I, too, hate nylons and will only wear them if I absolutely have to(funerals, weddings top the list!). Great "ranting" topic. LOVE the group The Nylons...have since the mid-80's. They are awesome!!! Concert was petty good too!! Hope you're having a good bare-legged weekend!! (now to go and check out that Sally Hansen stuff you mentioned!!)

I have even given up wearing them to funerals. Black pants and a white blouse are my uniform for that. And if my daughter decides to get married on a tropical beach somewhere, I'm not wearing them to her wedding either!

Sadly, even if I grew 3 inches taller I would still be Queen.

Who knew there was an airbrush product for the legs? Is there one for the ass? I'd like a case please.

I have half a drawer full of pantyhose. I haven't worn them in years. I'm going to go throw them away right now!

I have got to try that Airbrush product. I depend on nylons for warmth here in Minnesota. That extra layer is very beneficial when it's dozens of degrees below zero!


I hate wearing nylons. At my first job out of college I had to wear them everyday, then each job after that got progressivly more casual. Now I'm home. And unless I'm going to a wedding or a funeral, I don't wear them.


There is just something about the west...West Coast is ever so much more casual than the East Coast...West Texas churches had 80yo ladies wearing sundresses & sandals w/o pantyhose...oh, that was the life!
I wore an old pair of pantyhose under some very slinky trousers yesterday. Unfortunately, those nylons were NOT in the support hose catagory, and by the time I walked across the parking lot, the waistline of my pantyhose had inched below my rumpus. Go ahead and laugh, but let's see you try to walk and look good in slinky trousers when your pantyhose is trying to pull those trousers down to your ankles!

Okay - I hate nylons and can't imagine ever wearing them again, period. At least here in Minnesota we can wear something called tights, fall, winter and sometimes spring -- cotton, nifty things that don't rip and can be all natural fiber! Hooray! This post makes me want to throw out any nylons that may be creeping in a drawer somewhere!!!


I haven't worn nylons in 20 years. They are a blight on women's fashion and so uncomfortable. But here in he chilly northeast, tights have to be an option in the winter. Or sweats =)


Having been raised a good Southern Lady, I used to wear pantyhose ALL the time - even under pants.
Fortunately, I got over it.
I live in my black tights in the winter time, but if I ever need to wear hose for any reason, I have to dig through my sock drawer for that ziploc bag in the back that contains the three pair that I now own (I still have to have a backup pair or two on hand - old habits die hard!)
