Pantyhose/Tights - Comfort or Torture???

Pantyhose, nowadays, seems to be the bane of a modern woman's existence. Women probably can't wait to rip off their pantyhose the moment they step into their home.

Some women feel that pantyhose are a punishment from medieval times. So who wouldwillingly don these incomparably constricting tubes of torture if they didn't have to?

Apparently, guys would. Truck drivers. Construction workers. Landscape guys. Even cowboys! These men knows the benefits of wearing support pantyhose or hosiery (a more common name, which sounds better then mantyhose).

It seems pantyhose for men are all the rage in Europe, and have been for quite a few years, but now the trend has spread to the U.S. in an effort to win converts here. In fact, there's a website out there dedicated to all things pantyhose: E-Mancipate.net was created as "a project to accelerate the acceptance of male pantyhose as a regular clothing item." It even has a page dedicated to teaching men (are applicable to women as well) how to don their pantyhose.

The guys who wear pantyhose claim they do so for support, warmth, circulation and comfort. Yes for comfort. I know the ladies would probably be screaming at the top of their voice ... COMFORT?!?! To the ladies, the pantyhose is probably a necessary evil, maybe. Warm, perhaps. (And they do make a skirt and boots look cute together.) But comfortable? Uh uh. They sag. They bunch. They itch. They snag. They run after they snag. They pinch. They twist. They keep scooting down a good several inches away from your nether regions when they should be snug up against them.

I think that's probably because the women wear either poor quality pantyhose or they got the wrong size. As a wearer of pantyhose, when the size is right, the fit is right ... there is no sagging at all !! Good quality pantyhose are very comfortable as they do not itch and glide well under clothes.

So men, you have legs too. Support pantyhose gives your legs the support needed for better blood circulation to prevent varicose veins and other veinous problems. At the same time, it provides warmth in cooler weather. So don your support pantyhose for better leg health, or for just nicer looking legs.
