bare essentials of lingerie: hosiery
Today, pale is in and tan is out. Just ask Scarlet Johansen, Angelina Jolie and a host of other Hollywood starlets. While this is true, most of us don’t cherish the idea of scaring people with our pale, imperfect legs.

However, a good pair of stockings or pantyhose can shape the legs and minimize any skin flaws. Pantyhose and stockings are typically flesh-colored, so your skin is visible yet any imperfections are smoothed away by the nylons.

Some pairs of pantyhose have a control top, so they serve as shapewear and hosiery in one. Actually, the hosiery category includes pantyhose and stockings as well as socks and tights.

It’s a good idea to have several pairs of trouser socks or knee-highs as part of your bare essentials wardrobe. Tights are also handy when you want to wear a skirt or dress in colder weather.

This is not an exhaustive list, but these are the lingerie bare essentials you need to have. To read more comprehensive information on building a lingerie wardrobe, view the Lingerie Essentials guide.
