Pantyhose Made from Same Material as Bullet Proof Vests are Simply a Godsend
No more rips and tears to ruin our days. A Company founded by women who are through with rips and tares develops pantyhose from the same material used in bulletproof vests. The world is officially a better place for us all.
There’s nothing more aggravating than getting a rip in your pantyhose. It starts out as a minor and unnoticeable tare. As the day goes on it slowly creeps up and down your leg. We slap these tight and uncomfortable things on to look elegant and classy. However, the thing with tights is that one false move and you’re a grungy rock-and-roll rebel. Just a tiny pull is all that’s needed to go from princess to peasant. Luckily, the pantyhose gods sent over their best work: pantyhose made out of the same material as bulletproof vests. What the human race did to deserve this is unknown, but it doesn’t matter. We’re simply grateful for it all.
Sheerly Genius is a new company with a mission. The inventors aim to change the way each of us thinks and feels about pantyhose. They want to rid us of the grief we feel when our dress is classy and our tights decide to tell a different story. Unlike most pantyhose, Sheerly Genius’s are made using fibers that are tough enough to resist any accidental runs. While we’re used to wearing pantyhose one or twice, if we’re lucky, these bad boys are good for about 50 wears. Velcro, diamond rings, and jagged nails don’t stand a chance against Sheer Genius Pantyhose. Contrary to the initial assumption we have about tough materials; the fitted material is also flexible enough to stretch without ripping.
Kathrine Homuth experienced a lifetime of frustrating rips and tears in her pantyhose. She used her anger as the force that pushed her to found Sheerly Genius. “After ripping one too many pairs of pantyhose, I wondered why in a world where cars could drive themselves and phones could pay your bills, there still wasn’t a pair of pantyhose that could make it through the day,” she confesses on the Sheerly Genius website.
Hague spent about a year doing research and development to craft these life-saving pantyhose made from bulletproof materials. She found it frustrating that women do not really have a choice when it comes to pantyhose. They play an essential part in women’s professional attire. “Pantyhose are a wardrobe essential for many professional women like waitresses, consultants, and flight attendants, who are required to wear pantyhose as part of their everyday wardrobe,” Hague writes. However, the pantyhose struggle is not only experienced by females, and Sheerly Genius knows that to be true. That’s why they created pantyhose for men as well.
