Tips On Picking The Right Hosiery

Hosiery in the form of pantyhose and stockings are primarily used to enhance the look of one’s legs. This, therefore, means that choosing which hosiery to buy should be done with care. Here are some tips you might want to keep in mind to ensure that you don’t end up buying the wrong hosiery:

  1. When buying a pantyhose, make sure that the color blends with the rest of your clothes rather than standing out.
  2. Nothing can be more trendy than having a stocking that matches your skin color and looks barely there. Partner this with shorter skirts and shoes with high, thin heels to create the illusion of length.
  3. A “first aid treatment” for a run would be to hold them together with a nail polish. However, as soon as you get home, make sure that you throw it away. Being fashionable means making sure that you do not wear stockings with run.
  4. Unless you are trying to make a fashion statement or are attending a costume party, stay away from fishnet as well as stockings with designs in them unless you are a teenager.
  5. Although it would be unwise to spend too much on stockings and pantyhoses, it is equally foolhardy to not take into consideration the type of material your hosiery is made of. The best materials are usually Lycra and Elastane. The higher the amount Elastane or Lycra a stocking has, the better its quality is. Of course, this could also mean having to pray a higher price.

So, till next time, flaunt on!


The Sexy Geek

Not so long ago, people used to think of geeks as outsiders and deviants. Today, however, being a geek is more than just a way of life for most people, it’s actually considered to be sexy!

So I’ve come up with a list of reasons why geeks are sexy:

  1. What’s not hot about a girl who dresses up in skinny jeans and tank tops and can beat you at virtually every computer game without breaking a sweat.
  2. And what’s not hot about a guy who can easily discuss Einstein’s Theory of Relativity without breaking a sweat and without having the person he is talking to have a nosebleed.

  3. Girl geeks can be ultra-hot when wearing horn-rimmed eyeglasses, short skirt and tight blouses. By pairing this ensemble with a knee-high stockings, ultra-hot just became way beyond 100 degrees Celsius.
  4. Geeks can be pretty handy, and mushy, when it comes to knowing how to make a butterfly land in their date’s hand and even how to repair a broken shoe.
  5. Lastly, if not for them, the world would not have known iPhone, laptops, and PSP.

Tata…I’m off to find me a geek! Flaunt on!


That Girl From Ipanema

Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m having “Girl from Ipanema” playing continuously on my iPod right now.



Well, tall women usually have all the fun when it comes to dressing up and accessories, but not all tall women know how to make sure they look sexy even if they have thin legs or long torso. Here are some tips to make you feel like that girl from Ipanema:

  1. When choosing jewelleries, make sure that you consider your body frame. If you tend to be on the thin side, keep away from chunky pieces and instead go for those layered thin ones especially if you’ve got a nice set of cleavage and collar-bone.
  2. Tall women with thin legs have a lot of options when it comes to shoes. those with round toes and multiple straps like those found in gladiator sandals are great for those with long but thin legs. Ankle boots are also a great choice.
  3. If you have extremely thin legs as most tall women are wont to have, you should consider keeping away from micromini skirts and tight jeans. On the other hand, if you have long but shapely legs, wearing stockings can highlight them.
  4. Vertical stripes tend to give you a taller appearance so you might want to go instead for horizontal stripes as well as small print patterns.
  5. Make sure that you go for separates. Having a top that’s independent from your skirt or pants makes your body look like its made of two areas instead of one long column.

There you have it….tall and lovely!

Dressing Up For A Hot Date

Going out on a hot date can be nerve-wrecking especially if you don’t know what clothes to wear. Good thing we’re here to rescue you! Here are some things that you might want to keep in mind to make your hot date a truly HOT one:

  1. Make sure that you wear clothes you are most comfortable in. Regardless of what kind of date you are going to, being yourself allows your inner beauty to shine. You cannot do this if what you are wearing is too tight or is not really something that you would wear on a regular occasion.
  2. Highlight your assets and hide your unnecessary curves. If you tend to be on the plus side, go for dark colors as this creates the illusion of being slim. If you are a bit on the thin side, go for bright colors and prints. Go for a short sexy skirt if you have long legs. Show off your cleavage and nice collar bone with a V-neck sexy wear but make sure you leave something for his imagination.
  3. Accessorize! Do not overdo it, however. A few complementing pieces would do.
  4. Get a good pair of shoes. If you have long legs or would like to create an illusion of being tall, go for stilettos. Make sure that you have on a good pair of stockings in a shade that complements your wear as well as your accessories. You can skip the stockings if you would be going for an open-toed sandal.
  5. Lastly, make sure that you smell nice – shampoo your hair, brush your teeth and put on a light perfume.

There you have it. Have fun with your date and make sure that you BE YOURSELF!

Seduction 101

True love is worth the wait but it doesn’t mean that you would just sit in one corner and wait for the right guy to notice you. You also need to do your part. Here are some ways by which you can find the man of your dreams:

  1. You need to up your confidence level. As clichéd as it may sound, believing in yourself actually helps other people believe in what you’ve got. Your belief in yourself will show with how you establish eye contact, how warm you are when you are with a guy, and how you break down the barriers between you and your date.
  2. Not sexy!

  3. Dress sexy but make sure that you leave something for the guys’ imagination. If you want to go for a dress that’s mostly made of lace, make sure that you have a sexy camisole underneath. Dressing sexy also means proper fitting bras and panties. No loose bra straps or visible panty lines.
  4. Walk sexy. It helps if you can do this while wearing stilettos. Stilettos can highlight your legs and make you look taller. Plus guys find stilettos really sexy. Make sure, however, that you’ve got the right stockings to go with your stilettos.
  5. Appear innocent yet naughty. This can easily be done by wearing little make-up with red lipstick and mascara.
  6. Make sure you smell nice. A freshly shampooed hair combined with a hint of perfume can leave guys wanting more. Of course, for them to appreciate your smell better, you have to make sure that you sit close to your guy and touch him playfully every once in a while.

Now, what happens next is up to you.


Choosing & Taking Care of Your Stockings

By definition, the term “hosiery” denotes any leg wear or garments worn directly on the feet and legs. Oftentimes, hosiery garments are made by knitting methods. Today, hosiery can be used to denote anything worn over the feet and legs including stockings, tights, pantyhose, leggings, and leg warmers. Unfortunately, even though more and more women are discovering the beauty of hosiery garments, very few are well aware of how to choose the right one and how to take care of it.

  1. If you would be wearing your stockings on a regular basis, opt for those made from 15% lycra or spandex and try to keep away from sheer ones. Keep in mind that the latter will have a higher probability for runs.
  2. Make sure that you know your size. going for the wrong size could make you feel uncomfortable and might result to your stockings rolling down every now and then.
  3. Keep a good stock of stockings and pantyhose in different materials to suit your various clothes as well as the various events that you might be attending. Many women swear by keeping stockings and pantyhose inside the refrigerator.
  4. Take your time when putting on or taking off your hosiery garments in order to prevent any snags. When taking them off, make sure that you do not pull them off from the toes. Start at the other end and slowly roll them down using your palms.
  5. Should your stockings get a run, you can use a nail polish as a first-aid. However, this does not mean that you can be careless with your stockings. Keep in mind that stockings with nail polish are never sexy.

Sexy At 40

Most people equate the word “sexy” with being young and voluptuous. This is the reason why most women are afraid of getting old. In truth, being sexy does not have anything to do with your age. Here are some tips to keep in mind for you to look sexy even when you are already 40:

  1. Make sure that you do not date yourself with the clothes that you wear. However, keep your wardrobe up-to-date without appearing to be trying too hard to stay young.
  2. At 40, showing some skin should not be something to be afraid of. A good-fitting blouse with a neckline that shows off your cleavage can do wonders if paired with the right bra.
  3. If you’ve got great legs, go for skirts that end just below your knees. Although it could be tempting, do not go for micro minis no matter how great your legs are. Make sure you pair your skirt with good stockings to hide any varicose veins that you might have.
  4. Stay away from too much make-up. You have to keep in mind that your skin is not as flexible as they use to be and could easily succumb to acne and wrinkles if you do not take good care of it. This is aside from the fact that you would not want to go around looking like a clown.
  5. Nothing says “sexy” more than a fit body. In order to keep your body fit, you need to have the right diet as well as exercise. This would also help keep your skin taut.

So, still feeling un-sexy at 40?

Flaunt on!
