Pantyhose for Men

Thursday, 02 April 2009

pantyhose menThe XXI century is not only the age of high technology and development of human cognition horizons. The XXI century is the time of sexual revolution that allows to extent the rights and privileges of the soft sex in the world. And this century gave «bonuses» for men either. In many spheres it equalized men and women in rights. And so far as women are entitled to wear pants and receive an adequate salary, to run for the state posts and succeed in life, then men could relax a bit if the part of their functions lies heavy on fragile women shoulders, at first and second, they found lots of useful stuff in «unisex» style.

And one of this valuable stuff is pantyhose which refer to a garment typically worn by women. And during the ringing frost women had to manage with not very nice and not very comfortable though warm long johns, or underpants.

Any brutal macho man would get insulted a dozen years ago if he was offered warm pantyhose to wear. Nowadays he is free to choose a model to his taste. At the market of pantyhose for men there are various types and kinds of them, from ones that correct the shape of legs, from the esthetic point of view, to the ones that support blood circulation, from medical point of view. The selection of special pantyhose from sheer to black, from thin to very densed.

Thus, for cold winter evenings the pantyhose models in 70 and 100 den are quite essential. Today men finally realize that pantyhose are a comfortable, reliable and styled garment not only assigned for women.

And that fact that throughout the history the pantyhose were the prerogative of women is wrong. During the reign of the Roman Empire lower-class men who were busy with heavy work used to wear tight fitted pants. In the XIV century the skin-tight pants resembling the present pantyhose were included in the men's wardrobe of all classes. The tighter were the pants, the more expensive they cost. And the price was higher as the tighter they were. Yet, men considered honestly that this garment emphasized their masculinity. And the time when women tried to put them on, the men high opposed to this idea. Suspecting that women tried to usurp, they made all attempts not to fail in this battle for pants.

The history has always been developing as the time flies and very soon women won the right to wear pants. And not only this stuff. They also convinced their poor husbands that the prerogative to wear pants belonged to women, and only women. And poor men only failed to overcome this stigma that is extremely harmful for them, for the health, and you want to know why?

The point is that a woman who neglects to wear tights during the cold winter period has all chances to have her kidneys or ovaries chilled. And also it is easy digging for a man to chill his prostate. Thus, one should never consider only women as things tender and easy susceptible to chills. We should take care of our men either! And especially of those parts to be caringly warmed by comfortable pantyhose in winter time. And the fact that men used to secretly buy tights and wore them as protection from cold is another evidence that this garment is the integral part of unisex style. It is rather universal and good for both men and women.

In spite of this dry fact the current manufacturers spend a fortune and hold brainstorming sessions to find out the tool to overcome the «womanly» image of the pantyhose. In the opinion of many people, men wearing pantyhose are considered crossdressers or transvestites or fetishist or whatever else. Though the secret of the pantyhose's popularity is as easy as a pie: they are more comfortable than the warm but ugly and crude men's long johns.

The Company G. Lieberman & Sons (GLS Hosiery) was the first to start to manufacture and market pantyhose for the modern consumers. When the Company opened a storefront with its products on the web, it wanted the market review from the marketing analysts. And the survey findings greatly surprised the Company Management. It was found out that a great number of men bought and wore ordinary women's pantyhose as just a regular clothing garment and considered them as unisex thing.

And afterwards the Company manufactured and marketed a special model of men's pantyhose Comfilon also known as Activskin. These pantyhose won a great popularity and were marketed in a few dozens of thousand pairs a year.

In general, for the last 5 to 6 years, the production volume of the male product line increased four times. Nowadays this business involves the most influential companies in the sphere of pantyhose and stockings production. 

However, some men still feel doubtful and as winter comes they again pull on their old good long underwear. They are too timid to go and wear pantyhose and forget that women are not going to be shocked with this fact, though. The soft sex puts on pantyhose every winter. Apart from it, sheer pantyhose help to conceal skin defects while opaque pantyhose improve athletic performance visually. Some men wear pantyhose under trousers to avoid wearing socks. The advantage is that there is no need to look for the matching pair of socks or go out in different ones.


Another privilege is that pantyhose keep warmth very well. In spite of the fact that up-to-date threads are too fine, they provide warmth to the legs. You'd better wear pantyhose and ironically appear to your significant other in them. And do not be afraid that she would laugh! Otherwise you will gain the prostatitis that is likely to grow to the adenoma of prostate gland. And wearing pantyhose is nothing to compare with that!

Mens legwear has had some to limited support by kind folk like yourself but mostly seen, esp by Women, as a fetish thing. Many men see it as gay. It's a similar thinking towards mens skirts and leggings.
Men deserve a change in our wardrobes away from the drab baggy dark coloured rubbish we are offered now.
Pantyhose worn with shorts is a great look for all.
I hope one day the fashion industry will get behind this as a serious fashion idea and not just a novelty item on the runway.

I was sometime ago in Scandinavia and was in a "mosquito" rich area.
Of course i knew before I went to this area and my friends advised me to but some Anti-Mosquito pantyhose.
I thoughd it was a joke but I have ordered some of these stuff at WWW. The first two evenings I was ashamed and did not try them on and I was bitten by mosquito's. On the third evening I put the pantyhose on and I was very aware of the behavior of the mosquito's. I seems that the smell of the anti mosquito pantyhosed discouraged them. They wil try to 'land' on your leg but when they are close they fly away from you. I could wash the phose about 3-4 times before the effect declined.
This kind of phose can also protect against ticks and sandbugs as used by military in the Irak war.
My conclusion is that phose can help as a multifunctional leisure colthing. a phose also protects for dangerous jellyfish (AUS).
And last but not least the phose can bring more comfort to put on a wetsuit.
