The Return of The Bodysuit!

Sadly I remember the original bodysuits as a teenager.  I would wear my high waisted DKNY jeans with a black or white long sleeved turtle neck topped off with a mass of curly ‘cork screwed’ hair.  That was the pinnacle of early nineties fashion.

bodysuit4bodysuit7   bodysuit9

Bodysuits in the 90’s were like a toddlers ‘onesie’, like a leotard or one piece swimwear with awkward, practically impossible to reach, snap fasteners under the crotch.  The press studs were annoying and also uncomfortable and if the body suit didn’t fit correctly it was forever giving a wedgy, revealing ‘hip skin’ or ‘popping’ undone.

Sometimes all three happened!  The horror!

Attempt to sit down……………Reveal hip skin, feel the wedgy…………….‘pop’!!!!

Even worse, however, was that I was forever forgetting to snap the fasteners back into back place after a visit to the powder room.

‘Tail’ watching was a regular event in the early 90’s.  And, it wasn’t a good look!

By the mid 1990’s the belly button piercing craze had hit town and everyone decided to reveal their jewelled navels and abandon these poor misunderstood body suits to the back of the wardrobe.

And so to 2014, thankfully bodysuits have moved on from those early creations and today they are an excellent wardrobe staple.  The closures are not directly under the crotch and advanced fabrications and tailored cuts mean that the body suit can offer smooth lines, support and, in some cases that extra bum lift.

Here’s Leighton Meester rocking a lace body with bra underneath and some other examples of modern day bodies.

Look out for some new body suits being offered by The Hosiery Queen in 2014.

I can guarantee that the fit will be right but you’ll still have to remember to fasten them!

The ‘tail’ will never be fashionable!

If I Could Turn Back Time!

cher

How about a bit of Cher seeing as it is International Fleet Review in Sydney this weekend.  The 1989 song “If I Could Turn Back Time” was filmed on battleship USS Missouri while it was stationed at the former Long Beach Naval Shipyard.  Cher’s outfit was a black fishnet body stocking under a revealing one-piece bathing suit.

I can’t say I’ll be wearing anything like that this weekend but with over 20 war ships in Sydney Harbour I’m sure someone will.

Understanding Hosiery Deniers. A Simple Guide.

I am ashamed to admit that deniers have always confused me, which, seeing as I have worked in textiles all my life is a bit embarrassing to fess up to.

It all just seems so confusing….

w2-pantyhose-083112

Technically, the denier concept was initially applied to natural fibres, such as silk and cotton, but over time this has included synthetic fibres, such as rayon and nylon. A denier is a measurement that is used to identify the fibre thickness of individual threads or filaments used in the creation of cloth. One denier means that 9,000m of yarn weighs one gram. This means that denier relates to the weight (i.e. thickness) of the yarn.

Here’s a picture of a denier balance that is used in textile labs around the world:

denier

Got it?

No….me neither!

In simple terms, the lower the denier, the sheerer and more fragile the hosiery is. The higher the denier the more opaque (less see through) and thicker the hosiery becomes. As with most things, however, there are exceptions. To bewilder the hosiery buyer even more there are now certain ‘up market’ hosiery brands that appear sheerer than their denier, so they offer sheerness and strength!

Anyway, here’s The Hosiery Queens basics to deniers:

  • Ultra-Sheers are usually less than 10 denier and will smooth out blemishes for the ultimate bare leg look. Ultra-Sheers are ideal in hot weather and for glamorous evening translucency. You can also wear Ultra-Sheers with strappy sandals as most have sheer toes. Ultra-Sheers are also terribly fragile and easily snagged, so keep the clear nail polish handy!

  • Sheers are the mainstream classic hosiery at 10 to 20 denier.  Sheers are slightly thicker than the Ultra-Sheer. With Sheers it will be obvious you are wearing hosiery and they are ideal for everyday wear. Sheers are a little more durable than its more fragile sister and are also less likely to snag.

  • Semi-Opaques are stronger than Sheers at around 21 to 40 denier. Semi-Opaques are not yet Opaque but they are more durable than Sheers.  You can also still see the skin through the texture.

  • Opaques are from 40 denier up and can also be referred to as ‘tights’ because of their solid structure and full coverage. Opaques are great for the  start of winter and colour blocking.

  • Thick Opaques will be around 70 to 99 denier. These are the heavier, longer lasting members of the hosiery family and are also ideal for winter.

Finally, the big daddy of hosiery is the:

  • Mega Thick Opaque at 100 Denier Plus.  These are great alternatives to leggings and woolly tights and are absolutely perfect for bitterly cold winters.

I hope this little insight into the hosiery family helps. As you can see understanding the different deniers, and the names associated with them, is invaluable.  Differing weights and thicknesses will affect style, comfort, warmth, and appearance.
