Whaaaaat’s Up?

It has been oh so long since I have written. Why? I can’t really say. So many reasons, no real reason at all. Mainly it was the pandammit (pandemic). It really did take a lot away from many of us. Some people lost loved ones, some people lost their jobs, some people lost their sanity. The vast amount of uncertainty with the added stress of news reports, to vaccinate or not to vaccinate and everything in between. It has been exhausting.

Figuring out a new way of living and navigating daily life has been hard. Really hard. Wearing a mask everywhere you go. Not the phony half smile, pretend mask we used to wear, but now we are actually wearing masks. Everywhere. All day everyday. From the time we leave the confines of our homes until the time we return…masks. And to be honest being nervous if you forget to mask or being in the presence of someone without a mask. Life as we know it is just different. The more things change, well the more they are changing.

I was able to change jobs during the pandemic. Moving from working from home 100% to being in an office 99% of the time. In the midst of a pandammit. It appears that COVID is not going anywhere and we just have to figure out how to live with it. Kind of like a chronic recurring boil that never really healed and never really left. Just there waiting to come back at the most inconvenient time, whenever it wants to no matter what you think or feel.

So my absence wasn’t personal or neglectful. It was necessary. COIVD caused a mild depression to kick in. Then there was the stress of the old job, then the stress of changing jobs, then the stress of the new job. So much going on, while still learning and navigating the new normal and the new way of living.

All that to say that I am back. I have missed blogging, missed my audience, missed the interaction. There is so much to get caught up on and so much to share, so stay tuned.

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!
