They say that clothes make the man. But what do they say about a woman and her clothing? We would argue that what a woman wears has the power to not only attract a man but also exude confidence, femininity, and sex appeal. And there is no article of clothing that does this better than thigh-high stockings.
Think about it—when you see a woman in a pair of thigh-highs, what comes to mind? For us, it’s confidence, seduction, and style. Whether they are worn with a t-shirt and a flirty little skirt, or a little black dress, thigh-highs always make an outfit more interesting, more fun, and more sexy. There is something about the way they hug a woman's curves that just screams confidence and sensuality.
What do Men Think of Thigh-Highs?
We’re not the only ones who feel this way. In a poll hosted on The Straight Dope, over 100 men answered the question: "What do you think of women in thigh-high stockings?" Here are some of their responses:
"I find stockings and garters (and garter belts!) both sexy and alluring”
“She's confident and knows what she wants."
"She's playful and flirtatious."
“..makes my mouth water.”
"She's sexy and knows it."
“There is something unspeakably erotic about getting a glimpse of such a thing from under a skirt.”
As you can see, there is a clear consensus here—men find women in thigh-high stockings to be sexy AF. So if you're looking to boost your confidence and dial up the sex appeal, slip into a pair of thigh-highs the next time you get dressed. We promise you won't regret it.
Thigh-high stockings are sexy because they exude confidence, femininity, and style. Wearing them makes any outfit more interesting and more attractive to the opposite sex.
Another added bonus aesthetic with wearing thigh-highs? They make your legs look longer.
Thigh-High Stockings are the Secret to “Longer” Legs
We’re sure you’ve all seen those pictures of celebrities and models where they are wearing short dresses or skirts with the appearance of very long legs. And while genetics plays a role in determining how long and slender a person's legs can be, there is another trick that you can try- thigh-high stockings. Yes, you read that right - thigh-high stockings can make your legs look longer and more slender than they actually are. Here's how it works.
When you wear a pair of thigh-high stockings, the eye is naturally drawn up the length of your leg from your feet to your thighs. This creates the illusion of longer, more slender legs. In addition, the color of the stocking can also have an effect on the perceived length of your legs.
For example, if you wear a pair of black thigh-high stockings, your legs will appear even longer and more slender because black has a slimming effect. If you want to really give your legs a boost, try pairing your thigh-high stockings with a pair of high heels or thigh-high boots. The added height will further accentuate the length of your legs.
Whether you prefer the classic look of black stockings or want to add a pop of color with a brightly patterned pair, don't forget to add a pair of thigh-highs to your wardrobe. So ladies, next time you're getting dressed for a night out on the town or for a special occasion, don't forget to slip into your favorite pair of thigh-highs! You'll be glad you did.
