'Women's' Tights

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

Hey Fred, careful who you call. :roll: Maybe over there that's the image, and yes I have seen the sites with pictures to prove it. MOH and I were confirmed ASDA shoppers, the equivalent of Walmart over here. But then ASDA has a completely different corporate feel to Walmart and the demographics are different. Then an Aldi opened up just down the road from us so our allegiance has now switched - Aldi is cheaper and the quality is more than acceptable. :D
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

ALDI grocery stores have about a quarter of the footprint of Wal*Mart Target Kroger Safeway and everything is FRESH with a smaller inventory
that is turned frequently. No stale stuff or dated issues with the stock. Smaller stores have a better more controlled inventory than the
giant mecca merchandising mammoths. Only drawback to this is sometimes ALDI maybe out of stock of very popular items. But come back the
next day and voila back in stock and FRESH.
ALDI started out with a CASH concept but now accepts plastic. Eliminating the fees and surcharges of credit cards was a great savings idea but
ALDI had to change its payment methods when business was suffering - Oh you can still pay in cash but plastic just can't be ignored !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

Used to shop at Asda, now Morrisons. Aldi/Lidl are cheaper because they don't hold the variety that Asda/Sainsburys/ Tesco and others do. Aldi Super 6 veg is also a lot smaller, so lb for lb is probably the same.

Here, here, Ralph, You have said what should have been said a long time ago to all those that mock and judge. When it all comes down to it we will answer for our own actions and not those of others. When you pass judgement on others based on your own standards you are in the end passing judgement on your standards. As Ralph so aptly point out, it is very possible that these folks are simply wearing the best that they have and are doing the best that they can, and even in more than a few cases are simply enjoying a treat that they cannot normally afford. Yes we may pity them but then the question must be asked if any of those that have mocked have held out their own hand and offered any assistance to the one they are mocking.

Then we come here and ask the world not to mock but accept us while we are mocking others. "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.....and all the assembled dropped their stones and departed." We should keep in mind that if you wish to be treated with respect you must also treat others with that same respect that you wish.

Agreed Gusto. And I will second your note about the US military bases on foreign soil, there are a lot of the younger military folks that have not learned what it takes to respect the locals so that they can get the respect they work so hard for.

Not as to the real topic of this thread I have noted that many of those that wear 'tights' often complain about the durability of those same 'tights' especially that they tend to tear in the gusset area. I once struggled with that as well and after many observations I noted that the tearing usually occurred when the legs of the 'tights' felt tight around the upper thigh when they were put on. After a while I noted that when this occurred that the fabric near the top appeared to be going around the upper thigh rather than going straight down the leg. On other occasions when the fabric was going straight down the tearing problem was not evident. So I started to actually work the legs of the tights back around so that they were straight on the leg and lo and behold the tearing at the gusset began to go away. I am now of the opinion that if you are experiencing this issue it may very well be that when you are donning the 'tights' what is happening is that a twist is being introduced which is adding addition strain on that seam which leads to the seam tearing apart. Pay attention to how the tights feel as you put them on and if they feel tight around the upper leg you may have a twist in the leg which should be corrected before you continue getting dressed.

Yes any thing with stretch and/or elastic should never be put in the dryer.
