For Sale: Silks Desire Legging With Lace Trim [Style #19906]

[This style is for sale at my Phantom Hosiery web site.]

This garment is designed to have lace go from the middle of the lower leg to the ankle, for a nice feminine touch. Most customers, if not all, will like the non-lace portions, because they feel very smooth to the touch.

The manufacturer did say, "leggings", on the package, but customers should be aware that the garment is best thought of as footless hosiery. This means that it is even more important to cover the hip area with a long shirt or a skirt or a pair of shorts. Sometimes, footless hosiery has a gusset or run guard, whereas genuine leggings tend to have fewer visible features. On a more positive note, this garment has no inseam running down the legs, which make them nicer to look at.

Although the size chart below does mention 4′10″, shorter people should be aware that Silks Desire tends to be longer than might be assumed. Shorter customers would be wise to send a message, stating your inseam length, before purchasing, so that we can help you to figure out whether it will actually fit.

To figure out whether or not this style will fit you, measure your inseam, and then subtract the distance from your heel to where you want the hosiery to stop. For most people, the middle of the ankle is about 6″ above the bottom of the foot, so if you have a 34″ inseam, then you can wear unstretched hosiery that is 28″, give or take a few inches, since the garment stretches.

Silks Desire is a Canadian brand of hosiery that was inspired by European hosiery to bring a touch of class to our beloved country.

TIL: Pantyhose Was A Main Feature Of The Music Video "These Boots Are Made For Walkin" By Nancy Sinatra

I never imagined that this song would show so much leg, let alone hosiery clad leg. I wish that I could just run my hands over it all. I think that it is easy to miss that aspect of the video, because most of people my age or younger probably have not seen the video and because the video never mentions hosiery at all.


Gals, please dress like that for your guys.
