Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens...

One of my favorite things are L'eggs Sheer Energy Pantyhose. Many of you dear readers will wonder why I have pantyhose in my list of favorite things. Let me answer your wonderings by saying that it is only out of necessity that I love these pantyhose. I am required to wear hose to work, which is typically 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. I have been working under these requirements for 6 years, so you can see why I would grow to have a favorite hose.

Now, let me tell you why Sheer Energy is my favorite. It is inexpensive, durable, silky smooth, forgiving when my legs aren't entirely silky smooth, and keep everything all neat in a squeezed little package.

By far, my most favorite feature of these hose is that they are durable. I typically will get 5-6 wears from one pair, if I don't do anything excessively clumsy. If you consider that I have 7 or 8 pair at any one time, you can see that getting 5-6 wears is a wonderful thing.

You can buy more expensive brands at department stores, however these do not typically last long. They are loosely woven, which translates to easy to run and snag, which is such a shame when you've just spent $10 on a pair that you only get to wear once.

The only thing L'eggs doesn't do for me are specialty hose, such as toeless, patterned, fishnet or back seam. For specialty hose I rely on Hue brand. Also durable, though not as inexpensive as L'Eggs.

At around $3.44 a pair, L'eggs Sheer Energy is my favorite. Thank you L'eggs!


  1. I am sorry that you have to have a favorite hose. I swore off almost all tight, nylon, uncomfortable legwear when I left Utah for the last time.

  2. So applicable to my life! Thanks! :)

  3. Kristina, I am laughing so hard!! What a funny blog entry.

    I haven't seen or spoken to you in a while. When can we get together and do some visiting?? Also, I told Ivan that we are having our 2nd annual pulled-pork sandwich potluck after the parade on the 24th. Hope you can make it...

  4. Oh, this was posted by Kristina. That changes things.

  5. Just so you know, you have sold me on those hose. I'm all about cheap that sounds bad, ha ha


Tell me something good.
