Uncomfortable Tights - A Leg Dilemma

As someone who is keen to keep up with all things ‘modern’ there is one thing that I constantly have trouble with. I endeavour to get on with tights but it is always an unsatisfactory experience. I just find they make me feel so constricted and are too tight around the waist. I’ve even resorted to cutting the waist band which looks a mess and doesn’t seem to make much difference to how I feel. From expensive to cheap and everything in-between, I’ve tried them all. Holdups are too risky and slip down my legs which is not a good look and the fear of them descending around my ankles at the most inappropriate moment is too much to contemplate.

As I love to wear longer skirts and dresses I do sometimes wear knee high socks (pop sox) but you do have to be careful that the tops don’t show as that doesn’t look good and is rather ugly. Plus the band at the top which sits below the knee can get uncomfortably tight after wearing for a period of time.

Of course perfect legs on a warm or hot day are lovely bare with a bit of bronzer, moisturiser or oil but many of us don’t have perfect pins or feel confident to put them on show. A sheer tight or stocking makes so much difference to cover blemishes, veins and age spots!

I have to admit I’m most happy in my old fashioned stockings (are they really old fashioned?) so they will continue to be my first choice. Comfortable and secure to wear all day long, with my faithful suspender (garter) belts that have been with me for many a year.

Where am I going wrong and am I the only one experiencing this? On the other hand there are benefits in not updating just because we think we ought to!

PIBE is a quarterly womenswear and menswear journal focused on fashion, beauty and art. For their Spring’s issue called Mentally Strong I did a feature called True Confidence which I thought I’d share with you (click on my website link in my profile). Working with photographer Iakavos and interviewed by Jessie Pink. Questions that came up are:- How resilient are you? Does this word strike a chord with you? How confident are you and would you say you have true confidence? Do let me know in the comments

Technology At 88
When I was a girl I could never have imagined the technology we have available at our fingertips today. If I wanted to know something I had to go to the Library and search through the reference books or ask someone knowledgeable – luckily for me my father was an academic and taught as a profession. He was always happy to answer my questions, explain things and fulfil my curiosity. Mostly answers weren’t instantly found like they are now. I wrote letters and waited expectantly for a reply which would hopefully come in a few days time. We sent holiday postcards and took photographs and sent the film away to be processed, again taking days of patience to see the results.

The day to day life of a model is easier with technology I must say – I don’t have to traipse around castings with a heavy portfolio as all my shots are online or on my iPad mini in my handbag along with my iPhone. I can receive bookings and updates from my Agent while I’m on the move.

Everything is so much easier you might think – but it’s ……. to continue reading go to the link in my profile or cut & paste:- http://www.daphneselfe.com/technology-at-88/
