The thrill and rush of wearing mantyhose in public
Nervous about going out in public and being judged? Afraid to have to explain your fashion choices to some people unaware of mantyhose? Stressed about being laughed at by people that are not comfortable enough in their skin to make fun at others?
The challenges of wearing mantyhose in public are tremendous. It’s so much easier to cover your legs up than just showcasing your legs…
We, men, for some reasons have such a harder time to have more freedom when it comes to fashion as opposed to women who, for some reasons, are not being overlooked if dressed more masculine or have shorter hairs. Why can’t we just tolerate and accept such an easy piece of clothing that enhance the look of our legs?
Well some men don’t care about being judged, most of them would be boosted by the confidence of having someone close to them accept or embrace it. Rob’s comment in a previous post was that he doesn’t care about showing his legs saying that most people don’t pay attention and the few that do won’t say anything. If anyone would approach him and ask him if he’s wairing pantyhose, then he would simply say “Yes, those are compression hosiery for medical reasons”. The more years go by, the more we tend to be more open minded about changes. Gay marriages are now legal in many countries, women can be wearing whatever they’d like, it’s our turn!
I can only appreciate those who do so, because I’m too ashamed or scared of being publicly judged or associated as “the guy wearing pantyhose”. I tend to follow the wagon, hoping others would go first and wait until it gets tolerated then go out without any fears. How bad it is for someone that tries that maintains such as blog… ?!
A lot of people would potentially see us as fetishists, perverts, cross dressers… but don’t actually understand it. It’s easier to give a name to something you don’t know rather than being ok and go with it. Many women and testimonials around the internet say that they are fine with it and sometimes are actually pushing their partner to wear them. This is great, but still my wife wouldn’t be very proud seeing me at the grocery store wearing them…
Check out the Flickr group showing various people wearing them in public, click here.
People’s reaction would most likely be activated if you were wearing a flashy pair of tights in public rather than being classic. If you wear a pair of skin toned pantyhose, people might not even notice (look below)
If you do so, make sure you have shaved legs… ! If you didn’t, then wear a pair of opaque nude tights or else it will look very ugly.
You can be more provocative and wear a pair of black semi opaques
Looks actually pretty cool, and is not really “in your eyes” because of a casual/sport outfit, people might think it’s part of your style.
Now this one is more provocative. Having your partner wear them and stick with you will definitively help to get people not putting you in the crossdresser or pervert category. If this guy was to wear them by himself, the reaction would be completely different, although on that photo, it doesn’t look very masculine.
The mantyhose.net guide is actually showing this person wearing them in a more fashion way, white opaques under jean shorts works quite well and is quite masculine, it’s just more “risque” and chances to be notices are higher.
Anyway, whether you have the guts to go out with them in public or not, there is definitively some kind of excitement of wearing them out there. I can recall wearing them for the first time outside, although under pants, I was wondering if people would notice that I don’t wear socks, I was scared and excited at the same time. Strange feeling maybe initiated because of the non-acceptance of hose in public and the strong desire to have them noticed and be complimented by women… But most of my time, I would wear them in the backyard, front porch knowing that nobody would notice but getting the feeling of having my pantyhosed legs exposed to the cold/wind.
My heat is pumping fast with the thought of stepping outside in hosiery, I am attracted to it and really wants to do so with my wife’s support, but I have this little angel or evil voice in my head that tells me that I am not ready to be judged. What a horrible society we are living in… Being feared of people’s judgement over your own well being is sad. It would be easier if a woman was to go out with a masculine item on because somehow we are ok with that.
I believe nude pantyhose would be a first step to wear outside, if you have your legs shaved of course to go out unnoticed.
