Can pantyhose be used for Sports?!
I was intrigued by reading quite a few articles related to that topic.
To me, it’s hard to just get outside and wear mantyhose just because I can’t stand the idea of being judged or looked at. But I would feel so good if only I could just know that nobody cares!
I hardly get on my backyard or front porch wearing tights to say the truth, because of the fear to be seen. Anyway, the fact is that cyclists or joggers are wearing “lycra” in most cases leggings (call it whatever you’d like) gives a good excuse to wear them because it has became a standard. Tights can be then used for that purpose and because everyone can get on a bike or start running, this is a great excuse for doing so!
I don’t like running, and bicycle is not my cup of tea but I might give a shot at running in them!
Tights / Pantyhose can be used in many other sports (this is a post that I submitted a few days ago (http://www.mantyhose.ca/why-is-it-ok-for-sportsmen-to-wear-mantyhose/)), and given the history of fashion, it happened in the past to have sportswear items that became fashionable and worn by everyone, to name a few: Sport shoes (worn for comfort and style), dance items such as leggings or legwarmers etc.
So, sport, be our excuse to get out, and be fashionable enough that it becomes just cool to wear it every day!
Mantyhose actually provides benefits – It keeps you warm, it’s comfortable and it helps blood circulation. It’s like saying that we have a red Ferrari in our garage but won’t use it because people might judge you and you would feel looked at, so you would rather drive your VW Golf so people can’t notice it. Are we missing on having a great driving experience with our Ferrari?
