Last night my daughter told me that panty hose are out of style and lo and behold in today's fashion hidelines the statement appeared as fact.

Thanks to "Sex and the City" and Vogue editor Anna Wintour, you're behind the times if you do wear them.

They have their advantages and disadvantages. One must consider that these very women who started this trend are ones who are picked up and dropped off right at the entrances of their destinations. No one is going to think I'm fashionable if I go sans hose in our climate. They'll simply look at me and think, "that woman must be freezing to death."

I think I'll keep my tights and panty hose except in the summer when you can get away with this. I'll risk being "behind the times."

Down here in Florida, pantyhose is definitely out of style. Even when my daughter got married in November last year, she went sans hose.

There's nothing worse than sweating through your pantyhose. Yuck!

And up here in Ottawa, you can't survive winter without longjohns! When I was working, I tried just wearing pantyhose (even under my slacks), but just about froze to death waiting at the busstop (at 6:30am and then again at 8pm that evening).

One can be very creative at getting away with wearing longjohns, even with a skirt (long boots and a long coat will hide anything...but then you always have to pray that you don't end up in the hospital emergency room for any reason!)

I used to have to wear ugly thick men's longjohns, until I discovered "CuddleDuds"...they have not only revolutionalized the way I survive cold winter weather (I can still wear tight-fitting slacks over them), but they even make me feel sexy while wearing them.

Well...I had never heard of "CuddleDuds" either so I googled... JC Penny's have them.

Look like they would have a lot less bulk.

I just did a Google search on these. JC Penney's has them among others, and they spell it Cuddl Duds. They sound really nice!! They are 100% cotton on the inside, with a thin layer of nylon on the outside, so they are silkier under your clothes!
Thanks, Eagle!

Sorry I wasn't here to answer the question. Thanks Brenda! I'm an avid Googler too, couldn't survive the Internet without it. These Cuddl Duds are So comfortable that I forget I have them on, until I don't, and then I freeze. I even wear them around the house under my slacks so we can keep the heat down. I have several pairs, a few white and a few black, thanks to my step-daughter who used to buy me a pair every Christmas. I also have a few of the long sleeve shirts to wear under my sweaters.

With the temps often hovering around -12 Celsius these days (I think that's about 9 Fahrenheit), one has to find ways to adapt, or hibernate, and even then those Cuddl Duds are indispensible!

Brenda, I think you should order a pair too...honestly, if you're shivering at all, you'll be so glad you have these to ward off the cold.

PS Brenda, I just checked the tag on my long johns and you're right, they're actually spelled Cuddl Duds...I never noticed that before. Talk about optical illusions...I always saw an "e" on the end of that word "Cuddl"!

Brenda, what would we do without you? You and Eagleheart always find the answers for us. I do have a JC Penney catalog. Thanks Brenda!

I could use these on my hiking journeys. I do have a few pairs of L.L. Bean flannel lined jeans but I was still cold yesterday hiking for miles in all that heavy wind.
