Why Would Men Want To Wear Hosiery?

There have been a lot of changes in the world of hosiery over the last several centuries. There was a time back in the 1400’s when it was the men that wore them predominately.

Dating back to his days as a professional football player, Bart Star said he wore pantyhose for warmth during games. Now, that might give some people pause, but pantyhose are one way that military personnel can protect themselves from pesky sand fleas."

Male population suffer from Varicose vein as much as women and support hosiery help to improve blood flow and massage your legs to help veins in pushing blood towards the heart. Even doctors prescribe support hosiery to people that suffer from swelling feet or fatigue legs, with no differentiation between men and women.

This is a comfortable way to stay nice and toasty no matter what the temperature drops to. And best of all hosiery is comfortable.

    Being a man, I do enjoy wearing pantyhose. But why does there need to be a difference between what women wear vs what a man should wear?
    I really enjoy the Caribe 8 Ultra from Glamour: http://hosieree.com/products/GlCaribe.html and the "St. Tropez" from Samburu: http://hosieree.com/products/SamStTropez.html

    Should there be a difference between women and men's pantyhose?

    When I was younger, I wore tights and a singlet leotard while studying ballet. Now, a number of years later, I find that a thinner, yet still opaque pair of tights, is the most comfortable garment I can wear under my jeans or even dress pants. And when it gets really cold, a pair of tights and a long sleeve leotard is absolutely wonderful to simply keep warm as well as provide support for tired muscles. I even wear them as pajamas. I hope the stigma of wearing such warm and supportive garments change soon. I wish more men would realize just how comfortable a good pair of hose is. There are now support groups on the web, as I have seen and I think this is great. What, do men have to wait another 400 years before it becomes fashionable again?

    Exactly. There seems to be a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" attitude amongst athletes about pantyhose. Baseball and Football players, among others, have been wearing them for years under their uniforms for warmth and support. I wrestled in college, and immediately after a match we would put them on after our showers and wear them under our clothes for a few hours to "warm down", preventing the muscles we just strained from going into shock. This really isn't big news, except that they are now breaking into the fashion front, and that is great. More guys can enjoy the benefits of hosiery!
