A bizarre trend has sparked from China, women are purchasing tights which make it appear that they haven’t shaved their legs in months, why you ask? Simply to hoard off unwanted attention from men peering at their legs.
J.Crew have a lace design (as pictured above) to give the hairy legs appearance but would you personally purchase a pair of these?.
It sounds like such a strange and unattractive product to own let alone wear….
Amy Jones modelled the tights in varies situations “I explain that they are tights intended to fend off men. Ollie, an engineer, makes a helpful suggestion: “Just wear trousers. You look weird.” (Full story on The Sun link)
Ollie makes a good point, why should women go to the extremes of purchasing hairy tights just to put off unwanted male attention? Just because a female has her legs on show does not mean that it is there for the purpose of men to look at her.
Why should women constantly have to maintain theirselves in order to be considered sexy? A lot of woman feel the need to shave regularly as it’s considered abnormal not to.
Would leg hair put you off and is this trend going to take off?
Personally I feel its a waste of money unless you intend to wear it for a Halloween costume. If you don’t mind the look of hairy legs then just throw away the razor instead of throwing money at a gimmick.
