Default Does anyone wear panty hose anymore?

I was at an important formal business conference yesterday and noticed some women chose to have bare legs. The CEO made a comment to my DH that he thought it non professional, so he noticed too.
I thought that was odd, but it kept DH from saying another word about my $53 pair Wolford's Tummy Control purchase.

I think it depends on the time of year and the event. I was at an outdoor casual summer wedding on a very hot afternoon. I wore a long summery skirt and top and sandals with no pantyhose. Had it been a winter wedding, I would not have been bare legged. A professional event probably requires panty hose but younger women might disagree.

I work with a number of women who don't wear pantyhose, either....its bare legs. No way would I do that - #1, my legs are so white it would be blinding, and #2, its unprofessional to me. But then, I'm a lot older than most at my work. They all look nice, though, and are dressed nicely - so its my age showing!

Same here. White legs, age and all.

I do not like to wear panty hose at all. I find them to be incredibly uncomfortable.

I will have bare legs are work tomorrow.

Here is Southern California panty hose are definitely optional. I used to think it was unprofessional, but then times they are a changin'. I could not wear dress shoes without nylons but try to wear slacks or very long dresses when necessary.
