My leetle lovelies, it has been a while since I've updated you with one of my crazy incidents. Of course I had the dental mess going on and still have to finish my root canal next month, but I'm out of pain finally! However, I really couldn't resist telling about my oh so lovely GYN visit today! This isn't exactly disgusting so don't worry.
So, my birthday is the 26th of this month and those darn yearly exams for women are awful for me. They have me a crazy mess for the day before I go in, the day of and sometimes a day later! They just bring up some nasty feelings from my past for some reason. I just feel violated! What I'm saying though, is whatever, I can get through that. While I have had some horrible exam experiences with different GYN's, my new lady is awesome, but she did make me have a nervous breakdown today.
I went in dreading it and already feeling a little bad, you know, past experiences! Traumatic! Before I go on though, am I the only one who has those "feelings" come up when it comes time for pap smears and pelvic exams? I've about drove myself crazy thinking that, well, that I'm crazy because of my linking being raped to pelvic exams. So I want to ask, am I the only girl who gets this? If not, maybe I'm not so weird.
So, those feelings were there and that really puts me on edge for a couple of days. I dread it every year, but just about every time, the pelvic exam goes OK and I don't feel like my Dr. actually violated me, but the feelings from being raped come up and I turn crazy. I even reserve that day every year for sleeping until the school bus runs. I get the exam, cancel anything, school, work, whatever and I sleep for a few hours and then I'm usually half way normal.
OK, I'm going to have to talk about more than I expected here. So my yearly visits have never consisted of rectal exams or even an HIV test! I've had to go elsewhere for that, but the nurses would tell patients they did test for HIV when they did not! Hence the reason, the staff is all new now! So I was surprised when my new lady mentioned the HIV tests and I told her that at least 80% of people my age since high school have never been tested, but think they have. She said she planned to change that and offer the test every visit. That's great and I did want to get tested again just to be sure. No, it was not positive! I'm good!
So I got my second dose of the HPV vaccine which brings me to another real problem. The GYN I was seeing the first time gave me my first HPV vaccine dose, but the second GYN that I was seeing for a few years never would give it to me! Today she also made sure I got that nice stab in the arm along with my usual injection for endometriosis help. There are some real flaws in these systems!
Then it was time for the exam which again brings me to ANOTHER real big problem. A few years ago my GYN found lumps in my breast and they stayed very sore, but the lumps would come and go. She wanted me to come back in every month to have them checked. Come to find out, I had never actually been FULLY tested for the breast exam! I spent months terrified a few years back when the GYN mentioned my lumps. I even cried one night! Then suddenly she never mentioned my lumps or told me a single thing about them and never tested me again after those few months of feeling them passed. Hmmm..
Today my new GYN asked me was I given the full exam which included feeling with your hands of the tissue, standing and doing all kinds of movements to check them as well as feeling the lymph nodes in my thighs, neck and underarms. Nope. The only exam I was ever given (for the past 8 damn years!) was when they GYN would feel my breasts with her hands. That's total shit if you ask me! Breast cancer can happen so young these days and I'm highly pissed that all of us in my area were not being properly tested.
Well the good news is my new, good GYN said that I'm safe. The lumps are only fibro.. something cysts. Fibrostic cysts, I think she said?
Then on to the pap exam. I spent an hour and a half naked while she could not find my cervix! I have a tilted cervix and she couldn't find it. She asked me if I had had a hysterectomy! I said "Nope. It's in there somewhere! I've seen it before!" I took pictures is how I've seen it. Before I gross you out though, I'll stop. The exam was awful because she couldn't find my cervix and had to bring in my injection lady! It actually turned out to be sort of funny and we were all able to laugh so that helped tremendously. Then the horror!
She said "We've started including rectal exams with the full annual exam." I turned my head because the tears and nervous breakdown had begun. I was about to put my clothes on and walk out. She said "What is wrong? Is something wrong? Oh my goodness! You were traumatized weren't you?"
I could not hold in my breakdown any longer. I was not anally traumatized... sort of. But I did mention why I had such issues with pap exams a minute ago. I can get past that though because I do work hard to keep informed myself with how things should work and with my own body. I work very hard on my health and even check my own darn cervix! (A camera, my partner and a speculum, incase you're wondering how the hell that's possible). OK, cervical cancer and HPV is so common even at my age (21) and there's no way I'm going to avoid something so crucial that can be stopped if caught early. Having a professional check is great, but I educate myself extensively to know exactly everything. They're not always careful and many times are careless about your health, I've experienced it so I want to do my own part.
OK, smash my breasts and jab, swab and have your face 3 inches away from my cooter in search of my little cervix, but hell no you will not ever put anything in my booty! No. No. No. So she did catch on that I was super nervous in general, but when she mentioned rectal exam, my rectal was outta there! She immediately started apologizing and didn't stop until I left. Poor thing. I told her that I was just upset before coming in since I tend to get emotional over those feelings that come up from the past. I didn't have to say no to her, she knew I couldn't go through it. Yes, exams are uncomfortable for all of us, but there's a difference in being uncomfortable and having yucky feelings brought up for a couple days and being totally traumatized all over again. I have no idea why the rectal thing bothers me more than the pap smear when I was violated in the cooter, not the rectum! Lol.
So she told me she'd never mention it again. She said she would write "refused" on my charts and move on. Thank you, Jesus.
See, a few years back, when I first started getting very ill and after being hospitalized for the very first time, I was referred to this total freak physician or something. I'm not for name calling, but y'all, this woman totally freaked me out! I was only a teen. Almost 16 years old and I went to this weird physician or whatever she was since the hospital referred me. She did ultra sounds and a pelvic exam and lots of asthma treatments and then acted very suspicious. She touched my booty without telling me and I flung myself off that darn table and said "WHAT do you think you are doing?!" I've never been so freaked. She kept chasing me with her hand as I backed away from her. This is for real too! She said "I'm just gonna put my finger right on your butt." I said "and then what?" I knew exactly what the damn creep was gonna do, but what was wrong was that she wasn't going to tell me about it? What kind of crap is that? So I refused and she told me I was not leaving her office until she did, that she would not let me leave! This was not a hospital, but some freaking office. Surely she had no right. Anyways, that left me really upset and still I can't stand the thought of it. I mean it tears me up! That could be one thing, but I'm not into anal. Thankfully, I felt better today when my new GYN said "Like my husband says, that's an exit only!" Ha. Ha. So it was nice to have her agree with my discomfort about it.
Now that I'm older and smarter, I should've really pushed getting something done about that doctor doing that. Maybe I'm crazy, but it feels like I was almost molested. :( Oh, well as long as nobody every goes near my behind, I'm happy. I'll suffer through a pelvic exam, but she said I was not at high risk at all for a rectal exam and I would be perfectly fine.
So, before I go on, do any of you feel like this? Men, I know some of you guys can relate! My grandmother was telling me a story about when my grandfather was still alive and the Dr. tried giving him a rectal exam and he totally flipped on them! Sounded just like what I went through. Lol. He's not with us anymore, but no, it is not because he refused a rectal exam!
Also, I'd like to hear from other rape survivors on this. Does anybody else in the world have freak-outs over these exams? I'm afraid I'm alone in this one! :)
Now, I hate to continue this already long read, but there's one more thing about my visit today that I cannot leave out. Believe me, you're lucky because I did leave out a lot! Ha Ha. I left out the part where I crammed my purse full of supplies as I was getting dressed! Hee Hee Hee! I'm telling you, a box of rubber gloves come in handy! Ha. Ha.
I'll make it short, promise. . .
While I was in the waiting room/lobby, I saw a stack dirty mags! Not actual porn, but this popular magazine is bad enough that even wal-mart had to pull it from the shelves! So I'm in the GYN office which is also an office with a pediatrician or something like that so there's the nasty mags on the table and in front of them, a play section for kids! Are you freaking kidding me? I flipped through, curious to see if they would actually have that kind of material.
Sure enough! Pages and pages littered and trashed with degrading, disgusting and plain out trashy photos! I ripped the first out, crammed it in my pocket to throw away. Flipped the page, more! I ripped and ripped until I was afraid I couldn't hold another piece of magazine paper in my pockets.
Then I remember my ol' trusty sharpie! I pulled that baby out and scribbled every last image out. Total black! No way you could see the trash through my scribbles. By this time I was light headed from 4 total minutes of sleep and the fumes! I flipped through all the mags to be sure nothing was left for some poor kid to stumble across or someone else who wouldn't like being forced to see it.
So, I accomplished getting rid of that trash, but I thought 'hmm... shouldn't these people know what's in these magazines so they don't put them out anymore?' And the activist or bitch or both came out in me and I found my little address book/calendar in my purse and ripped out a page. After writing "INAPPROPRIATE MATERIAL!!" in huge, thick black letts, I carefully sat it on top of the magazines. :) My work there was done. My good deed, done! It felt so good!
Knowing the people who run the place, they won't be putting out the magazine again, but I couldn't sit back and not do something. Thanks to the wonderful American Decency, I had the courage to do that. I might get fired up about someone trying to put something in my rear and then I cuss, but I'm a good girl!
You might think that what I did isn't enough to make a difference, but it is. This convenient station in my area was selling porn, real porn and it was right at the checkout! I wrote the owner a letter explaining how degrading, harmful and bad it was and that I wouldn't shop somewhere that I was forced to see that mess. I asked kindly that they put it away or in the back and guess what? I stopped in there 3 months ago for the first time and there hasn't been a single magazine or video that could resemble porn! :) I've actually become buddies with the owner now and we have a great time laughing when I go in! How awesome is that? And just incase you're the kind of person who's wanted badly to stand up against something, but was afraid... You won't regret it when you finally do, I promise! You truly can change things and there's no reward like it when you do. All it takes many times is a simple letter. Sign anonymously if you're uncomfortable, but never stand by and keep quiet!
Well, I'm offically done with my huge mixture of stories. I hope you are encouraged either to refuse anything be put in your rectum or to stand up for something you believe in. Either way, I'll love ya!
Much love and remember, I would love to hear from you, especially if you feel the need to tell me that I'm not the only freak with weird feelings towards something like a darn rectal or pap exam! :)

Excuse the horrendous nails! (I was practicing and testing colors lately and well, we have one ugly combination here! Lol)
What I was trying to show in the above picture was the actual product/serum. It's thin and serum-y, but not incredibly runny which is something I see a lot in serums. I'm really pleased with this texture. It's almost gel-like so it goes on really well without running off my hands. The thickness is like that of a thin gel.
I have to say, the Renewal Serum is the first ever serum I've used that didn't leave a tacky, shiny feel and look on my skin. I tend to avoid serums just for that reason, but I actually love the way the Renewal Serum goes on the skin... My lovie does too! (Shhh!)
I've been adding a bit of info to this review over the course of the past couple of weeks and now that I've had the chance to really use it and see results, I'm confident when I say that it's a must have product for those looking for these type of results.
The more I use the Renewal Serum, the more I love it. I've said so many times that I end up dreading even using a product after a couple of weeks because it kind of stops showing results. Recently I spent a lot of money on a tiny jar of cream/moisturizer for my face and I loved it during the first 6 days and then I started noticing that it would do crazy things like roll up in tiny balls and come right off my face! It was so weird because it never done those things the previous 6 days. Sadly, this is the case with a lot of skincare products. They work well when you first use them and then they get a mind of their own and rebel! I was a little tense this past week when I'd go to use the Renewal Serum. It done so wonderfully well for my skin that I would get nervous as I continued using it, afraid it'd stop producing results like everything else.
I'M more than happy to report that I've had no decrease in results while using Lady Soma's Renewal Serum daily for more than 15 days! As soon as I leave the shower, it's the first thing I use. I usually have my deodorant, makeup, vitamins and lotions lined up waiting for me when I get out of the shower and I always grab the Renewal Serum first, even before deodorant! It's actually a pleasure to use. My skin is almost always tight and a bit dry when I'm done showering and the minute I massage the Renewal Serum into my skin, things start to loosen up and look great. My pores look smaller every single time I use it and I've never used anything that has evened out my complexion like the Renewal Serum! I've used the BHA lotions and everything.
While I do add a drop of moisturizer to my nose before applying makeup, the serum gives the rest of my skin the perfect amount of hydration and not a bit of greasyness! This is definitely a product that's given me results that I've never encountered with other products and if you'll take a glance at a number of my posts, you'll see that I have tried it all!
I can't quite point out what it is about the Renewal Serum that makes everything look so darn perfect, but I can say that applying makeup is so much easier. I use a little foundation to give me some color since I'm anemic, it shows in my face. Before I used the Renewal Serum, I would have to scrub my face with my abrasive exfoliator daily and twice in a row! Then I'd smother on moisturizer, let it dry and mix my foundation with twice as much moisturizer. I'd apply that and go over it with a powder foundation then a bronzer, then a blush! Talk about cakin' it on! It was awful and honestly, needing to do so much to my face made me feel really bad. No matter what, it just looked bad to me. With all the dryness and uneven color and then makeup on top of it, I never was very pleased. Using the Renewal Serum really has made things so different for me. As bad as this sounds, I don't feel like I look awful without makeup anymore. I still like to add color, but there's never any really bad spots of discoloration (especially around my mouth!) or blemishes or really large pores.
This is a bit long, but I really wanted to go into detail about my personal experience using the Renewal Serum. I mentioned the discoloration around my mouth. About that, for some reason, the area around my entire mouth looked darker than my face. I hated that and couldn't get rid of it. Peroxide, lemon juice and even skin bleach didn't fix it. I'm not sure why it was there, but I really hated it and after about a week and a half, I noticed it wasn't dark around that area anymore! You guys might have even noticed the color in some of my blog photos before.
Anybody who struggles with discoloration or age spots, blemishes or dull skin will truly appreciate Lady Soma's Renewal Serum. I hope with all my heart that it continues to make my skin look so nice. Using it has saved me so much time that I normally spend fixing my face. Now, I slap on the mascara and serum and a little bronzer and I'll have an extra hour to do other things with my time. I love you Lady Soma!
Well, my lovelies, now that I've shared my little insecurities (and the fix for them!) I will leave you to check out the Lady Soma line yourself. If you happen to use Lady Soma, feel free to share your experiences with me too! I love hearing y'all's results too!

Oh yes, you're looking at the oh-so-adorable Skull Tights from Stocking Store.com! Remember my other posts with the tie dyed pink and purple leggings? Yes, those were from Stocking Store too!
I've actually looked for leggings with skulls on them for ages and haven't ever found them anywhere else. Imagine how excited I was to have my legs decorated with these babies when they arrived! In fact, I was so excited I had to wear them that day... on Valentines day! I originally planned to wear a pretty little black and white pinstriped babydoll with a big satin red ribbon around the waist, but when these came, I ditched the pretty little babydoll!
Since it was Valentines day, I wore these skull tights with a pink and black dress, but they are perfect with a blue jean skirt and heels! They can be worn with just about anything and they certainly add some spunk to a plain ol' dress or blue jean skirt. Solid colors really make these stand out like pairing them with a solid pink or black dress or with about any colored skirt. A white bandage skirt with these adorable things... oh yes! That would definitely make those little skulls pop right out.
These are not footless tights, but they go so well with a pair of heels! They're designed with white skull and crossbones while the panty hose are solid black. As you can kind of see in the photo, these are opaque and are more opaque than regular panty hose tend to be. They're also thicker and more durable. Thank God for these being durable because now that I have em', I don't think I could be without em'! Where your normal store-bought tights run easily and can't withstand a darn hang nail, these won't be snagged. They will run or tear if you don't properly care for them though, but they're going to hold up to a lot more wear than panty hose.
Another plus: they're warm and comfortable! I just love these.
To care for the Skull Tights, you'll be better off handwashing them. While I do think they'll do fine on a delicate cycle, I don't want to risk causing them unecessary wear. I wanna keep these babies around for as long as possible!
If you've been keeping up with me lately, you've probably seen a few posts on different leggings. Keep looking because I'll have more unique and fun hose to tell you about! All of course from the wonderful Stocking Store.com. If you haven't noticed, I adore those guys as much as I do their stockings! I'm telling you, they've got such a great collection to choose from. You've gotta check em' out! And if you're not into the crazy tights, you'll still find a really great selection of anything and everything hosiery! They carry lingerie and the like too. If you place an order with Stocking Store.com, feel free to share your own photos with me! I'd even be happy to post them on my blog if you want!

Despite the scary spikes, this is actually an amazing, relaxing back massager... that can also be used to massage... you guessed it! The clitoris! What else would you need a back massager for, right?
Well, in my case, I wanted the Rechargeable Infrared Massager for both uses. And if you happen to be a little shy about those pricklies, good thing the Massager comes with 3 interchangeable attachments, huh?
Let's check those out...
The 3 interchangeable attachments include a spiky one, one with two... prong like things and a smooth half oval shaped one. My favorite is the two pokeys because it gets deep into the muscles. Don't let the spikes and pokes scare you, they're actually soft and flexible. The spikes aren't enough to really penetrate deep into the muscles for me. They're awesome, but they bend before they'll really massage deeply, but the two pokes do wonderfull for body massages as well as clitoral massages! Those pokes are further apart than a rabbit vibrators ears, but they can work similar to a rabbit if you place the pokes on each side of the clitoris. That's a favorite way for me to use this!
You can also use one pokey on your clitoris for pin-point stimulation. Or you can place the two pokes on either side of your partner's spine and apply some pressure for a nice massage there!
The oval, smooth shape doesn't want to stay attached as well as the others. It's great for distributing the vibrations over a larger area like the vagina or back. It works wonderfully on the back too. I like the oval best for neck massages.
The spike attachment. Well, it really doesn't get used too often on me now that I think about it. My partner likes this one on his back though and if you can handle vibrations on your head, this one is perfect for a scalp massage!
You can see in the photo that without attaching any of the 3 attachments, you have two different sides on the Infrared Rechargeable Massager. You have the side with a tiny spikey roller that glides over your body wonderfully for a nice massage and works well on the neck/back. Then you have the flat, slick side. It looks black, but when turned on high, this is what turns on the infrared heating. However, I'm unable to feel much heat from it.
Now, about the massager itself. It's 11 1/2" long making it long enough to where you can reach your upper back yourself for times when you don't have a willing partner to help out. It's also great for clitoral use as well. However, it does do one more neat thing! It twists... see the photo...
You see? You can twist the handle making it easier to reach areas like your crotch. This thing is just awesome! I had considered getting a Hitachi, but I think I'm pretty satisfied with the Rechargeable Massager!
Oh, I almost forgot! Those grey ridges you see under the massager part and above the handle, those are little flexible ridges making this bendy so it's easier to use. It kind of has a pivet to it and makes massaging really unique!
To make it even better, the masssager is made of food grade material, it's phthalates and latex free and hypo-allergenic. It's safe to say that this massager is safe to use!
It's 3" wide and weighs 1.5 pounds making it easy to use without your hands or arms getting tired.
There's a slide button on the handle and you have off, low and high to choose from. Turn it on high and you have some very powerful and nice vibrations as well as the heat. Turn it on low and you have still some very powerful vibrations. I doubt these vibrations would equal Hitachi's from what I hear, but I can confidently say that most people will be happy with the power. It's the most powerful vibrator I own and the only massager I own. Freestyle is the most powerful vibrator I own and this is much more powerful than that little baby. I was surprised that the vibrations were so nice for clitoral use, but it excites me in seconds. The vibrations aren't super deep and rumbly and not high pitched and buzzy so they're right there in the middle where I like them. When I set it on high and it's fully charged, it quickly gets to be too intense downstairs!
I really love the Infrared Massager. With 4 different "textures" to choose from, the pivoting top and the twistability, this has plenty of different ways to use it without ever growing bored! It never fails me... even when it's almost dead!
As for power, it is strong, but the charge is decent. It will last for maybe an hour depending. If I use it on high every time I use it, it'll die quicker. I tend to use it on high for only a few minutes or for back massages and then switch to low. It lasts for about 4 sessions before dying. It will hold a charge for around 1-2 hours or less if you keep it on high. Basically, the charge will hold pretty well. The charger is similar to an old phone charger (the old ones!) It plugs into the bottom of the massager and then into the wall. It takes 2 hours to fully charge and you're ready to go!
The only thing I don't care for about the massager is the noise. It is loud! But thankfully, it doesn't sound like a vibrator. More like my epilator or an electric razor. It can be heard throughout the house, but most people will more than likely think it's a razor or maybe a massager, but not a vibrator. I use it with others in the house and nobody thinks much of it. If you use it in the bathroom, you're safe because it'll sound like a razor or epilator. However, it IS NOT waterproof!
To clean the Infrared Massager, use a toy cleaner spray, wipe or wet wash cloth. Since this is not meant to be used internally and... well, if you happen to succeed at that... wow! I'm only kidding. Don't attempt to use this internally. Unless you use the handle, it's not going to go in anyways. Since it's not an internal toy, there aren't worries with needing to go to great lengths to clean it. You may get some lubricant on it, but that can be wiped off with a damp washcloth or a really good toy spray cleaner. That's what I use. Oh, the attachments, they can be taken off and cleaned with soap and water, do what you please! They're safe as long as they are NOT still attached to the massager.
Overall, I'm very happy with this particular massager although I have nothing to compare it to, it is an awesome massager with lots of fun ways to use! It makes giving your partner a massage a little more exciting and it is different from most plain ol' back massagers.

Yes that's me in the photo wearing adorable, funky leggings! These are not the kind of leggings you see everyday and after spending longer than a year on the hunt for some really bright, unique leggings, I can say these are not easy to find! Even online it's hard to find really unique leggings. While I adore body stockings and funky printed panty hose, it was really hard to find colored leggings as neat as these. I actually found these at Stocking Store.com.
Stocking Store.com has about any legging, tight, panty hose, garter belt and ectetera that you might need. You could actually shop for your entire lingerie and hosiery wardrobe in one there. How awesome is that? Even better, they have a great selection of everyday hosiery as well as a nice collection of unique and spicy hosiery for those days (or nights!) when you want something bold.
Yes, these lovely purple tie dye leggings are wonderful! Not only do they look so neat, they fit wonderfully too. Wanna know just how comfortable these guys are? Well, I can say they're comfortable enough to lounge in for two days after a wisdom tooth extraction! Yep, I finally got that awful tooth extracted, the one that caused me so much pain that I stood on my hands for ten minutes a day over! I can now say that a really nasty toothache can truly be the worst physical pain. I dealt with mine for nearly 6 months and the past few weeks it got so painful I thought I would have a heart attack. No kidding. Now, back to these awesome leggings...
Oh, you're probably saying "oh my God! She wore those leggings for 2 days straight. EW!" Ha. Ha. No. I actually wore the purple ones today and the pink tie die leggings yesterday! Ha. These come in pink too! Two days in a row of the hottest leggings ever. Let me ask you something. Have you worn tie dyed leggings? That's what I thought, but if you're dying to have a pair as much as I was, you'll find them at Stocking Store!
These are bold and funky and they add a really nice bit of personality to a boring skirt. Those cute blue jean skirts that everybody has look amazing with these leggings and the really great part is you won't be running around looking like everybody else with your everyday legs! Lol. They also add a colorful touch to the plain LBD (Little Black Dress) that again, every female has. I have another pair of leggings from the Stocking Store and I can't wait to tell you about them. They are out of this world! Anyways, I won't give it away just yet, but they're bold and colorful and I paired them with a regular black dress and they looked amazing. The tie dyed leggings are beautiful with the black dresses too!
And if you just happen to be the kind of girl who doesn't wear dresses or skirts, I'm sure you have a pair of jeans with way too many holes in them to wear in public. Slip the funky leggings under the jeans and bam! Instead of showing your rear through all those holes, you'll be showing sexy pink (or purple) tie die! These make the old pair of jeans wearable again and they'll add some fun.
About the fit
I'm the kind of girl who hates wearing jeans. They're uncomfortable and boring. I prefer wearing dresses. They're more fun and far more comfortable! However, during the cold winter months, it's not always possible to wear a dress... unless you have some leggings! I've been wearing my regular fleece lined black leggings all winter and they're comfortable and much better than jeans everyday, but they get boring. It's always nice to be able to change your entire outfit by throwing in a simple pair of tights or leggings and it's much cheaper than going out and buying a whole new outfit!
Oh, what I was getting at up there was, leggings are more fun and comfortable than jeans, but some can cut into your waist and be a pain! The tie dyed leggings just so happen to be very comfortable. They aren't super thick, but are thicker than your average pair of panty hose. They're also more durable, you won't get runs as easily. You can trust me on that last statement! I had awful nails that needed filing and I snagged them on the leggings all day long and still have no runs thank God! They're going to last as long as you take care of them. They won't snag as easily as regular hose, but that doesn't mean they'll withstand abuse. They should be treated with care and hand washing is going to keep these babies around longer than machine washing.
With leggings these comfortable, I never want to take them off. They're comfortable enough to sleep in! No digging into your waist and leaving those dreadful lines in your skin. They're opaque too! You can't see straight through them, but if I'm standing in the light, my rear shows a little because they're tight back there. Everywhere else though, is totally opaque. I'm very impressed! The color is bold just like the photos at Stocking Store.com show. No surprises, you get what you order and it gets to you quickly!
Remember to check out the other items at Stocking Store! They carry lingerie such as corsets, panties, garter belts, bras, and of course all your hosiery, stocking and leggings needs! I have to give kudos to Stocking Store.com. I'm very satisfied with everything I've gotten from the store and it's all very good quality, durable and great prices!
While wearing the tie dyed leggings, I had a few compliments before I ever even left the house in them! A few friends and family came by to see me and saw the leggings and loved them. Before they left, they were asking me where I got them. So these are certainly a big hit! I'll be posting about the other adorable leggings as well so keep your eyes peeled for that! They're awesome!
