They are sheer the full length of the leg and so feminize the legs by helping to mask any leg discoloration like bruising, veins or hair. By their nature they have a natural sheen that also makes the legs look much healthier and attractive. Many pantyhose wearer’s also love the fact that this form of hosiery can illuminate V.P.L. or ‘visible panty line’.
The origin’s of pantyhose go back to the the 1950’s and 60’s and were invented by Allen Gant but really came to prominence as an alternative to stockings with the rise of the mini-skirt fashion in the late 1960’s and ‘70’s. Initially all styles were a sheer to waist from the foot. However over the years as they have become a serious competitor to stockings and then becoming more popula, their designs have become much more intricate and inventive.
‘French Cut’ refers to the design that mimics a high cut panty at the top of the hosiery. French cut panties have full coverage in the back and the front but are cut very high on the side of the leg. These pantyhose have a French Cut brief and gusset built in and are, in addition, a support pantyhose made of 85% nylon and 15% spandex.
