Hello to our fellow sample sale fans. We’ve kinda been stalking this legwear, socks, and hosiery sample sale from Leg Resource for a while, waiting in anticipation of its announcement, all throughout the month of November actually, and we almost gave up hope. Thank goodness we were not let down this year (we almost chalked it up as another reason 2016 was a horrible year), because the annual Leg Resource Sample Sale is officially happening, one week away. For those not yet familiar, Leg Resource is a leading manufacturer and brand marketer of all things legwear, from some of your favorite designer brands.

Frangi Pangi: Ultra-Sheer Pantyhose for Women of Every Color

As any woman of color will tell you, the available “nude colors” do not include options for darker skin tones. Thankfully there have been some great strides into adding all shades of nude into items women use every day. We’ve seen some makeup and footwear brands expanding their nude color ranges but there are still more products that can make use of this increase range of colors. One such product is hosiery, where the typical nude color on a woman of color is more than just laughable, it’s ridiculous; but thanks to the luxury brand, Frangi Pangi Hosiery, that will no longer be an issue.

Fringe Pangi Hosiery Fringe Pangi Colors

Frangi Pangi (named after the Hawaiian Lei flower whose petals bloom in a variety of colors) is a luxury hosiery brand that is like a concealer for your legs. This made in the USA brand of ultra-sheer pantyhose is designed for women of every color, by Jocelyn Maminta, herself a woman of color. Frangi Pangi Hosiery comes in 10 varied skin tones as well as an opaque black, with its legwear colors named after exotic fruits and spices, such as Lychee, Guava, Saffron, Sumatra, Arabica, etc, representing the variety of shades of women. Frangi Pangi boasts a “no-run” guarantee and features a comfortable control top, and sandal toe.

If that wasn’t enough of a reason for women to get excited about this hosiery brand, Frangi Pangi’s pantyhose sizes range from A through 2X or six feet tall and through 275 pounds (knee-highs and thigh-highs up to size 5X are coming soon). Jocelyn Maminta believes women of all colors should have quality hosiery meets their high expectations for fashion, comfort, color and convenience, without costing a fortune.

But wait, there’s still more to love from Frangi Pangi Hosiery! Profits from the sale of Frangi Pangi Ultra-Sheer pantyhose will support Caroline’s Room, a family foundation named in memory of Caroline Marie Doyens who was born too early and
lived for only two months, that provides a safe haven for more than 50,000 families a year who lose babies at birth from complications of premature birth.

NYFW the Shows: Hanes Hosiery at Bibhu Mohapatra Show

If we’ve learned anything from the long, chilly spring, tights, and basically all types of legwear, were essential. Obviously, Bibhu Mohapatra and Hanes Hosiery anticipate another cold Spring in 2016 because the legwear giant graced the legs of models at the Bibhu Mohapatra Spring 2016 Show during NYFW the Shows. These looks are just three of the runway looks which featured Hanes Hosiery at Bibhu Mohapatra Show. As you can see the tights are perfectly paired with Bibhu’s mix of elegant high-end day looks.

Hanes Hosiery at Bibhu Mohapatra Show

After seasons upon seasons of bare legs dominating the spring collection runway shows and red carpet appearances, legwear is finally getting a chance to shine during the slightly warmer season. Who better to make this debut than Hanes Hosiery, whose smoothing tights and pantyhose were incorporated into the runway show to create a timeless look.

Hanes Hosiery and Bibhu Mohapatra

“My spring collection is inspired by the Bauhaus movement and because of the bold and confident spirit of that woman, legs became an important part of the look,” says Mohapatra. “The Hanes Hosiery helps complete that look.”

Although the fall season is usually the season of legwear, if last spring was any indication, we expect to see many of these spring 2016 looks we saw paired with Hanes Hosiery. We already have our Hanes Black Out tights in reserve, we suggest you do the same. Now tell us ladies, what do you think of Hanes Hosiery at Bibhu Mohapatra Show? Will you be wearing tights with your spring looks this spring?
