The tights are practical, and very useful. You can wear them with many outfits and they make beautiful legs.
The problem with this fashion accessory : they are easily damaged, often ... all the time.
Did you know that ? Pantyhose would be deliberately less resistant to increase purchases. In 1940, the sale of very resistant nylon stockings, made the sales collapsed. The "formula" was changed and the pantyhose started laddering again. Thus, women spend about 150 euros ( C$ 169 ) a year for pantyhose that will ladder after a few days ... or the first day.
We end up getting tired of always having to buy new pantyhose !
And when they start laddering at work or at a meeting...this is really embarrasing !
