Warning: Girly Post!!

Don't say you haven't been warned......

Alright ladies....I need your help.

During my shopping spree on Saturday I stopped in at Victoria's Secret to pick up a few goodies....and my supply of pantyhose and stockings. Imagine my DISMAY when I discovered they will soon no longer be selling these. Not At All. Not in the stores. Not on-line.

This is not good for me...not one little bit. I've got really, really long legs. These are the only stockings and pantyhose that actually FIT me!

I cannot be walking around all day with the crotch of my panty hose down in the middle of my thighs. I've done that before - actually had the damn things come down farther than the hem of my skirt - and IT wasn't that short!! I will not wear stockings that look like really long knee socks.

SO.....now what the hell am I supposed to do? Does ANYONE know who, besides Victoria Secret, makes hosiery - quality hosiery - for tall woman?!?!

This could become a real problem!!

I can tell you who makes them for short women, but I don't think that is going to help you at all.

I do Hanes at the Bali outlets. There good because they make them short enough so I am not able to the pull the waist band over my head while wearing them.

Okay, Lady, try these out: DKNY Tall size hosiery, Jockey Tallsize, or Liz Claiborne pantyhose in Extra Tall.

I'll check to see if I can find them on-line and let you know.

Nothing wrong with stockings

But if stockings are knee-highs on her, that isn't going to help, oceanguy. Other than that, I'd second that comment. And stockings are good for us shorties. You can roll stockings.

Wow, Christina was a plethora of ideas. Being a shorty short, I didn't have an answer. I'm all about going hoseless lately... they're just so damn confining!!!

If you go back to stockings... does anyone else make them with that rubber stuff or only VS? I had a wardrobe malfunction with the stockings once. Blech.

Oh I wear the stockings now also - just not every single day...and if I could I'd got hoseless in a heartbeat. So far the only stockings I've found with the "band" has been VS.

Between the boobies and the stockings we're both seeing our fair share of wardrobe malufunctions! LOL ;-)

I've just about quit wearing them all together. Oh... did I say that out loud?
