Stockings vs. Pantyhose: Which is Sexier?
Before she puts on that sexy little outfit you purchased for a special occasion, wouldn't you love to see her stepping into a sexy, body-clinging, foundation undergarment. What good is a sexy, flirty dress if underneath there are institutional looking, old fashioned undergarments? Stockings and pantyhose are usually the only undergarments that can be seen while she is still clothed , and they are an important part of any ensemble. They can give her legs a smooth, shimmery look and add a touch of class - as well as provide a little bit of warmth when she wants to show off her legs in less-than-warm weather.
Pantyhose and Hosiery are Sexy
But what are they? How are they different? And the all-important question - which is sexier? Each person has a different idea of what is sexy and what they are wanting out of their undergarments, but both offer choices when someone wants to be as sexy as possible.
Stockings and Pantyhose are Similar
These undergarments are very similar, but have one key difference. Both are generally made of a combination of nylon and spandex and when they are worn they appear transparent and have a skintight fit. Both can also come in a variety of materials and constructions, such as seamed nylons and seamed stockings (which have a visible seam along the back), or fishnets, silk, cotton and almost any other material.
Key Difference Between Pantyhose and Stockings
Whereas pantyhose are one piece that come up to the waist and have a crotch gusset that can take the place of underwear, stockings are two or three pieces and have individual leg pieces that generally come up over the calves and to the middle of the thighs. They can be held up individually via an elastic band on the top, or with the use of a garter belt. A garter belt is worn under clothing around the waist, similar to a belt, and is used to hold up the stockings on the legs.
Stockings are Alluring
Both undergarments can both be sexy and enhance any outfit. However, stockings are generally considered a more aesthetic choice than pantyhose. They allow for a variety of options in garter belts and can be used for a "peek-a-boo" effect with high-cut dresses or skirts, allowing for the wearer's skin to show. If the wearer intends to reveal the undergarments, these may be the best choice as they permit the wearer to remove one at a time and show a combination of skin and undergarments. They are easy to slip into and just as easy to take off, and do not need to removed for those special moments.
Indulge in Full Coverage
Pantyhose are a good option if you wish to avoid the possibility of skin showing - since they go all the waist there is no exposed skin to be revealed. If the goal is too look sexy in an outfit, they may provide the best option since they can give the wearer a smooth line from waist to toe and can act as shape-wear - essentially compressing the stomach and rear end. They also are less noticeable under clothing - there are no unsightly lines, even underneath a tight outfit. They also offer a convenient alternative to the multi-pieces of stockings, but they can also be more difficult to get and off - potentially ruining a special moment. The wearer should consider under what circumstances the undergarments will be seen to best decide which will be sexier.
Thigh-High Stockings are Smoldering Hot
In reviewing both types of hosiery, pantyhose and stockings, both feature different characteristics which may possess sex appeal under different circumstances. Who can argue the attractiveness and appeal of a sexy pair of thigh high seamed nylons, especially if worn with a pair of five inch stilettos. They serve a dual purpose by covering a large portion of the legs and, at the same time, adorning her legs and drawing attention to her smooth, shapely, inner thighs. Stockings have mastered the peek-a-boo effect of showing just enough skin to drive a man into a frenzy-and have him begging for permission to place his hands upon the calves and thighs.
Stockings, especially thigh-high stockings worn with a garter belt, have much more sex appeal than a full bodied pair of sheer pantyhose. Pair them with a pair of sexy heels and the ground will begin to smolder beneath her feet. Don't you agree? Which would you prefer, if you were allowed a choice in the matter?
