Legwear forum? Worth it or waste of time?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

So after receiving several messages from users about the possibility of a legwear forum, a cleanly run one that isnt a bolt on of some marketing company, and is managed properly, I'm just dropping a quick question to see how many others would be interested?

Yep or Nope?

It doesn’t float my boat. But that’s just me.

I could go for it. It's an occasional thing for me so sure, why not.

What does legwear mean in this case?

Trousers, leggings, socks, legwarmers, and/or hosiery?

edit:  Apparently it means hosiery, tights, nylons, etc.  Tight lower body wear.

I agree...such items nicely compliment a great pair of heels or boots. And that they should be displayed tasteful because some items can be quite "revealing". 

Myself, I enjoy wearing leggings with many of my heels and boots.

I have indeed seen it, its horrible, hence my asking...  a nice, properly run, professional legwear community that doesnt look liek it fell off the back of the 1970's that has a long, and independant future, seperate of whatever the Delphi folks are doing. That was my thinking.

It also benefits in being able to keep the off-topic stuff that makes some folk here a bit "uncomfortable" shall we say..

Tech  :  I always wear hose with my heels. I am betting I have 500 pair of hose in storage boxes. Could always use more. Especially textured.

So with the leggings aspect, there is one main reason, and the decision to wait came after talking with a female friend who is aware of my heeling etc. While I have not posted any pictures or updates, I am in the middle of seriously trying to reshape my body. Since January 1, as all New Year's resolutions start, I am down 18 lbs and one pants size! My goal is 30 lbs and two pants sizes. I normally would wear a 12, am a tight 10, and hope to achieve some sort of an 8 when all is said and done. Because of this, even though they make stretch leggings, I want to be at my final goal/size before buying any more pants related items. I'm already a little bummed because a bunch of jeans and pants I recently bought off PoshMark are now starting to fit on the loose/too loose end and will inevitably be resold or donated.

So while nervousness plays a small part, the big part is my weight loss and reshaping!

Is "reshaping my body" a new phrase for just plain old "lose weight"?

Good for you!   That seems to be a hard thing to do even for me.   I really have to watch what I eat, well not watch it but cut back and cut out some things.   I have lost some weight but need to keep going.  Ideally I would like to get down A few pounds, like 10.    I have a ton of clothes in size 4 and 6 and want to keep it that way.   It’s not easy when I love to eat, good food and junk food,  wasn’t a problem when I was younger but it is now!!!!   Good luck on your quest I know it’s not easy.

As a non English native speaker,I would have thought that " reshaping my body "is: cut' out for the food plus sport. 

By the way,i don't think you can lose weight easily if you don't make some sport. With a reasonable body activity the food becomes less important and you don't lose your muscles. Swimming is the best. Not aggressive for the joints.

Yes. Swimming and cycling are both excellent - low impact sports that burn up calories, raise your metabolism rate and keep it elevated some time after you’ve finished exercising.

Tech,

I like the concept. Anything to keep up the dynamics of our forum. What I know of Delphi Forums is it seems to be a place where barflies gather to complain and gossip. One has to emerge from the sewer to enjoy any light which life has to offer. HappyinHeels
