and part glamour.
