It's not a great time to be in the pantyhose business. It wasn't long ago that they were a staple in a career woman's wardrobe. Now, sheer hosiery faces an even a bigger snag -- more than a decade of declining sales.

Women just aren't wearing as much sheer hosiery these days. Hanesbrands reported that sales are down nearly 70 percent since 1995. Hanesbrands Vice President Romaine Sargent said women have greater wardrobe options as the workplace has become more casual.

Do you think pantyhose are a thing of the past?

I still wear them sometimes but they always manage to become destroyed at the end of the day somehow.

I still wear them...
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 1/5/07 - 4:59:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think underwear in general are a thing in the past.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 1/5/07 - 5:10:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think so. I don't know anyone who wears them without being required to for work, graduation ceremonies, etc. I certainly wouldn't unless I had to.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 1/5/07 - 5:12:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe. I don't wear them.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 1/5/07 - 5:16:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hope so. Those high waisted ones at least.
But I still wear high thighs sometimes with skirts and whatnot. They look more professional than just bare legs.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 1/5/07 - 6:25:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I don't. I still wear them.

I've stopped wearing it!

As for 'pantyhose'. it is indeed becoming a thing of the past.

BUT STOCKINGS WILL NEVER, EVER GO OUT OF FASHION.

No, plenty of women still wear them.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 1/25/07 - 3:34:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
They're not as popular as they used to be, but there's still many women wearing them.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 4/1/07 - 8:53:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, way. Thats hot
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 4/1/07 - 9:35:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
They are for me. As well as undies.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 4/2/07 - 1:09:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
I wish. I wouldn't be caught dead in a pair.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 4/7/07 - 9:25:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
I still wear them, but not that often.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 4/17/07 - 11:19:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
We're FORCED to wear them in band to go with these horrible "dress gowns"
Bleh.
I've worn it...Seven times so far this year?
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 4/21/07 - 5:23:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
I can't stand them. The sort of nyloney feel on y skin gives me the creeps.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 6/1/07 - 1:39:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
I wear thigh highs regularly. It makes me feel sexy ;).

The crotch part itches though so I avoid panty hose.

I can't go without underwear. Maybe under sweat pants but otherwise I feel like I smell or something. Especially with a skirt.

13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 6/24/07 - 8:14:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I like them. Though sometimes it makes my legs look really tan, and the rest of my body is pale.
13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 8/11/07 - 2:58:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, they will always be nessisary (sp?) when you are on a stage with spot lights on you, or else your legs reflect light really badly and look really bad.

You just have to get the right color, from one of my shows in Guys and Dolls, i had a huge run in my pantyhose, so my mom had to get them while i was at school, and she got some made for really dark skin, so I looked like I was 2 different skin tones, black on my legs, and really pale Irish skin everywhere else.

13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 8/12/07 - 2:04:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know anyone who still wears them. I'd say so.
13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 8/12/07 - 2:09:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, but they should be. They get all itchy and hot and make me feel so gross.
13 yrs ago - Saturday 10/6/07 - 7:30:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
They're so uncomfortable. I only wear the ones that comes up to the knees with certain shoes.
13 yrs ago - Saturday 10/6/07 - 9:46:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, many women still wear them, particularly in the winter.
13 yrs ago - Sunday 10/7/07 - 3:30:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. I always wore them to work. It's more professional. And going out... same. I think goinig back to stockings and garter abelts is a good idea. If one leg runs, just toss it. It's sexy too!
