Am I Losing The Plot?

10 posts in this topic

Just lately I seem to have gone off so called "fully fashioned stockings" at least affordable ones, not that I've bought any for anyone in years, but when I (rarely) see such worn they seem to me to look so false? at least one seam will be half way round the leg, the stockings/tights panel looks a thick denier and the usually point heels nothing like the real things and vanishing under the feet! (no disrespect to SHQ, I'm sure theirs do not fall into this category) So I am finding myself drawn to sightings  photos  of seam only stockings and tights (after years in the wilderness searching for any seams and heels ones for my late wife.} No doubt I'll be in the minority here, but I sometimes wonder why some ladies esp in the media have to advertise they are in sexy stockings? (and I bet alot aren't the latter as well!) I am beginning to think a plain seam only pair of stockings (or tights as they allow shorter tighter skirts for normal wear) can look just as attractive, and think the younger generation of girls (above 18 of course) would wear such more readily? Over to you! (puts tin hat on and sits in bunker waiting for the flak coming! lol)

I agree... My wife buys the new version (fake) ff stockings and tights.. They are very nice, but not the real thing.

I work with a lot of late teen/early,mid twenties and I must admit, the majority don't wear even tights let alone stockings when they go out. Unless it's fancy-dress.

I think the days of many women wearing tights and stockings are gone forever.

The place I work at has a very extensive range of tights/stockings and I am finding that the replenishment side is diminishing rapidly.

I do miss my teen years when all women wore skirts and stockings. My female family members would not have been seen dead in trousers.

I have my tin hat on now... ready for the people who say I am sexist.....

As I have said many times on this site Lady S only wears Gio FFN's all the time and would not think about wearing "fakes". I think myself very fortunate that she does!!! I also have my tin hat on.

Not sure what the best reply to this is but I'll take seams any day of the week, fake or real, over bare-legs or opaques.

And yes, whilst adornment in this day and age is very much in the minority, at least it's not extinct.

The good Ladies of this site and some of the Gurls do a fabulous job in keeping the fashion for which we have a passion alive and long may they do so.

What I can't understand, and currently my household is one of these, is winter/autumn = opaques, spring/summer = bare's. 

Where's the sense in that.

I love that you realise what a lucky guy you are Lord Seaton.

One day I will get to Northallerton and see the vision myself.

Maybe I should get out more! or at least to better places? Am pleased with the replies, hope for us still! Did notice the replies (so far) were all from men but guess that's to be expected? SeamsFFun has got it right re us men (some) should appreciate how lucky we are to have (or did have) wives who wear real ff's? I know I did after my wife (then my girlfriend) turned up on a date having come on the bus on her own in black fully fashioned  point heel nylons, this was in mid 60's pre mini era stretch seamfree stocking days, This was totally her own choice, I was 19, she was 20, we had never talked re such, or had even mentioned them, did after that first time though! I often wondered, and still do, whether she and I, were lacking self confidence? and she kind of wanted to prove she was a sexy girl? ( and afterwards me sort of proving I must be special to get a woman thus! ( I wasn't lol) any way it seemed to work as were married 46 year till her sudden death. She was over the years been asked by  other women where she got her "tights" and on explaining things to them the general opinion was "oh I couldn't be bothered with suspenders" etc or when some hadn't noticed they were seamed, got similar remarks re keeping them straight, In the last 6 years, I have had similar responses or out and out remarks from female friends re old fashioned etc when in a jokey way I had said I had liking for such hence my post re seam only ones, happy to chat in pc if any questions

Alas, the days of "adornment" are in decline... with the notable exception of the fashionistas on SHQ!  :58674be6ca98e_EmojiSmiley-15:

Yes I really do appreciate the way Lady S dresses...in Northallerton yesterday and a middle aged woman came up to Lady S and said "you look fantastic..it makes a very pleasant change to see a woman dressing as she should and so very elegant". We thanked her most profusely and actually she was quite well dressed in a skirt with tan hosiery. Yes you really must come and see us one day.

There are some of us who wear stockings on a daily basis, but for convenience  (and cost) wear cheaper store owned brands. My everyday stockings come from H&M or Kappahl. Not the best ever but cheap to replace when a run strikes. For work, I wear either stay ups (puts my own tin hat on) or stockings and a 6 strap belt.   For more glamourous occasions, then definitely ffn's or something finer and pricier.

I've never been into tights, not even for convenience. I've always found that I've been warm enough.

I enjoy the way they look on me, and the way they feel. I'm a little dismayed at the high cost of some lingerie suppliers, but realise that good quality costs money. I think stockings have gotten a bad press because of their association with the porn industry, but I think that they're glamourous and are much more preferable to tights. 

Sorry for interrupting you gents, and thank you for your good manners.

Annabelle.

Why must people who feel kicked down in their life feel the need to perpetuate the bad feelings.

Such a shame they cannot break the cycle, accept advice or look for help.
