I have always wondered. Is it true that ONE purpose is that if the legs are not freshly shaven, it camouflages the hair?
1) They serve as a sheet between skin n shoes
2) They make the legs look better toned; because it is THAT what attracts our attention and we wonder how the legs look so good.

Well, you know, that's a great question, when I was a youngin... lol... I used to wear them nearly everyday as it makes your legs look nicer, even toned, gave it a nice shine.. dresses and skirts always felt and fitted better with stockings on. When I got to my thirties, I was out in the sun more living so close to the beach and running nearly everyday made my legs brown, when I put my garments on, I didn't really need the stockings as it was more of a natural look, although in winter I would wear the black thicker stockings to keep my legs warm under dresses and skirts. But no they do not hide the longer hair, if anything it makes it worse! mainly the natural coloured stockings but the black winter stockings did a great job covering the hair..:))2
