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!

5 Things I Discovered in 2019

2019-discoveries.jpeg

Here are 5 things I discovered in 2019 that I did not know I needed in my life, but will always be a part of my life from now on.  This blog post is not sponsored.  This is simply some items that I discovered in 2020 that are now a part of my life.  May you find some comfort and joy in these items just as I did.

  1.  Starbucks Bantam Bagels. I am mad at all of my friends who knew about these but never shared. A bite sized bagel pre-filled with cream cheese? Talk about breakfast on the go. A quick filling bite before work, before a meeting, before the morning hangry kicks in. These are so good and when they and warmed up they simply warm the heart. They are now a favorite on my Starbucks App.103920273-BL-0907-BAGELS
  2. Laundry Pods. Why didn’t anyone ever tell me about laundry Pods? I am completely infatuated. These make laundry so easy for me. When I head down to do laundry I can simply throw a few pods in my pocket and not have to worry about maneuvering my clothes as well as detergent. The pods make laundry day just a tad bit easier to navigate. Where have they been all my life? And if you are into savings Tide and Proctor & Gamble  and other companies are great for Sunday coupons for savings. No more lugging liquid detergent for me. Pods to the rescue! Laundry Pods
    3.  Starbucks Medicine Ball. Well this is not really a medicine ball or a medicine anything, however this immune boosting tea not only tastes great it gives you a little comfort that you are defending yourself from office, public transportation or any other cooties you may come in contact with. Starbucks4.  Instacart I keep saying that technology is making us lazier. From food delivery to now grocery delivery. I can even get delivery from Target. I should have never learned that I can sit on my couch order groceries in my pajamas and have someone deliver them to my door. I didn’t have to put on a bra or makeup or lotion. I just sat on the couch ordered my groceries and in a few hours they were there. No the biggest issue I have with this is that I don’t get to browse the aisles and grab all the stuff I don’t need or won’t eat. Is that really a bad thing. instacart-logo
    5.  Oreo Thins I grew up eating Oreos. And there is nothing like Oreos and a glass of ice cold milk. My mouth is watering just typing this. Recently I discovered Oreo thins. Less creamy middle and just enough to get all of the flavor of an Oreo without all the cookie and extra filling. I’m in love. Now if they would only make the red velvet in thins as well.oreo thins

These are just a few things that made my 2019 a lot better.  What things did you discover in 2019 that made life better for you?  Please share in the comments.
