Pretty legs at a great value!
on December 11, 2012
I am a 28 year old female. I learned years ago that the secret to great legs was a good pair of nylons in the right color. No more skinned up ankles from shoes, no more concealer on random leg bruises, and you can skip a day or two of shaving. I've tried "leg makeup," self tanners, spray-on nylons, and other things in an effort to get flawless legs, and all I got for it was stained hemlines and weird, orange sheets the next morning. And, NOTHING truly covers your feet and ankles in a natural way.
I buy these all the time. They last quite awhile and even hold up in the wash without putting them in a mesh bag (I'd still recommend the mesh bag for washing, sometimes I get lazy). They have a fantastic "stretch" quality- they are not control top, but more of a soft, stretchy hold. You can wear these under any dress and not get VPL (visible panty lines). For special occasions or very summery dresses, I wear a sheerer brand, but for 95% of the time, these work for me.
I literally get strangers telling me that I have great legs. My only secret to them is a healthy weight/diet and these nylons. They truly give you a perfect, groomed appearance without all the fuss. One more thing: Young ladies don't wear nylons these days and say it's because they are"outdated" and "too hot" in the spring and summer. As a lifetime floridian, I can tell you that these are not too hot to wear almost anywhere. They keep your thighs from becoming clammy and they even blend in with sandals. They don't look outdated; in fact, most people can't even tell you're wearing them unless they look very closely. The mesh panty part is breathable and doesn't dig in like underwear will. These give me the confidence to wear short dresses and not feel self conscious about my legs not being perfect.
