I have to agree... it is really too bad that women don't like wearing them that much. I have to admit, when I see a women wearing pantyhose or stockings, it's an instant turn-on. Almost to the point where it's difficult to stop looking. Well-tanned or toned legs look good in general, but stockings just bring it to a whole new level.
I hear from women generally they like thigh-high stockings better instead, just because they're softer, less restrictive when they go to the bathroom, and if they get a run in one of them, they don't have to throw both of them out. From a health standpoint, pantyhose don't really allow a woman to breathe downstairs, so it can also be a nuisance from being more prone to yeast infections, stuff like that. Not to mention the other things like being itchy and wanting to scratch their legs to death too, especially a couple days after shaving.
How do I know all this? My fiance told me, and I actually listened because she has awesome legs, but she has a lot of the hangups with pantyhose... she likes wearing thigh-high stockings instead when she wears skirts and heels out somewhere. It's cool by me, because as she put it, it helps to have a little "easier access" at the end of the night, if you know what I mean.
