footless panty hose

yborgalJuly 24, 2003

I'm looking for panty hose that end at mid calf length. Is there such an item on the market and who makes it? Or do I just have to cut a regular pair?

Mona, if you cut them, won't they ride up your leg ?

Have you tried the undies that go to mid calf; they look like bicycle shorts. They are lightweight spandex, tummy tamers and all around figure smoothers.....

Mitch, they probably would ride up. The reason I was looking for the stockings rather than the long undies is I wanted just a little control but not as much as the capri length girdles. I found out Spanx makes them. Now I just have to see if they're carried locally.

mona, you are right, I bought 2 pairs of these thin girdles and honestly they are too warm. They do give a slim look but I feel so "sausage casing" stuffed in them.

I have tried the L'eggs brand shapers. They come in a mid-thigh and a mid-calf length. They are merchandised and sold with pantyhose at department and drug stores. I also tried No-nonsense brand. No Nonsense were hot and scratchy.... yuck!
The L'eggs were microfiber and surprisingly cool and comfortable. I wore them under a silky bias-cut skirt and was very happy with their tummy-flattening ability. If you want to look smooth and 10 lbs. lighter they are great! I find them perfectly comfortable for office wear, but in the heat of summer they would probably get too warm, say at an outdoor function or where you were doing a lot of walking/dancing.

you want spanx, expensive but so comfortable you will wear them all the time. They have a web site.

Here is a link that might be useful: spanx

I'm in New York city this week and have tried on the Spanx pantyhose, love them; I also bought their knee highs which are supposed to not bind the calf..... I have skinny legs yet knee highs bother me...

I have a few formal affairs coming up and needed some kind of support so the Spanx pantyhose seem to fit the bill; I am bringing home a few pairs since we don't have them in Montreal....

Their original claim to fame are the footless pantyhose; did anyone ever try them ?

I will buy these only if they help me look like the body topless girl on the opening page of the spanx website, high heels and all. No seriously, I will be trying the footless pantyhose.
Great buy on e-bay weed! Will try and let you all know.

My spanx pantyhose are not footless, they are like regular ones.

A lot of those available now, with the now popular look of wearing those under a skirt; I like the look and it suits me; it solves the problem of white ghostly legs in the summer.

there are still all kinds of capris and footless tights available, and I'm still wearing them, I guess I don't change my style too often.
