I’ve never worn thigh highs (and rarely wear tights and hosiery), but was interested in trying Kix’ies Thigh Highs after being introduced to the brand and meeting it’s founder, Samantha DeMartini. Kix’ies seemed to be a high-quality product, but I also loved that it had a philanthropic mission (read more about it here).
Recently, I received a pair of the Dana Lynn thigh highs from Kix’ies, and was happy to find that these thigh highs resolve all the issues that usually keep me from wearing hosiery and tights. First of all, since they are only worn on your legs, there is nothing that will constrict your stomach or waist (perfect for warmer weather!). Also, they are pretty durable, so they’re not as likely to tear or run like traditional hosiery. Even if they do, you could just buy an extra set and replace one leg at a time instead of scrapping the whole pair. If you do need some shaping and smoothing control for your stomach/waist area you can add your favorite Spanx (or similar undergarment), rather than be stuck with a control top that’s specific to a particular pair of tights/hosiery. Most importantly, they stay up!
The signature striped elastic band that keeps the Kix’ies Thigh Highs up is covered up for my outfit in this post. Reveal it for a more flirty and edgy look.
The weather this Spring has been erratic here in New York and pretty much the entire east coast!. The last couple of days have been warm, but most of last week and the weeks before were cooler than usual. I’m excited to add Kix’ies Thigh Highs as another option to my wardrobe for those in-between-season days when I may want or need to wear a skirt, but not quite ready to be bare-legged!
