    Actually, it's sexy! With the skimpiness of the costumes it would be impossible to hide any stockings in there! 8)

    When I dance street latin, there is nothing more gross than the feel of sweating inside a pair of stockings. I wear knee-highs with my jazz shoes but never stockings, even with a dress...

    I do see a lot of professional latin dancers and amateur dancers wearing fishnet (nude) during competitions.......

    For one thing, I do BOTH ballroom and salsa, bachata, merengue. I'm an all-combo girl. :D :p Secondly, ballroom does include smooth dances over here, so I also do foxtrot, waltz and tango except for latin. And since hose is a no-no with open toe, my only choice is fishnet. :D :? :shock: Boy, am I gonna get comments...

    Why? Do fishnets have some negative connotation, where you are? If so, why not ask one of the more experienced dancers at your studio what they recommend. 8)

    There's actually a pretty lengthy discussion of the whole hose issue at another forum. Lots of tips and pointers. Hmm. I wonder if it's accessible. I'll see if I can find it, and PM you link. 8)

    Actually, it's quite common in Latin ballroom.

    Damn! That's $22.50 wasted. :wink: :lol: Yeah. I guess, if you wear a size zero, you can get away without needing to disguise your jiggly bits. :lol:

    Correction: it's quite common to skip hose in ballroom latin if you're TANNED. Once you're wearing five layers of self-tanner, hose would be excessive, but pasty legs do need a little something, even if you are a size 0, IMHO.
    That said...
    I'm not a size 0 and I do have pasty legs and I don't wear hose anyway. Hose annoys me, and if anyone doesn't like my pasty legs (or jiggly bits! :lol: ), they don't need to look at them! :twisted:

    I never wear pantyhose. It is so consuming and i feel as if I am beeing swallowed by fabric. Sweaty, tight and uncomfortable. No tights is sexier and cooler.
    What is the point of dancing in tights when you are uncomfortable??

    Not all tights are uncomfortable. Some are good for hiding jiggly bits, as pygmalion said. And some are pretty sexier than naked, pasty legs.

    And not all people are uncomfortable in hose. *shrug* To each her own. 8)

    Yeah...you know those black ones with the seam up the back of each leg? ;)

    I do know those. Very "Chicago" lookin'. :wink:

    My Mom swears by those. Of course, she grew up when only stockings (not pantyhose) existed, and I believe her first stockings were pre-seamless and pre-nylon (at least for public consumption.) Very sexy. A necessity for her generation, though.

    Then I suppose you'd know where I can find a pair? :D

    To dance in? Try dancestore.com -- they have the seam-backed pantyhose and also stockings, if you want a little more authentic look.

    If you're just looking for stockings to wear (which might be less sturdy than the dance variety,) my last pairs I got at Fredericks. But I've also found some at regular department (not discount) stores. 8) The seam back ones are more difficult to find, these days, but virtually any department store I got to has thigh-highs without seams. 8)

    Just checked. Fredericks has the stockings with or without back seams on their web site. Very sexy, IMO. :wink: 8)

    Indeed. Checked them too. Cool stuff. I'll check my local lingerie shop and see if they've got them.
