And one more thing. I have a neurological problem in my lower legs and given consideration into getting a pair of pantyhose to relieve the pain.

Um...what? You really should have that checked out. You must fall ill often. What a blatant example of social conditioning.

I've never understood the difference in terms of comfort and convenience between tights vs. nylons--I loathe LOATHE them both. Both feel like a punishment for being female to me. Anything that fragile and restrictive is diametric to convenience and comfort. However, attitudes like yours are why I feel compelled to do "something" about my legs if they are to be exposed--whether it is to wear hosiery, pants, or self-tanner. I know I shouldn't concern myself with such shallowness, but I'm more comfortable and confident knowing that no one is repulsed my bare legs.

Why don't you do try putting on a pair of tights/nylons and judge for yourself.

Natural? And everything else we wear is???? Colored and/or patterned tights are "natural?" It's also ironic that you mention "natural" after admitting to your revulsion to someone's "natural" legs and skin color.

Again, I say, um...what????

But, in all seriousness, I'm unfamiliar with which lower extremity neurological symptoms can be relieved with pantyhose. Are you referring to compression hose? These are typically used to relieve the discomfort and swelling of venous insufficiency, but I am unaware of their use in any other situation. In any event, I hope you find relief.

I really hope that I was the one who made you so violently ill. Men like you deserve to spend their time nauseous.

If you need compression stockings, go for it. If you need some pantyhose for your personal wanking, you're on the wrong site.

I actually think pantyhose can be sexy, if the right shade. I can't wear them in the Summer. It's so hot here the only way I can get them off is in the shower.

I think it all depends on you. Just dress respectfully. Skirts or dresses should be just above the knee at the shortest. No stilettos. Dress modestly.

I've always found pantyhose or tights uncomfortable, I danced for many years and tights were a must! I get my pantyhose from Walgreens in nude with the control top. They are usually cheap so I don't care if they run.

I usually wear pantyhose because I get cold so easily and I never know about the temperature. Plus when I get cold, my legs get red and the hose help with that.

A funeral is not the time to worry about being fashion forward. Dress respectfully and modestly in nice clothes that make you feel comfortable. Pay your respects to the deceased that is what is important.
