Patterned Tights: Voodoo Hoisery
I’m “on tour” (i.e. chauffeuring) with two international authors at the moment, which means that I can dress up a little without having customers ask me – with some suspicion – why I’m looking so fancypants.
Up side means I can get some more wear out of my PLBD, down side is that I’d forgotten how much I loathe pantihose.
I’d actually planned to wear my Spanx Fishnets today but they’ve disappeared (possibly tossed due to lack of use?) so instead I had to settle for some patterned tights from Voodoo.
I was beyond excited last winter when I discovered that both Voodoo and Kayser were doing a range of patterned stockings in a plus size. Some of them were even in colours!
I was a bit disappointed in the end though – the range was minimal, the fit was iffy, they wore out really quickly between the thighs and (my pet peeve) they constantly crept lower and lower until I was doing a Dick Van Dyke style penguin waddle.
I usually combat this problem by wearing a second pair of knickers over the pantihose to keep them aloft, but of course I forgot today and had to excuse myself three times to surreptitiously duck into the loo and wrench the crotch up from between my knees. Noice!
