Dogs In Pantyhose Is Something A Cat Would Never Stand For

When I think about what might happen if I tried to put a pair of support hose on Colonel Mustard, well, it would not end well. Apparently putting pantyhose on dogs is something of a mini-trend in China. Sorry dogs of China, but these photos manage to meet at the crossroads of hilarious and weird…

Not Your Mama’s Tights

If you're like me, you probably go through a pair or two of tights a week. Also, if you're like me, you probably grew up with the brand No Nonsense -- the line of mom-friendly hosiery and tights that practically everyone wore in the '80s. Well times have changed, and so has the company, which…

The Hose Knows

Recently, a big stink has been made about Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, bringing back nude hosiery. Now, you couldn't pay me a million spacebucks to wear nude pantyhose -- it freaks me out and reminds me of my 5th grade teacher Bobbie Jo Hibben who was obsessed with matching every aspect of her outfit. But…

Vogue Suggests Skipping The Pantyhose This Winter

Apparently, in October, Vogue ran a story that gave "practical advice on how to do as New Yorkers do -- and dare to bare your legs this winter ..." We're not sure which NYC women they were talking about exactly, because as far as we understand this is a practice for crazy people. Now the…

When Is It Cool (Enough) To Start Wearing Tights?

We have to take issue with September because, yes, it makes us all giddy for fall fashion, but it's often still too hot to wear most of it. Sweaters, fine—you can layer and take them on and off. But it's not like you can so easily slip your pantyhose off when you're walking down the…

Flashback: So 80’s Pantyhose

Fall is what I like to call pantyhose season. Nothing makes me feel more ladylike than silk, er synthetic, stockings. When it gets cold enough to wear them, they give me flawlessly smooth gams which in turn let's me wear even shorter skirts. You know the fabulous woman in this totally 80's No Nonsense commercial…

Genius Idea: Tights That Fix Themselves

A research team created an elastic substance that can mend itself -- simply push the torn material together and 15 minutes later, voilà! Besides applications in the fields of medicine and technology, tights that don't run is another extremely practical possibility. I would have found a pair very useful the other night. I was running…
