…why nylons are still a thing.
It’s finally warm enough to put away my tights for the summer, but I do feel kind of uncomfortable having completely bare legs at work since all the other teachers wear nylons. So I pull on the nylons that I bought last night, careful with my nails, rolling them down to the toe like you’re taught, and they still manage to get a run all the way from my ankle to my knee within the first ten minutes of leaving the house.
From experience, I can conclude that it is physically impossible to wear nylons more than three times without getting a run and having to throw them away. Even buying “nicer” brands (aka more expensive brands) doesn’t make them last any longer.
Since when is it acceptable for a non-disposable product to break within three times of using it?? You would think that a completely defective product would have figured itself out by now (it’s been decades since women started wearing these things regularly. Come on.) Is it because women are still (often) expected to wear nylons, and therefore they have to buy them even if they are somehow engineered to break the first time you put them on?
Am I totally crazy and just somehow doing it wrong, or do all of you have this problem too?
