It’s no secret that sheer hosiery and I don’t normally mix. If you read the post I wrote last year about my tumultuous relationship with hosiery, then you’ll already know why. You see, I’m sick and tired of wasting my money on products that hardly make it out of the box without getting destroyed and ending up in the garbage. Who wants to spend money on something you don’t get to enjoy for even once?
Never mind my usual inability to get a pair of sheer hosiery on without creating a run (My nails? Jewelry? They’re all culprits) it felt like all hope of ever successfully wearing sheer hosiery went out the window when I adopted my energy-filled pup, Olive. Doggy paws and hosiery? Well there’s an even worse combination than long nails and sharp jewelry!
But, thankfully, there is hope for the stylish dog mom out there. You know, the one that doesn’t want their only choice in bottoms to involve track pants or jeans. The secret? It happens to be no secret at all, because the hosiery that don’t rip that you’ve been searching for are literally made by Secret.
Ever since I first discovered the SECRET® SILKY® run-resistant sheer pantyhose, my life – well, mainly my style during the cooler months – has changed for the better. No-longer do I have to stock up on extra pairs of hosiery knowing there’s a good chance I’ll destroy most of them before I even get them on. No-longer do I have to run from my dog, afraid she’ll shred my sheers if she jumps up to show me love. No-longer do I have to consider myself the woman who can only wear 100 denier legwear or higher (if that’s even an option).
So what’s the big difference? SECRET® SILKY® hosiery are made with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber that has an amazing run-resistant technology that prevents perforations, small holes or a snag from turning into a run. I mean, can I get an AMEN?
What’s great is that you’ve still got options when it comes to these fabulous run-resistant legwear. You can choose from the full sheer-to waist for when you’re going with a super short hemline or enjoy the benefits of the Control Panty option to help you suck it all in and feel smooth all over. Even the Knee Highs help get the look I want (especially when there’s a no-shoe policy at a holiday house party) but without having to worry that my favourite velvet, silk or chiffon statement piece will cling to my hosiery all night long.
