FURRY-TYPE



agilon pantyhose where the nylon filaments look hairy. The hair disapears when stretched onto the leg.

gusset

a panel built into the crotch where you would normaly find the cotton in a pair of cotton crotch hose. sometimes, as in the case of these gorgeous vintage Philippe Matignon pantyhose, the gusset is nylon. (yes the hose are for sale: they're not on my site. They're $12.00, available in size small, white with vertical stripes only.

panty top of brief



I hate to use the word brief because there's nothing brief about a panty top on a pair of vintage pantyhose. It is heavier than the leg unless the pantyhose are sheer to waist. (see the picture of the pressed pantyhose below for a glimpse of sheer to waist).
pressed


The term pressed is generaly used more in conjunction with stockings: they are pressed in a heat press to make them look good on the card. (the stamps on stocking welts were applied with heat as well). Pressed stockings look a hell of alot better than crush-strerch stockings but are generally baggier. They have a tendancy not to cling to the leg as well.

old-school sandal toe

We all know what a sandal toe is, but here's a funky one: a crush-stretch pantyhose with a flat-knit sandal toe. An incredible difference between the two textures, and incredibly sexy.

Ultra sheer



ultra sheers tend to feel more brittle than regular nylons. they hide nothing: blemishes and all will show through these. They look great at night and can definitely be inappropriate for work which is all the more reason to wear them to work.
