  • Pantyhose make legs look nicer. I personally prefer ladies that wear pantyhose and they always catch my attention over the ladies going bare legged. Most likely, it is a personal preference on the man's part.
  • More likely you have great legs. But pantyhose are not as good as thigh highs. I think pantyhose should be made illegal. :-)
  • Men are turned on by most things that are soft, shiny, and see-through. Additionally, they cover up imperfections to make legs look sleeker.
  • Personally, I prefer bare legs. I love to see the bare flesh as opposed to stockings. I think it looks fake that way. Do not get me wrong, it is pleasing to the eye in some cases, but call me a purist....keep them bare under a dress or skirt.
  • My boyfriend loves pantyhose. He definitely prefers pantyhose to bare legs or stockings and suspenders (I think they are called garterbelts in the US). He is quite kinky though.
  • If they are colored, it's probably because the color drays attention compared to bare leg. If it's just a nude hose, they might give your leg a nice definition and sheen and draw attention that way. Maybe you have nice legs and get checked out equally, but only notice when you wear hose because you feel a little self concious?
  • Many pantyhose have an added sheen or shimmer that highlights the curves in the legs, especially if you also happen to be wearing high heels, which accentuate the length of the leg.
  • for one, you are likely wearing a skirt or dress if you wear pantyhouse, and that seems to make more men look in my experience. i notice when women wear pantyhouse more for one, because it is kind of unusual these days (at least here), but also i'll notice if they are an odd color. if they are a skin tone, then i try and guess whether or not the person's skin is even close to that color... i know not why.
  • Maybe they want to touch them. I know I do - I love the feel of nylon stretched over skin, silky and smooth :o) It's hard not to touch my own legs when I wear stuff like that.
  • the look, the look, the look! - need I say more?
  • Sheer pantyhose, as long as they are a quality type feel and look really great. every guy i know is crazy for girls wearing pantyhose. not just the look, but they always want or try to feel. good pantyhose are made to feel and look great so of course. every man i have asked personally (i mean not in front of others) have all said that they really do like girls in pantyhose. it's very feminine too.
  • i just think it draws attention. No matter what. Little boys like pulling them with their fingers like its skin thats about to snap, and men like taking them off.
  • Let me put it this way. My boss/immediate superior has nice legs, but when she wears pantyhose she has great legs. Its amazingly hard not to stare- and she is 51(over 15 years older than me). I am sure she notices, but I cant help myself from looking-they are that good. Most men have a thing for pantyhose. For me, I associate them with my superior, so in a way they represent sex appeal, great legs, and power- a difficult combo to resist.
  • I tend to notice that my legs look slimmer and my skin looks very even. I guess that's the appeal. It's so horrible to put it on, though. I am notorious for running pantyhose.
  • I'll answer for myself. I find bare legs to be SOooo boring, and the majority of women don't wear pantyhose anymore. The Blue Jean and Sneakers look was old in the 1990's... why should men even pay attention to that look anymore?... and why do you think that we should? It is sloppy looking and totally unattractive. Women are more attractive dressed femininely. Feminity is a valuable asset... not something to be hidden. I like the sleekness of well shaved and pantyhosed legs. Coffee, Suntan, and all shades of Beige are are so boring and unimaginable. Blues, Blacks, and Whites catch my attention, but not nearly as much as the colorfull tights. Any woman who is looking to attract a man might want to try a skirt, pantyhose or tights, and at least some low heels.
  • As a Pantyhose website I saw one time said: Gone are the dark days of summer; Back are the flawless legs of fall! Not to coin a phrase but "Nothing beats a great pair of Leggs!"
  • yes and because women in pantyhose are sexy , i even wear them myself!!
  • Smooth silky skin or something approximating it.
  • Either would suit me ;)
  • Pantyhose!!! The bare legged look has gone too far. If it's not 85 degrees slip into a pair ladies. Bare legs in winter is silly!!!!
  • the pantyhose legs have one secret and element that bare do not - is the person with the legs actually wearing stockings, suspenders, basque and all the rest of it - however small the possibility is, it is like a bloody magnet.
  • Pantyhose (or hose, in general) add a shading that you don't see with bare legs. Apparently, you have good-lookin' gams, and the hose simply enhance that feature! ;-)
  • I totally agree with Delwin's answer...100%.I love showing my feminity.I rarely wea rpants anymore.Maybe forwhen it is needed...bad weather,etc.Otherwise,it is the feminine look for me!
  • In this time of year pantyhose are a must for me. I think they look wonderful on and give a little warmyh to me. Men love pretty legs and its just a feminine thing they like about all woman. I wear them everyday, in the summer bare is fine..
  • Hose are pretty; they present a very classy look. As a previous answerer posted a lady wearing hose will usually be dressed nicely and that is just a supper turn on for me personally.
  • I wear pantyhose myself, and I'm a male. I am also straight and no I do not have homsexual tendancies and neither am I "hiding in the closet." I love women and ONLY women and would love to have a companion that shares this fetish of mine. I often feel ashamed and guilty for having these desires, but they've been with me since my youth and as much as I've tried to shake it, I have not been successful. For me it is not for warmth. It is for the look and for the sexual gratification I get from it. Women are different from men. Women see it as a functional piece of clothing. Men see it is a sex-enhancer. That's the reason they were invented, so EVERYBODY needs to stop living in denial and smokescreening the issue with comments like, "They enhance the curves of the leg and keep the legs warm in winter." That's a bunch of BS. Males get off from it, a women know this and wear them for that reason. In the office, the ONLY thing that gives women power is the fact that they know that every man in there will be STARING at their nylon-clad legs and the men can't do a damn thing about this except to stare without getting caught. The power I'm talking about is the power to have sex in "the back room" with whatever man she so chooses because she knows that she is driving all the men crazy with her short skirt, hose, and heels. This, and this only (with the exception of her job title), is her POWER!
  • Are your pantyhose clown yellow?
  • It is the whole allure that it makes your legs beautiful yet unnaccessible. The make them shiny and men like shiny objects, just kidding it smoothes out imperfections. What more could a guy want a lady dressed nice and nice looking legs that is why.
  • Oh my, pantyhose with a shine in any color make legs look like candy, the kind you could suck on for a day-it's unimaginable what life would be like without women in pantyhose - I hope they come back in style as in the 80's and those fashion critics that pan them are completely clueless. Ever wonder why the tv show Dukes of Hazzard played for many seasons (wasn't the writing I'm sure)or why Hooters is so popular? Women don't have to go to that extreeme, even a little nylon showing goes a long way. And yes men love the look and feel of quality hose - it's why some men resort to wearing them themselves - maybe they don't get them at home.
  • "Advantages of pantyhose On mildly or moderately cold days, pantyhose help keep the legs warm for those wearing skirts or dresses. Above all, pantyhose hides blemishes, bruises, scars on the legs, leg hair stubble, and varicose veins. On cold dry days, pantyhose can help prevent the legs from becoming too dry. Some companies regard wearing skirts or shorts without pantyhose as unprofessional and thus require people who wear skirts or shorts to work to also wear pantyhose or sheer tights (UK). Dark pantyhose, and black pantyhose in particular, can create the illusion of slimmer legs. Another flip side depends on the wearer's skin tone - dark hose shows runs when worn over light skin, whilst lighter hose show water spots flipped up from the heel after walking in the rain. Whilst, as detailed below, the material is not absorbent, it is quick drying (for example after walking in the rain/being puddle splashed and soaked by a car. Support hosiery can be worn to support the leg. Regulating blood circulation in the legs, it helps those who work on their feet with preventing/helping varicose veins and resolving pain in the back and legs."

  • Probably for the same reason that many more women look at my legs when I wear pantyhose: they look great, and they catch your eye.
  • Men love the look of hose vs. bare legs. No matter how nice your legs are, hose make them 10X better.
  • Most guys I know would rather see a lady in a dress or skirt. Pantsuits and slacks make a lady look older and more frumpy. And most times her legs will look best in sheer hose, unless she has very nice skin, has a nice tan, has no blemishes, keeps them shaven, and applies a skin oil to give them a slight shine - then she will look better without hose. Since that is a lot of trouble, the hose can take care of all those problems very quickly. (except maybe the shaving) Hose with a garter belt would be less constricting than pantyhose, which seems to have a harder time staying in place, and would be cooler in the summer. And most guys find hose and garters very sexy! I think most ladies hate hose because the manufacturers make them too constricting - too much spandex. A little spandex is necessary to keep them from bagging, but not near the amount they put into them is needed, unless they are support hose for those who need them. And the waist bands are way too small, they cut into a womans figure, even if she has no body fat - and they show through her clothes similar to panty lines. A garter belt can be properly sized without being too tight, and for some reason, the garters do not seem to show through clothes as much as a tight waist band, probably because a dress or skirt is not as close fitting where the garter clips are positioned. Stayup hose are another option, but not as sexy to men as a garter, and probably not going to be as comfortable for you either, as the gartered tops will probably be quite tight, constricting the legs, which can be very annoying. They may also tend to slip down when you are active - very annoying. If you feel you need the control that a control top pantyhose provides, consider an open bottom girdle with suspenders. Girdles can be purchased that are very light these days, and I would bet you would be more comfortable in that than the control top pantyhose - and if you're on a date, you will drive him wild!! I know, it seems old fashioned, but the hose and girdles are not what they used to be, they are much more modern, and seem less frumpy than control top pantyhose. And if you select the girdle correctly, you will not have that tight waistband line you'll get from the pantyhose. And more cost effective - get a run in your control top pantyhose, the whole thing goes in the trash. Girdles are fairly durable, and if a stocking gets a run, just combine with other matching pairs. And guys - if you want your lady to dress up for you, then you have to dress up for her as well. If you show up for a date looking very hansome in a nice suit, I guarantee you, if she was going to go casual, she will change that as soon as she sees you!
  • I certainly am, they just give a better looking shape and look sexier
  • It speaks for itself that panthose look way better than bare legs.
  • As for WHITE pantyhose, they're better worn at 17 than the other way round.
  • I myself are more interested in THE FORMER - white ones if possible. Having said that, white tights are better worn at 18 than the other way round.
  • Ladies should wear pantyhose. It does wonders to their legs. They beautify the legs, put an even coloiur on the legs and adds a shine on them, making them look smooth and slender. Pantyhose also helps prevent leg fatigue/aches, which could lead to vericose veins and other vein-related conditions. As a man, I love ladies in pantyhose with tight pencil skirts and high heels. They look absolutely attractive. I wear pantyhose daily to help blood circulation and to relief lef fatigue.
  • Well if more men look at your leggs when you are wearing pantyhose that should be a clue to you that they look better at which BTW pantyhosed legs look way better than bare legs.
  • Why do you think that girls at Hooters wear them? I'm convinced more men look at Hooters' girls glossy, shiny legs and asses more than they do their actual "hooters." I've found that sometimes the difference for me getting sexually aroused looking at woman or not, is pantyhose. I've been aroused by women who were older, more plain looking even heavy or overweight and found them instantly attractive because they had pantyhose on. That's what having such an intense fetish will do to you, though.
  • Not me. I LOVE the bare leg look year round even when it is cold out. I don't think women are lazy. If you have the legs show them off even if they are a little pale. Keep it bare.
  • I feel most guys prefer women in PH/stocking as it kind of show of the femininity....
  • I LOVE THE LOOK OF A WOMAN'S LEGS IN HOSE. MY FAVORITE COLOR IS NUDE. WOMEN WHO WEAR HOSE SEEM TO BE MORE SENSUAL TO ME AND I ALSO LOVE THE TOUCH OF SILKY HOSE AS I RUN MY HANDS OR FINGERS OVER A WOMAN'S HOSED LEGS.
  • I find womens leghs in hose much sexier then without... Nice hose, shiny once does it all for me..... But I always hear that women hates to wear them ??? How come they can not notice all the attention it gives them, and why does it be that all men ( most ) realy like the way they dresses at Hooter`s ??? I am just sad we have no Hotter`s here in Norway..... /RRL
  • because you look good
  • Pantyhose? Yes without a doubt! Very few (1%) look good enough to pull off bare legs. Sorry all of you that fool yourself into believing otherwise. Thigh highs usually look even better.....
  • Women who wear pantyhose have a finishing touch on and exude elegance. Men are more attracted to a woman who shows confidence and elegance. I have had this attraction to women wearing pantyhose since i was a young teen and still do to this day. I prefer the sheer pantyhose not those fishnets. Beige tan nude and black are the colors of choice and eye appealing. Thanks girls it is always a pleasure to see you wearing hose.
  • Women wearing pantyhose, to me show confidence and they add a finishing touch to a classy woman. When i see a woman wearing pantyhose a huge smile is on the inside, my eyes light up also. I find a woman who wears pantyhose more sexy, than a woman who is not. Beige, tan, nude and black are my favs to see a woman wear. Thanks Gals.
  • Men like the look of hosiey on women. It finishes the look of the outfit, like icing on a cake. Bare legs is nasty, and not for nothing, lazy. It's like a guy wearing a suit without a tie. Or god forbid sweatpants and flip-flops.... The epitomy of laziness. Don't follow what the "fashion gurus" say or what the skanks on S.I.T.C wear and how they dress. Hosiery will get you the attention all women adore, plus you'll look hotter than even the hottest girls in the joint.
  • Bare tan leggs are sexy. If they are white then wear hose
  • They look sexy on ladies. I love the shiny highlights running down a woman's legs and creating a star effect right on her heel if she is slipping her nyloned feet out of her heels. Very alluring. The slippery feel and silkiness on her legs and ass is priceless. It's a guarantee that my wife gets a foot and leg massage after work when she has them on. I am less inclined, by far, to do that on bare legs. That little crotch comes out with scissors, by the way. It's a slippery encounter after that. She would be less happy about hose if they didn't fit right. Order quality. Cecelia de rafael(incredibly slippery and shiny}. falke, wolfords (expensive, but lasting}. Here are a couple sites. shapings dot com. or http://www.shapings.com and http://www.strumpfvitrine.com/ . My wife gets her stuff there. Her legs never looked better.
  • Because there is no way for a woman to dress more sexy or sensual than with wearing pantyhose. Whether it a short skirt and blouse, pantyhose and high heels, or a below the knee dress, hose and flats. nothing from wearing a man suit to being naked is as alluring as a woman in hose!!!
  • a woman who is dressed mite turn me on by just getting naked and standing there verses a woman who is naked and stands there. we will lok only because you have them on and our curiosity strikes us to look and imagin...
  • I also find a womens leg in hose a lot sexier than bare legs. The stockings whether they be pantyhose or stockings add a touch of finish to the leg and even out the coloring and hide blemishes. Colors can be nice also to compliment clothing and leg types.
  • i always thought that men look at legs reguardless. are they plain pantyhose or do they have a design on them? i like the ones that have designs and patterns on them, i need to get a few pairs! ;)
  • Pantyhose give the legs a tanned appearance, so men are more likely to look, because our society prizes tanned skin.
  • Because women who wear pantyhose have CLASS, unlike most of the other lose TROLLOPS who RUN AROUND these days. Who would want one of those SLUTS? Pantyhose add an unrivaled FINISHING TOUCH that ALL WOMEN should aspire to have. GOOD FOR YOU to wear pantyhose -- it shows that you have CONFIDENCE, CLASS, and a GREAT SENSE OF TASTE.
  • I wear tights everyday , I love them and when I'm out with friends I get more attention in tights than they do bare legged, men find them sensual , sheen , glossy are the most exciting for men , keep wearing them 😃
  • You notice the ones who look because you want to believe this. In reality it is a personal fetish. I think the latest surveys prove men are more interested in a pretty face than boobs even! But bless your hear if your legs are all you have worth looking at.
