I know what you're thinking: you have got to be kidding me, right? Well, no, I’m not kidding you. Even though I am aware that the very thought of spray-on pantyhose conjures grainy black and white memories of a footage from the 50-60s, when women resorted to such trickery to mimic nylons, I need to tell you that there are spray-on nylons available out there in a modern form today too. Where can you pick up such spray-on tights to experiment with? Apparently, in some of the hosiery shops. What advantages do these things carry over regular nylon hose? They don’t run…yep…that’s about it.
Now then, if the reason behind your pantyhose-wearing ways is image consciousness, these pantyhose sprays may help. Just don’t expect them to mimic intricately patterned pantyhose because they won’t. Applied in a sufficiently professional manner though, they will provide a nice cover for your legs. Choosing the right shade is as important as it is with actual nylons. We have heard complaints about spray-on tights which didn’t make any sort of difference once they were on the wearer’s legs. I suppose as with everything else, it all comes down to quality with air stockings too.
Despite the fact that some women will find these extremely cumbersome and messy, there are certain advantages to them. When applied properly, they supposedly cover up varicose veins nicely, giving the leg that uniform color and sheen that regular pantyhose do. Because spray-on nylons are like foundation, they come with sun protection too, the SPF of which can be as high as 25.
One has to be careful immediately after application as the freshly applied air stockings will wear off on clothes. It takes them about 3 minutes to dry, after which they will become water and sweat-proof and they will not make a mess of the wearer’s clothes either.
A can of these spray-on pantyhose costs around $30 (cost will differ from one brand to another though), and contains enough material for about 20 applications.
According to some, once dried, the air stockings do not wash off easily, which means they can wear them to the pool in the summer. Now, that doesn’t really make any sense to me for several reasons. First of all, why would anyone want to wear anything akin to pantyhose at the pool? What does that look like? Like wearing tights under your bathing suit for swimming?
Secondly: I find it difficult to believe that the spray-on nylons don’t wash off if you actually go into the pool and swim around for a while. How on earth do you wash them off when you want to get rid of them then?
The bottom line: sure, get these spray-on wonders and experiment with them if you so wish. Some folks love them so they must work to a certain extent. As far as we here at pantyhose-pantyhose.com are concerned though, we’ll stick with regular nylons thank you very much…
