Hosiery (Natural)-c/o Hanes

Several weeks ago, Hanes hosiery contacted me asking if I wanted to participate in sampling their "sheer" line of hosiery. I was a bit weary at first because if you haven't noticed by now, I love wearing only opaque tights during the winter and honestly, I usually think of much older women when I think of hosiery. So before I agreed to this, I told them that I would participate only if I was allowed to give my honest opinion on how I felt about their hosiery upon receiving it. They had no problem with that and hosiery was sent to me to be tested.

So...I'm (surprisingly) impressed. The material itself feels light to the skin and it's very hard to tell that I'm actually wearing any hosiery. They truly are sheer as they say they are which gives my legs a smooth finish and that definitely is a good thing because I have a slight, visible battle wound on my left leg from a rather embarrassing incident several years ago. I'll spare you the details.

Readers, what do you think? Yay or nay to hoisery?


  1. Wow, I don't normally like hosiery either, but you really can't tell that you're wearing any. Very intriguing....

  2. Wow! It doesn't even look like your wearing hosiery! I have an issue with nude pairs because they look so unnatural but these look great! You convinced me to pick up a pair to try out :)


  3. I can't hardly tell you were wearing hosiery. Love it!
