    No you don’t. Pantyhose is really an older generation thing. I do not see it as necessary.

    Pantyhose are pretty dated. Skip them for sure!

    I had tea length and didn’t wear pantyhose. Also, if you do wear nylon pantyhose they can contribute to that burning sore feet feeling under the balls of your feet when wearing heels.

    I’m 50 and I don’t wear them. Do they even still sell pantyhose?

    I don’t think it is necessary to wear pantyhose. I got married outside in August – none of my bridesmaids wore pantyhose. I didn’t wear any when I was a bridesmaid last year. I also don’t think anyone would notice if you did – and more importantly, if you didn’t. 


    That said, it honestly may have been more comfortable if I had worn some because I did not like the feeling of tulle against my legs for 12 hours. Also, you could find cute thigh high/garter belt situations other than old school nude hose.

    I mean…maybe if we were still in the 50s it would be necessary?? But certainly not now!

    Why would she think you’d have to wear pantyhose? Especially in summer time? I would not wear them.

    I must be in the minority. Raised baptist can’t imagine not wearing pantyhose. Even in sweltering summer. Ignore me and do what is comfortable

    hollynicole14:  I got married this June during the hottest week of the month wearing an ankle-length sheath dress and STILL wore pantyhouse haha. And I’m 22. I know it’s a dated thing, but they added that extra bit of confidence for me (tucked everything in….and in the heat, it was nice to not have my thighs rubbing together and chaffing). I’ve always worn pantyhose for special occasions, but my adventuring as a child led to so many little scars all over my legs, and as a tall girl with long legs, all my little scars stand out a lot (to me).  Also, I changed into a knee-length getaway dress after the reception and kept my pantyhose on. But I took them off in the car later haha.

    you don’t HAVE to do anything. Yes they still make pantyhose, really cute tights and everything in between. They can help suck everything in, make your legs look better and help avoid blisters on your feet. That being said, do whatever makes you happy!!

    I’m wearing a tea length dress next sunday (!!!!) And I’m not wearing panty hose, hadn’t even considered it actually. I did think about Spanx for a second but decided to just go with regular comfy undies, nothing fancy. I’ll save that for later 😉
