From time to time, I hear from ladies who say they love wearing pantyhose because of the extra attention they get from men when they do.
They say they love it when they catch men staring at their pantyhose-adorned legs out in public.
Others tell me that their boyfriends or husbands are so grateful whenever they wear pantyhose, that they wear them often to please their men.
More than anyone else, I hear from ladies who wear pantyhose at the office, sometimes because it’s required, or at least, expected.
In offices where the wearing of pantyhose is not required or particularly encouraged, it’s the ladies who are highly professional and classy who wear pantyhose of their own volition. Those are my heroes.
These ladies tell me that when they wear pantyhose, they get a great deal more attention from their male co-workers. But they say that this often causes a sense of uneasiness or even resentment among their fellow female employees.
They tell me that female co-workers will approach them and say something to the effect of “You know, you don’t have to wear pantyhose. You can go bare-legged.” Or, “How can you stand to wear pantyhose every day?” Or (and I love this one), “Pantyhose are so ‘out’ these days.”
Well, you know me – I think it’s downright pathetic when women blindly jump on the bandwagon in the name of what is thought to be “in or out of fashion,” especially if it gives them an excuse to be less feminine and not as desirable. And I think it’s just plain wrong when women use that same excuse to go against time-honored business acumen, and then try to encourage others to do so, as well.
Anyway, it got me thinking: How many of you have been approached by your co-workers about your wearing pantyhose at the office? Or how many of you have noticed that you get more attention from co-workers, those in your circle, or people on the street when you wear pantyhose?
Are you seen as a threat to your fellow females who don’t wear pantyhose and don’t want you to wear them either? (And is that to keep you from garnering the attention of men, or to help them somehow justify their own choice to not wear pantyhose?)
I’ll bet you have some stories to share. Please do.
