Top 5 Pantyhose Rules (Male to Female Transformation Tips)


What could be more feminine than a pair of silky smooth pantyhose?

I get a ton of questions about this topic, so let’s talk PANTYHOSE.

As you’ve probably noticed, not many women wear pantyhose these days. But that doesn’t mean YOU can’t wear them.

The secret is to choose hose that make you look sexy and stylish – not like you stepped out of a time warp from the 80’s.

Follow these 5 pantyhose rules and I guarantee you can’t go wrong:

Rule #1: Only wear nude or black pantyhose


Stick to the basics when it comes to hosiery and only wear nude or black pantyhose. (Colored tights are a different story. See Rule #5.)  crossdresser

If you wear black hose, make sure that they’re jet black – not gray-black or brown-black.

Rule #2: Go for sheer nude hose that matches your skin tone


The #1 rule for nude hose is to match your skin tone as closely as possible. Don’t even think about “suntan” pantyhose unless that’s your actual skin tone!crossdressing

The #2 rule for nude hose is to buy the sheerest hosiery you can find. Nude pantyhose should be like the foundation you wear on your face: invisible, but enhancing.

High-end hose brands (like Donna Karan and Calvin Klein) offer lots of nude shades to choose from, so you should be able to find a perfect match.

Rule #3: Buy the best quality hose you can afford.


Most crossdressers and transgender women have great legs, so it pays to show them off with good pantyhose. There’s a big difference between drug store brands and department store brands.sissy

My favorite high quality hosiery brands include:

  • Wolford
  • Spanx
  • Donna Karan
  • Calvin Klein
  • Nordstrom

Rule #4: Coordinate your hose with your shoes.


If you wear black pantyhose, wear black shoes for the most streamlined look.

Nude hose gives you the most options: You can pair them with any color of shoes. For the most leg-lengthening look, try wearing nude hose with nude shoes.transgender

Just remember: NO pantyhose with sandals or open toed shoes! (A small peep toe is fine.)

Rule #5: Try tights


Tights are a great alternative to pantyhose – especially when it’s cold out. (A P.S. to the U.K. ladies who call pantyhose and tights the same thing: In the U.S. tights are made of thicker material.)Travesti

Tights are less formal, but they tend to look more modern and youthful than pantyhose.

The pantyhose rules DON’T apply to tights, so experiment with different colors, styles, and textures. Funky tights can totally make an outfit!
