I Sell Hosiery [Part 2]: Super Tall Support Hosiery Project

I want to create super long hosiery for you, even though I will not be able to wear it. Therefore, I started a project at, called Super Tall Support Hosiery. You can read about the technical details at that page. That specific project is long dead, but I am still actively using it to keep in touch with you all. The best way to keep in touch is by paying attention to the blog of that project page. To protect your privacy, I recommend using the project's news feed.

You can also subscribe to the blog that you are reading now.

It would be helpful to give me your contact information.

You can go to Hosiery Advocate's Boutique's contact page, and leave a message there.

You could also leave your contact info in the comments below. If you actually want to say something below, then comment first, and then leave your contact info in a separate comment, so that I can delete it after I get a copy. I want to do that, because I want to protect your privacy. Keeping your contact info in a separate comment allows me to delete it, without deleting what you want to say.

New Lycra Used With Plus Size Tights

Even the tabloids are reporting about it. This is special, because it uses a new Lycra. I just skimmed through the article, so I do not quite understand what it does, but the hosiery seems to have a better layer between the legs to prevent chafing.

Bear in mind, though, that the photos in the tabloid article probably photo edited the model's head to be smaller, so that she looks to be plus size, when she really probably is not plus size. This means that it might not fit you well.

If you like what you see, then get more info at MyTights's Cette page.

On an interesting note, I noticed that Cette used what appeared to be a baggy top for 1 of the photos. I felt that they could have chose something more flattering, such as this.

Zooey Deschanel's Black Opaques With Teal Dress

Is she hot or not? E! Online says that she doesn't look good, but I think that Zooey Deschanel looks fine in the photo. I do not think that people are going to ignore her dress, just because of her hosiery.

Do the black opaques really take our attention away from the dress? If so, then what kind of hosiery would you have advised her to wear? Should women be encouraged to dress like her?

I would love to read your comments below.

Andreas Lucius Loh: About Singapore The Homeland

I am so glad to present to you the next portion of the interview.

We could always check Wikipedia for information about Singapore, but it is nice to read about it from people that we trust. After all, Wikipedia will not tell us about hosiery in Singapore, right? Today, we will see what Andreas has to say about it. Be sure to check out the other interview questions, by clicking interviews, which can also be found in the right column, under Popular Topics, or by clicking on a link below.

I Sell Hosiery [Part 1]: Hosiery Advocate's Boutique

Most of my hosiery sales are going to come from the sales of Silks hosiery at Hosiery Advocate's Boutique. If you have not seen my site yet, then please visit it before reading further. You should not need to bookmark it. It is recorded on the Find Me which is listed at the top.

What do you think might be the hottest selling item? The most popular products by far, are waistband-free opaques, and waistband-free sheers. The panty portion is adjustable, in that you can stretch it, and the grip on the inside will stay up. An interesting aspect is that the legs are almost the same length, so you can buy a size 1, if you want a shorter panty, or a size 3, if you want a larger panty. Not only is it the most popular, it is the easiest to sell, because the opaques are easy to open up and check for problems.

Do you think that this business, and the current assortment of products, will ever be enough to support me financially? I love running the business, because I can learn how to run a business, and practise running it. Those are the reasons that I run this business. So, no, I do not make enough from the current setup to support myself. I also appreciate the opportunity to help women find a product that they have been searching for for quite some time.

A frequent comment that I get is that they have been searching for the waistband-free opaques, and I am the only store that sells them.

If you hate the idea of a binding waistband, then I encourage you to try the waistband-free opaques.

Also, I would like to mention that there are leggings on sale. If you buy in the next little while, then you can save $5 per pair. They are smooth to waist, and can be worn around the home.

Thank you for reading!

Video About Nutrition

Wearing a skirt or shorts that is so high that you can see the reinforced portion is not classy, but it is still okay and pleasant, as long as it is not gratuitous. In other words, a glimpse of the reinforced area is okay.

In these videos, the host shows us a little reinforcement; probably unintentionally.

What do you think? Is she classy? Is she playful? How would you describe her fashion to your friends? Do her outfits make good business attire?

Is She Wearing Pantyhose? #76; #77; #78

I was browsing articles for photos of women in hosiery, and found this article about fashion trends, and an interesting photo caught my attention.

From left to right, they are gal #76, gal #77, and gal #78. I think that it is not very obvious. Do you agree?

Gwen Stefani And Mostly Opaque Footless Hosiery

Those of you, who might wonder if footless opaques are for you, should take inspiration from Gwen Stefani. Other than the photo below, the page shows her combining footless mostly opaques with an all black outfit.

Some of you are better at fashion than me. What do you think?

The Sun Chooses Mantyhose As 1 Of 2012's Buzz Words

Most enthusiasts knew that Mantyhose existed for some time, but the world is still catching up. At the end of 2012, The Sun chose their favourite buzz words of the year.

When I first read this, I was excited, because I thought that mantyhose made into the Oxford Dictionary, but unfortunately, we will need to wait for quite some time, if the word gets in any dictionary at all. It turns out that Oxford Dictionaries just chose a buzzword, which was mentioned in the article.

Perhaps, if we used mantyhose in regular conversation more, then we might make it a more mainstream item? It would still be hard to do, though.

4′ Medium Support Hosiery For Tall People

The manufacturer has been able to make medium support hosiery for tall people. It is designed for men in general, but should accommodate women too. It will be 4′; long from the toe to the gusset. This should be long enough for most tall people, without stretching. Taller people can wear it, with stretching.

Your foot is probably over a foot long, if you are a tall person. That takes up 12″, which leaves 36″ of material. That means you would have an inseam of 36″ or more. I am 5′6″ tall, and I have a 30″ inseam. My size 6.5 feet are about 12″ long, so 6′ tall people should fit in this just fine.

I would like to get a feel for how many of you are interested in this kind of thing. It could cost around $20/pair, because of how difficult it is to make, and sell. It actually requires more manual labour than normal short hosiery.

Thank you for reading!

Happy 2013!

May you be blessed with that many pairs of hosiery, this year!
