I wear stockings. Yes, with a garter belt. I wore panty hose for years but in my mid 40s, I rediscovered stockings...
Here's a few reasons why stockings are better and more frugal than pantyhose:

1) If you get a run in your pantyhose, they are ruined. No, I won't do that silly thing of cutting off one leg and wearing two *panty* parts, each with one good leg. Ridiculous!

2) High quality stockings are less expensive than high quality pantyhose. I frequently find never opened packages of stockings...even silk one!...at thrift stores for as little as 50 cents!

3) Ever tried to wriggle out of a pair of pantyhose when you have to go to the bathroom right away? 'Nuff said.

4) A stocking with a run in it can be used in all the ways that I have seen mentioned for pantyhose...replacing a belt on the car, tying up gourds and such, etc.

5)Stockings last longer. Seriously, they do. I hand wash mine and hang them to dry. I have stockings that have lasted me 6 months+. I have never had a pair of pantyhose last me that long!

6) Stockings and a garter belt are just dead sexy. I have never heard a man do that quick intake of breath when he caught a glimpse of where the hose meets with the panty part. I have heard many a man make that sound when they caught a glimpse of the top of a stocking attached to the garter.;)

7) Stockings are just easier to deal with, in the long run. You can quickly change looks (I have different colors and textures of stockings).

8) Ladies, you will feel more feminine in stockings. Really. You walk differently, carry yourself differently. I, personally, feel a bit more powerful...maybe that's not the right word?...but I feel more self-confident and ready to take on the world when I am wearing stockings than I ever did in pantyhose!

9) There is nothing, I do mean NOTHING, more delightfully, wickedly sensual than your fella sliding his hand up across your stocking and brushing his fingers against bare skin. While that may not come into frugality or survivalism, it may help repopulate the planet if TEOTWAWKI occurs!:D:

Thanks for the tips Lamb, I almost always wear dresses and skirts commando style, garters sound like a more comfortable way to do so. (at least in the summer ;) )

Actually, you're 100% correct.

If one wears a skirt or dress too short so one can see the garter line while walking about then it would most definitely scream "80's hooker" on some level or another.

Practice makes perfect in that regard, especially if you have a special girl (or guy depending on your preference,) to model for and get a "second opinion" from. :thumb:

These two positives outweigh any negatives, imho.

This post is worthless without pics!:D:
I'd be happy to oblige, but I don't think I have any pics of me wearing stockings. Or anything else. I only have nude pics, sorry!

Nude has it's appeal.... funny you should bring up the topic. A friend recently gave me a 1000 page picture book on the history of women's "lingerie" in the last 250 years or so. (Quit your snickering.) It was full of great art and ad ideas. I looked it over then gave it to a friend who is a marketing genius.

Clearly lingerie was a sexual medium from the very beginning and folks 200 years ago was just as venal as they are now. (I still remember vividly the underall commercial of the young woman walking away and answering why when asked why she wore underalls [or what brand it was] She stopped walking, bent down and back and said 'cause it looks like I ain't wearing nothin' at all." I would have married her...five times...That body is still burn in my memory and as warm today as decades ago.

Anyway, the book went up until about 2005 and it left me wondering if garters and stockings were even still made... not that I look good in them...

Send me what you've got, I'll have to use my imagination to add in the stockings. :)

IMO stockings are more frugal than pantyhose. They always seem to last longer for me... seemed like better quality or something-maybe just less wrestling to get them on or off?

I also agree with Malaz that socks would be more frugal than either.
