Glossy pantyhose is one of those things that can take your legs from drab to fab. If you want to look sexy for a guy or just want your legs to
look great for an evening night out then you should slip on a pair of high gloss tights!

Now if you're wondering how those cocktail waitresses (.. and cheerleaders!) at your local bar keep their legs look lustrous then you've stumbled upon their secret.
This page will provide you with fashion tips on how to buy and wear a pair of glossy tights, plus recommendations on the best high shine and gloss hosiery brands.
|| A pair of glossy pantyhose can keep your legs from looking washed out - the shine keeps your legs looking supple and blemish-free.
They're similar to light-diffusing makeup
concealer which can make your legs look flawless.
Several guy friends have told me that they find women wearing pantyhose the sexiest. I even caught them eyeing pantyhosed women and exclaiming how sexy they looked. Yeah, they sound like a pig but they're great, decent guys! I also found out that straight women reacted
in a similar but discreet and envious way ;-)
How to Wear Glossy Pantyhose
They look the best worn at night
They look best in a low-light areas because if it's too bright it'll just look completely silly
like you're in circus show.
You might even get some stares from people who are trying to figure out if you forgot to take them off after a night out partying. Well,
that's what I would've reacted if I saw woman with shiny tights in broad daylight ;-)

Glossy legs belong to evening and night wear.
If you want your legs to look shiny during the day, try ultra sheer hosiery instead. They're shiny and almost as good as the glossy ones, but without the sparkle.
Keep your outfit simple
If you're wearing a pair of super high-gloss tights try keeping the rest of your outfit at a minimum. Too many accessories
are only begging for a fight with the pantyhose. It's just too much. You can for example wear a simple beige dress with a pair of simple fashion hoop earrings.
Just avoid adding too much drama to your ensemble.
