I overheard the following conversation the other day.
Lady #1 “I like your stockings.” (Lady #2 was wearing a heavy lace pantyhose which reminded me of something from a Victoria’s Secret catalogue.)
Lady #2: Thanks. But they’re tights.
Lady #1: I like tights. I’m waiting for the weather to get cold enough to wear my tights. They’re much more comfortable than pantyhose.
I was left to ponder the difference between pantyhose and tights. My thought was they were virtually the same thing with the exception that tights would be a heavier fabric.
Am I wrong? How do you define the difference? And a bonus question: isn’t it hard to walk on that heavy lace?
