WHAT DOES PANTIHOSE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Pantyhose

Pantyhose are sheer, close-fitting legwear, covering the wearer's body from the waist to the feet. Mostly considered to be a woman's and girl's garment, pantyhose appeared in the 1960s, and they provided a convenient alternative to stockings. Like stockings or knee highs, pantyhose are usually made of nylon, or of other fabrics blended with nylon. Pantyhose are designed to: ▪ be attractive in appearance ▪ ease the chafing between the foot and the footwear, or between the thighs ▪ keep the legs and feet warm ▪ hide physical imperfections such as blemishes, bruises, scars, hair, or varicose veins Besides being worn as fashion, in Western society pantyhose are sometimes worn by women when formal dress is required. For example, the dress code of some companies and schools require pantyhose or fashion tights to be worn when skirts or shorts are worn or as part of a uniform.
