Similar to bug repellent, Hairy Leg Stockings were designed to ward off annoying suitors, according to Sina Weibo, China’s microblogging site. The concept must work, as people from across the globe have responded. Leg hair is apparently not popular.
Today both sexes groom their groins and get their eyebrows plucked and shaped at “brow bars.” Women add volume with hair extensions on top, and go “Brazilian” below. In the 60’s James Bond was tall dark and handsome with hairy pecs.
Now a waxed chest is sexy, and bald is a style.
Conversely, a full head of unkempt hair and beard stubble is hot in Hollywood, rather than a sign you’ve no place to clean up. Even the iconic Barbie Doll comes with purple hair, a modern alternative to platinum blonde. So many contrarian hair options, yet so much judgment over a few days of growth on the gams.
The Hairy Leg Stockings add a new meaning to the word fleeced. In our hair-obsessed society, it seems you’ll get swindled in love and relationships, if your legs need mowing. I thought the Hairy Stockings would add some fun to a Halloween Cheerleader costume, but I can’t find them anywhere on-line. Is this male repellent, fleece or faux?
