What’s Under Your Dress?

Sheertex12

Now most people would answer that questions “None of your business!”  But that was the answer before I was introduced to Sheertex.  Now I am excited to share what’s under my dress.

Let me start with a confession, I have to admit, I hate pantyhose. I always have. It seems as if the moment you take them out of the package they rip. Or they rip at the most inopportune time, when you’re at an event and you feel the rip spreading from one end of your leg to the other. Even worse they split in the crotch and you feel the rip going down both legs simultaneously as if they are racing to see who will make the most embarrassing trail down your leg.  It has just never been a good experience.

When you come of age, for most women pantyhose and slips become a right of passage.  I hate them both.  Slips always seemed unnecessary and pantyhose always seemed like a punishment for something I had done in a past life.  If that was my rite of passage into womanhood, I wanted no parts of it.  None. Nada. Zilch

Further as a brown curvy woman it is always hard to determine the correct size and if by chance I found the correct brand that fit, chances are the colors did not match my skin tone or complexion. It was a frustrating, and honestly most browns or nudes of coffees where not my nudes, my browns of my coffee.

So I stopped wearing panty hose. Chances are if you saw me at a formal event or even at church my legs were bare. Unless it was winter because I live in Chicago and I know better. But then my leg covering of choice was tights or calf length Shapeware that could fit into tall boots and masquerade as pantyhose. I had it all figured out.  I will admit that there were some winter days that I have gone bare legged instead of pantyhose, if my only option was to wear pantyhose I choose nothing at all.

Then enters Sheertex. A pantyhose unlike any other. A pantyhose that may be worth its weight in gold and price because I have been unable to create a rip tear, puncture or anything in the pair I have. And the color is a pretty good match to my skin tone as well. Sheertex is comfortable, easy to put on, and did I mention that I have not been able to create a rip, tear or puncture in my pair?

I was sent a pair to try, thanks Sheertex 🙂 and I was sent a sample of the material the hose are made from and they encourage you to try to create a rip a tear and puncture.  I have created rips, tears and punctures in other shapewear I have owned, but so far not in Sheertex.

Sheertex came at the right time.  Winter in Chicago.  I now have a pair of pantyhose that provide me the firmness of shapeware while at the same time the feel and comfort of pantyhose.  Sheertex for me is a game changer.  I also believe that the cost is worth it because I believe that these will last me forever.

I am happy that I was able to try Sheertex and I would definitely recommend them to pantyhose phobic people like myself who had just given up on pantyhose altogether.  I am planning to purchase a pair in black as well in order to have more that one pair in my wardrobe rotation.  The all day comfort is something that you don’t always find with other brands of shapewear and that you definitely don’t find with pantyhose.  I am thankful that Sheertex is here!

Dream In Black with AT&T

For me Black History does not take place only during the month of February.  As an African American, I celebrate my history and my culture everyday.  It is often difficult to see why so few fail to recognize the enormous contributions that African Americans have made to each and every part of our current lives, from the fields of science, medicine, engineering, politics and entertainment.   That is why when you see corporations and companies that take time to not only recognize but invest in the greatness of African Americans you acknowledge their efforts.

I am happy to share that AT&T is one of those entities.  AT&T has been celebrating African Americans throughout the year as well, if it is not the work they are doing to improve communities of color, it is through campaigns such as their #DREAMINBLACK campaign which launched on February 1.
