I have been wearing these hose for years. Recently they have become more challenging to locate. Thankfully I found HerRoom!

I highly recommend to anyone who is in the air or on their feet for long hours!

If you want to splurge, Harrington recommends a pair of silk tap shorts, like this pair from Harlow & Fox. “Silk is the ultimate lingerie fiber — cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and with a luxurious feel against the skin,” she says. “If you can afford silk, buy silk.” Harrington calls these her favorite elegant silk pair, and “the definition of everyday indulgence.“

Cora Harrington (a.k.a. the Lingerie Addict), the author of In Intimate Detail: How to Choose, Wear, and Love Lingerie, says that if you want something you can easily find at your local department store, Natori’s Girl Briefs are her favorite “mainstream” underwear (we heard about Harrington’s more obscure picks, too, which are further down this list). “They’re cute. They’re comfy. The Pima cotton means they’re supersoft,” she explains. “Nordstrom includes them in their annual anniversary sale, and my secret tip is to buy discontinued colorways … after all, no one cares what color your underwear is!” Dolley Frearson, co-founder and creative director of High Fashion Home, is another fan of the Natori Girl Briefs. “For everyday underwear, I need it to feel comfortable and breathable,” she says. “I also need it to appear smooth, and not pinch my skin in any place or ride up.” For Frearson, the Natori briefs check all of those boxes. “They will eventually replace almost all of your underwear in your drawer,” she promises.
Adding hosiery to a lingerie outfit is one of the best ways to create a truly memorable look. The hosiery isn’t meant to cover you up; instead, it highlights some of your best features and enhances the subtly sexy curves of your legs. Even something as simple as leggings or leg warmers can really take your appearance to the next level. And you don’t have to hide these items away for use in the bedroom, either. One of the fun things about hosiery is that it’s a type of lingerie that you can also use for fashion purposes. Items like fishnet tights or thigh high stockings can be paired with dresses and skirts to add a fun detail to your ensemble. And should you decide to reveal more, your sexy hosiery will pair perfectly with your lingerie.
“I love a good high-waist; they bring me back to Christy Turlington days,” says Christina Viviani, cofounder of the Great Eros. Viviani notes that despite its comfort factor, sometimes high-waisted underwear can be unflattering. Marieyat’s thongs are no such thing, though: “The aesthetic is beautiful, and the cuts are really flattering and unconventional,” Viviani says of the brand. “In my store in Williamsburg, we also sell a style called the Canova ’90s Overt cut like a ’90s bikini with an overt, in a fine Italian sporty mesh, that makes a woman look long.”
A bra can make or break an outfit. While you want a bra that will enhance your look, that doesn't mean that it can't still be cute. The key when shopping for bras is to look for lingerie that requires minimal effort but maximizes the effect. Comfortable black lingerie like a matching black lace panty and bra set, for example, can be worn under your little black dress. Not only is the lingerie cute and comfy, but it also serves double duty by not showing through the black fabric of your dress. It can also be worn under other dark colors without fear it will show through the material.
When we talked to model, actress, and entrepreneur Amber Rose about the things she can’t live without, she told us a story about going underwear shopping: “So my friend Chyna, we were at Neiman’s the other day, and I was picking out some La Perla underwear,” said Rose. “They were like $120, and Chyna is like, ‘What the hell are you doing? Why are you buying such expensive underwear?’ And I was like, ‘Girl this is going to change your life,’ so I bought her a pair.” If you’re on the fence about splurging on pair of underwear, Rose makes a compelling case for doing so. “I know this sounds crazy, but wearing expensive underwear under your clothes gives you a certain type of confidence in a really cool way.”
The history of pantyhose, as for stockings, is tied to that of changes in styles of women's hemlines. Before the 1920s, it was generally expected that women would cover their legs in public, including their ankles; and dress and skirt hemlines were generally to the ground. The main exceptions were in sports and entertainment. In the 1920s, fashionable hemlines for women began to rise, exposing the legs to just below the knees. Stockings also came into vogue to maintain leg coverage, as well as some level of warmth. The most popular stockings were sheer hosiery which were first made of silk or rayon (then known as "artificial silk"), and after 1940 of nylon, which had been invented by DuPont in 1938. During the 1940s and 1950s, stage and film producers would sew stockings to the briefs of their actresses and dancers, as testified to by singer-actress-dancer Ann Miller. These garments were seen in popular motion pictures such as Daddy Long Legs.
