    I was never able to accomplish the pulling it to the side and the ones that came with a way to unhook the crotch so you could go to the bathroom were impossible to rehook when you were finished. Too much bother in my opinion. Which is why I don't bother with a lot of fashion like panty hose and accessories. Too damn much to have to deal with. I like it simple. Pants, shirt, bra and panties, earrings and a touch of lipstick.

    I have made it 3 years since I have worn pantihose. I am a major fan of the trouser sock or the decorative anklet. My mother was upset that I didn't wear hose for the wedding. I said, "Mom, it's 85 degrees, sunny, with nothing but a little breeze. I am not going to suffer!" I can't believe it, but she came over to my side and didn't wear hose either!

    You know, it wasn't back then...or it didn't seem so...but hindsight is 20-20. I remember the snaps, and they were definitely too much hassle. And who wants to piddle around with things "down there" if you don't have to, when you're out, thinking you're cute?? The leotard did make it easier, though. Say if I wore a medium size, I'd buy an XL, and it was all good, and quick. Just a trick I learned from some really skinny witches!

    I actually loved one-piece pantsuits because I was petite and they made me "look" taller, I thought. And I wore bodysuits, even lacey underwear bodysuits for years! But I was about 100 lbs back then. I remember feeling so bad when I finally threw them out after I had gained a lot of weight. They were comfortable only if the line of snaps at the bottom were in the right place. Otherwise, not so comfy. And it definitely took a bit of planning to go to the washroom in a pantsuit.

    Yeah, funny memories for sure!

    Someone get my chariot!

    There really is nothing new in this world is there? I remember those from years ago. They were uncomfortable (yes, I had a pair and I don't know why now. )

    I've seen some that go to your knees, they're hideous. Don't get me started on the bedazzled/jeweled versions.

    The ones you posted actually look better and i'd probably try them on. Buy them? another story.

    I posted about this exact thing 2 yrs ago right here.
