Lovely Hosiery 101

With all the pin ups you see on this blog it will probably come as no surprise that I love girlie lingerie. I can't help myself from following the luxury lingerie blogs. There is a great article over at Fru Fru Fashionista - called A Brief Lesson in Hosiery. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

You have to wonder where they get girls with legs like these to model the nylons - you'll see what I mean. They have got to be stretching them out in Photoshop.

  1. Hi Deb,

    I have two daughters pushing 6'. Aside from the genetics I like to think that the thousands upon thousands of dollars I spent on milk went into making those femurs that long. One of my daughters was approached about becoming a model. Instead she decided to become a role model and works with society's castoffs. I would much rather see her do that than have those long legs modelling lingerie.

  2. Hi There
    Hummm so it's the milk - it's probably too late for me. Congratulations on your daughter, she sounds really great.
