Nice for a trial run!

If I already had leg tattoos, I would not buy these, but for the curious, or for someone who wants a tattoo, but is worried about the look, these pantyhose are the perfect way to test it out. I had so much fun with these pantyhose. It is not likely I'll be found laying on my side having a tattoo done, but with these pantyhose, who needs pain? Well...that's another review!!

extremely useful review
When you receive these pantyhose you will notice non-traditional pantyhose in a traditional pack. They are placed on a pink/white striped insert in a plastic bag. An inserted card has a picture of a model wearing the pantyhose. A size chart states that these should fit women who weigh 90 to 160#s. I never understand these one "size fits most" pantyhose and I would love to meet the people who determine these parameters. Would a tall anorexic woman and a short, chunky woman both wear these pantyhose and still be comfortable? Do most women really weigh in the 90 to 160# range? I don't think so, given that (according to several sites on the web) the average dress size today is a 14 and the weight is 162.5. The average woman, in my opinion, should fall in the middle of a one size fits most, so that term appears to be misleading and not very helpful. Lucky for me, I weigh 147# and I am 5'3" tall.

The pantyhose are just about the sheerest I have ever had. The color is really a barely their beige--it would probably be called "nude" by most companies. The "panty" part of the "pantyhose" is darker and much heavier than the legs. The package lists the material as 85% nylon and 15% spandex and I would bet that the bulk of the spandex is in the panty portion.

Did you ask how these fit? Glad you asked. For me, these fit great. I was careful to place both feet in and then shimmy the legs, 1 at a time, up to the top of my thighs. When I got the legs in place (and adjusted the tattoo so it looked natural) I pulled the panty in place. I have (what I describe as) short, but shapely, legs. About 6" above the knee my thigh measures 22". The length from the top of my kneecap to the crotch is 16". In bare feet, 13" from the floor, my calf measures 14". I had plenty of "stocking" left when I pulled up the panty.

Straight out of the package, the panty (which is heavier and less sheer than the stocking) measures about 7.5" (vertical) by 9" (horizontal). I am not sure if all these measurements help because as you stretch in one direction, the other direction gives up some room. Have you ever noticed that if you gain 5 or 10 pounds that your pants are suddenly shorter? To accomodate your growing ass (OK--my growing ass) the space for it has to come from someplace so you lose some length. Anyway, it may be more helpful to know that I had plenty of stretch left and still had no saggy knees, ankles or falling panties. The tattoo straight out of the pack, measures about 8" by 3". Again, depending on the size and shape of your calf, it will stretch differently on you. I was able to play with the placement of the tattoo but found it tough to change the size/shape of it without it looking wrong, just wrong.

The nylon/spandex blend, in both the sheer stocking and heavier panty, is soft and smooth to touch, but like any pantyhose, it will catch, run and snag if you are not careful. I have had pantyhose that never made it to work because they ran while I was putting them on. I did not have that experience with these but I can not say what your experience will be. Where I live, it is getting cold (40's) but I think these are so light that they will be comfortable, and probably look cuter with lighter clothing, in the warmer months. I have worn these only 2X and after the 1st wearing (which was about 4 hours to visit a friend's family for Thanksgiving) I filled the bathroom sink with warm water and some "Woolite" (a trademark product by the way--don't want to get in trouble!). I swished them around and gave a little more attention to the crotch area (for cleanliness and health concerns) but pretty much left the stocking part alone (except for the feet) but again, gentle--gentle is the key phrase when cleaning. I did the same after the 2nd wearing.

Did I hear someone ask about the color and design of the tattoo? The basic design is a yellow anchor, with a red heart at the top and bottom (larger at the top). In the middle, a rope winds its way down the anchor. A ribbon under the top heart has the word, "AHOY" printed in the center. At the top of the upper heart flames shoot out. The bottom heart has 7 very small yellow stars shooting out. The main colors are red and yellow with a touch of white and blue.
Experience
There is a narrow band of elastic at the waist of these pantyhose. It was not binding and it is really too narrow to roll when you sit or move around. As with most pantyhose, there is not cotton panty liner and it would be awkward to add one of those stick on liners. If you will be wearing them for an extended period, which, given the style, is very likely, I suggest wearing your regular pantys under the pantyhose. It may never happen to you or me, but a cotton crotch is recommended to prevent against those nasty vaginal infections we are prone to getting.

I do not have any tattoos and the only piercing I have is 1 hole in each earlobe. When my family and friends saw me in these, they were shocked and could not believe I had a tattoo. Everyone wanted a closer look. Only 2 people were suspicious. I confessed, but to the person seeing you in the grocery store, it would look natural and not draw any attention, except from fans of tattoos. A few people asked me about the significance of the design and where I had it done. Not wanting to mislead people I didn't know I told them about the pantyhose and EdenFantasy.com, which is more information than I gave my friends. To my friends, I mumbled something about a kiosk at the mall--they are always changing kiosks so it won't seem odd if they can't find them for sale. Hey, if anyone expresses real interest, I'll shell out a few bucks and buy these for them.

EF recommends that spandex never be boiled or bleached, which seems like common sense, particularly with the bright colors of the tattoo.
Follow-up commentary
I still wear the same pair of tattoo pantyhose and still have fun with them. The panty part has "pilled" a little and the tat has faded a bit, but all in all I would buy these again in a New York minute! I think they have run their course as a "joke", because now everyone knows about the fake tattoo. I would still buy another pair just for the fun.

    You did such an amazing job with this. I think stocking reviews are by far the hardest ones to write and you did it wonderfully. You picked a hard subject for your first two reviews and did great jobs on both. I can't wait to see what you do with easier subjects!

    Fantastic review and excellent mentoring! I really like that you shared how you handled requests of "where you got your tattoo done"... these seem like a pretty neat set of stockings.
  • arewehavingfun?
    I like your description. These sound really cute. I may get them today while still 20% off.
