Thigh highs that actually stay up! What? They actually exist!
I have mentioned on this blog before how it can be difficult to wear control-top pantyhose with a shaping dress or shaping slip. I know that can turn some women off, because some don’t like to wear garter belts and still others have nightmares when they think about pulling on the tops of their thigh highs all day just to keep them from slipping below the hemline.
Well, if you’re old-school like me and you still wear pantyhose from time to time, I have the answer for you: L’eggs Everyday Thigh Highs. They come in a 3-pack and are available at all the major retailers, including Walmart, CVS, Target and more! As for “Wow Factor” I wouldn’t be embarrassed to just wear these in front of someone else. They are not all frilly and lacy at the top, they just have an elastic cuff that actually stays up on your thigh (the cuff is the same color as the panty hose, so doesn’t look cheap or strange). And when I say “thigh” I don’ t mean mid-thigh. These actually go all the way up, to the tippy-top of your leg, so you can wear various lengths of skirts with them.
When I first saw these, I think they were only available in nude and beige. But now, I see online that they are also available in off-black. Naturally, I’m going to order some as soon as I’m done with this post! These are available in sizes A, B, and Q, and from personal experience, they don’t run the minute you try to put them on. My one gripe about expensive thigh highs is that there is nothing worse than spending $10-$20 on a pair – only to have them tear before you’ve even worn them outside.
Basically, I love these so much that I just wanted to share my find with the world. They come in plain packaging and I never would have given them a second glance, but because I had a run in my stockings, I just grabbed them and hoped they would work. I’m so glad I did! You will be glad you gave them a shot, too!
