Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!
I had a lady contact me today asking for details on the hipster pantyhose we have. In particular, she was interested in how low the waistband goes so that she could wear it with her skirt without the pantyhose showing above the skirt waistband. I took pictures of three low-rise styles we have for her: Clara, Yuppie, and Argento. I figured some of the readers may find this information useful and decided to post the pictures and measurements here. The color of all three styles shown on the pictures is Playa. So, if you are on the fence about how “nude” this color is, you may find these pictures useful as well.
Let’s start with the beautiful Argento. This is the only one of the three styles that has a different back and front. Also, this is the only style with a measurement of a little over 8 inches from the waistband to the middle of the gusset. I also noticed the Trasparenze logo on one side – a very nice touch.
And here is the back of the panty (kind of a thong, with less pattern and more sheerness):
The scalloped edging and the floral pattern will add a luxury feel – a very nice change from a plain sheer pantyhose. This style, however, will provide the least low rise on the hips.
The next is Yuppie – the pantyhose that is purposefully made to be worn on the hips. The waistband in this style is really wide to keep the pantyhose on hips without sliding down – 3.5 inches. There is a very little distance between the waistband and the gusset. Have a look:
There is no lace or anything like that, just a very serious waistband. You could effortlessly pair Yuppie with low-rise jeans and skirts. The distance between the top of the waistband and the middle of the gusset is 7 inches.
And the last low-rise or hipster style pantyhose is Clara. Clara has the same distance as Yuppie between the top of the waistband and the gusset but they can be worn either on the waist or on the hips. Definitely a plus.
This style is also made to be least visible under clothes as you can see from the smooth appearance of the waistband and a barely visible reinforcement along the seam.
We hope this information will help you choose the hipster style that best suits your needs.
UPDATE (11/2012): We have extended our range of hipster/low-rise pantyhose and tights and created a separate category for easier browsing. Yuppie and Argento have been discontinued by Trasparenze but there are other similar items to choose from.
