    Stockings v Tights v Nowt

    Saw this report in the Telegraph a couple of days ago Sales of stockings plunge as tights go footless

    Have your say Read comments

    Have your say: Have you ditched stockings for footless tights? Sales of stockings have fallen dramatically as footless tights, popularised by Kate Moss and Sienna Miller, have exploded on to the fashion scene, according to a new report.
    Latest figures show that UK sales of stockings - once the epitome of Hollywood glamour - have halved over the past four years from £10 million in 2002 to £5 million last year. Over the same period, sales of knee-highs, which include footless tights, have increased from £46 million to £51 million, the Mintel study found.
    Hilary Alexander, The Daily Telegraph's Fashion Director, said that stockings had lost their sophistication.
    "Very few women wear stockings and suspenders any more. They're great for the bedroom and for a really hot date but day to day they are very fiddly and leave bumps under your skirt," she said.
    "Footless tights appeal to women of all ages. You can wear them under dresses or with skirts. In the summer, they're great to wear with a pair of pumps or flip flops if your legs aren't tanned and you don't want to wear tights in the hot weather."
    The report showed that, after almost a decade in decline, the entire hosiery market grew to £272 million last year.
    Katy Child, a senior consumer analyst at Mintel, said over the past five years women had become more feminine. "For years the market has been plagued by declining usership as women have increasingly opted for trousers in preference to skirts to dresses," she said.
    "The main factor behind the return to growth has been fashion, with skirts and dresses becoming popular once again and hemlines rising."

    So it got me thinking as to what do you prefer to have your ladies wearing. Me, I've always been in favour of stockings and suspenders, nothing beats the thrill of running your hand underneath the skirt of a glamorous girl, up along the stockings and then encountering the warm pliable flesh above the stocking tops, knowing that your ultimate goal is nearly achieved. Tights dont give the same feeling as you know that there is usually something else
    underneath these







    So whats your views?

    Going to try a post a poll with this.

    Yes. Can be quite sexy, too.

    But, most importantly, practical.

    KW has forsaken me for Ruby and her four sisters. I am not dating now and am trying to sue the TV "find a lady in your area" advertiser for using my name under some fatso's pic. I am not, nor ever have been, fat.

    Bare brown legs, silky smooth. And I like my women like that, too.

    Had a bit of a holiday in Cha-am. Great seafood, but the water wasn't very nice.

    I don't know mate - Americans wearing short with short white socks and sandles can be rather amusing

    So we got stockings and sussies up in front, nothing at all is making a late burst and cuming up on the inside, stockings is a distant third whilst tights never took off at all. It looks as though there was a dark horse socks but it didn't get entered.
